Triumph Motorcycles has unveiled the all-new Triumph Scrambler 1200, an off-road motorcycle on the lines of the Triumph Street Scrambler, but with a more potent 1200 cc parallel-twin engine, and suspension set-up suited for proper off-road duty. The Scrambler 1200 is offered in two variants - the Triumph Scrambler 1200 XC and the Triumph Scrambler 1200 XE. The model names have been borrowed from the Tiger family instead of the Bonneville range to underline the new Scrambler 1200's off-road capability. Both variants are off-road oriented, but the top-spec XE variant offers more suspension travel and more advanced electronics. Both variants of the Triumph Scrambler 1200 will be displayed to the public at next month's EICMA show in Milan, with a market launch slated for early 2019.

Shoeb Farooq, General Manager Triumph Motorcycles India said- "The all-new Triumph Scrambler 1200 delivers versatility both on and off-roads while demonstrating unique levels of capability, performance, fun to ride accessibility and access to varied personalisation. Our endeavour is to continue making newer and better products - I am certain that given the diversity of trails and varied riding conditions here in India the all-new Scrambler 1200 will be quite a showstopper and a desired motorcycle among the Indian riders."

The Triumph Scrambler 1200's engine churns out 89 bhp and develops 110Nm of torque

The Triumph Scrambler 1200 is powered by the company's tried and tested 'high-torque' 1,200 cc parallel-twin engine that also powers the Thruxton R. However, the motor on the Scrambler 1200 comes with several changes to make it more off-road friendly. For instance, in the Scrambler 1200, the engine churns out 89 bhp @ 7,400 rpm, compared to the Thruxton R, which makes 96 bhp @ 6,750 rpm. Torque, on the other hand, is just marginally less at 110 Nm, but it's achieved much earlier at just 3,950 rpm, compared to the Thruxton R, which develops 112 Nm at 4,950 rpm. This is expected to make the Scrambler 1200 have more grunt with minimal throttle input, suitable for traversing broken trails and for riding off-road.

Another highlight of the new Triumph Scrambler 1200 is the segment-first 21-inch front wheel, along with 17-inch rear wheels, shod in dual-purpose tyres from Metzeler. Braking duties are handled by twin 320 mm discs with Brembo M50 monoblock calipers up front and a single 255 mm disc, gripped by a Brembo 2-piston floating caliper.
