Triumph’s extensive off-road lineage has been defined by modified street bikes like the TR6R Steve McQueen sported in The Great Escape and the Bonneville David Beckham navigated through the Amazon. Triumph launched their first official Scrambler series from 2006-2016, echoing the iconic Speed Twin and TR5 Trophy from the 1950’s. While reliable and stylish, these first Scramblers are still essentially Bonnevilles with high-mounted pipes and knobby tires.
The Scrambler finally got a proper off-road treatment in 2017 when Triumph released the Street Scrambler. Still remaining faithful to the retro style, the revamped model comes with a slough of new performance features.
