Triumph has just revealed its Scrambler line-up for 2024 – adding a new Scrambler 1200 X and updating its top-of-the-line 1200 XE.
We’ve a lot of time for the big retro-styled trailie’s from the British factory; powered by a 1200cc Bonneville engine and kitted out with off-road ready 21-inch front wheels, they’re proper bits of kit which hark back to the glory days of motorcycling.
The big news is the addition of the new Scrambler 1200 X to the range. It’s been built to be a more accessible option, with a seat height of 820mm (which can be dropped further to 795mm with a low seat), 10,000 mile service intervals, and a lower price.

There’s also a much improved Scrambler 1200 XE, which gets the latest-generation Brembo Stylema calipers, new suspension and improved touring capability.
Speaking about the news, Steve Sargent, Chief Product Officer said: “Built for both on-road and off-road adventures, the new Scrambler 1200 XE sets an even higher bar for performance, capability, and modern classic style. The Scrambler 1200 X is a new choice for our customers, optimised to deliver the specification riders have asked for, with a lower seat height, even more competitive pricing, and an even better road ride than the previous Scrambler 1200 XC.”
Scrambler 1200 X
- Marzocchi suspension, 45mm USD forks and RSU with piggyback reservoirs and preload adjustability delivering 170mm travel
- Advanced rider technology (not fitted to the previous Scrambler XC) including new optimised cornering ABS and switchable cornering traction control
- Multifunction instruments with an integrated TFT display
- Five riding modes, including Off-road
Scrambler 1200 XE
- Brembo Stylema radial monoblock calipers with twin floating 320mm discs, and single piston Nissin caliper on the rear
- Marzocchi 45mm USD forks and ‘twin-spring’ RSUs with piggyback reservoirs
- Marzocchi rear suspension with long 250mm wheel travel front and rear (and full adjustability)

Prices come in at £11,895 for the Scrambler X and £13,295 for the XE. We can’t wait to get our hands on them for a road test in the not-too-distant future – and with bikes expected to arrive in dealers from January, we shouldn’t have to wait too long for the privilege.
