New Triumph 400 X Scrambler

Triumph is launching a totally new 400 cc bike (actually 2 different models using the same engine) And one of them is a Scrambler X version.
Maybe we later on could see a Tiger and even maybe a Tiger Rally version with this engine….?
Wet weight is 179 kilos, wheels 19/17, 13 liter gas tank and 40 HP and 37,5 Nm tourqe. A bit weighty but still 20 kilos less than the Himalayan and similar weight as the KTM 390 Adv and the BMW 310 GS

The advertized 16,000 KM service interval, on an English bike, gives me pause. Otherwise, looks like a nice little Svartpilen competitor.

It's as English as Green Curry

Made by Bajaj.

10000 miles is achievable by any modern engine assembled in clean conditions and not used in down town Bangkok in rush hour. Lower intervals are set by sellers of oil.

Me too. It'll probably all have leaked out by half that distance.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
