Triumph introduces the new Scrambler 1200 XC & XE | News

Triumph has introduced the Scrambler 1200 XC and Scrambler 1200 XE motorcycles boasting 1200cc engines, long travel suspension and a long list of tech features.

Two all-new models comprise the Triumph Scrambler 1200 line-up. The Scrambler 1200 XC, which is built for the road and for real off-road riding fun, and the range-topping Scrambler 1200 XE, with greater off-road capability.

Both new Scramblers are powered by the latest generation Bonneville High Power 1200cc engine. Triumph claims the 270° firing interval ensures a smooth, linear power delivery from the slick six-speed gearbox. Evolved specifically for the Scrambler, the 1200 engine provides 90 PS @ 7,400 rpm, which is 12.5% more power than the Bonneville T120 and an incredible 38% more than the 2019 Street Scrambler. Additionally, the Scrambler 1200 power plant is tuned to deliver ‘high torque’ off-road and on, low down and across the mid-range, with peak torque of 110Nm at a low 3,950 rpm. This is also greater that the Street Scrambler by 37.5%.

Delivering the Scrambler soundtrack is a beautifully crafted twin high level exhaust system with stainless steel headers and brushed stainless steel silencers for a deep punchy scrambler sound. Just like all the new generation Bonnevilles, the Scrambler 1200 engine delivers leading modern classic capability with ride-by-wire, as well as a sensitively incorporated liquid cooling system for enhanced performance and cleaner, more fuel efficient riding. Both Scrambler 1200 models also feature a high first major service interval of 10,000 miles/16,000 km.

– 2nd generation TFT instruments
– 6 riding modes, including Off-Road Pro on the XE
– Optimised cornering ABS and cornering traction control on the XE

– Intuitive switch cubes & 5-way joystick
– Illuminated backlit switches

Both models feature fully-adjustable twin-spring Öhlins rear suspension units that deliver generous wheel travel and suspension capability, boosting off-road capability and ground clearance. The more extreme off-road oriented XE version delivers 250mm wheel travel, and the dual purpose XC delivers 200mm. Both models are equipped with piggy-back reservoirs.

Both Scramblers also feature a new crafted long travel aluminium swingarm, which is longer on the XE version, making the new XC and XE truly capable in all riding conditions. Topping off the high-specification engineering innovation there are premium Brembo M50 radial monobloc calipers, folding foot controls which are adjustable on the XE model, and first-in-class tubeless tyres and spoked 21′ inch front wheel.
