Triumph Unveils Updated Scrambler 1200 Models With Lower Pricing

New X and XE models receive optimized tuning, new suspension and more.

Published on 10.03.2023

Four years after its launch, Triumph has unveiled an updated Scrambler 1200 lineup for 2024. The range still includes two variants, however the more street-oriented XC has been replaced by the more-accessible X model while the dirt-focused XE hits the road in the new year with several performance-oriented updates.

Both models sport the same 1200cc Bonneville parallel-twin engine and torque-rich Scrambler tune with a new, single 1.96” (50mm) throttle body and revised exhaust headers, delivering improved flow and a broader spread of torque from 5,000 RPM through to the redline. 

Rolling on 21”/17” wheels, the two variants have also been tuned to deliver a more balanced power delivery for both on and off-road riding. Peak power now arrives slightly earlier in the rev range, reaching 89 horsepower at 7,000 RPM, with peak torque of 81 ft-lbs also arriving earlier, at 4,250 RPM.

Both variants share the same dedicated tubular steel Scrambler frame, as well as high specification side-laced stainless steel wire-spoked wheels with lightweight and durable aluminum rims. The two models provide key ergonomic differences, including different handlebar designs, with the XE measuring 2.56” (65mm) wider than the X ensuring greater control on more challenging off-road terrain. Reversible risers enable riders to adjust the handlebar position, and the XE also features a removable spacer, for a .39” (10mm) height adjustment. Expanding ergonomics even further, the XE also boasts adjustable foot controls to suit a variety of riding styles and footwear.

Both bikes feature a twin-sided, premium cast aluminum swing arm. At 22.8” (579 mm), the XE has a 1.26” (32 mm) longer swingarm and a longer wheelbase than the X, enhancing control and confidence on difficult off-road terrain, while the X’s shorter wheelbase contributes to an agile and responsive road-ride.

Built to be more accessible, the X variant’s suspension travel has gone down from the XC’s 6.7″ (200 mm) front and rear to 170 mm, reducing seat height down to 31.29” (795 mm) with the accessory low seat.  The rear suspension units come with piggy-back reservoirs and adjustable preload.

The XE has a more off-road focused setup, with 9.8″ (250 mm) of suspension travel front and rear. Replacing last year’s 47mm Showa fork and twin Ohlins rear shocks are optimized Marzocchi 45mm forks and premium, twin spring Marzocchi suspension units which are fully adjustable and have more incrementality in adjustment for compression and rebound, giving even greater control.

Braking

When it comes to braking, the XE boasts latest generation Brembo Stylema radial Monoblock front calipers with twin 12.6” (320 mm) floating discs while the rear is held down by a 10.04 (255 mm) disk with a Nissin caliper, further maximizing braking performance. In turn, the X model features twin 310 mm floating front discs, with Nissin twin-piston axial calipers while the rear is supported by a 10.04” (255 mm) rear disc and a Nissin floating brake caliper. The front brake lever position can also be adjusted to the rider’s preference on both models.

Technology

The Scrambler X and XE both feature optimized cornering ABS and optimized cornering traction control, regulating intervention to deliver and maintain optimum traction at any lean angle. Five rider modes are available for the Scrambler 1200 X, each with their own dedicated throttle response and specific ABS and traction control settings. Riders can choose from Sport, Road, Rain, Off-Road and Rider Configurable, while the XE also has Off-Road Pro to allow the experienced rider complete uninterrupted control for the most challenging off-road riding.

Greater riding stability is achieved thanks to a high specification Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) which has been developed in conjunction with Continental. This system enables the optimization of cornering ABS and Traction control, automatically selecting the correct setting by measuring roll, pitch, yaw, and acceleration rates to calculate lean angle. With particular focus on enhancing the overall riding experience, the X and XE are both equipped with a torque assist clutch.

The Scrambler 1200 XE features integrated and customizable full-color TFT instruments. Two minimal and stylish information layout design themes are available, each with a further three options to change the level of information displayed. The choice between a high or low contrast display is also available, as well as a personalized start up screen to make the latest Scrambler XE feel more like your own.

The Scrambler 1200 X features a dedicated hybrid multi-function LCD/TFT display, incorporated in an circular instrument dial. This compact, and minimal display can be easily read at a glance.
