THE ORIGINAL BRITISH SUPERBIKE

Named to celebrate the 1956 motorcycle land speed record smashing Triumph streamliner and built to deliver class leading performance, adding twin carbs to the snarling Tiger 110, the 59 Bonneville was born. A race winner straight out of the crate, Bonneville was there at the birth of modern motorsport, winning AMA Flat Track races, the Isle of Man TT, the International Six Day Trials and countless Thruxton 500 races, where it got its legendary racing name. Lusted after by a generation of 60’s teenage rockers it was first choice for famous bikers including the iconic movie star Steve McQueen.

 

BONNEVILLE ENGINE FAMILY

A new generation Bonneville engine family built specifically for the modern classic riding style, with more torque, more immediate and exciting power delivery and a richer sound you can really feel and hear. With three new engines – the 900cc high torque engine of the new Street Twin and Street Cup and Bonneville T100 and T100 Black – delivering 18% more peak torque than the previous generation, the 1200cc high torque engine of the Bonneville T120 and T120 Black with over 54% more torque, and the game changing 1200cc high power ‘Thruxton spec’ engine which punches out over 62% more than torque the previous Thruxton 900.

All with truly modern capability, including ride-by-wire, for sharper responsiveness and liquid cooling for amazing fuel economy, 36% improvement on the Bonneville T100 alone.

 

NOW EVERYONE CAN BUILD THEIR OWN ICON

With our Bonneville custom accessories range presenting over 400 new stylish high quality parts, it’s never been easier to create your own custom. This includes exhausts from Vance & Hines and a garage full of custom inspired parts, from tail tidys to bench seats and beautiful compact bullet indicators to name only a few.

Ready to personalise, you can choose from over 150 accessories to add even more off-road attitude and style.

 

PREMIUM FINISHES

Crafted to the highest of standards with a host of premium finishes, including real brushed aluminium tank decals, gun-metal finish engine badges and dedicated scrambler mirrors for better visibility.

There are three exciting paint schemes to choose from, Jet Black, Matt Kaki Green and a twin colour scheme Korosi Red / Frozen Silver finished with jet black hand painted coach lining.

 

STRIPPED BACK CUSTOM STYLING

The Street Scrambler is built on the unmistakable Bonneville silhouette and iconic styling cues, with clean lines, minimal bodywork and contemporary finishes.

The Scrambler’s custom styling includes an elegantly shaped fuel tank, black sculpted engine covers and stylish engine badge. It also features a single throttle body with aluminium finisher, minimal side panels and rear mudguard, signature clean line ‘hidden cat box’ pipe run, brushed headers along with finned head and header clamps for that contemporary Bonneville look.

The new Street Scrambler is available in three exciting paint schemes.

 

DISTINCTIVE SCRAMBLER FEATURES

The Scrambler’s distinctive new features include:

Ribbed Alcantara-style seat, with contrast stitching and Triumph embossed logo.

Interchangeable pillion seat and elegant laser cut aluminium rear rack for even more practicality.

Removable pillion pegs and hangers, ‘Bear Trap’ adventure style front footpegs, uniquely detailed knee pads, aluminium headlight bracket and black headlight bezel, all-terrain style bash plate and number board side panel.

 

WHEELS, TYRES AND BRAKES

Contributing to the Street Scrambler’s commanding riding position and signature silhouette are classic wire spoked wheels. The Scrambler has an impressive 19 inch front wheel and 17 inch rear wheel, both with stylish steel blacked out hubs and rims.

Dual purpose Metzeler Tourance Tyres provide great grip and light precise handling, making riding easier whatever the weather conditions or road surface. Developed for modern street orientated enduro bikes, these tyres provide maximum mileage on the street and great traction on light off-road surfaces.

The Street Scrambler is also fitted with a twin piston sliding axial Nissin front caliper with machined branding.

 

MORE CAPABILITY CHASSIS AND SUSPENSION

With a dedicated Scrambler chassis and suspension the Street Scrambler is even more capable, with a more dynamic scrambler poise, commanding riding position, sure handling and great accessibility and a host of unique equipment.

The Street Scrambler chassis set-up is tuned to deliver a neutral and predictable ride. This, combined with a confidence inspiring evolution to ‘stand-over’ ergonomics for manoeuvrability and low seat height makes it a really accessible and fun bike for every type of rider, delivering maximum confidence and control.

 

DYNAMIC SCRAMBLER ERGONOMICS

To live up to its name and rider expectations, the Street Scrambler has been developed to deliver more scrambler focused ergonomics, without compromise to everyday riding comfort. Compared to the Street Twin, this includes a unique main frame and chassis set up with wider handlebars and more forward set footpegs.

This, combined with dedicated longer front and rear suspension and bigger 19 inch front wheel, delivers a commanding riding position for urban and open road riding, and a great light off-road riding position which includes standing.

 

DEDICATED SCRAMBLER SHOCKS AND FORKS

The Street Scrambler has longer model specific rear suspension units (RSU’s), finished in matt black, lifting the rear end for additional ride height.

There are also model specific front suspension forks that are longer than those on the standard Street Twin, providing increased ground clearance that lives up to its Scrambler name.

The front suspension forks come with traditional styled rubber fork gaiters.

 

THRILLING SCRAMBLER SOUNDTRACK

The Street Scrambler features a compact twin high-level exhaust system with brushed stainless steel headers that follow a beautifully crafted flowing line.

The intricate header run cleverly integrates the cat box invisibly between the heat shield and the engine barrel and is finished off with brushed stainless steel silencers and contrasting stylish black heat shields.

Just like all Bonnevilles, the Street Scrambler’s exhaust is tuned to deliver a rich and full British Twin Scrambler soundtrack.

 

THRILLING PERFORMANCE, SOUND & RIDING EXPERIENCE

The new Street Scrambler’s engine, exhaust and rider-focused-technology, boasts several major enhancements over previous generations, offering more performance and a better riding experience. Technology enhancements include switchable ABS – a unique feature for the Street Scrambler.

 

CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED 900cc ‘HIGH-TORQUE’ ENGINE

The Street Scrambler features the same critically acclaimed 900cc high-torque Bonneville engine as the Street Twin, delivering thrilling performance and enhanced fuel economy.

The 900cc engine has an 8 valve single overhead camshaft parallel-twin with 270° firing interval for a smooth, linear power delivery from the slick five-speed gearbox, and has been specifically tuned to deliver much more torque and power low-down and in the mid-range – just where you need it.

 

Technology

 

LED Rear light

The LED rear light has been incorporated into a compact and elegant tail set-up that gives the Street Scrambler a distinctive light pattern and greater power efficiency for long term durability.

USB charging socket

An under-seat socket is provided for convenient charging of your essential devices.

 

Ride by Wire

The Street Scrambler’s electronic ride-by-wire system enhances throttle response, providing smooth and precise drive for a higher level of control and rideability.

 

Switchable ABS

Triumph’s anti-lock braking system brings an advanced level of control and safety to the Street Scrambler, with minimal visual impact. The ABS can be turned off via the instrument menu, which is a unique feature for the Street Scrambler.

 

Switchable Traction Control

The Street Scrambler incorporates a switchable traction control system that optimises the delivery of torque when traction is compromised to maximise rider safety and control.

 

Torque-Assist Clutch

The Street Scrambler’s torque-assist clutch system reduces the clutch packaging, allowing for a narrower engine profile. It also brings a light touch and feel to the clutch control, helping reduce clutch lever effort for the rider, making it easy to ride.
