Taking its cues from the stripped down desert sleds of the 1960s, the Scrambler reprises Triumph’s rich heritage in off-road competition in a modern road-biased package.

Back in the day, competitors would take their Triumph twins, strip them down and fit dirt tyres and suspension, not to mention high level exhausts, and head out on the rough terrain. These Triumphs were hugely competitive in enduro competition and famously ridden by Hollywood star Steve McQueen in the 1964 International Six Day Trial (ISDT) in the former East Germany.

The Scrambler takes its inspiration from those ISDT machines with its classic styling dominated by the twin high level exhausts, designed to provide maximum ground clearance on rough terrain.

Spoked wheels with lightly knobbled tyres, high footrests, rugged fork gaiters and wide off-road style handlebars give a further nod to the Scrambler’s off-road heritage.

The utilitarian style is highlighted by the two simple single colour options, with a new Matt Black option joining the popular military style Matt Khaki Green, with a whole range of official Triumph accessories available to further personalise the Scrambler. Items such as headlight grilles, skid plate and number boards can turn the Scrambler into a real ISDT replica, while fly screen and leather luggage options cater for the large number of Scrambler owners who enjoy tackling the urban jungle each and every day.

Powering the Scrambler is a unique version of Triumph’s 865cc parallel-twin. Designed outwardly to look like a classic 1960s twin, this DOHC eight-valve unit is a low maintenance modern engine developed to meet the most stringent emissions regulations.

The fuel-injected twin delivers a laid back 59PS, with 68Nm of torque at just 4750rpm making the Scrambler a breeze to ride in all conditions. With its 270- degree crankshaft, the Scrambler takes on a totally different character to the other models in Triumph’s classic range, producing a totally addictive off-beat soundtrack which can be cranked up a notch with the fitment of the offroad Arrow exhaust system available as part of Triumph’s genuine accessories range.
