Article by Drivio | 13th Oct 23
Arrived as a more rugged motorcycle than the Speed 400, the Triumph Scrambler 400X gets visual and mechanical tweaks over the former for mild off-roading.
- Available in three colours, the Triumph Scrambler 400X is priced at Rs 2.63 lakh(ex-showroom).
- The new Scrambler 400X is powered by Speed 400’s single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, 398.15cc engine, which produces 40 PS and 37.5 Nm.
- Along with visual tweaks, the new Scrambler 400X also gets longer suspension travel, a larger-sized front disc brake, and a different set of tyres than the Speed 400.
After launching the highly-awaited Speed 400 a few weeks ago, Triumph has dropped another bomb in the form of the new Scrambler 400X. Sharing its basic mechanical setup with the Triumph Speed 400, the Triumph Scrambler 400X now serves as the most affordable scrambler from the British brand, positioned below the Scrambler 900. Although, there is no direct competition for the Scrambler 400X (at this killer price), some of its remote rivals include the Bajaj Dominar 400, Yezdi Scrambler, and others.
If you are impressed with the first look of the new Triumph Scrambler 400X, here are seven aspects of the motorcycle that will encourage you to buy it:
Triumph Scrambler 400X: Design& Styling
The Triumph Scrambler 400X shares much of its design with the Speed 400, including the rounded LED headlamp, fuel tank, side body panels, and LED tail lamp. However, it does differentiate itself with a grille over the headlamp, split seats with a ribbed design, knobby tyres, fuel tank grips, and handlebar guards.
Triumph Scrambler 400X: Features& Attributes
In addition to the all-LED illumination for the headlamp, tail lamp, and turn indicators, the new Scrambler 400X also gets a part-digital instrument console, USB charging port, traction control, ride-by-wire, and switchable ABS. The semi-digital instrument console of the Scrambler 400X gets an analog speedometer and an LCD screen accompanying it, displaying a tachometer, fuel gauge, gear position indicator, odometer, and trip meters.
Triumph Scrambler 400X: Engine& Specs
The new Scrambler 400X shares its single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, 398.15cc engine with the Speed 400, and that too in the same state of tune – 40 PS of maximum power and 37.5 Nm of maximum torque. The 6-speed transmission on offer in the motorcycle also features a slip-and-assist clutch for smoother gearshifts.
Triumph Scrambler 400X: Suspension &Frame
Along with the engine, the Triumph Scrambler 400X also shares the perimeter frame with bolt-on subframe, upside-down hydraulic telescopic forks, and gas-charged mono-shock with pre-load adjustment at the rear with the Speed 400. However, the front and rear suspension setups of the Scrambler 400X offer a longer travel of 150mm, compared to 140mm at the front and 130mm at the rear of the Speed 400.
Triumph Scrambler 400X: Brakes & Tyres
While both Speed 400 and Scrambler 400X get the same 230mm disc brake at the rear, the front disc brake on offer in the Scrambler 400X is 320mm – slightly larger than the 300mm front disc offered in the Speed 400. The Scrambler 400X also gets a different set of wheels and tyres than the Speed 400 – 100/90-19 front and 140/80-17 rear.
Triumph Scrambler 400X: Price & Colours
The newly launched Scrambler 400X is being offered in three dual-tone colors – Matt Khaki Green with Fusion White, Carnival Red with Phantom Black, and Phantom Black with Silver Ice, all of which are available at Rs 2,62,996 (ex-showroom).
