    The Triumph Scrambler 1200 comes with some high-end hardware and the 1,200cc motor from the Thruxton, albeit in a different state of tune.

    Triumph has just launched the Scrambler 1200 XC in India at Rs 10.73 lakh. While the Scrambler 1200 is available in international markets in two variants – a base XC, and an even more off-road focused XE – only the XC has made its way to India.

    The Scrambler 1200 uses a new double cradle chassis and features wire-spoke 21-inch front and 17-inch rear wheels wrapped in tubeless tyres. Suspension duties are taken care of by a 45mm fully adjustable Showa USD fork and a set of fully adjustable Ohlins dual shocks at the back – both offer a very impressive 200mm of suspension travel. Braking hardware consists of dual front discs and a Brembo M50 four-piston caliper and a dual-piston Brembo with a single disc at the rear.

    The Scrambler 1200 borrows its engine from the Thruxton, but in a different state of tune. With 90hp at 7,400rpm and 110Nm at 3,950rpm, the Scrambler makes a little less power and torque than the Thruxton. However, Triumph has said the engine has been tuned for strong low- and mid-range. While the internal gearing on the 6-speed gearbox is the same, the final drive ratio has been tweaked. A slip and assist clutch, switchable traction control and ABS are standard and there’s also a range of riding modes on offer – Rain, Road, Off Road, Sport and Rider. The bike also gets full-LED lighting.

    Other high-end hardware includes Triumph’s 2nd generation TFT display that offers some unique features. The bike manufacturer claims that it is the first to have an integrated GoPro control system. Additionally, it is capable of displaying turn-by-turn navigation if equipped with the optional Bluetooth connectivity module that also enables phone and music operation. Other electronics come in the form of a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), a USB port and heated grips (as an optional accessory).

    Priced at Rs 10.73 lakh, the Triumph Scrambler 1200 has a lot on offer as at its price point and performance level, the Scrambler 1200 has no direct rivals in India. However, it will find competition from Ducati’s iteration of a scrambler, the Scrambler 1100 (Rs 11.42 lakh) that is similar in performance and displacement, although a lot more road-biased.
