Triumph @ EICMA 2016: New generation Bonneville range grows further with arrival of new Street Scrambler.
The mighty British marque that is Triumph made its cool presence felt here in Milan. While most of its new 2017 models were unveiled prior, it still had one more to show off. Here what went down for Triumph @ EICMA 2016.
Meet the very latest addition into the hip and cool new generation Bonneville line up, the Street Twin-based Street Scrambler. The arrival of the new Bonneville’s retro scrambler offshoot sees it replacing the last Triumph Scrambler model.
Based off the Street Twin, the Street Scrambler also utilises the same new 900cc ‘High Torque’ parallel-twin mill as found in the base bike primed with ride-by-wire throttle. Also primed on board are switchable ABS and traction control suites.
The powertrain is encased in a new and dedicated chassis, allowing it gain with new high-travel suspension front and aft plus the larger 19-inch front and 17-inch rear wheel wrapped in Metzeller dual-purpose tyres.
Typical of any retro scrambler, the handlebars have been raised higher but we particularly love the new high-mounted stainless steel twin exhaust pipes running down the right side that looks simply exquisite.
Other changes can be seen in the adoption of more rugged bear claw-styled footpegs, the addition of a bash plate on the underside of the powertrain, as well as a detachable pillion perch. You can replace it with small aluminium rack for a more rugged stance.
The remaining on board features mirror what we’ve already seen in the existing Triumph Street Twin such as the under-seat USB charging port, retro-styled single instrument display dial, not forgetting the LED taillight.
Of course, if this isn’t enough for you, then worry not because Triumph will prepare yet another rich catalogue of accessories for you to customise with – just like its other siblings.

Also on display alongside the new Street Scrambler were the other new additions in the Bonneville line up, namely the Street Cup café racer, Bonneville T100 classic twins and the cool new Bonneville Bobber.
Unveiled during INTERMOT 2016 last month were both the Bonneville T100 and Street Cup. While the Street Cup’s position as the ‘baby’ Thruxton R, the Bonneville T100 and T100 Black shares a more direct link to the previous generation Bonneville T100 model.
For us though, the Bonneville Bobber is truly something special. What Triumph has done is essentially take the Bonneville T120 platform made it over into a proper feet-forward, low-seat cruiser.
