Iconic British Premium motorcycling major Triumph Motorcycles India today launched its all new Scrambler 1200 XC in India . The new Scrambler 1200 is 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. Packed with a High Power 1200cc Bonneville twin engine, with a dedicated Scrambler tune, the Scrambler 1200 delivers 90 PS @ 7,400 rpm with an incredible torque output of 110 Nm @ 3,950rpm. The overall performance is amplified with a high level exhaust and a signature twin Scrambler soundtrack.


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 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.


The Scrambler delivers 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%.

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. The Scrambler 1200 XC also features a high first major service interval of 10,000 miles/16,000 km

The new Scrambler 1200 XC, is a benchmark-setting motorcycle that represents a first for dual-purpose capability and modern custom style. It delivers 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.


With a unique Öhlins collaboration, plus a dedicated new Scrambler chassis tailored for focused off-road capability and comfortable rider ergonomics, the new Scrambler 1200 has been developed to deliver a first-in-class dual purpose ‘classic and adventure’ capability.

This machine features a totally unique new fully-adjustable twin-spring Öhlins rear suspension units that deliver category leading wheel travel and suspension capability, for amazing off-road capability and ground clearance. The dual purpose XC delivers 200mm of travel and is equipped with piggy-back reservoirs.

‘’The twin spring Öhlins RSU on the new Triumph Scrambler 1200 combines new technology with inspiration from 70's motocross to deliver high performance and long suspension travel capability.

Built to deliver a sublime riding experience on every road and packed with class-leading specification and state-of-the-art technology, the new modern classic takes 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.

Mr. Shoeb Farooq, General Manager, Triumph Motorcycles India Pvt Ltd. commented “Modern classic continue to be Triumph’s largest selling motorcycles in India with a contribution of around 55% in the total volume. The all new Scrambler 1200 fills in the gap of a more capable, more stylish and the first in its class scrambler which further strengthens and completes the modern classic portfolio of Triumph in India. The new Scrambler 1200 XC is a benchmark setting motorcycle that represents a first for dual-purpose capability and modern custom style. This is a genuine ‘Cross-over’ adventure capable modern classic. Modern classics segment are a stronghold of Triumph in India with clear leadership and we expect this product to further strengthen that position.”
