Channel Your Inner Steve McQueen With this All-New Triumph Scrambler
It doesn’t get more manly than this.
Triumph has heard your call to channel your inner Steve McQueen with more fence-leaping scrambler-style British twin-cylinder motorcycles like the one he rode in The Great Escape, and has released a new edition better suited to asphalt getaways.
The Street Scrambler uses the muscular water-cooled 900cc parallel twin-cylinder engine that debuted in last year’s Bonneville, but adds the obligatory high exhaust pipe, 19-inch front wheel, long-travel shock absorbers and rubber gaiter on the fork tubes.
Available colors include Jet Black, Matte Khaki Green, Korosi Red, and Frozen Silver, which are matched with a blacked-out engine, transmission, forks, fenders and wheel rims. A room seat gives the rider space to move around while traversing obstacles and the wide handlebar provides ample leverage.
Sadly, the Street Scrambler is the only street-centric version of the bike coming to the U.S. Triumph has also added a racy Sport Cup model to the line, but for now, it is only for Europe. Maybe next year.
