Capitalizing on the success of its “Modern Classics” range, launched last year, Triumph introduced two “custom” models, designed for two very different driving styles. Now in Malaysia, here is the 2017 Triumph Street Scrambler, at 65,900 RM, and the 2017 Triumph Bonneville Bobber, priced at 74,900 RM.

These two retro-styled machines join the recently launched Triumph Street Cup 2017, which hit the showroom in February and sells for at 65,900 RM. The T100 and T100 Dark, which range from 63,900 RM for the Jet Black color scheme at 65,900 RM for two-color schemes.

Based on the Modern Classic T120 series street bikes that entered the Malaysian market last year, the 2017 Triumph Bonneville Bobber carries the same 1200cc mill as the T120. This liquid-cooled, eight-valve SOHC parallel twin-cylinder engine develops 76 hp at 6,100 rpm and 106 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm, powered by a multi-point sequential EFI.

Cut in the classic ‘bobber’ style, the Bonneville Bobber is a one-seater affair, with a seat height of just 690mm and a dry weight of 228kg. Braking uses a single disc front and rear, with respective dimensions 310 mm and 255, gripped by Nissin calipers, with standard ABS equipment.

Ride-by-wire system and traction control are also standard, with on-road and rain driving modes. A torque assist clutch makes it easy to operate the clutch and the LCD multifunction instrument panel contains an analog speedometer and digital displays for all necessary information, controlled by the switch on the left handlebar pod.

The Bobber’s suspension is provided by standard telescopic forks with 90mm of travel, while the rear is supported by a KYB monoshock, with a progressive linkage that gives 76.9mm of swingarm movement. The tire size, for that hardtail bobber look, is a 19 inch spoke wheel up front and a 16 inch wheel in the rear.

On the more action-oriented side, the 2017 Triumph Street Scrambler, a complement to the Triumph Street Cup. Taking inspiration from Steve McQueen’s 1964 TR6 Trophy he staged during the six-day international trials in then East Germany, the Street Scrambler is an update of the ’60s scrambler style.

Using the same liquid-cooled 900cc eight-valve SOHC engine with a 270-degree parallel crank angle as the Street Cup, the Street Scrambler would be said to have 55 hp at 6,000 rpm and 80 Nm of torque at 2,850. Refueling is provided by the multi-point sequential EFI, and an electric throttle is standard.

Weighing 206 kg dry, the Street Scrambler wears its exhaust pipes tight to the right, in the traditional manner. Braking is provided by a 310mm single disc at the front and a 255mm disc at the rear, with Nissin calipers.

ABS is standard equipment on the Scrambler and can be turned on or off for off-road fun, where locking the rear wheel when cornering increases the “whi!” ” factor. Traction control is also standard and, like ABS, can be changed by the rider to suit driving and terrain conditions.

The Street Scrambler’s 790mm seat height puts it in “normal” motorcycle territory, and ground clearance is adequate, with a skid plate to take care of the engine if the bike hits bottom. The suspension is from KYB, with a telescopic fork with 120mm of travel up front and two adjustable preload shocks at the rear with 120mm of travel.

Spoked wheels complete the retro look of the Street Scrambler, with a 19-inch roll bar up front and a 17-inch rear. The fuel is transported in a 12 liter tank.

There are five color options for the 2017 Triumph Bonneville Bobber – Black, Ironstone, Morello Red, Bicolor Silver / Red and Silver / Green. For the 2017 Triumph Street Scrambler, three color palettes are available: Jet Black, Korosi Red / Frozen Silver and Matte Khaki Green.
