Triumph has unveiled the all-new Speed 400 and Scrambler 400 X motorcycles, marking the first collaboration between Triumph and Bajaj. These bikes will be manufactured by Bajaj in India. The Speed 400 draws inspiration from the Speed Twin 900, while the Scrambler 400 X’s design is derived from the Scrambler 900.
Both models are powered by a new 398cc liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine known as the TR-series engine. It features DOHC architecture and produces 40hp at 8000rpm and 37.5Nm of torque at 6500rpm. The power and torque figures are similar to KTM’s 390 lineup, but the Triumph bikes deliver their peak performance at lower rev ranges. Both models come with a 6-speed gearbox.
The chassis of the Speed 400 and Scrambler 400 X differ slightly. The Speed 400 features a hybrid spine/perimeter frame made from tubular steel, while the Scrambler 400 X has a dedicated chassis with a 19-inch/17-inch alloy wheel combination and Metzeler Karoo Street tires. The suspension setup and travel also vary between the two models, with the Scrambler offering slightly more suspension travel. The Scrambler is also slightly heavier than the Speed, weighing 179kg compared to the Speed’s 170kg.
Both motorcycles come equipped with features such as all-LED lighting, ride-by-wire, switchable traction control, dual-channel ABS, an assist clutch, and a USB-C charging port. The instrument cluster is semi-digital, with an analogue tachometer and a small LCD screen displaying digital tachometer, gear position, trip data, and fuel gauge. The Scrambler’s ABS is switchable for off-road use. The official launch and price announcement for the Triumph Speed 400 and Scrambler 400 X in India will occur on July 5th.
