Triumph has just released a teaser illustration (above) and short, 10-second video (below) of its all-new Scrambler 1200, which will be unveiled this fall on October 24 though additional details should trickle out as that date gets closer.
There’s not much to glean from the stylized illustration, which looks like it was printed on a T-shirt in the ’70s, but the Scrambler 1200 will almost certainly be built around a version of the 1,200cc parallel twin found in the Bobber, Speedmaster, Bonneville T120 and Thruxton, though the 1,215cc in-line triple that powers the Tiger Explorer 1200 models is also a possibility. Here’s what Triumph has to say about the upcoming Scrambler 1200:
“A brand new Triumph modern classic is set to create a riding revolution with a whole new benchmark for what makes a scrambler great.
“The Scrambler 1200 marks the birth of a stunning new motorcycle generation. With never-before-seen levels of dual-purpose capability, this incredible full-on scrambler is as truly amazing off-road as it is on the road, doing everything an adventure bike can, and all with authentic scrambler style and attitude.
Because of the unprecedented worldwide interest in this next generation motorcycle, we’ve decided to release a series of exclusive insights into this genuine game-changer well in advance of its official launch.”
In 2017, Triumph introduced the Street Scrambler, a major revamp of its Bonneville-based Scrambler built around the new liquid-cooled, 900cc “high torque” parallel twin that powers the Street Twin. As the name implies, the Street Scrambler is a pavement-oriented model whereas Triumph claims the new Scrambler 1200 will be “as truly amazing off-road as it is on the road.”
We’ll share more details about the new Triumph Scrambler 1200 as soon as they become available. in the meantime, check out the teaser video:
