From Triumph press release

Triumph is launching its Scrambler lineup for 2024, with the introduction of the new,
more accessible Scrambler 1200 X, and an enhanced top-specification Scrambler 1200
Featuring the Triumph high-torque 1200cc Bonneville engine with powerful performance,
off-road ready 21-inch front wheel, and a premium quality and finish, the two new
models will raise the bar even higher for performance and style in the Scrambler

The new Scrambler 1200 X delivers the same exceptional core capability, commanding
riding position, and torque-rich performance Scrambler customers love, combined with a
generous specification of equipment and technology. Built to be more accessible, the
Scrambler 1200 X has a seat height of 32.28” (820mm), reducing to 31.29” (795mm)
with the accessory low seat, a dedicated specification that offers exceptional
functionality at a more competitive price, and a 10,000 mile (16,000 km) service interval
to lower the cost of ownership.
The cool and capable Scrambler 1200 XE also hits the road in the new year sporting
updates including latest-generation Brembo Stylema ®  calipers, new suspension with
enhanced adjustability, enhanced styling details, and improved touring capability.
Steve Sargent – Chief Product Officer, Triumph Motorcycles
“Built for both on-road and off-road adventures, the new Scrambler 1200 XE sets an
even higher bar for performance, capability, and modern classic style. The Scrambler
1200 X is a new choice for our customers, optimized to deliver the specification riders
have asked for, with a lower seat height, even more competitive pricing, and an even
better road ride than the previous Scrambler 1200 XC.”
With the high specification and technology that customers value, the new Scrambler
1200 XE features:

- Updated latest generation Brembo Stylema ®  radial monoblock calipers with
twin floating 320mm discs, and single piston Nissin caliper on the rear
- Optimized Marzocchi TM   1.77” (45mm) USD forks and ‘twin-spring’ RSUs with
piggyback reservoirs
- New optimized Marzocchi TM  suspension with long 9.84” (250mm) wheel travel
front and rear is fully adjustable with enhanced adjustability
- Revised intake & exhaust headers delivering a broader spread of torque
through the upper rev range
- Enhanced styling details including new compact taillight
- Improved touring capability with accessory high screen and rugged luggage
system with tail bag accessory options.

Both models sport the same 1200cc Bonneville 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 through the upper rev-range,
from 5,000 RPM through to the redline.
The 2024 models have also been precisely tuned to deliver the perfect balance of power
delivery for both on and off-road riding. Peak power now arrives slightly earlier in the rev
range, reaching 89 HP at 7,000 RPM, with peak torque of 81 lbs.-ft. also arriving earlier,
at 4,250 RPM.
The unmistakable high-specification twin-exhaust system is completed by brushed
stainless steel silencers, delivering that trademark deep and characterful Scrambler

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” (579mm),
the XE has a 1.26” (32mm) 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.
These bikes are also equipped with top of the range Metzeler tires. The X benefits from
the road-focused, dual-purpose Karoo Street, while the XE variant runs on Metzeler
Tourance, contributing to its unparalleled balance of road and off-road capability. For
even more extreme off-road capability, the Triumph-approved Michelin Anakee Wild is
the tire of choice.
Both models are kitted out with high specification suspension. The X variant features
road biased Marzocchi TM  45mm cartridge forks at the front and suspension units
supporting at the rear. The rear suspension units come with piggy-back reservoirs and
adjustable preload, allowing customers to fine tune their riding experience on the road
and beyond.
The XE has a more off-road focused setup, with optimized Marzocchi TM  45mm forks and
premium, twin spring Marzocchi TM  suspension units which are fully adjustable and have
more incrementality in adjustment for compression and rebound, giving even greater
control. This optimized suspension provides a significant 250mm of wheel travel front
and rear for unparalleled off-road capability and ground clearance.

When it comes to braking, both models feature state of the art equipment for guaranteed
efficiency across road and dirt. The XE boasts powerful latest generation
Brembo TM  Stylema® radial Monoblock front calipers with twin 12.6” (320mm) floating
discs, providing class-leading braking performance. While the front is taken care of, the
rear is held down by a 10.04 (255mm) disk with a Nissin caliper, further maximizing
braking performance.
The X model features twin 310mm floating front discs, with Nissin twin-piston axial
calipers. Meanwhile, the rear is supported by a 10.04” (255mm) rear disc and a Nissin
floating brake caliper, to deliver a confident braking performance on the road. The front
brake lever position can also be adjusted to the rider’s preference on both models.

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 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 elegantly styled circular instrument dial. This compact, and minimal
display can be easily read at a glance.

Both models feature the key elements that make the Scrambler simply unmistakable,
from their distinctive silhouettes to the signature high-level twin exhaust design and
beautifully sculpted fuel tank. Both models feature a classic one-piece ribbed bench
seat, in black for the XE and brown for the X and both boast enhanced styling details
and compact taillight housing.
The bikes are complete with a variety of striking finishes and details, including sculpted
side panels with brushed aluminum Scrambler 1200 badge, the iconic Triumph triangle
tank badge, a brushed aluminum Monza-style filler cap and brushed stainless strap.
 The XE is finished with brushed aluminum mudguards, while the X features high quality
painted mudguards.
There are three unique color schemes available for each model. The Scrambler 1200 XE
will be available in contemporary Phantom Black & Storm Grey, which features red
accents, the bold new Baja Orange & Phantom Black, or ever-popular Sapphire Black.
The Scrambler 1200 X is available in rich Carnival Red, cool Ash Grey, or classic
Sapphire Black.

More than 70 genuine accessories are available to bring an even greater touring
capability, ranging from heated grips, 9.25 Gallon (35 L) tail bag and high ‘Dakar’ screen,
to high-level front mudguard, handlebar brace and stainless-steel engine bars. The
complete rugged luggage system now offers 26.95 Gal (102 L) of total stowage capacity.

The new Scrambler 1200 line-up can trace its roots directly back to the original
Scrambler scene of the early 1950’s, where Triumph played a pivotal role and set the
template for what made a Scrambler great. Building the leading bikes of the day,
stripped back with straight-through ‘twin pipes’ fitted high or low slung and chopped off –
Triumphs were the original desert sleds. These inspired the world’s first production
scramblers, with the Bonneville T-120TT and the TR6’SC’. In 2006, with the launch of
the very first ‘modern era’ Scrambler, Triumph again delivered the genesis of a new
category. This triggered the world of Scramblers we see today and a whole new global
fan base, from urban riders to movie stars, even featuring in the latest Bond film, No
Time to Die.
