Triumph’s Street Scrambler has been a rip roaring sale success, because it’s damn good. But there are those with demands for more capability off-road. Enter stage left Pierre from French custom workshop Motorieep with this modified version.
A WP USD fork mounted in a machined triple clamp beefs-up the front and bespoke-for-this-project and fully adjustable (both fast and slow compression and rebound) Öhlins shocks increase ride height from 790mm to 860mm.
The clocks have been lowered and the ignition is relocated to the side panel, beneath the new seat. Mudguards and brackets are brushed stainless steel, the rear mounted to a cut-and-looped subframe and the mud plugging tyres are of course Continental TKC80s. The single brake disc remains but added bite courtesy of a Brembo 4-pot caliper.
Pierre will be building just five of these specials using brand new 2018 Triumphs, get in touch with him if you’re interested. Just the tool for the Bike Shed Sunday Scramble in a few weeks time.
