2019 versions of the Triumph Street Twin and Street Scrambler on 14th February. Both the bikes get major mechanical changes and minor styling upgrades.
Triumph Motorcycles India is set to launch the updated versions of Street Twin and Street Scrambler on 14th February. Both are the most affordable motorcycles in their lineup.
Both the updated models were showcased at Intermot 2018 in Germany. Upgrades for 2019 include minor design upgrades and heavy mechanical revisions.
That said, the styling of both the motorcycles have been retained. Triumph Street Twin is a Classic Roadster with a hint of modern touch. Street Scrambler is a scrambler-type motorcycle with spoke wheels, exposed body parts and the high-set exhaust setup.
Biggest mechanical upgrade comes in the form of a thoroughly revised engine. The 900cc parallel-twin engine now produces 65 BHP (earlier 55 BHP) and 80 Nm of peak torque.
Triumph Street Twin and Street Scrambler also get a magnesium cam cover, lighter clutch and crank shaft, to reduce the overall weight. They also get new riding modes – Road and Rain.
Changes in the cycle parts include new 41mm KYB forks at the front paired up with retained KYB dual-shock absorbers at the back. Switchable Traction control and ABS are standard equipment now.
Last set of mechanical changes include 4-piston calipers replacing the 2-piston units. At the front, both the motorcycles get a 310mm disc now. At the end, Scrambler gets a 255mm disc and Triumph Street Twin gets a new 220mm unit.
Visual upgrades onboard include a redesigned seat and a revised instrument cluster. Street Twin gets a new Matte Black colour option and Scrambler gets new graphics.
We expect the prices of both the motorcycles to increase by around Rs 20,000. Currently, Street Twin goes for Rs 7.70 Lakhs and Scrambler goes for Rs 8.6 Lakhs (ex-showroom).
As of now, Street Twin does not have any competitors in India. Scrambler goes against Ducati Scrambler, which is priced at Rs 6.78 Lakhs onwards (ex-showroom prices).
