NEW BIKES: Triumph reveals Scrambler 1200 XE and X


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.”

  • 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)
  • Revised intake and exhaust headers to help deliver a broader spread of torque through the upper revs

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.
