Thrilling Performance

The most recent iteration of Triumph’s distinctive 1200cc high-power British twin powers the Scrambler 1200. The engine upgrade, brand-new for 2021, reduces emissions and meets or exceeds Euro-5 standards. The result is impressive torque from low down straight through the rpm range thanks to a standard inertia crank, a high compression cylinder head, and a unique Scrambler tune built mainly to produce the optimal power and torque distribution for both road and off-road riding.

Maximum power of 90PS comes at 7,250rpm, while peak torque of 110Nm is reached at just 4,500 rpm. The double high-level exhaust system on the 1200cc 8-valve parallel twin engine, upgraded for Euro 5 conformity and benefits from better heat distribution, gives the Scrambler its recognizable sound.
