For 2019, Triumph Motorcycles had updated the Street Twin and the Street Scrambler and now, they finally make their way to India. Both motorcycles get a whole bunch of updates but in this story, we tell you what all is new on the 2019 Triumph Street Scrambler and what all could you expect. For 2019, the Street Scrambler gets better off-road capability, and although it still shares its 900 cc Bonneville High Torque engine with the Street Twin, the tuning is different, and there are few other changes in the 2019 Street Scrambler as well, to make it more off-road capable.
To begin with, the 2019 Triumph Street Scrambler gets small, subtle changes to the looks which constitute of a new 'Triumph' logo on the fuel tank, a new instrument console with a small digital gauge along with a bunch of redesigned bits such as the headlamp bracket, front fender and the triple clamp as well. The handlebars on the motorcycle are now wider at 835 mm and the new cartridge-type front forks too are spaced out wider giving the Street Scrambler better road presence and an aggressive stance. The front forks themselves are new units but have the same 120 mm of travel as earlier and are non-adjustable. Triumph is now offering a Brembo four-piston calliper for the front brake. So, these sum up the changes on the design and cycle parts bit.

Coming to the engine, the 2019 Street Scrambler now gets improved output. It still gets the 900 cc 'High-Torque' parallel-twin engine which gets new and lighter components such as the crankshaft, dead shafts and balancer shafts along with a magnesium cam cover and a lighter clutch. Also, the compression ratio of the engine has been upped from 10.6:1 to 11:1 with increased lift for intake and exhaust valves. All this technical mumbo jumbo means that the motorcycle gets an 18 per cent bump in power, from 54 bhp to 64 bhp, which comes in at 7,500 rpm and the torque output now stands at 80 Nm, all of which kicks in at 3,200 rpm. The motorcycle also gets three riding mode, which are road, rain and off-road. ABS and traction control are switched off when you select the off-road mode.
So yes! In terms of expectations, the new Triumph Street Scrambler will offer better performance, more fun and better off-road capabilities. Sure, it will not be an out and out off-road motorcycle but definitely looks capable for mild trails. With added features and improved output, this looks like a good proposition.
The current Street Scrambler is priced at Rs. 8.6 lakh and we expect a small premium on the updated model. Expect the 2019 Street Scrambler to be priced at about Rs. 9 lakh or so. With better performance and an off-road mode, the 2019 Triumph Street Scrambler promises to be even more fun! At that price and output, it will go up against the Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled, whose prices start at Rs. 9.32 lakh. All prices mentioned here are ex-showroom, Delhi.
