New 2024 Triumph 400cc's: Both Affordable and Fun?

In the past affordability and fun has gone hand-in-hand like USA and Canada neighbours, but recently affordability tastes more like mustard ice-cream! Triumph wants to change all and bring back the good-ol-days with their new 2024 Triumph Speed 400 and 2024 Triumph Scrambler 400X motorbikes! While pricing hasn’t been released yet (coming soon they say) it MUST be below $5100 USD to stay competitive vs their 350-500cc rivals from BMW, Honda, Royal Enfield and Harley-Davidson. Yes, there there are Harley-Davidson 350, 440 and 500cc bikes such as 2023 Harley-Davidson X500, X350, X440 Denim, X440 Vivid and X440S.

I strongly suspect with the self-inflicted economic recession and uncontrolled government spending in the G7 countries (Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States) we will see many more under 500cc bikes become the normal. Take a look at India, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia and the Philippines and you’ll find 40-200cc motorcycles to be “big bikes” as affordability is a much lower price point than the G7’s… but, the G7’s affordability is dropping and even though sales of 500cc+ bikes are doing fine, insurance prices, for example is not fine for over 500cc with prices never higher in many areas. I personally pay x8 times more than I did in Houston, Texas here in Canada for the same coverage!

Also We at Total Motorcycle also try to offer more than our competition on the internet and have put together a unique 2024 Triumph TR-Series Engine Guide that you won’t find anywhere else all about the new 400cc Triumph TR engine! With style and presence that is 100% Triumph with signature DNA and exciting electric future to come.

Are the new 2024 Triumph 400cc’s both affordable and fun? What do you think?

2024 Triumph Speed 400

The Speed 400 and Scrambler 400 X: two all-new models joining the Triumph range in 2024. Born into a peerless bloodline, the Speed 400 roadster joins Triumph’s most successful modern classic line-up, the Speed Twin 900 and 1200 while the Scrambler 400 X takes its rugged design cues from the Scrambler 900 and 1200, with an off-road pedigree that goes back to the first factory Scramblers of the 1950s.

Designed from the ground-up with a brand-new single engine platform at their heart, these new models are designed to deliver a fun, agile and confidence-inspiring ride for riders of all ages and experience levels.

Together, with class-leading capability, rider-focused technology and category-leading quality and detail, and with a high level of standard specification, long service intervals and a comprehensive warranty, these accessible new models represent incredible value for money and bring Triumph’s iconic style, quality and performance to a whole new generation of Triumph riders.

 

TRIUMPH’S ICONIC SPEED AND SCRAMBLER DESIGN DNA
Conceived and designed in Hinckley, UK, these two new additions to the modern classics line-up have been developed with the same exacting attention to detail as Triumph’s most celebrated models. They are instantly recognisable thanks to their timeless Triumph silhouettes, signature sculpted fuel tanks and classic engine profiles and have been designed to deliver all of the quality, feel and presence of their larger capacity stablemates.

Traditional touches, like the distinctive finned cylinder head and traditional exhaust header clamps combine with contemporary details like the upswept silencer, bold graphics and sensitively-incorporated technology, such as concealed liquid-cooling and a flowing exhaust run with hidden primary silencer. All combining to deliver that unmistakeable Triumph modern classic style.

The high-quality finish and elegant detailing continues with the trademark black powder-coated engine casings, tough gold anodised forks, high-quality paint and logo detailing which ensure the finish on these new models is premium throughout.

The Speed 400’s two-tone paint schemes, each featuring a prominent Triumph tank graphic, reflect its dynamic roadster style, with Carnival Red, Caspian Blue and Phantom Black colours available.

Accentuating the Scrambler 400 X’s all-road attitude are lots of purposeful and practical features, including protection for the headlight, radiator and sump, as well as handguards, a handlebar brace with pad and a longer front mudguard.

The Scrambler 400 X is available in three stylish and contemporary colour schemes, each featuring Triumph’s distinctive ‘Scrambler’ tank stripe and triangle badge, with Matt Khaki Green and Fusion White, Carnival Red and Phantom Black, plus Phantom Black and Silver Ice options.

THE ALL-NEW TR-SERIES ENGINE
Named to celebrate the historic Triumph ‘Trophy’ bloodline, whose roots can be traced back to the racing singles of the early twentieth century, and in particular Six Day Trial offroad competition. This all-new fuel-injected and liquid-cooled 398cc single-cylinder engine combines Triumph’s trademark modern classic style with state-of-the-art engineering to deliver class-beating performance with a responsive, fun and characterful power delivery along with an evocative, rich and distinctive exhaust note.

