New Triumph – Bajaj Roadster Spotted

Last week Motobob spotted the latest mule of the Triumph-Bajaj’s first entry-level motorcycles: Scrambler & naked street versions. According to MotoBob’s spy photos, the new bike will sport a Triumph-inspired fuel tank and a circular LED headlight. A slim tail section with grip rails on both sides, a single upswept exhaust, and bar-end mirrors complete the bike. The motorcycles feature a rectangular instrument console, which leads us to assume they will have a complete LCD display.

The tubular steel frame underpins the new Bajaj-Triumph motorcycles. The motorcycle is outfitted with USD front forks, mono shocks in the rear, and bolt-on rear subframes. The Scrambler has more travel and will most likely have 19-inch front and 17-inch rear tyres. The bikes have a 4-piston radially mounted calliper with a single front disc for braking.

The new naked street bike has a single seat, whereas the scrambler version has a split seat setup. On the scrambler bike, handguards, a handlebar brace, a luggage rack, and a windscreen are also visible. These are expected to be offered as optional extras.

Both of the motorcycles spotted have a black-themed engine. There is a large radiator visible up front, indicating that they are liquid-cooled. The size of this engine is unknown, but it is expected to be 350-400cc with a four-valve DOC layout. The exhaust systems on the street bike and the Scrambler appear to be different. The scrambler is equipped with a twin stack exhaust.

According to some reports, this bike will make its first official public appearance in early 2023.
