For (re) beginners and downsizers

Triumph, not Ducati, has brought the Scrambler back to modern times. The Bonneville-based 865, launched in 2006, was absolutely beautiful, but only partially good. “Better in every way!” Should be the new one. Is it all well and good? Driving report from sunny Seville.

The group of neat early forties who sips their café con leche on Saturday afternoons in some street café in the far end of Andalusia agrees: four enchanting smiles and thumbs up for the casual bikers. We feel flattered, although their sympathies probably less us, but mainly the new triumph S.treet scrambler should apply. The look of the Street Twin sister in the lumberjack shirt immediately appeals to almost everyone. Chic, sleepwalking stylish, somehow still modern, high quality. And on top of that, one of the coolest names in business is on the tank – Triumph. If anyone is allowed to indulge in nostalgia so unabashedly and not have to be accused of plagiarism, then the team from Hinckley.

For (re) beginners and downsizers

Disproportionately more torque at the bottom

But please, that was already possible for her predecessor. At least for those who bought it, who rolled around with it a little according to the purpose and were not interested in scoring. In the tough reality of objective motorcycle journalism, however, the old 865 Scrambler saw little land. Not exactly light, not exactly strong, a bit top-heavy, pretty bloodless and stubborn at the back – there were more capable motorcycles, even in the earlier-everything-was-better genre. More dedicated. Triumph knows that too. And therefore full-bodied proclaims that the new Triumph Street Scrambler should now be able to “really do everything better” (slightly tongue-in-cheek interview) than the old one. For this purpose, the Street Twin, launched at the beginning of last year, with a water-cooled in-line twin cylinder using a 19-inch front wheel, spoked wheels, high-level exhaust, modified ergonomics, some chassis tuning and all sorts of optical retouches to create the Triumph Street Scrambler. So no update of the air-cooled 865, but a new bike.

And one that can actually do everything better – beforehand – except for one thing: producing top performance. While the 58, frankly, rather tired nags of the old scramblers didn’t exactly cause sweat to sweat under their jet helmets, 55 HP must now be enough for the Triumph Street Scrambler. In return, however, the new engine has disproportionately more torque, ergo punch, in the lowest speed range. Triumph promises a powerful 80 Nm on turbo-diesel 2,850 tours, which is almost 30 percent more than the previous engine, and this is how it becomes a shoe.

Wonderfully lyrical engine run, precise gear

Very early on, the 270-degree twin stretches forward with a melodious sonorous roar, pushing effortlessly, confidently and powerfully. This underscores the down-to-earth character of the new Triumph Street Scrambler, fits the target group (returnees, downsizers and Dahingleiter) and the intended use (urban to relaxed over the country). After that, however, from around 4,500 tours, the flood of torque becomes a trickle, and not much happens. Courageous, but actually consistent, to tune the engine as a relaxed, unspectacular down-everything unit. Even if it means that a Golf needs to be carefully prepared for overtaking on the country road.

The Kraxler clientele may and should not care. You will find out more about the excellent manners, diplomatically correct throttle response, the pleasant, finely pulsing, wonderfully balanced engine run, the exact gearbox with very satisfactory gear changes, servo-assisted clutch and, last but not least, the low consumption (Street Twin: 4.5 liters in the test , less is possible).

Upright, comfortable, manageable seat height

More important than the highly subjective discussion about how much power is enough (remember the first time you had 55 hp under your bum): The new Triumph Street Scrambler drives very smoothly and much more nimbly than the previous model, because the The vehicle’s center of gravity seems to have moved significantly downwards. And also, incidentally, more neutral than the other Street Twin variant presented at the same time, the Triumph Street Cup.

The Triumph Street Scrambler is trustworthy and stable, steers evenly, reliably, animating it to sweep, but not dogged cornering – really fun and pretty foolproof. The Metzeler Tourance is fully there from the first meter and has perfect grip, just enough lean angle. A little bit of gravel is also possible, but ABS and traction control can be deactivated with a few push of a button on the handlebars.

The spring elements are of the simplest design (120 millimeters of spring travel front and rear, preload adjustable at the rear) and do their job a little tight, but honest and solid – no more, no less. The same can be said for the single disc system that the delay service pushes on the front wheel. They can be controlled well and the braking effect is okay, but the ABS hardly puts the Nissin two-piston caliper in any trouble on dry asphalt. On the Triumph Street Scrambler, you are welcome to brake at the rear, also because this significantly reduces the righting moment when braking in an inclined position. A few keywords about ergonomics: upright, comfortable (great upholstered bench with fine seams), manageable seat height, narrow waist, handlebars high, not excessively wide and ideally cranked. In short: wholesome for every day. There is of course no wind protection.

Everything looks noble and durable

And so once again to perhaps the most important characteristic of the Triumph Street Scrambler – its sparkling clean design. It wasn’t always like that, but what’s coming from Hinckley right now just feels like good quality. All surfaces, whether paintwork, motor housing, brushed aluminum, the lettering, everything looks noble and durable. All cables are neatly laid, no ugly hoses or plug connections are visible anywhere, even the small water cooler, supported by finely milled engine cooling fins, was so cleverly hidden between the frame rails that it does not disturb the classic line. If the Triumph Street Scrambler is below the middle class in terms of performance, it is a league above it with its great finish.

And price? In the middle. 10,700 euros (a fair 1,800 euros surcharge compared to the much simpler Street Twin) are not necessarily a special offer, but the equivalent of the 223 kilograms of the Triumph Street Scrambler, which is perhaps a little too proper, is in view of the loving design and, not least, the stylish appearance order.

Nice and good? Compared to its predecessor, it is at least as beautiful and actually “better in every way”. Only bean counters and motorcycle journalists would be upset about the lack of horsepower.
