Triumph to expand its portfolio in India
Triumph Motorcycles is planning to expand its product range in the Indian markets. According to reports by online auto news portal CarandBike the British motorbike maker will unveil the Street Scrambler in India on August 24, 2017.
The scrambler-styled motorcycle is based on the Street Twin and will expand Triumph’s portfolio in India. The Street Scrambler shares its design cues with the Bonneville. The bike has least body work and has features like side-mounted exhaust, removable pillion foot pegs, interchangeable pillion seat and aluminum rack and engine bash plate.
Apart from this the Street Scrambler sports tweaked riding posture for comfort with lower and narrower seat compared to the Street Twin. The engine is attached to the revised steel cradle chassis. Triumph’s Street Scrambler draws power from the existing 900cc parallel-twin engine thus producing a peak power of 54bhp against 80Nm of torque. The engine has been upgraded to give better results like more power in the lower rev band and better throttle response.
Triumph’s motorbikes come with ride-by-wire throttle, traction control and ABS as its safety features. It is equipped with KYB forks up front and dual shocks at the rear. A 310mm front disc with Nissin 2-piston floating caliper and a 255mm disc at the rear is provided in the bike to ensure the safety while riding the bike. The motorbike has additional scrambler-style equipment to enhance the off-road capabilities of the bike.
The Street Scrambler might be priced at Rs.8 lakh(ex-showroom) and might lock horns against the Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled in India.
