In hindsight, the news story of updates to the Scrambler 1200 should have begged the question: what about the Street Scrambler 900? Well now the 2021 updates to little bro’ have been made public, along with images of the saucy dual purpose limited edition machine, Sandstorm.

This is the last in this year’s round of Bonneville family updates. Naturally, the 900cc parallel twin now meets Euro 5 emissions status and retains the power (48kW) and torque (80Nm at 3250rpm) of the old donk, thanks to better breathing and cleaner running operation.

Triumph has built almost 14,000 Street Scramblers since its launch in 2017, most kitted out with modifications before delivery. The new machine is 3kg heavier than before, and fuel use is ever so slightly higher but it now has three ride modes. The high signature pipes with the noisy bark remain.

For 2021 there are new parts like an adventure seat, revised throttle body, heel guards, and different headlight brackets. Colours include grey, khaki, black and ironstone, and price has risen slightly because of the engine mods.

Like with the Scrambler 1200, there’s also a limited edition model, dubbed Sandstorm. Just 775 of these will be minted. The Sandstorm edition resembles the 1960s scrambler factory special, and it gets a special paint scheme, a higher front mudguard, sump guard, tail tidy, headlight grille, and knee pads fitted on the tank.

Local pricing will be announced closer to launch towards the end of the year.
