Triumph Street Scrambler (2019 onwards)

The Triumph Street Scrambler is a 900cc standard bike with a cool retro design and dual-sport tires. It might not be a true off-road motorcycle like the Scrambler 1200, but it is more than capable of riding on trails.

The bike comes with a modern water-cooled parallel-twin engine and simple five-speed gear box. There is plenty of power in the low end, but it might feel a little too heavy at higher revs. The motorcycle is pretty basic in terms of equipment and it is also more expensive than its biggest rival, the Ducati Scrambler 800. The front suspension is non-adjustable, which the biggest disappointment.

Nevertheless, the Triumph Street Scrambler is still a fantastic beginner bike with a lot of details and top-notch build quality. So, if you don’t mind its higher price tag and lack of features, just go for it!
