Triumph Rolls Out A Shred-Ready 1200cc Scrambler

As if their 900cc retro off-road Scrambler wasn’t powerful enough, Triumph is rolling out a 1200cc model for 2019. Powered by the motor from the Thruxton R, this new, gnarlier Scrambler features a design deliberately executed to blur the lines between a retro scrambler and a more modern adventure tourer. It will be available in two models: the 1200 XC and the fully-loaded, more off-road friendly XE, both featuring improved electronics, including bluetooth & GPS, as well as an app that will help manage all your trip data, calls, and performance feedback data.
