The History and Evolution of the Triumph Scrambler

The first Triumph Scrambler rolled off the lines in 2006. The British Motorcycle manufacturer had brought John Mochett on board just 7 years prior and this would be the last model he would design for the brand. He served as their principal stylist for the majority of Triumph’s motorcycles until this time. The name suited the bike with its off-road capability and styling.

The new model was influenced by the TR6C Trophy special with crossover exhaust headers and the high level stacked twin exhausts. The handlebars were high and wide with a lifted seat position, Kayaba front forks, and the small headlight. The scrambler is a fun bike that takes to most types of terrain with the power of an 865cc parallel twin engine paired with a 5-speed gearbox,

2011-2013 Triumph Tony Hawk Special Scrambler

The 2013 Tony Hawk Special was a special collaborative edition between Triumph, Tony Hawk and several other companies. They accomplished this special edition by starting with the base of a Scrambler and loading on the special features that not only made it quite aesthetically pleasing but it also upped the performance.

The British Built machine offered a few striking features such as the high mounted stainless steel headers and the twin chromed silencers combining to create the exhaust system. The flat dual seat was firm yet comfortable and the two-tone paint with the Triumph badges on the fuel tanks gave it a special look that was best described as eye candy. It still maintained its original resolve to be just as much fun on the road as off.

The 2015 Scrambler continued on with the legacy with the same engine and power with no need to alter the perfect chemistry that was going on.

The adjustable suspension was a nice feature for handling diverse riding conditions.
