Triumph Motorcycles have launched the 2019 Triumph Scrambler 1200 to worldwide distributors and dealers last night (23rd October 2018).
An embargo was put in place but the pictures were leaked by Triumph Fans France on their Facebook page
The full details are sketchy at this time as the bike will be officially launched to the global media between 2pm to 5pm (London time) today. But we can see a number of important features:
- There are two variants to the Scrambler 1200 – one off road (XC), the other more road-centric (XE).
- nacelle houses a full TFT screen.
- The connectivity option includes GPS navigation and ability to sync with a GoPro, so you may control the camera via a toggle on the handlebar.
- Updated, longer travel suspension (180 mm travel) for the off-road version.
- Showa forks and Öhlins shocks.
- Brembo radially-mounted four-piston Monobloc calipers up front.
- The XC’s engine is wrapped in crash bars.
- Beefy aluminium swingarm.
- High-mounted front mudguard.
- Reinforced barkbuster-style handguards with aluminium framing on the outside.
The updates to the chassis and suspension ought to make the Triumph Scrambler 1200 a truly off-road capable modern retro. The long-travel suspension and swingarm are the tell-tale signs. So, no matter how one looks at it, the 2019 Triumph Scrambler 1200 could be the real-deal of scramblers.
Although engine remains the 1200cc, liquid-cooled, 270o crank, parallel-Twin unit, we are not sure if it has been upgraded.
More details to come later on today. Please stay tuned for more pictures and details of the bikes!
