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 1950’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 sling 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’SC’. 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 the most challenging desert races 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 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.
BREATH-TAKING SCRAMBLER STYLE These bikes have absolutely Scrambler-defining modern custom style with category leading finish and detailing, setting a new template for what a 21st century Scrambler should look like. Incorporating all of the original Scrambler design DNA and iconic silhouette the new XC and XE feature a host of signature scrambler details.
In addition an ultra-rare Scrambler 1200 Bond Edition has also been launched inspired by the magnificent Scrambler 1200 custom stunt bike featured in the new 2020 James Bond Film, and is limited to 250 models worldwide with only 30 in the United States
Based on the top spec Scrambler XE’s category-dominating performance and capability, the Bond Edition also benefits from class-leading state-of-the-art technology, specification and equipment, together with the addition of beautiful and unique higher-value details and finishes.
