-2019 Street Twin priced at Rs 7.45 lakhs; Street Scrambler retails at Rs 8.55 lakhs
-Get retuned engine, slight cosmetic changes and better brakes
-Electronic package updated with ride modes.
Both bikes get a cosmetic, mechanical and electronic overhaul for 2019. Triumph has reconfigured the 900cc, parallel-twin engine to produce 64bhp; a 10bhp increase compared to the outgoing bike. This unit, however, continues to put out 80Nm of torque and is mated to a five-speed gearbox with a torque-assist clutch. Furthermore, the bikes also get an updated electronics package with USB charging port, ride-by-wire and ride modes; Road and Rain for the Street Twin which adjust the throttle map and traction control settings. The Street Scrambler also gets an additional Off-Road mode that switches off the ABS and traction control completely.
The manufacturer has also upgraded the braking hardware on both motorcycles at the front with a four-piston Brembo caliper with a 310mm disc. The rear continues with the two-pot Nissin caliper and 255mm disc. The Street Twin and Street Scrambler’s 41mm cartridge forks have also been retuned for better damping.
As for styling, there are a few subtle changes like a new seat, redesigned side panels and brushed aluminium headlamp brackets. To add fresher appeal, the Street Scrambler gets new graphics while the Street Twin gets a new matte black colour option. The Street Twin and Street Scrambler use similar underpinnings but offer completely different characteristics. The Street Scrambler like its name is a scrambler-styled motorcycle with spoke wheels; 19-inch in front and 17-inch at the rear shod with dual-purpose tyres. The bike also gets high-mounted exhaust pipes that add to its mild off-road ability. The Street Twin on the other hand is inspired by classic motorcycles but gets blacked-out components that give it a modern feel. Since it is road-biased, the bike gets 17-inch alloy wheels on both ends.
Triumph is offering the 2019 Street Twin in two kits; Urban Ride and Café Custom. While the Urban Ride kit gets a brown seat, black engine sump guard, cropped rear fender and a soft case pannier, the Café Custom kit offers Vance and Hines exhausts, cropped rear fender and Fox rear suspension.
The Street Scrambler gets a Urban Tracker custom kit that offers a high-set mudguard, different seat, engine guard, headlamp mesh guard, a pannier along with a Vance and Hines exhaust. While the Street Twin competes against the Ducati Scrambler Icon, the Street Scrambler rivals the Ducati Desert Sled in India.
