Triumph Street Scrambler Updated, Gets Limited-Edition Model
Updated engine, more premium custom style and detailing make the Street Scrambler all the more enticing
The Triumph Street Scrambler model range has been refreshed for the 2021 model year, featuring an updated engine that is now Euro-5 rated and styling tweaks. As part of the update, the British motorcycle maker is also offering a limited-edition model dubbed the Sandstorm.
The liquid-cooled, 900 cc parallel-twin engine, which also powers the Bonneville, churns out 65 PS at 7,250 rpm and 80 Nm of torque at a low 3,250 rpm. High-mounted twin exhaust pipes with brushed stainless-steel silencers give the bike its trademark growl.
Styling-wise, the Street Scrambler’s retro look has been given some premium touches in the form of a new aluminium number board, new side panels and a new seat cover texture. The throttle body finishers, heel guards and headlight brackets feature a brushed aluminium finish.
Additional details include the high grip ‘bear trap’ adventure style foot pegs, the lockable fuel tank cap and the minimal front mudguard. For 2021, the Street Scrambler can be had in Jet Black, Urban Grey or Matt Khaki/Matt Ironstone dual-tone scheme.
As before, features like Brembo 4-piston front brake caliper, 41mm cartridge forks, preload adjustable rear twin shocks, as well as 19-inch front and 17-inch rear wire-spoked wheels with wrapped in Metzeler Tourance tyres are fitted as standard.
Meanwhile, the electronics consist of switchable ABS and switchable traction control, and three riding modes, namely Rain, Road and Off-Road.
Created as a nod to the Street Scrambler’s heritage that harkens back to the old days of desert racing in El Mirage, Mojave and Baja Peninsula, the Street Scrambler Sandstorm edition adds a host of exclusive accessories that make it a little bit more special.
These include Matt Storm Grey and Ironstone accents on the tank, a high-level front mudguard, also in Matt Storm Grey, a tail tidy kit with a compact LED tail light and number plate light, a heavy-duty aluminium sump guard, a headlight grille and protective rubber knee pads on the tank.
Limited to just 775 units worldwide, the Street Scrambler Sandstorm is priced at £9,900 (RM57,724) in the UK.
