Triumph Scrambler 1200 XE

The former Triumph Scrambler was based on the Bonneville. Now, the Scrambler XE/XC has its own chassis, suspension, and electronics package, introduced in 2019.

The 1,200cc parallel twin platform essentially hasn’t changed since 2006, but it got better with 12.5% more peak power in the Scrambler.

Triumph’s oversquare-bore 1200cc twin (97.6mm/80mm, bore/stroke) produces around 90 hp at 7,400 rpm right before its 7,500 rpm redline. It reaches peak torque of 81 lb-ft at only 3,950 rpm. But peak numbers are a disservice to the engine’s torque curve. It has H-D-like torque, but happily revs past The Motor Company’s typical low redline.
