It is obviously how the bike contributed to the wonderful pages of history written by Triumph as it was built, it looked, and felt like it could go on and on forever. It actually did and so it managed to attract adventurous riders which completed the true awesome idea of having a Trophy. You would actually feel like Steve McQueen and this was a very important ambition for teenagers of the time.

In 2006, after Triumph’s complete and successful revamp, the Scrambler entered the scene as a motorcycle featuring an air-cooled, DOHC, parallel-twin Engine: with 270 degree firing interval. It brought back the exhaust arrangement that was a big hit back in the ‘60s and it was available Two-tone White/Caspian Blue or White/Tornado Red painted. Since then, little has changed related to the Triumph Scrambler.

By simply taking a look at it or even studying its 865cc parallel twin you’ll immediately notice that this bike looks from a whole different era. Triumph designed it as a revival of the very successful Trophy and I reckon it did a damn good job. The thing is that you can’t find a single bike that would complete even half of the Scrambler’s wonderful characteristics, not to mention a strong competitor.

You will immediately head towards Harleys, but soon remember that none of these bikes are made to get the dust flowing. Italians are a bit stylish and prefer futuristic designs, leaving the classic looks for their cruisers. Finally, the Japanese which indeed proved able to take Triumph a good piece of the cake back in the early days, aren’t nostalgic at all.
Its looks set it apart from the crowd and also sell the bike, so I am facing a very important task my friends. I mean, who would ever criticize an old school Triumph, no matter model or even Year: of fabrication? Nobody!

The bike is simply beautiful! With the help of its rounded headlight, instruments, and mirrors it announces that you’re not facing an everyday ride (although it is perfect for the task) and further, the retro fuel tank with the chromed tank badges, rubber knee pads, and hand painted coach lines is a true reminder of how bikes looked when Triumph caught the first big wave.

I consider the chromed exhaust a true work of art, both in the way it is designed to stay as close to the Frame: as possible, and the way it is attached to it. This is Triumph’s most visible way in which it announces that we’re dealing with a bike able to become an off-roader. The tires would be the second most visible clue.

I love the flat seat and the fact that the rear fender is practically hidden underneath it, barely managing to catch a breath of air and bright the décor with the taillight and rear signal lights.

Designers at Triumph didn’t work their butts for nothing. They ended up with an extremely good looking piece of machinery and they only choose two-tone colors such as Tornado Red and Fusion White, Roulette Green and Aluminum Silver, Tangerine and Aluminum Silver.
