Scrambler – one of the most popular forms of motorcycles today, shot up the fame ladder like a bullet after Ducati revived one of its classics by the same name couple of years back.

But this time we are bringing you a Triumph Scrambler, and it’s not a regular one. In fact, in a way, it is made in Pune, in India!

A small lesson in history

Now, Triumph has been making Scrambler since 2006 and it has proven to be an extremely capable motorcycle. Originally designed as a Bonneville with high mounted exhaust, slightly longer travel suspension and soft off-roading capabilities, the Scrambler has been a preferred choice for riders who love classic motorcycles but with more versatility.

In essence, it is the same bike as a standard Bonneville but with the little bit of off-roading prowess thrown in. The 865cc parallel twin air-cooled engine is same is the previous generation Bonneville engine which produces around 59 BHP of power at 6,800 RPM and 68 NM of torque at 4,750 RPM, however, the difference is in the firing order. While the Bonneville has a 360-degree firing interval between its two cylinders, the Scrambler has 270 degrees of it to make the engine sound closer to a v-twin. The performance and the numbers remain same.

Made in India Scrambler!

Like we said, the Scrambler we rode isn’t the usual kind. It is a normal Bonneville modified into one and it is done by Triumph Pune. You’ve read that right!

So what makes this one special?

The most visible differences are the high mounted Arrow exhaust which is a part of Triumph’s official accessory. Then the whole front suspension which has been taken from the Tiger XCX model – the WP upside-down forks, spoked wheel and the twin disc brake setup. The rear wheel is also taken from the Tiger itself.

This change inherently gives the Bonneville some decent off-roading capability. There is also a pair of hand guards on each end of the handlebar that is finished in bright orange colour. The headlight is also a much-advanced unit with a pair of projector lamps and LEDs.

Aptly named Scrambler, the motorcycle is finished off with a custom paint job with the matte grey paint and orange stripes running across the fuel tank.

The motorcycle looks fantastic and purposeful and is a pretty good ride as well. This is basically a custom Scrambler and not something that can be bought from a showroom. And if you’re looking for one, well, you won’t really find this particular motorcycle anywhere, but you can definitely try your luck on OLX for a factory Scrambler. Chances are, you’ll get lucky.
