Triumph Motorcycles India started taking pre-orders for the Speed 400 and the Scrambler 400x, two of the company's forthcoming models in India. These motorcycles were introduced in London, UK, and will be produced by Bajaj Auto in Maharashtra, India. Both items are shown on the company's India website, where prospective customers may reserve either motorbike for the low-low price of Rs 2,000. Both the Triumph Speed 400 and Scrambler 400 X are quite different in appeal but come with over 25 genuine accessories that cover everything from styling and comfort to luggage and security. The company says that all accessories have been designed and developed alongside the motorcycles to ensure correct fit and function. Tiumph's Speed 400 and Scrambler 400X will debut in our market on July 5. Market predictions place the Speed 400's price at roughly Rs 3 Lakh, while the Scrambler 400X might ask for a little more. Let's have a look at the motorcycles' characteristics, stats, and design as they are about to hit our market.
Triumph Speed 400, Scrambler 400X: Accessories
Luggage choices for the Scrambler 400 X and Speed 400 include soft panniers, semi-rigid and rigid top box options, and a nylon bag. There is a luggage rack in the back for carrying a roll-top bag, and you can get one from Triumph or any other manufacturer to fit it.
Both the Scrambler 400X and the Speed 400 include a mud-splash package that includes front mud-guard extenders, as well as aluminium sump guards and upper and lower engine guards.
Owners of the Scramble 400X and the Speed 400 have the option of purchasing alternative design indicators in addition to the standard LED units. Windscreens and quilted seats are also available as optional extras.
While they come standard on the Scrambler 400X, the Speed 400 offers the option of purchasing knee pads and tank cuts as options. The Speed 400 also has an optional Scrambler double-barrel exhaust system.
Triumph Speed 400, Scrambler 400X: Engine
Triumph's new single-cylinder TR-series engine provides power for these two motorcycles. Powered by a liquid-cooled DOHC motor of 398cc. Although the Triumph and the KTM 390 series share comparable power and torque (39.5bhp at 8000rpm and 37.5Nm at 6500rpm), the British motorcycles reach their peak performance sooner in the rev range. Like the KTMs, the Triumphs have a 6-speed gearbox.
On July 5, Triumph will launch the Speed 400 and the Scrambler 400X to the Indian market. The Scrambler 400X might ask for a little more than the market average, while the Speed 400 is expected to cost about Rs 3 Lakh.
