The New Scrambler 1200 XC & XE
Introducing the Scrambler 1200 XC and Scrambler 1200 XE line up, all-new benchmark-setting motorcycles that represent a first for dual-purpose capability and modern custom style. These beautiful new 1200 scramblers deliver a category redefining level of performance, specification and finish, fused with Triumph’s iconic Scrambler DNA and all the capability of a genuine adventure motorcycle.
Built to deliver a sublime riding experience on every road, and packed with class-leading specification and state-of-the-art technology, these new modern classics take the
legend that Triumph started to a whole new level. The first of a new generation, and the best in every dimension. The real deal is here and we’re taking deposits now.
THE ORIGINAL SCRAMBLERS & GENESIS FOR TODAY’S SCRAMBLER SCENE
Born from an unparalleled blood line, the new Scrambler 1200 line-up can trace its roots directly back to the original Scrambler scene in the early 1960’s, where Triumph played a pivotal role and set the template for what made a scrambler great.
Building the leading bikes of the day, stripped back with straight-through ‘twin pipes’ fitted high or low slung and chopped off – Triumphs were the original and real desert sleds. These inspired the world’s first production scramblers, with the Bonneville T-120TT, T120C and the TR6’C’. And these were the bikes that Steve McQueen took to the desert, that Bud Ekins raced and won on in the dirt, and that competed in the most challenging desert race of all time – the Baja 1000.
In 2006, with the launch of the very first ‘modern era’ Scrambler, Triumph again delivered the genesis of a new category. This triggered the world of Scramblers we see today and a whole new global fan base, from urban riders to movie stars, all in love with that iconic Triumph scrambler style and timeless silhouette.
TWO BENCHMARK SETTING NEW SCRAMBLER 1200s
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, which takes the specification to the highest level and its off-road capability and scrambling credentials to the very top of the motorcycling world.
Both new Scramblers deliver category leading torque and a dedicated ‘scrambler tune’ courtesy of the latest generation Bonneville High Power 1200cc engine. The charismatic 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.
CATEGORY DOMINATING CAPABILITY
Taking the capability to the highest level, the Scrambler 1200s feature a class-leading standard of rider focused technology, including:
On top of these 5 modes, the Scrambler 1200 XE also features the ‘Off-Road Pro’ mode,which delivers our most off-road focused set up for advanced adventure riding and scrambling. The ‘Off-Road Pro’ mode turns ABS and traction control off, and uses the ‘Off-Road’ throttle map.
Exclusive to the Scrambler XE is the Optimised Cornering ABS, fitted as standard.
This maintains the optimum braking performance, whatever the lean angle.
The Scrambler 1200 XC features switchable ABS and its three ABS modes are selected manually via the Rider-configurable riding mode.
The Scrambler 1200 XE also features Optimised Cornering Traction Control as standard, which automatically adapts the level of traction control depending on the riding conditions. This maintains the optimum level of traction control for the lean angle of the bike.
The Scrambler XC features instead switchable traction control with five ride modes, which are selected manually via the Rider-configurable riding mode.
An advanced Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), developed in partnership with Continental, supports the optimum function of the Optimised Cornering ABS and Traction Control on the Scrambler 1200 XE. This takes constant measurements of roll, pitch, yaw, lean angle and acceleration rates, responding with appropriate active safety features.
Both Scrambler 1200 models come with all LED lighting, including 5 inch headlight, tail light with new more attractive diffused opacity detailing, and indicators (in applicable markets).
The headlight also incorporates LED Daytime Running Lights (*in applicable markets) which provides excellent visibility and a distinctive light profile.
A world’s first for any motorcycle – Triumph introduces an integrated GoPro control system, facilitating GoPro camera operation, which is facilitated by an accessory fitted connectivity Bluetooth module.
The connection and control is displayed on the TFT instruments, enabling
intuitive video and photo operation via the switchgear.
For iOS and Android phones, riders can download for free the all new Triumph app, which delivers the connected navigation function. The navigation, route planner, final destination and points of interest (hotels, fuel, restaurants etc.) are all controlled by the rider through this app.
The new Scrambler 1200s both feature full Bluetooth phone integration, with clear display on the colour TFT instruments, and intuitive phone operation via the switchgear, allowing the rider to select music, control the volume and take calls.
This is facilitated through an accessory fitted connectivity Bluetooth module.
