Triumph Scrambler

An off-road bike

There is no such thing as bad terrain, only bad bikes. The Triumph Scrambler is one of the bikes that exploits off-road performance to the fullest, with it there are no limits. An ideal bike for those looking for a bike with a higher height and fun to ride. The definition of an all-road, ready for any challenge and any surface.

Triumph Scrambler History

The adventure of a lifetime

There are no impossible roads, that's a rule the Triumph Scrambler always complies with. The Scrambler bikes first emerged as the off-road bet of the air-cooled neoclassics. In a panorama where the Bonneville and Thruxton were already available, both of which were geared towards tarmac surfaces, the Triumph Scrambler was aimed and designed for those action lovers looking for more exciting routes.

Triumph Scrambler: origin

More exciting routes

The Triumph Scrambler has its origins in the 1956 Triumph TR6, a motorcycle that created a style that would endure for almost 20 years, marking a little-known milestone in the history of motorcycling. It would take 30 years for Triumph, the legendary British brand, to revive this off-road concept.

Off-road concept

Scrambler motorcycles are the British adaptation of an American phenomenon, the California desert races. The first British motorcycles, which were successful in 1951, were single-cylinder 4-strokes such as the AJS, Matchless and BSA.

The terrain where these races took place was already complicated in itself, but if you added to that the number of riders taking part in the races, the handling of the bikes became more and more complicated as the laps went by. This meant that riders were increasingly looking for bikes with more speed, power and handling.

Triumph Scrambler: models

No pavement? No problem

First launched in 2006, the Triumph Scrambler range made a strong entry into the air-cooled neoclassic family. Since then, it has taken until 2019 to return to new models that are pure Scrambler.

Triumph Scrambler Engines

Purely Scrambler

First up is the Triumph Scrambler 900, this bike was produced from 2006 to 2016 in both fuel configurations, carburetted until 2008 and electronically injected until 2016. More up to date, the Triumph Scrambler 1200 is one of the new additions of the last few years, an increase in cylinder capacity to 1200cc and combining all the improvements of the water-cooled.

The 1200 has been somewhat replaced by the Triumph Scrambler 1200 XE, the latest release that goes one step further than the 1200. The XE has won out with its improvements, definitely, for those looking to give a more extreme use to the bike.

Triumph Scrambler: features and styles

All terrains

Despite being an engine that fits into two, a priori, opposing trends; Triumph Scrambler motorcycles are represented by common characteristics such as high exhausts, great height and mixed tyres. As such, it is considered the best choice for an off-road motorcycle, although some of its sub-models could fit into a more classic style.

For example, it would be a huge mistake to want to do something classic with a Scrambler 1200 XE, for this case, you could opt for a Scrambler 900 as its lines are less aggressive.
