2012 Triumph Scrambler

Classic Triumph motorcycles. The way bikes should look, run and sound.

A modern interpretation of a timeless classic, the Scrambler demands attention wherever it goes.

2012 Scrambler – The stuff of Hollywood legends. No-nonsense 60s attitude. Ready for action.

Scrambler. Stripped down. Purposeful. Head turning. The stuff of Hollywood legends. With the latest twist. Our latest fuel injected, air-cooled 865cc parallel-twin, reworked with different timings for that distinctive exhaust note from those classy high swept chrome pipes. Fork gaiters. Pulling strongly from low down. An accessible ride that’s easy and relaxed. What it’s always been. Only better. Scrambler.

The 2012 model will begin arriving in North American dealerships in October 2011.

A sense of adventure from back in the day. A modern interpretation of a timeless classic, the Scrambler demands attention wherever it goes. Triumph’s legendary 865cc air-cooled parallel-twin engine with modern fuel injection and plenty of torque. The distinctive sound from the 270 degree firing order and the twin stainless steel upswept pipes. Add classic styling details and it’s easy to understand why the Scramblers of the past were the stuff of Hollywood legends.


865cc Engine

Triumph’s legendary air-cooled 865cc engine delivers plenty of midrange torque. 90% of peak torque is maintained from around 2,500rpm to redline, giving smooth power delivery.


Handling

Strong tubular steel cradle frame with supple front and rear suspension. Built tough to iron out the bumps. High wide handlebars and high set footpegs further aids control.


Fuelling

The Scrambler features a fuel injection system compliant to Euro 3 legislation. True to the 60’s styling, the fuel injectors are cleverly concealed by throttle bodies designed to look like traditional carbs.


Wheels

19 inch spoked front wheels and 17 inch spoked rear wheels with light knobbly tyres complete the authentic look.


Exhaust

High level twin chromed stainless steel exhaust pipes, retro styled silencers and evocative heat shields are key to the Scrambler’s unique looks.
