Triumph has announced two new Scrambler motorcycles the 1200Scrambler XC and Scrambler XE. Both the motorcycles are focused towards being equally good on and off the road. The Scrambler 1200 is powered by a 1200cc, liquid cooled, parallel twin engine that develops maximum power of 90PS at 7400rpm and a peak torque of 110Nm at 3950rpm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox.
Braking duties are handled by twin 320mm Brembo disc brakes at the front and a single 255mm disc unit at the rear. The motorcycles get Showa 45mm full adjustable USD forks with 200mm wheel travel at the front and Öhlins fully adjustable piggy-back RSUs with 200mm travel at the rear. The scramblers are shod with 90/90 21 tyre at the front and 150/70 17 tyre at the rear.
The Triumph Scrambler 1200 gets 6 riding modes that include road, rain, off-road, sport and custom mode that can be configured by the rider as per his own choice and comfort. The Scrambler XE also gets an off-road pro mode that turns ABS and traction control off and uses the off-road throttle map. Both the motorcycles get switchable ABS with three different modes and the rider can set it as per the requirement. The XE is also offered with cornering ABS supported by an IMU only as standard fitment.
In an attempt to reduce the lever effect of the clutch, Triumph have provided the Scramblers with torque assist clutch. Both the bikes gets Triumph’s keyless ignition as standard. The system recognises the proximity of the keyless fob and then enables ignition via the switch cube mounted start button while riders can also disable the function. Like all other products, Triumph has also offered the Scrambler motorcycles with heated grips, cruise control, USB charging and Triumph application.
Triumph claims that it’s for the first time in the world, that a GoPro control system has been introduced on any motorcycle which is connected by Bluetooth and the connection control is also displayed on the insstrument cluster. The manufacturer has also partnered with Google to introduce a turn-by-turn navigation system. Once the rider sets the desired location, the map is automatically generated on the screen and the way is shown with the help of simple turn notifications while also displaying the nearest restaurants and fuel stations.
Triumph has offered the motorcycles with 80 plus Scrambler only accessories that can be retro fitted after the purchase of the motorcycle. There is no firm new about the launch of the motorcycle yet. Stay tuned for more info about the Scramblers.
