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 last 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 that triumphed 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 also added the number of riders who participated in these races, the handling of the bikes became more and more complicated as the laps went by. All this forced the riders to look for bikes with more and more speed, power and handling.

Triumph Scrambler: features and styles

All terrains

Despite being an engine that fits into two trends, a priori, contrary to each other; Triumph Scrambler motorcycles are represented by common features such as the high exhaust, its great height and its mixed tires. Therefore, 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 tremendous 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.
