Triumph Scrambler 400 X is finally launched at an ex-showroom price of Rs 2,62,996. Previously we informed you about the upcoming launch of this scrambler and now it is here, and the price falls in the bracket we predicted earlier.
With this price tag, the bike is Rs 30,000 costlier than its sibling, the Speed 400.
Triumph Scrambler 400 X – A quick recap
In design, the scrambler is similar to its speed sibling, except for some differences in the scrambler such as the rounded side panel, a split seat, a headlight grille and also the company-fitted knuckle guards.
What also makes the Scrambler different from the speed is the former’s larger wheelbase and alloy wheels which allows the scrambler to go on some mini-adventures. The scrambler gets 150 mm of wheel travel at both ends and a 19-inch front wheel.
You also get a larger front disc brake at 320 mm and a switchable ABS.
Performance-wise, the scrambler 400 X shares the engine from its roadster sibling Speed 400 so expect the same performance in both. In case you are not aware, the engine is a liquid-cooled, single-cylinder DOHC 398 cc unit that puts out 40 hp at 8000 RPM similar to the upcoming Royal Enfield Himalayan 452 and 37.5 Nm of torque at 6,500 RPM. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox with a slip-and-assist clutch. The scrambler also has a kerb weight of 186 kg and a fuel tank capacity of 13 litres.
Just like the engine, the Scrambler and Speed share almost everything such as full-LED lighting, an analogue speedometer with LCD display, and a 230 mm rear disc brake unit.
Triumph Scrambler 400 X – Rivals
Just like we stated before, in its segment the Scrambler 400 X has no direct rival, if we compare in terms of the type of the bike. The closest rival would be the Yezdi Roadster although we go for performance comparison, the scrambler is locking heads with the likes of the KTM 390 Adventure X (Rs 18,000 costlier than the scrambler) and BMW G 310 GS. The upcoming Himalayan 452 is also a rival, given its performance.
The Speed 400 is a huge success and a well-accepted motorbike in the market courtesy of its affordable nature despite being a Triumph, which is a huge sigh of relief from both Bajaj and Triumph. So, its fingers crossed for the scrambler to become a success too, but considering it’s offering everything similar to its sibling, some buyers might hesitate to buy this one, since most people would be doing city and highway rides.
Deliveries as stated before will commence from November 2023 and the bike is being produced in Bajaj’s Chakan-2 plant in India, similar to its Speed sibling.
