Triumph Unveils The All-New Scrambler 400 X

An accessible mid-sized Scrambler from the Hinckley brand is coming soon.

Published on 06.27.2023

While we anxiously wait for Triumph’s new enduro line to be unveiled, the UK brand has dropped the cover on an all-new small displacement model called the Scrambler 400 X. With the goal of appealing to a new generation of riders, Triumph states the new bike is designed to be a fun, more accessible ride for all experience levels, while offering a high level of standard specification and low running costs. 

Designed from the ground-up by Triumph in Hinckley with a brand new 398cc single-cylinder, four-valve, liquid-cooled engine, the Scrambler 400 X takes its rugged design cues from the Scrambler 900 and 1200. Traditional touches, like the distinctive finned cylinder head and traditional exhaust header clamps combine with contemporary details like the upswept silencer, sensitively-incorporated technology, such as concealed liquid-cooling and a flowing exhaust run with hidden primary silencer.

According to Triumph the new powerplant is part of a new ‘TR Series’ and features state-of-the-art engineering to deliver class-beating performance with a responsive, fun, and characterful power delivery, along with an evocative, rich, and distinctive exhaust note. Technical highlights include a four-valve, DOHC cylinder head and a crankshaft that has been perfectly weighted and balanced to optimize inertia for low-speed rideability. A finger-follower valvetrain with a low reciprocating mass and DLC coatings that reduce friction, also contribute to the capacity-defying performance of this free-revving yet tractable engine.

The Scrambler 400 X’s powerplant is complemented by a six-speed gearbox designed to offer light, precise gear selection with ratios perfectly spread to make the most of this characterful and torque-rich engine.

With ergonomics designed for optimum comfort and control, the Scrambler 400 X benefits from a slim standover which combines with an accessible seat height of 32.9 inches (835mm) and a wet weight of 395 pounds (179kg) to offer assured low-speed handling and and easier ability to get feet to the ground.

The new bike also provides a more upright and commanding Scrambler riding position.

A larger cast steel brake pedal and high-grip foot pegs that are positioned lower and wider also make for a more natural standing riding position when riding off-road, while a larger 320mm front brake disc and optimized pad compound deliver reassuringly progressive braking performance in all conditions.

Traction Control and ABS

The traction control system on the Scrambler 400 X is switchable with a simple on or off selection, so the rider can quickly and easily deactivate the intervention. Bosch dual-channel ABS delivers assured braking in all conditions for added safety and peace of mind, and can also be deactivated on both wheels for enhanced control when riding off-road.

The clean and contemporary dual format instruments feature a large analogue speedometer and integrated LCD screen which includes a digital tachometer, a fuel range remaining, and a prominent gear indicator, clearly visible in all lighting conditions.All this functionality is accessed via an intuitive easy-to-use handlebar-mounted scroll button, and the display is even pre-enabled to show the status of accessory heated grips if fitted. A conveniently located USB-C charging port allows on-the-move charging of handlebar mounted devices, such as smartphones and navigation systems.

Torque-Assist Clutch

This ingenious system reduces clutch lever effort to reduce fatigue during stop/start riding, as well as improving rider confidence and peace of mind by preventing rear wheel locking during downshifts.

All-LED Lighting

Designed for performance and presence, the powerful headlight features a distinctive always-on glow, while the taillight also includes a modern light signature together with molded light guides and Triumph branding.

Factory-Fitted Security

The Scrambler 400 X comes equipped with a steering lock and an anti-theft immobilizer as standard. The transponder chip integrated into the ignition key ensures only the owner can start the engine.

100cc too small.

June 27, 2023 1:38 pm

People kept asking for smaller. Here it is. Too bad it is made in India.

India makes good stuff. My buds Enfield has had the nads run-off it, n it’s just fine. If they can make stuff as well as the Koreans can, great! Isn’t Japanese quality, but even Mercedes Benz is junk next to Lexus. Js….

Really?! I was so underwhelmed! Rather a Fantic Caballero 500 thank you!

Decent looking bike, and decent power, especially compared to the Royal Himalayan Scram 411( 22 hp). Would have been better with Spioke wheels.

Spokes woulda been nice. Great power, specially for a low maintenence motor. Love it. But too heavy. You can’t toss a 400lb into the weeds many times w/o breaking n bending stuff. Expensive stuff. Don’t ride what ya can’t afford to trash. No fun riding something you can’t push cuz ya can’t afford to crash/fix it. Js….

I did it but… At 400lbs and only 27ft lbs of torque this won’t be fun for an experienced rider at all. Especially in the dirt.

Why the bad blood against India ? Would China be a better option ? UK companies no longer produce their stuff in country due to high prices . India / Brazil / Thailand / Vietnam offer the cheapest labor but with cheap prices comes cheap quality . Of course for the average man this would be a good option . For the rich they create their own options .

Not a dirt bike, street cafe scrambler, for the posers!

June 28, 2023 7:05 am

It looks good, should be a fun ride for folks in the market for a smaller bike. I realize it is disappointing it’s made in India but such as it is, the world turns. Lots of “American” cars made in Mexico. India has a long history of MC culture and has far more riding citizens than anywhere in the west.

and 179kg too heavy

June 29, 2023 2:57 am

I’m wondering why they only show the right hand side of the bike? Good looking machine all the same. No list of accessories or photos. Is spoked wheels an option. Just three colours? Where is the area you can customise your machine?

Too heavy. We ALL want a 40+hp enduro w/low maintenence. There’s a reason we aren’t getting it, i’m sure, but darned if I know what it is. Thing is, anyone can make a heavy bike. If I wanted heavy, I’d buy a KLR or a DRZ. I have a Yam 250f, 2020 model I bought new for some unknown reason. Love it. Weighs 250ish, n makes a lil over 30hp. Won’t maintain 60mph though, unless I Rev the hell out of it, which I refuse to do. So I sorta skru’d myself. Looking at the Honda CRF450 really hard, though. I also own a KTM Super Duke, won’t ever sell it. Love that bike. The old one, the 990. It’s nigh-on perfect for me. But sure was hoping this one would be 325lbs or less. Ida put $ down on it today…..
