In another potentially collaboration, Triumph Motorcycles and Bajaj are believed to be working on the development of a 250cc scrambler motorcycle. 

  • several reliable Indian publications have reported sightings of the Speed 250 and Scrambler 250 models listed on the manufacturer’s website.
  • a 250cc scrambler could expand Triumph’s market reach globally. 

Bajaj has been entrusted with the production and development of the Triumph Speed 400 and Scrambler 400 X models, which were recently launched to great acclaim on June 27, 2023. 

By outsourcing production to Bajaj, Triumph aims to make its motorcycles more accessible to a wider range of riders around the globe.

The introduction of the Speed 400 and Scrambler 400 X motorcycles has significantly lowered the entry barriers to Triumph ownership, as these new models are considerably more affordable than the existing lineup. Prior to their release, the Trident 660 stood as the most affordable Triumph motorcycle. 

Although the purported listings of the Speed 250 and Scrambler 250 on Triumph’s website could not be independently verified, the multiple credible sources reporting their presence indicate that these models are either in development or already prepared for an imminent launch.

While it is essential to approach these reports as speculative until officially confirmed by Triumph, the introduction of a 250cc motorcycle series would undoubtedly strengthen the brand’s presence and appeal to a wider audience.

Modenas has launched the 2023 Modenas Dominar D400 Adventure in Malaysia at the Malaysia Autoshow 2023 with a recommended selling price of RM15,797. The new model comes with updated styling and features designed to cater to the touring motorcycle segment.

  • The Dominar 400 Adventure features additional accessories allowing for better touring capabilites. 
  • The addition of a taller windscreen, handleguard adds comfort for longer rides. 

The Dominar D400 Adventure received an update in 2019, transforming it into a touring motorcycle. The updated model comes with a taller windscreen, hand guards, leg guards, an engine bash plate, and a passenger backrest, making it more comfortable for long rides. 

In addition, the Dominar 400 Adventure  also comes with a smartphone mount with a USB charging port.

Powering the  Dominar D400 Adventure is a single-cylinder 373cc with three-spartk plug engine that pumps 39.4hp with 35 Nm of torque to the rear wheel. 

The Dominar D400 Adventure is equipped with non-adjustable 43mm diameter upside-down forks and a Nitrox monoshock in the rear, which is adjustable for preload. The motorcycle also features single hydraulic discs for braking duties in the front and rear, and two-channel ABS is standard equipment.

The Dominar D400 Adventure tips the scale at 182 kg and is available in two exciting colours – Savanna Green and Charcoal Black. 

The Triumph-Bajaj partnership has been progressing steadily over recent months, and it seems that a new bike is on the horizon. A recent video posted on YouTube by The Fat Biker has given us the clearest look yet at a Triumph Bajaj test mule being tested on roads in India.

  • The test mule is seen with alloy wheels instead of wire-spoked wheels shown last year. 
  • Reports suggest the all-new motorcycle is likely to break cover towards the end of 2023. 

The bike is believed to be a 400cc machine, with a neutral and upright seating position and mid-mounted foot pegs. It features cast wheels (19-inch up front and a 17-inch in the rear), high-mounted fenders front and rear, and an underslung exhaust with a dual-tipped canister mounted low on the right side. LED lighting is present throughout the bike, and the speedometer is analog.

While it’s not yet clear when the new Triumph-Bajaj bike will be formally revealed, bike press in India believes it will happen later in 2023. 

The upcoming bike is expected to directly compete with other scramblers like the Royal Enfield Scram 411, the Yezdi Scrambler, and the Honda CB350RS.

With eight months to go until the formal reveal, enthusiasts are eagerly awaiting more information about this exciting new offering from the Triumph-Bajaj partnership. Stay tuned for more updates on this upcoming model.
