In a few months, Triumph is going to show us its new big boy Scrambler model, another motorcycle that will join Triumph’s heritage motorcycle lineup.
We know quite a bit about this new model, firstly that it will be called the Triumph Scrambler 1200. As you might expect, the Triumph Scrambler 1200 is set to take on the Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled in this segment, a bike which should be getting an 1,100cc variant later this year as well.
Said to be a capable full-sized dual-sport, we expect the Scrambler 1200 to be fitted with the high-torque version of Triumph’s 1,200cc parallel-twin engine, which makes 80hp and 77 lbs•ft of torque.
Two model variations are also expected. One will be road-going, and have cast wheels and street-focused rubber. The other will have spoked wheels and knobby tires.
Full and robust electronics are also expected on the Scrambler 1200, a key difference from the Desert Sled, as well as long-travel suspension.
In what our Bothan spies have told us so far, it is clear that Triumph took a long look at the rival Ducati, and set out to beat it in every way.
We won’t know the full details of the 2019 Triumph Scrambler 1200 until closer to the end of October, and we can also expect the Scrambler to debut at the EICMA show.
Until then, we have this teaser video from Triumph to chew on.
