Triumph has introduced the Scrambler 400 X priced at Rs 2,62,996 (ex-showroom, Delhi), which is Rs 30,000 higher than its counterpart, the Speed 400 roadster.
The Scrambler 400 X shares the same 398cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine as the Speed 400, delivering 40hp at 8,000rpm and 37.5Nm at 6,500rpm, paired with a 6-speed gearbox and a slip and assist clutch. While the primary frame remains identical to the Speed 400, the Scrambler 400 X boasts taller suspension units and a larger 19-inch front wheel. It also carries a weight of 185kg, making it 9kg heavier than the Speed.
The increased suspension height raises the seat to 835mm and provides a ground clearance of 195mm, emphasizing its off-road capabilities. Notable off-road features include foot pegs with removable rubber inserts, a standard sump guard, and a headlight grille.
The Scrambler 400 X comes with different tire sizes – a 100/80-19 front and a 140/80-17 rear. The front brake has been upgraded to a larger 320mm unit, while the rear brake remains the same. It retains similar features to the Speed 400, with the added ability to deactivate the rear ABS.
In the price range, the only other liquid-cooled scrambler available is the Yezdi Scrambler, which is priced between Rs 2.10 lakh to Rs 2.12 lakh, but it is less powerful and less feature-rich compared to the Triumph. The closest competitor in terms of performance and capability is the KTM 390 Adventure X, also manufactured by Bajaj, which is priced at Rs 2.81 lakh (ex-showroom, India), making it Rs 18,000 more expensive than the Scrambler 400 X.
