The company dealerships across the country have already started accepting bookings for the same for a token amount of Rs 1 lakh.
The deliveries of the new motorcycles will commence in a few weeks. After launching 16 Triumph Experience Centres across India the brand now will soon be adding a 17th center in Guwahati, by March 2019.
The Street Twin and the Street Scrambler are powered by the same liquid-cooled 900 cc parallel-twin Bonneville engine with high torque power paired to a five-speed manual gearbox. However, the torque numbers remain unchanged at 80 Nm.
