Triumph has launched its 2019 Street Twin and Street Scrambler in India. The bikes are priced at Rs. 7.45 lakh and Rs. 8.55 lakh (ex-showroom, India) respectively. Both models will be imported into the country as completely knocked down units (CKD).

The 2019 Street Twin and Street Scrambler share the same tubular steel cradle frame. The Street Twin has a wheelbase of 1,415 mm and the seat height is 760 mm. The bike weighs 198 kg (dry weight) and is fitted with a 12-litre fuel tank. The Street Scrambler has a slightly longer wheelbase (1,445 mm) and the seat is set at a height of 790 mm. It is 5 kg heavier than the Street Twin. 

The Street Twin is a retro-style street bike featuring a circular headlamp, flat seat and twin upswept exhausts. It gets 18-inch alloys in the front and 17-inch alloy wheels in the rear. The Scrambler gets twin side-mounted exhausts and 19-inch wire spoke wheels at the front and 17-inch at the rear. Both bikes ride on 41 mm KYB forks and KYB twin shock absorbers at the front and rear respectively.

Both the Street Twin and Scrambler are powered by the same 900cc, parallel twin-cylinder engine that produces 64.1 BHP @ 7,500 rpm and 80 Nm of torque @ 3,800 rpm. The engine is mated to a 5-speed gearbox via a torque assist clutch. There are two riding modes - Road and Rain. The Scrambler gets an additional Off-road riding mode which turns off ABS and traction control.
