2011 Triumph Scrambler Launched

British motorcycle brand Triumph has recently launched the 2011 Scarmbler 865cc model, which takes its cues from the stripped down desert bikes of the 1960s. The bike’s classic off-road styling houses a modern engineered package, dominated by the twin high level exhausts, designed to provide maximum ground clearance on rough terrain.

Spoked wheels with lightly knobbed tyres, high footrests, rugged fork gaiters and wide off-road style handlebars, add to Scrambler’s off-road heritage.

The 2011 Scrambler comes in single color options: Jet Black and a military style Matt Khaki Green, with a whole range of official Triumph accessories available to further personalise the bike.

Items such as headlight grilles, skid plate and number boards can turn the Scrambler into a real ISDT replica, while fly screen and leather luggage options appeal the those who enjoy  tackling the urban jungle.

Powering the Scrambler is a unique version of Triumph’s 865cc DOHC eight-valve parallel-twin engine, designed to look like a classic 1960s twin unit.

The powerplant delivers 59 hp and 68 Nm (50 lb.ft.) of torque at 4750 rpm, while the sound of the exhaust can be enhanced with the fitment of the off-road Arrow exhaust system available as part of Triumph’s genuine accessories range.

“Back in the day, competitors would take their Triumph twins, strip them down and fit dirt tires and suspension, not to mention high level exhausts, and head out on the rough terrain. These Triumphs were hugely competitive in enduro competition and famously ridden by Hollywood star Steve McQueen in the 1964 International Six Day Trial (ISDT) in the former East Germany,” Triumph brags in a company statement.
