Triumph’s new Scrambler, the Bonneville 1200, may have been unveiled on the urban streets of London during the ExCel show, but the bike is meant for rougher terrain. The Scrambler comes in either the XC or XE variants, with both sporting Triumph’s 1200cc parallel-twin engine with 89 horsepower and 81ft-lb of torque. The bikes also share the same frame, suspension, and wheels. Both will also have Triumph’s torque assist clutch and cruise control. What makes the two different is the increased rake angle on the XE, along with a few creature comforts like handguards and heated grips.
The Scrambler will also feature new technology. For starters, it will have different riding modes, including an “Off-Road Pro” riding mode for the XE. The dash is full-colour second generation TFT, and it will have a keyless ignition. The XE will also have an IMU controlled cornering ABS and cornering traction control. That’s not all. There will also be an integrated GoPro control, which will allow riders to capture video and take pictures using the bike’s switchgear. The Scrambler will also have Bluetooth phone and music control, and Triumph’s new turn-by-turn navigation.
The bikes will be available in two colour schemes each and there is a list of over 80 accessories that can be used to customise the bikes.
