2009 Triumph Scrambler

2009 Triumph Scrambler09 Triumph Scrambler

Triumph’s popular retro model, the Scrambler, gets a tough new look for 2009, thanks to an attitude-filled Matt Khaki Green colour scheme echoing military bikes of the 1950s and 1960s.

The Scrambler, which takes its design cues from 1960s off-road Triumphs made famous by Steve McQueen in The Great Escape, represents a fresh take on the iconic bikes from the company’s rich tradition.

Very few motorcycles can claim to be unique but Triumph’s Scrambler, thanks to its authentic styling, is most certainly one of them. Using a strong tubular steel cradle frame and supple front and rear suspension the Scrambler is built tough, to iron out the bumps. Its high, wide handlebars and high-set footpegs further aid control and low-speed manoeuvrability. The spoked wheels with lightly-knobbled tyres acknowledge the Scrambler’s off-road heritage, as do stylish the high level twin exhausts and purposeful single headlamp.

Mechanically the Scrambler remains unchanged and is powered by a 60PS, 270 degree crankshaft, version of Triumph’s venerable 865cc air-cooled parallel twin engine which delivers torquey performance accompanied by an addictive off-beat twin exhaust note.

A full range of official accessories are also available for the 2009 Scrambler. In addition to a number of practical accessories designed to tailor the functionality of the bike to the individual rider, Triumph is also offering an exquisite two-into-one Arrow exhaust system and a variety of styling options to enable owners to personalise their Scrambler.

In addition to Matt Khaki Green, the 2009 Triumph Scrambler is also available in a stylish Jet Black alternative.
