Launched in 2006, the Triumph Scrambler 900 was the last bike designed by John Mockett, responsible for most of Triumph’s bikes starting all the way back in 1989. Mockett liked modular design plans, which is why the Scrambler is basically a Bonneville with a few off-road tweaks.
Inspired by the TR6C Trophy Special back in Triumph’s heyday, the new Scrambler got the twin ‘scrambler’ pipes, crossed exhaust headers, higher bars, twin shocks, and Bridgestone knobbies. The 865cc twin engine was the same as the Bonneville, but with a crankshaft from the Speedmaster. Slightly detuned to increased torque at low revs, the engine produced 54 horsepower and 51 pound-feet of torque. In 2009, US models got fuel injection, but the throttle bodies were built to look like carbs to keep the retro styling intact.
This specific Triumph Scrambler 900 is in my favorite color option for this bike – Matte Green. It comes with plenty of extras, including the TOR (Triumph Off-Road) exhaust, Renthal Streetfighter bar, Progressive suspension front and rear, and the nifty ammo can as a small saddlebag.