Technical highlights include a four-valve, DOHC cylinder head and a crankshaft that has been perfectly weighted and balanced to optimise inertia for low-speed rideability. A finger-follower valvetrain with a low reciprocating mass and DLC coatings that reduce friction also contribute to this free-revving yet tractable engine’s capacity-defying performance.

The six-speed gearbox delivers light, precise gear selection with ratios perfectly spread to make the most of this characterful and torque-rich engine.

Key features of this all-new engine include:

  • Class-leading 40 PS peak power and 37.5 Nm peak torque
  • Liquid-cooled, single-cylinder, exceeds Euro 5 emissions
  • Concealed liquid-cooling and machined cooling fins
  • Trademark black powder-coated engine casings
  • Characterful, compelling and responsive power delivery
  • Evocative, rich and distinctive exhaust note
  • Six-speed gearbox

 

2024 Triumph Speed 400

TRIUMPH’S EASY, AGILE AND DYNAMIC CONFIDENCE-INSPIRING RIDE
With ergonomics designed for optimum comfort and control, the Speed 400 and Scrambler 400 X benefit from a slim waistline which combines with an accessible seat height of 790mm and 835mm respectively and a low weight of 170kg / 179kg to ensure assured low-speed handling and easy feet-down manoeuvres.

Both models benefit from their own model-specific chassis set-up, with a new frame, bolt-on rear subframe and cast-aluminium swingarm paired with suspension set-ups tailored to each use case, both delivering Triumph’s famously easy, agile and dynamic handling.

The Speed 400 features large 43mm big-piston upside-down front forks, mono-shock Rear Suspension Unit with external reservoir, lightweight 17-inch wheels and roadster-specific geometry and wheelbase. Giving an engaging and intuitive ride along with a comfortable, neutral riding position that inspires confidence for riders of all sizes and skill levels. Powerful four-piston radial front brakes with a 300mm front disc and braided lines give a responsive brake feel for improved rider confidence.

The Scrambler 400 X features a longer wheelbase, longer travel suspension, larger 19-inch front wheel and wide handlebars for greater stability and control when riding on loose surfaces, as well as providing a more upright and commanding Scrambler riding position. A larger cast steel brake pedal and high-grip foot pegs that are positioned lower and wider also make for a more natural standing riding position when riding off-road, while a larger 320mm front brake disc and optimised pad compound deliver reassuringly progressive braking performance in all conditions.

  • All-new frame with bolt-on rear subframe and cast aluminium swingarm
  • Model-specific Speed 400 and Scrambler 400 X set-up and geometry

MODERN RIDER-FOCUSED TECHNOLOGY
Adding rider convenience, performance and safety, the Speed 400 and Scrambler 400 X share some of the latest rider-focused technology, tailored to suit each model.

Ride-by-wire throttle
Bosch engine management with ride-by-wire throttle delivers a linear and intuitive throttle response with predictable power delivery for enhanced rideability, safety and control.

Traction Control and ABS
The traction control system on both models is switchable with a simple on or off selection, so the rider can quickly and easily deactivate the intervention. Bosch dual-channel ABS delivers assured braking in all conditions for added safety and peace of mind and on the Scrambler 400 X can also be deactivated for enhanced control when riding off-road.

Stylish new dual format instruments
The clean and contemporary dual format instruments feature a large analogue speedometer and integrated LCD screen which includes a digital tachometer, a fuel range remaining and a prominent gear indicator, clearly visible in all lighting conditions.

All this functionality is accessed via an intuitive easy to use handlebar-mounted scroll button, and the display is even pre-enabled to show the status of accessory fitted heated grips, if fitted. A conveniently located USB-C charging socket allows on-the-move charging of handlebar mounted devices, such as smartphones and navigation systems.

Torque-assist clutch
This ingenious system reduces clutch lever effort to reduce fatigue during stop/start riding, as well as improving rider confidence and peace of mind by preventing rear wheel locking during downshifts.

All-LED lighting
Designed for performance and presence, the powerful headlight features a distinctive daytime running light with Triumph DRL signature, while the tail-light also includes a modern light signature together with moulded light guides and Triumph branding. Slim, contemporary indicators complete the package.

Factory-fitted Security
Both the Speed 400 and the Scrambler 400 X come equipped with a steering lock and an anti-theft immobiliser as standard. The transponder chip integrated into the ignition key ensures only the owner can start the engine.
