2019 Triumph Scrambler 1200 Coming Oct. 24

Triumph announced it will introduce a new Scrambler 1200 model on Oct. 24. We’ve previously published spy photos of the Scrambler 1200 undergoing testing, revealing long-travel suspension, twin front disc rotors and a 21-inch front wheel.

The announcement came with a 10-second teaser clip with a brief glimpse of the Scrambler 1200 in action.

What little we see does match what we saw from the spy photos, including some fairly knobby-looking tires. The earlier spy photos showed Pirelli rubbers on a 21-inch front wheel that has its wire spokes attaching to the edges of the rim, suggesting they support tubeless tires.

Triumph makes some bold claims about the Scrambler 1200, touting its off-road capabilities:

A brand new Triumph modern classic is set to create a riding revolution with a whole new benchmark for what makes a scrambler great.

The Scrambler 1200 marks the birth of a stunning new motorcycle generation. With never-before-seen levels of dual-purpose capability, this incredible full-on scrambler is as truly amazing off-road as it is on the road, doing everything an adventure bike can, and all with authentic scrambler style and attitude.

Because of the unprecedented worldwide interest in this next generation motorcycle, we’ve decided to release a series of exclusive insights into this genuine game-changer well in advance of its official launch.

Our spy photographer captured two prototypes in action, with some visual differences between them. This may be a case of Triumph testing various setups but it may also be a sign there could be two versions in the works.

We’ll know for certain on Oct. 24, when the 2019 Triumph Scrambler 1200 makes its debut. Interestingly, the launch date would put the Scrambler 1200 after Intermot and AIMEXPO, which means the first big motorcycle show that will show it will likely be EICMA in November.
