Triumph Scrambler 400X is expected to launch in India in October 2023 in the expected price range of ₹ 2,80,000 to ₹ 2,90,000. Currently available bikes which are similar to Scrambler 400X are Yezdi Scrambler, KTM 390 Adventure X & Honda CB350RS. Another bike similar to Scrambler 400X is Benelli Leoncino 250 which is launching in January 2024 in India.
The Scrambler 400X is Triumph's most affordable scrambler in line up. There are two more – the Scrambler 900 and the Scrambler 1200- both of these bikes are sold in India.
The Scrambler 400X sits above the Speed 400, a modern retro motorcycle. These bikes are built around the same chassis and have the same engine. But the Scrambler 400X gets some different cycle parts to suit the bike's scrambler nature.
The Scrambler 400X has more rugged design elements, making it look off-road-ready. It gets a headlight protector, radiator, sump guards, and hand guards. The bike also has a handlebar brace and a longer front mudguard.
The Triumph Scrambler 400X is powered by a new 398cc liquid-cooled engine, which makes 39.5bhp of peak power at 8000rpm and maximum torque of 37.5Nm at 6500rpm. The motor is mated to a six-speed gearbox. Regarding the rest of the cycle parts, the bike gets a 43mm big piston with 150mm travel suspension at the front and a mono-shock with preload adjustment at the rear. Due to its off-road nature, the Scrambler 400X gets a much larger 19-inch front wheel and 17-inch alloy wheels are the rear. Metzelers have given this bike their Karoo Street tyres, which can perform off-road functions.
The brakes on the Scrambler 400X are slightly different from the ones on the Speed 400. The front brake disc is bigger at 320mm, whereas the rear gets a 230mm disc. Dual-channel ABS is standard, but Scrambler can switch off the rear ABS.
Regarding features, the Scrambler 400X gets a ride-by-wire, switchable traction control system, LED lights throughout and a part digital-analogue instrument cluster. This cluster shows ride data like fuel, gear indicator and two odometers. There's a C-type charging port that comes as standard.
The Scrambler 400X will be sold in Khaki Green, Carnival Red and Phantom Black. The bike will be launched in India on 5 July, and the deliveries are expected to commence by August.
