2022 Triumph Street Scrambler Sandstorm review
2022 Triumph Street Scrambler Sandstorm Edition

From the 900cc Street Twin and Street Twin Gold Line to the 1,200cc T120, T120 Black, Streetmaster, Bobber and Scrambler 1200 (including the ultra-cool Steve McQueen Edition), Triumph has updated nearly every model in its Bonneville lineup for the 2022 model year.

Last but certainly not least is Triumph’s 900cc Street Scrambler (MSRP starts at $11,000; available in July) and new limited-edition Street Scrambler Sandstorm (MSRP $11,750; available in May).

As with other Bonneville models, the Street Scrambler’s liquid-cooled parallel-twin has been updated to meet Euro 5 emissions yet it still delivers 64 horsepower at 7,250 rpm and 59 lb-ft of torque at 3,250 rpm (claimed). Three riding modes (Road, Rain, and Off-Road), a torque-assist clutch, switchable ABS and switchable traction control are standard equipment.

2022 Triumph Street Scrambler Photo Gallery:


  1. Triumph can’t seem to get the proportions right. The gas tank looks to big, the seat looks to long and the front and rear fenders look … wrong.

  2. Agree with Robert. Triumph needs to look at the 66-70 bikes and do a retro, i.e. lightweight bike. I had the “Jack Pine” TR100C (1966), ’70 TR-6C, and a 900 series Scram. Currently on a R9T Scram and keep looking to TR for Rickman style bike…..

  3. There is fuel pump, sender, regulator, and filter inside the tank. That is when they increased in size to accomodate and not lose fuel capacity.

    I think it looks smart! It also doesn’t leak oil.


  4. Oh, and they did a great job dressing up a catalytic exhaust.

    This bike has more tech and reliability in it than your American cars.
