Triumph Unveils New Scrambler 1200 XC, XE

Enjoying the full capabilities of an adventure motorcycle, these new 1200cc Scramblers offer category- redefining levels of performance, fit and finish.

Triumph introduced the dynamic Scrambler 1200 XC and Scrambler 1200 XE, all-new, benchmark-setting motorcycles fusing all-purpose capability with Triumph’s iconic Scrambler DNA.

Enjoying the full capabilities of an adventure motorcycle, these new 1200cc Scramblers offer category- redefining levels of performance, fit and finish.

Triumph engineered the Scrambler 1200 to deliver a sublime riding experience, regardless of conditions or road surface. The Scrambler 1200 also features class-leading, state of the art technology, lifting these new modern classics to a whole new level.

Two all-new models comprise the Triumph Scrambler 1200 lineup: the Scrambler 1200 XC, designed and built to assuredly tackle any road; and the range-topping Scrambler 1200 XE, which raises its off-road capability and scrambling credentials to the very top of the motorcycling world.

At the heart of each new Scrambler is the latest generation, high power 1,200 cc Bonneville engine featuring a dedicated “Scrambler tune” helping deliver readily-accessible, category-leading torque. The charismatic 270° firing interval ensures a smooth, linear power delivery conducted by a slick six-speed gearbox. Evolved specifically for the Scrambler, the 1200 engine provides 89 Hp @ 7,400 rpm, 12.5 percent more power than the Bonneville T120 and an incredible 38 percent more than the 2019 Street Scrambler.

Additionally, the Scrambler 1200 power plant is tuned to deliver high torque on- and off-road low down and across the mid-range, with peak torque of 81 ft.-lbs. available at a low 3,950 rpm. The Scrambler 1200’s engine leap-frogs the Street Scrambler’s peak torque figure by a substantial 37.5 percent.

A beautifully crafted, high-mounted twin exhaust system with stainless steel headers and brushed stainless steel silencers unleashes a deep, punchy, Scrambler sound. Mirroring the newest-generation Bonnevilles, the Scrambler 1200 engine delivers class-leading capability with ride-by-wire technology and a liquid cooling system for enhanced performance and cleaner, more fuel-efficient riding. Both Scrambler 1200 models feature a high first major service interval of 10,000 mi/16,000 km.

The Scrambler 1200s feature a class-leading standard of rider focused technology, including:

  • Second generation TFT instruments
  • Up to six riding modes
  • IMU – Inertial Measurement Unit (XE only)
  • Optimized Cornering ABS (XE only; IMU supported)
  • Optimized Cornering Traction Control (XE only; IMU supported)
  • All-LED lighting
  • Backlit switchgear
  • Torque-assist clutch
  • Keyless ignition
  • Heated grips
  • Cruise control
  • USB charging
  • World’s first integrated GoPro control system
  • Fully-integrated phone and music operation
  • Triumph app
  • Integrated turn-by-turn navigation system powered by Google

Triumph created a new, dedicated Scrambler chassis tailor-made for focused off- road capability and featuring comfortable rider ergonomics.

Both models feature new, unique, fully-adjustable twin-spring Öhlins rear suspension units that deliver category-leading wheel travel and suspension performance for amazing off-road capability and ground clearance.

The more extreme, off-road oriented XE version delivers 9.8 inches of wheel travel, and the dual purpose XC delivers 7.9 inches. Both models are equipped with piggy-back reservoirs.

Both Scramblers also feature a new, long-travel aluminum swingarm, which is longer on the XE version, making the new XC and XE truly capable in all riding conditions. There are also premium Brembo M50 radial monobloc calipers, adjustable and folding foot controls on the XE model, first-in-class tubeless tires mounted on spoked rims, and 21-inch front wheel.

The new Scrambler 1200s have category-defining, modern-custom style with unparalleled finish and detailing, setting a new standard for 21st century scramblers. Incorporating the iconic silhouette and original Scrambler design, the new XC and XE feature a host of signature details, including:

  •  New seamless fuel tank with classic Scrambler cut-away features
  •  Beautifully engineered side-laced wheels
  •  Brushed aluminum Monza-style fuel cap
  •  Brushed stainless tank strap
  •  Classic bench seat

Reflecting its top-of-the-range status, the Scrambler 1200 XE comes with even more premium accoutrements including the honor of being the first bike to carry the iconic Triumph triangle badge on the tank, plus:

  • Hand guards with aluminum brace
  • Brembo MCS lever
  • Silver handlebar finish with black anodized risers and clamp
  • Gold-colored forks

The new Scrambler 1200 XC and XE have been designed with personalization at heart, with more than 80 accessories available to deliver a more rugged off-road focus, more style, and more everyday usability.

Accessories include:

  •  High-level front mudguard
  •  Stainless steel engine bars
  •  Headlight grille
  •  Bluetooth connectivity module
  •  Arrow carbon fiber silencer
  •  Indicator relocation kit
  •  Handlebar brace
  •  Number board
  •  Newly developed rugged panniers
  •  Rugged tank bag
  •  30 liter roll bag

To showcase the dual-character of the bikes, Triumph has created a set of exciting inspiration kits to use as a starting point for riders to design their own Scrambler 1200 custom, or to fit as a complete set – the fully loaded Escape and the off-road, stripped back Extreme.

Adding to the popular Bonneville clothing collection, Triumph has developed a dedicated range of Scrambler 1200 clothing featuring short sleeve t-shirts, checkerboard goggles, and a selection of riding and casual wear for men and women.
