It starts at Rs 8.35 lakh for the renamed Triumph Street Twin, while it costs Rs 9.45 lakh for the renamed Triumph Street Scrambler. A rebadged Street Twin and Street Scrambler 900 have been officially launched in India as Triumph Speed Twin 900 and Scrambler 900 models, respectively. The starting price remains the same for both models, and no mechanical changes have been made as a result of the rebadging from the Hinckley-based marque.
- Powered by the same 900cc parallel twin engine delivering 64hp and 80Nm
- There are new paint options available for each model
- The starting prices for both models remain the same
There are new paint schemes for the Triumph Speed Twin 900 and Scrambler 900
In order to make them more in line with their bigger siblings, the Speed Twin 1200 and Scrambler 1200, Triumph has rebadged the smaller 900cc modern classics from their evergreen Bonneville line-up for the 2023 model year. As a result of this rebadging move, two new paint schemes will be available and new badging will be applied to each model’s side panels.
There are three colour options available for the Speed Twin 900 – Jet Black (Rs 8.35 lakh), Matt Ironstone (Rs 8.48 lakh) and Matt Silver Ice (Rs 8.48 lakh). The Matt Silver Ice paint option is new for this year, trickling down from the Speed Twin 1200.
A trio of paint options are also available for the Scrambler 900 – Jet Black (Rs 9.45 lakh), Matt Khaki (Rs 9.58 lakh) and Carnival Red/Jet Black (Rs 9.75 lakh). Carnival Red/Jet Black paint is new for this year, and it costs Rs 30,000 more than Jet Black.
Both Triumph Speed Twin 900s and Scrambler 900s share the same underpinnings
Even though the bikes have new badges, their underpinnings remain the same as the previous models. With a 270-degree firing order, the 900cc, parallel-twin, liquid-cooled engine produces 64hp and 80Nm of torque. Despite similar peak output figures, the Scrambler 900’s engine delivers it slightly earlier in the rev range to better suit its off-road capabilities. Each motorcycle is equipped with a 5-speed gearbox and slipper clutch. There are also identical braking components, including a single 310mm disc at the front paired with an axially-mounted four-piston Brembo calliper, and a two-piston Nissin calliper at the rear. Also, the fuel tanks on both bikes are the same size, holding 12 liters each.
Quite a few differences exist between these two in terms of wheel size and construction. Featuring a 100/90-18 front wheel and a 150/70-R17 rear wheel, the Speed Twin 900 features a cast-alloy wheel set-up. True to its name, the Scrambler 900 has spoked rims with a 100/90-19 front wheel and a 150/70-R17 rear wheel. Featuring a weight of 216kg and a seat height of 765mm, the Speed Twin 900 is very accessible, while the Scrambler 900 weighs 223kg and has a slightly higher, yet still manageable, seat height of 790mm.
