A test mule of the upcoming Bajaj-Triumph Scrambler has been spotted doing the rounds in India. It seems the company's 350-400cc motorcycle is almost ready to hit the showrooms, according to the newly surfaced video. Some reports suggest that the Bajaj-Triumph bike will go on sale in 2023 in the Indian market. The Scrambler will be the first Bajaj-Triumph motorcycle that is likely to displace between 350cc and 400cc. It could also offer Triumph accessories such as a top-box, tank bag, luggage mounts, and saddle bag, as can be seen in the spy shots. Expected to be launched later this year, the upcoming Scrambler could retail between Rs 2 lakh and Rs 3 lakh (ex-showroom). Spotted previously as well, its latest spy images give away some new details. Let's have a look:
Bajaj-Triumph Scrambler: Expected Design & Features
The almost production-ready Bajaj-Triumph Scrambler is likely to sport a classic fuel tank design with rubber padding, a round LED headlamp, a beak-type fender, upside-down front forks, pillion grab rail, saree guard, and sleek turn indicators. It will be suspended with the help of a mono-shock at the rear and ride on alloy wheels. For braking duties, the Scrambler will come equipped with disc brakes at both ends. A dual-channel ABS is anticipated to be offered as standard with it. Also, it could receive a dual exhaust tip, instead of single-exhaust tips.
On the feature front, the Scrambler will come with a digital-analogue instrument console, which allows customers to keep a tab on the speedometre placed on the left side (as per the video), tachometre, trip metre, fuel level, gear position indicator, and more.
Bajaj-Triumph Scrambler: Riding Ergonomics
In terms of riding ergonomics, the Scrambler seems to have an agreeable riding stance with centrally mounted footpegs. The handlebar is seen leaning in the direction of the rider, as per the latest spy images. It gets a twin-piece seat with a slightly narrow pillion-seat section.
Bajaj-Triumph Scrambler: Powertrain, Performance
The upcoming Bajaj-Triumph Scrambler could draw power from a liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine that will support a 350-400cc version. The engine is good enough to deliver around 40bhp of maximum power and will come mated to a 6-speed gearbox. Furthermore, a slipper clutch, ride-by-wire tech, quick shifter, and traction control could also come in handy. But, the official details have not been revealed.
Bajaj-Triumph Scrambler: Rivals
In terms of rivalry, the upcoming Scrambler is likely to compete against the Royal Enfield Hunter 350, the Honda CB 350RS, and the Yezdi Scrambler. The bike is a joint venture between Bajaj and Triumph. Bajaj took over Triumph's operation in India as part of the partnership deal signed way back in 2017.
