Bajaj Auto and Triumph Motorcycles Tuesday officially unveiled the jointly developed all-new two motorcycles in London, UK. Both the bikes —Triumph Street 400 and the Street Scrambler 400—will be manufactured by Bajaj Auto in its Chakan plant in Maharashtra and launched in the domestic market on 5 July 2023.
The Street 400 is a modern-retro street naked that will compete against the likes of the Royal Enfield Hunter 350, Classic 350, and the Honda CB350RS. Meanwhile, the Triumph Street Scrambler 400, as the name suggests, is a proper scrambler with a larger front wheel and dual-purpose tyres. It will rival the Royal Enfield Scram 411 and the Yezdi Scrambler in India.
Both the bikes are powered by a new 398cc liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine called TR-series engine, Euro 5 compliant. The output stands at 40hp at 8000rpm and 37.5Nm at 6500rpm, which puts Triumph's quite close to KTM's 390 lineup in terms of power and torque. Both the bikes get a 6-speed gearbox.
The frame of the two bikes is hybrid spine/perimeter frame built from tubular steel. Though the engine is identical across the two bikes, there are considerable differences in the chassis. While the Street 400 will feature 17-inch alloy wheels and road-going tyres, the Street Scrambler 400 will use a 19-inch front wheel, a long-travel suspension setup, and perhaps even a different sub-frame. Brakes are slightly different, with the Scrambler sporting a slightly larger 320mm front disc compared to the Speed's 300mm unit.
Both bikes will get a digital instrument cluster, full-LED lighting, and dual-channel ABS.
Looking at the features and hardware of the two premium bikes, we expect the Triumph Street 400 to be priced around Rs. 2.60 lakh (ex-showroom), while the Street Scrambler 400 could be priced slightly higher at Rs. 2.80 lakh (ex-showroom).
