    The all-new 2024 Triumph Scrambler 1200 line-up has been revealed globally and for this year, the base XC variant has been replaced by a new X variant. The range-topping XE has also been updated quite comprehensively.

    1. Both bikes get tubeless, spoked 21/18-inch rims
    2. X variant more road-biased, has shorter seat height
    3. XE variant gets fully adjustable suspension, Off-road Pro mode

    Triumph Scrambler 1200 lineup: similarities between the two

    Both the X and XE share the same liquid-cooled, 90hp, 110Nm, 1,200cc, parallel-twin engine, and is mated to a 6-speed gearbox with a torque assist clutch. The eagle-eyed amongst you will have noticed that these are the same peak output figures as before. To read our review of the Triumph Scrambler 1200 XC, tap here. Visually, there’s little to separate these two bikes from the previous models save for new paint and a new, slimmer LED tail-light. Fuel capacity has gone down marginally from 16 litres on the earlier bikes to 15 litres. Both bikes run on tubeless, spoked rims sized 90/90-21 at the front and 150/70-R17 at the rear, although the compound they are shod with is different.

    Triumph Scrambler 1200 X: makes it more accessible

    Where the earlier Scrambler 1200 XC was still quite a tall machine, with a seat height of 840mm, the new X now drops that number down to 820mm. That has been achieved in part by new Marzocchi suspension units which now have 170mm of travel at both ends, as opposed to the earlier XC’s 200mm figure. If you so wish, Triumph will also sell you a low seat as an accessory, which further drops the seat height to a very manageable 795mm. One major hardware change is the presence of axially mounted Nissin calipers, which clamp down upon twin 310mm discs at the front. This is a stark departure from the superbike-spec M50s that the erstwhile XC's shipped with.

    The same five riding modes (Rain, Road, Sport, Off-road and Rider configurable) are on offer here, but the X now gets IMU-enabled traction control and cornering ABS. The Scrambler 1200 X has a round dash that’s very similar to the Triumph 660cc models, and with the optional Bluetooth module, features such as turn-by-turn navigation and notification alerts are enabled. The road-biased X variant runs on Metzeler Karoo Street tyres.

    Triumph Scrambler 1200 XE: range-topper refreshed

    The 1200 XE isn’t very different to the outgoing model but has been peppered with a few changes. The suspension is now courtesy of Marzocchi and is fully adjustable, but it still has the same 250mm wheel travel as before. Seat height is still set at a towering 870mm although with the optional low seat, it can be reduced to 845mm. The XE also gets the Brembo Stylema calipers, which are the same as you get on a Ducati Panigale V4 S

    The XE variant also benefits from the presence of the Off-road Pro mode, which allows you to turn off all the riding aids if you so wish, which is in addition to the exisiting five riding modes. And considering this is the more off-road biased variant, the XE also runs on more focused Metzeler Tourance dual-purpose rubber. All the technology on the XE is controlled via the same TFT dash as found on the earlier Scrambler 1200 line-up and the burly Rocket 3 muscle cruiser.

    In typical Triumph fashion, there are over 70 official accessories available ranging from aesthetic to functional.
