MCN reporting that a new scrambler is coming using the 1200 twin. Sweeeeeet!
Yeah, looks promising.
Ohlins suspension, 21" front wheel, tubeless spoked rims. Nice. I want.
Hope they make a version with 19" front wheel....
About time. Surely it needs 7-8" of travel. Low or high fender option. And just say no to flat brat seats - they are the ugliest homemade looking seats around.
And 76 hp 78 tq or 96 hp 83 tq - what version 1200 motor will it show up with?
And how heavy will Triumph make it - I'll bet they can't keep it under 500 lbs.
The potential is there though!
A dirty Thruxton!
Thankfully minus the fake Amal Monoblocs (fake carbs were bad enough on the older bikes, fake 50 YO carbs are MUCH worse)
Like the flat seat and apparent tubeless spoked wheels, looks like it would work well for real world riding where I live plus 75hp is ideal for me...hope this lives up to expectations and Triumph can keep the weight down.
My gut tells me that the Scrambler 1200 will be my next motorcycle.
Been waiting a long time for this. I already put some money down at the local shop.
Hope this is all that and a bag of chips, would love for it to be a Triumph along the lines of the desert sled
That’s probably more like it. And really a street bike with Scrambler cues. I’m o.k. with that. I’d like a flattrack looking bike with mag wheels and a 3/4 seat + cowl.
I just sold my Tiger 800 Roadie and I am going out to ride a T120 today BUT if I had any patience I would wait until this comes out. I am sure it will be $15,000+ though.
At least that much.
Lol ended up buying a used F650GS and loving it.
Nothing new? Come on! Give us something...
I was just on the website and they are saying an all new Street Scrambler & Street Twin as well as the new Scrambler 1200
21/18 or 21/17? I suspect the later
Such as H-D is coming in late with a adv bike (not discounting the Buell Ulysses), so is Triumph coming in late with a competitive Scrambler. Triumph has sat on the Scrambler name and squandered time, reputation, and sales by going the route they have. The Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled is the new scrambler.
Hopefully Triumph is for real enough for a good modern day retro Scrambler, with good looks, suspension and the ability to carry two bags/panniers. 10/24 we'll know more. I have other bikes to ride... but still sitting on my old 2010 Scrambler. Always been a... good bike.
BTW, let me design the saddle. Two of them.
