An unparalleled Triumph Scrambler heritage

Launched in 2017, the Street Scrambler’s incredible bloodline has an unparalleled history that began in the early 1960s. The original Bonneville was credited with being a race winner straight out of the crate and the bike of choice for dirt and desert racers to strip and modify, giving rise to the first dedicated scrambler factory specials, including the Bonneville T-120TT. Stripped back, lighter and more powerful, this was the bike that ignited the Scrambler scene.

Reintroduced to the Triumph lineup in 2006, the Scrambler very quickly became the genesis of a whole new sub-category. In 2017, the Street Scrambler added a unique contemporary style, conquering the hearts of many riders, journalists, and bloggers thanks to its fun and accessible urban scrambler character.

Updated High Torque Bonneville engine

The new 2022 Street Scrambler is powered by the 900cc high-torque Bonneville twin-cylinder engine. The liquid-cooled powerplant retains all of its 64HP peak power, distinctive Scrambler character, and incredible responsiveness and now delivers lower emissions, exceeding Euro 5 requirements, and superb fuel efficiency. It also delivers incredible torque from low down, right through the rev range for strong responsiveness and acceleration, with 59 FT-LB peak torque at a low 3,250rpm.

The unmistakable sound of the iconic British twin comes courtesy of the Street Scrambler’s signature high-level twin exhaust system with brushed stainless-steel silencers, giving a unique exhaust note that matches its distinctive character. A high first major service interval of 10,000 miles ensures a low cost of ownership.

More premium custom style and detailing

The new 2022 Street Scrambler delivers the unmistakable scrambler style and silhouette, born from the original Triumph Scramblers, which started the entire desert racing scene in the 1960s. Maintaining that authentic character and timeless DNA, the Street Scrambler features distinctive wide-spaced forks, high-level twin exhaust, minimal bodywork, wide handlebars, and wire-spoked wheels with black hubs and rims.

For the new 2022 generation, additional premium touches and details have been added, including the new aluminum number board with an embossed Street Scrambler logo, incorporated into the new side panel. The throttle body finishers, heel guards, and headlight brackets, all of which feature a brushed aluminum finish, are also new for this latest generation of the Street Scrambler, as well as the new leather and textile inspired seat covering.

Additional Scrambler-defining details include the high grip ‘bear trap’ adventure style foot pegs, the elegantly shaped tank with lockable cap, and the minimal front mudguard. As with all the bikes in Triumph’s Modern Classic family, the Street Scrambler’s black coated engine features the signature-shaped Bonneville engine covers with their Triumph makers-mark badge, complimented by a finned head and header clamps.

The 2022 Street Scrambler is available in 3 premium paint schemes: the classic Jet Black, a new contemporary Urban Grey, or the new twin color Matte Khaki and Matte Ironstone scheme, featuring distinctive new tank graphics.

Premium specification & equipment for enhanced rideability

The Street Scrambler’s dedicated chassis set-up delivers its commanding riding position with a unique frame, wide aluminum handlebars, and mid-position foot pegs – a combination that inspires confidence and gives great visibility in traffic. Excellent stopping power, with great bite and feel, is provided by the high specification Brembo 4-piston front brake caliper.

With 120mm of front and rear wheel travel, the high specification 41mm cartridge forks and preload adjustable twin shocks enable the rider to feel confident and comfortable on longer journeys or when tackling light off-road surfaces. The long-travel forks are finished with traditional rubber gaiters, while the rear suspension features grey springs and black shrouds, adding to the bike’s iconic Scrambler style.

The Street Scrambler’s 19” front and 17” rear blacked-out wire-spoked wheels are equipped with dual-purpose Metzeler Tourance tires for great grip, durability, and precise handling in all conditions. The low 31” seat height adds to the confident feel and is complemented by a narrow stand-over width, enabling riders to comfortably reach the ground when stationary, making this model extremely accessible, easy to maneuver, and fun for every type of rider.

Advanced rider-focused technology

The new 2022 Street Scrambler maintains all of its high level of advanced rider-focused technology, ensuring the best riding experience while maximizing safety and control. Switchable ABS and switchable traction control are fitted as standard, optimizing torque delivery when traction is compromised. Three riding modes (Rain, Road, and Off-Road), enabled via the ride-by-wire technology, which adjusts the throttle map and traction control settings to suit riding conditions or rider preference, ensuring optimum performance in wet or dry conditions. The Off-Road mode turns the ABS and traction control off, enabling the rider to have complete control over the rear wheel when on loose surfaces.

A torque-assist clutch for light and easy operation is also fitted as standard, which represents a particular advantage when riding in heavy traffic or when enjoying light off-road riding, making the bike easier to ride for longer. The clocks feature an analog speedometer and a digital menu system, which is easily accessed via intuitive handlebar-mounted buttons. The under-seat USB charger, key-fob-incorporated immobilizer, and the compact, power-efficient and elegant LED rear light complete the high specification technology package.

Built to personalize with 120 Genuine Triumph Accessories

As with all Triumph Modern Classics, the new 2022 Street Scrambler is built to personalize, with a huge range of 120 genuine Triumph accessories for additional protection, comfort, off-road style, enhanced capability, and security. These include a range of rugged and durable luggage options, plus accessories for greater everyday usability, like heated grips, center stand, short and tall screens, adjustable levers, and engine protectors. Accessories for additional off-road focus include the high-level front mudguard, headlight grille, stainless steel sump guard, and adjustable piggyback Fox rear shocks, while the traditional Scrambler style bench seat and machined handlebar clamp add even more premium custom style.

All Genuine Triumph Accessories have been designed and engineered alongside the bike for perfect integration and are tested to the same exacting quality standards. They all come with a two-year unlimited mileage warranty.

2022 Street Scrambler Sandstorm Limited Edition

The unique and stylish new 2022 Street Scrambler Sandstorm limited edition celebrates the timeless bloodline of Triumph Scrambler desert rides from El Mirage to the Mojave, to Barstow and the legendary Baja Peninsula. It takes the latest generation Street Scrambler, which is updated for 2022, and adds a unique and contemporary Sandstorm Edition paint scheme and even more rugged style and detailing, with a host of premium accessories fitted as standard.

The custom Sandstorm paint scheme incorporates Matte Storm Grey and Ironstone accents on the tank in a unique new tri-tone style, plus a Matte Storm Grey factory-fitted high-level front mudguard. Adding to the contemporary urban scrambler style, the Sandstorm limited edition features the premium Triumph accessory tail tidy as standard, incorporating a compact LED taillight and number plate light (market restrictions may apply), plus a heavy-duty aluminum sump guard, a stylish headlight grille with subtle Triumph branding and protective rubber knee pads on the tank. All of these are factory-fitted accessories that come as standard only on the Sandstorm limited edition.

Only 775 of the Street Scrambler Sandstorm limited edition will be produced worldwide, and adding even more exclusivity, each will come with a unique personalized certificate of authenticity stating the bike’s VIN.

The Sandstorm edition of course also benefits from the same upgrades and enhancements that have been introduced on the standard Street Scrambler for 2022, including the update to the thrilling torque-rich Bonneville engine, and the new premium custom styling details.
