Triumph Teases Scrambler 1200 Again

Triumph has released a second video teasing its new Scrambler 1200, once again reminding us it will debut on Oct. 24. Thankfully, this video is a bit longer and shows more detail than the initial teaser video.

The new video gives us a couple of good looks at the headlight, inverted forks, bash plate and high-mounted scrambler-style exhausts, though we could probably do without the J.J. Abrams-esque lens flare.

Seriously, what kind of lighting could possibly produce a bright flash from this corner of a skid plate?

The headlight looks like the same circular LED light as Triumph’s other Bonneville 1200 models. In some markets, this includes an LED daytime running light. The instrument cluster however appears to be different from the ones used on Triumph’s other 1200cc Twins.

The instrument nacelle above the headlight has a more oblong shape than the single circular one on the Bonneville Speedmaster and Bobber, nor is it the dual circular setup found on the Bonneville T120 or Thruxton.

We also get a nice shot of the Scrambler 1200’s silhouette, which clearly illustrates the Scrambler 1200’s high ground clearance. It may be a trick of the light, but the tires look too smooth to be the ones visible from the first teaser. The spy photos that we saw in March, showed two prototypes shod with different tires, so this may indicate Triumph will have two versions of the Scrambler 1200, one offering more off-road capability and the other better prepped for staying on the asphalt.

We’ll know more when the 2019 Triumph Scrambler 1200 is fully revealed on Oct. 24, or earlier if Triumph releases another teaser, which is entirely likely as we still have seven more weeks to go.
