Triumph is all geared up to launch two of the most eagerly-awaited models of the year, the Triumph Speed 400 and the Scrambler 400X in India tomorrow. These bikes, which were unveiled in London, UK, will be manufactured by Bajaj Auto in the Indian state of Maharashtra. Both motorcycles are shown on the company's India website, where buyers may book the motorcycles for only Rs 2,000. The Triumph Speed 400 and the Scrambler 400X have quite a different appeal, yet both come with over 25 genuine accessories that cover everything from aesthetics and comfort to luggage and security. Triumph claims that all motorcycle accessories have been created in conjunction with the motorcycles themselves to ensure an ideal fit. The Speed 400 is expected to cost about Rs 3 lakh, while the Scrambler 400X might ask for a little more. These new motorcycles are set to launch tomorrow, so let's have a look at their specs, features, and design.
Triumph Speed 400, Scrambler 400X: Design and Dimensions
The appearance of the new Triumph Speed 400 and the Scrambler 400X is really appealing. There are aesthetic similarities between the Speed Twin 900 and the Speed 400, although the latter has a considerably more up-to-date and contemporary design. Both the Scrambler 400X and the Speed 400 have the same suspension travel. The Scrambler 400X is equipped with a refreshed exhaust system, all-terrain tyres, and removable seats.
The two motorcycles are significantly different in size from one another. The Scrambler 400X has a longer wheelbase than the Speed 400, measuring 1,418mm as opposed to 1,377mm. The height of the seats also varies. With an 835mm height compared to the Speed 400's 790mm, the Scrambler 400X is 35mm taller.
Triumph Speed 400, Scrambler 400X: Engine & Gearbox
Triumph's new TR-series engine provides the power for both of these motorcycles. The liquid-cooling engine has a displacement of 398cc and a double overhead camshaft configuration. When compared to the KTM 390 series, the Triumph's power and torque ratings are comparable (39.5bhp at 8000rpm and 37.5Nm at 6500rpm), but the British motorcycles reach their peak output sooner in the rev range. Like the KTMs, both Triumphs motorcycles have a 6-speed gearbox.
Triumph Speed 400, Scrambler 400X: Features
All-LED headlights, switchable traction control, dual-channel ABS, an assist clutch, a USB Type-C charging port, and semi-digital instrument clusters are just some of the standard features on both motorcycles. Each motorcycle has an analogue speedometer in addition to a small LCD display. There's a digital tachometer, a gear position indicator, a trip computer, and a fuel gauge.
It's interesting to see the heated grip sign there, maybe the British maker will provide this feature as an option. Owners of the Scrambler may put the motorcycle's dual-channel ABS into an off-road setting if they so want.
Triumph Speed 400, Scrambler 400X: Expected Price and Rivals
Pre-orders for these incredible vehicles have already begun, with the base price of the Speed 400 rumoured to be Rs 2.9 lakh and the base price of the Scrambler 400X possibly coming in at Rs 3.2 lakh (both, ex-showroom). Motorcycles like the KTM 390 Duke, the BMW G 310 R, the Honda CB300R, the Yezdi Scrambler, and the Honda CB350RS will be stiff competition for Triumph's forthcoming motorcycles.
