It is a direct evolution of Scrambler “Bisbetica”, one of the two bikes made for “” to be at “Raise the dust & Soulshine” and unveiled at Tridays 2013 last June.

In common with “Bisbetica” the SM keeps some special parts previously developed, such as the front light, the engine protection, the skid plate kit, the heat protection on Arrow exhaust and the special off road foot rest.

Triumph Scrambler SM has a totally different suspension work, to adapt the bike for a road use, indeed, at the front there is a new handlebar with new risers for a better control, while the extended fork now is 15 mm lower than the Bisbetica, to be more reactive, while the wheelbase is longer, using the America swing arm at the back.

The traditional Scrambler twin engine can count also on a new water proof high flow air cleaner kit made by “”.

Scrambler SM adopts 17 inches Kineo wheels with 120 (front) and 180 (rear) road tyre.

To keep wheel perfectly aligned Free Spirits Triumph Scrambler SM has also a new offset belt drive conversion transmission, upgraded with a dynamic belt tensioner which avoid power loss.

New brakes rotor by “” has been adapted to the new wheels and foreseen 340mm 4-piston Brembo caliper at the front and 300mm 4-piston caliper at the rear.
