Triumph Motorcycles has unveiled the Scrambler 1200 XC and Scrambler 1200 XE line up, a range of all-new, benchmark-setting motorcycles that represent a first for dual-purpose capability and modern custom style. These beautiful new 1200 scramblers deliver 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.
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. The first of a new generation, and the best in every dimension. The real deal is here.
THE ORIGINAL SCRAMBLERS & GENESIS FOR TODAY’S SCRAMBLER SCENE
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 BENCHMARK SETTING NEW SCRAMBLER 1200s
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.
CLASS LEADING SPECIFICATION & EQUIPMENT
With a unique Öhlins collaboration, plus a dedicated new Scrambler chassis tailored for focused off-road capability and comfortable rider ergonomics, the new Scrambler 1200s have been developed to deliver a first-in-class dual purpose ‘classic and adventure’ capability.
Both models feature 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 more extreme off-road oriented XE version delivers 250mm wheel travel, and the dual purpose XC delivers 200mm. Both models are equipped with piggy-back reservoirs.

Incorporating all of the original Scrambler design DNA and iconic silhouette the new XC and XE feature a host of signature scrambler details.
