The new Triumph Street Scrambler 900 Sandstorm is powered by the 900-cc, high-torque Bonneville twin-cylinder engine, now updated to be Euro 5-compliant. The liquid-cooled powerplant continues to produce 65 hp and a strong 80 Nm of peak torque at just 3,250 rpm promising good low-end power.

The modern Street Scrambler was introduced in 2017, it pays tribute to the original which came into being in the early 1960s. The original Bonneville was credited with being a race winner straight out of the crate, and the bike of choice for dirt and desert racers to strip and modify, giving rise to the first dedicated scrambler factory specials including the Bonneville T-120TT. Stripped back, lighter and more powerful, this was the bike that ignited the Scrambler scene back then.
Reintroduced to the Triumph line up in 2006, the Scrambler very quickly became the genesis of a whole new sub-category. In 2017, the Street Scrambler added a unique contemporary style, conquering the hearts of many riders and critics thanks to its fun and accessible urban scrambler character.
