- The XC variant is a relatively lower-spec model compared to the XE variant which is sold abroad.

- The claimed efficiency figure stands at 20.4kmpl.
Triumph is all set to launch the Scrambler 1200 XC in the country on May 28. The XC variant is essentially the more affordable choice compared to the hardcore XE variant which Triumph sells abroad. That said, the Scrambler 1200 XC is still one of the most capable bikes out there for off-roading, with enough equipment to eclipse even some of the full-blown adventure bikes!
Notable off-road-ready features include a large 21-inch front and 17-inch rear spoke wheel with tubeless Metzeler Tourance tyre setup; long-travel inverted forks (from Showa) and Ohlins twin shock absorbers - both fully adjustable with 200mm travel front and rear. It also gets a touring-worthy 16-litre fuel tank.
Powering the Scrambler is a 1200cc parallel twin liquid-cooled engine which churns out 90PS at 7400rpm and 110Nm at 3950rpm (UK-spec numbers). It works in conjunction with a 6-speed slip-assist transmission. Triumph has loaded it with all sorts of advanced electronics like five riding modes, multi-level switchable traction control and dual-channel ABS as standard. Triumph claims a fuel efficiency figure of 20.4kmpl and this should give the bike a theoretical range of at least 300km.
Triumph will be announcing the Scrambler 1200 XC’s price on May 28. We will also be sharing our first ride report on that day, so stay tuned to BikeDekho.
