Triumph India has launched the Scrambler 1200 XC in India at Rs 10.73 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). At this price point, it is only Rs 80,000 more expensive than the Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled, its closest rival in terms of off-road capability. Internationally, the bike is available in two variants: XC and XE. However, Triumph will not be launching the hardcore XE model in the country as that would cannibalise the Tiger 800 range.
The motorcycle is available in two colours: black and green. We rode the Scrambler 1200 XC through beautiful trails in Himachal Pradesh, and you can read our first ride review here.
The Triumph Scrambler 1200 XC gets a full-colour programmable multifunction TFT screen which can be operated using a 5-way joystick in the left-hand side switchgear. Triumph will also be offering an optional GoPro connectivity and Bluetooth module in a few months’ time. The lighting setup is all-LED and the bike sports a reasonably large 16-litre fuel tank.
The Scrambler 1200 XC is powered by a 1200cc parallel-twin liquid-cooled motor that’s derived from the Thruxton. However, this motor gets a dedicated ‘Scrambler’ state of tune with more torque available lower down the rev range. The engine develops 90PS at 7400rpm and 110Nm at 3950rpm, working alongside a 6-speed transmission with assist and slipper clutch. There are five rider modes on offer: Road, Rain, Sport, Off-road and a rider-customisable mode. Switchable traction control and dual-channel ABS (can be switched off for the rear in off-road mode) are standard too.
Its suspension setup consists of 45mm Showa fork and twin Ohlins shock absorbers with piggyback reservoirs. Both units are fully adjustable and get 200mm of travel. Braking hardware includes twin 320mm discs with Brembo M50 radial calipers up front and a 255mm disc with Brembo caliper at the rear.
