Triumph Speed 400, Triumph Scrambler 400 X Launched in Malaysia

The much awaited Triumph Speed 400 and Triumph Scrambler 400 X were launched in Malaysia, over the weekend.

Both models represent what Triumph calls the T-Series. They offer an easier accessibility into the Triumph lifestyle and incredible value, with prices starting from just RM 26,900 to RM 29,900. It may also serve as the lightweight everyday big bike for those who already bigger cc bikes, especially in the urban environment.

The range of models take their design cues from the ever-popular Triumph Bonneville 900 and 1200 lineups, thus classifying them as modern retros, or the standard motorcycle.

However, as with all Triumphs, there is nothing “standard” (read: low end) about these two bikes, despite the lower capacity and price.

Features shared by both variants:
  • All-new fuel-injected, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder, DOHC, four-valve, 398cc engine.
  • The valvetrain features low-inertia finger followers with DLC (diamond-like coating).
  • It produces 39.5 hp (40 PS) at 8,000 RPM and 37.5 Nm of torque at 6,500 RPM.
  • It needs to be said that although the bike and engine are produced at the Bajaj plant, they are Triumph’s specifications and designs.
  • 6-speed transmission with torque assist clutch.
  • Machined and concealed liquid-cooling fins.
  • Black powder-coated engine casings.
  • Bosch engine management with ride-by-wire throttle and traction control.
  • Bosch dual-channel ABS as standard, but the rear ABS on the Scrambler 400 X can be turned off for off-road riding.
  • Analog speedometer with integrated LCD screen.
  • All-around LED lighting, with signature Triumph DRL (daytime running light).
