Triumph Scrambler 1200 2021

TRIUMPH has just pulled the covers on the latest updates to the popular Triumph Scrambler 1200 models, including the XC, XE & Steve McQueen edition (limited to 1000 numbered units). Enhanced for 2021, these Scramblers look incredible!

All models will share the updated Euro 5 parallel twin 1200cc motor with lower emissions, and an updated Euro 5 exhaust with improved heat distribution thanks to new header geometry, with the cat moved a bit further back - yet still delivering that distinctive scrambler soundtrack. No more toasty thigh from that high scrambler exhaust!

Triumph Scrambler 1200 new Euro 5 motor - just as powerful.

Despite Euro 5 updates to the engine, Triumph has managed to keep the same power figures as on the previous Scrambler models, with peak power of 89 bhp reached @ 7250 rpm (limit is 7500 rpm), and peak torque of 110Nm at a nice and low 4500 rpm. 

The Scrambler performance with accompanying soundtrack is what this line has become renowned for. As ever, it’s a torque-rich experience with Scrambler tune, 270º crank angle, SOHC and 8 valves provide you with unchanged performance despite changes to the engine. 

There is also said to be marginal fuel consumption improvements thanks to the changes made in the engine department, with a 16-litre tank providing around 4.6 litres per 100 km consumption.

Triumph’s words, not mine - but absolutely true.

There’s a torque-assist clutch to make long rides easier, keyless ignition, cruise control, 5V USB power socket under seat to charge your device, perfect for use with the My Triumph app to enable phone calls, music operation, turn-by-turn navigation, GoPro control…

2021 Triumph Scrambler 1200 XC

The XC is the base model here - but that feels almost unfair to say it’s a base model since it still comes with top parts. There are a few slight differences between the two models.

A few of the key points for the XC: ø45mm Showa USD forks with 200mm travel & Öhlins adjustable twin rear with 200mm rear wheel travel, 547mm swingarm length, 5 riding modes, switchable ABS and traction control… 

The Scrambler 1200 XC will be available for £11,800, in dealers June 2021.

2021 Triumph Scrambler 1200 XE

Whilst the 1200 XE is poised for riders looking for that bit extra on the road and off it, with a touch more capable Scrambling set up. 

To list the XE features: Suspension at the rear is the twin Öhlins fully adjustable (preload, compression and rebound) with piggy-back reservoir with 250mm rear wheel travel with 579mm swingarm length, and upside-down high spec ø47mm Showa forks, fully adjustable for preload, compression and rebound.  

Elsewhere, rider comfort is adjustable to the rider, thanks to 65mm wider handlebars can be adjusted & have a removable 10mm spacer, with adjustable folding foot controls. The XE will also have the Scrambler Off-Road Pro mode, cornering ABS with three modes (road, off-road, off), and five traction control modes (road, rain, off-road, sport, off). 

Finally, the Scrambler 1200 XE comes with some premium details to cap the top-spec, with handguards, Brembo MCS lever, silver handlebar finish with black anodised risers and clamp, gold-coloured forks. 

The Scrambler 1200 XE is priced at £12,600, available in dealers June 2021. 

2021 Triumph Scrambler Steve McQueen Edition 

Finally, the limited edition Steve McQueen Scrambler. Inspired by the icon himself, limited and 1000 numbered units worldwide, this model will be styled with a unique Steve McQueen paint scheme, all of the high spec of the XE model and updates to the 2021 range. 

Each bike will be individually numbered on the machined handlebar clamp with McQueen signature etched in, aluminium radiator guard, Triumph brown seat, and engine protector dresser bars. What's more you get a certificate of authenticity with your model number printed on, print-signed by Nick Bloor (Triumph CEO) and Chad McQueen (son of Steve).

The limited Steve McQueen Edition model will be priced at £13,600, just £1,000 more than the XE model - so it’s no doubt going to be selling out quick. If you were wondering, the allocation plan is down to dealer choice and demand - so the chances are good to get your hands on one if you act fast.
