The highly anticipated Triumph Scrambler 400 X has finally been unveiled, marking the first product of the strategic partnership between Triumph Motorcycles and Indian brand Bajaj. This exciting collaboration promises a range of small-to-mid-sized models, and the Scrambler 400 X is the first to hit the market.
Design and Features
The Scrambler 400 X is an entirely new design that draws inspiration from vintage desert sleds and ISDT/ISDE racers. It features a hybrid spine-perimeter frame constructed from tubular steel, offering strength, and flexibility. With a classic Bonnie tank and an upswept two-piece seat, it shares some elements with the Scrambler 900.
Equipped with a rear mono-shock with adjustable preload and a 43mm big-piston USD fork, the bike ensures a comfortable ride, whether you’re exploring off-road trails or cruising on the highway. It boasts a 19″ front and 17″ rear spoked aluminum wheelset with radial-mount quad-pot calipers and Metzeler Karoo Street tires, providing excellent grip and control.
Performance and Technology
The heart of the Scrambler 400 X is Triumph‘s all-new TR engine platform. This four-valve DOHC liquid-cooled 398cc single-cylinder engine generates an impressive output of 39.5hp and 27.7ft-lbs of torque. It has a six-speed transmission, ride-by-wire throttle, switchable traction control and dual-channel ABS, torque-assist clutch, and all-LED lighting.
Despite its smaller displacement, the bike offers high-end features typically found in larger models. It boasts a comfortable upright riding position, a curb weight of 395lb, and a seat height of 32.9″. Triumph also offers over two dozen optional factory accessories and add-ons, allowing riders to personalize their Scrambler 400 X according to their preferences.
Availability and Pricing
The Scrambler 400 X is set to hit dealerships in India next month, with a global rollout planned for Q1 of 2024. Triumph has not yet revealed the official pricing but has stated that it will be competitively priced. With its remarkable design, impressive performance, and attractive features, the Scrambler 400 X is poised to be a strong competitor in the adventure bike segment.
