After months of spy photographs and whispers, premium motorcycle manufacturer Triumph unveiled the Speed 400 and Scrambler 400X today. The two motorcycles are the outcome of Bajaj and Triumph’s partnership and will be produced by Bajaj in India.
A 398cc liquid-cooled engine with a maximum torque output of 37.5Nm at 6500 rpm and a maximum horsepower output of 39.5bhp at 8000 rpm powers them mechanically. It uses a six-speed gearbox. Beginning on July 5, the Triumph Speed 400 and the Scrambler 400X will be available in our market. According to market estimates, the Speed 400 costs around Rs 3 lakh, while the Scrambler 400X is anticipated to cost slightly more. Let’s examine the differences between these new bikes as they enter the market.
Triumph has distinguished the two in terms of appearance, giving each look that matches its unique characteristics. The Speed 400’s neo-retro styling is based on the Speed Twin 900 and 1200 and features simple, fluid design lines. The well-shaped tank, with the enormous Triumph logo above it, makes the bike distinctive and aesthetically pleasing at the same time. Three color options are available for the motorcycle: Carnival Red, Caspian Blue, and Phantom Black.
The Scrambler 400X, on the other hand, has distinctive scrambler characteristics, including knuckle guards, a headlight grille, an optional raised fender, a padded handlebar brace, and a double-stacked exhaust. The Triumph 400X, which is also offered in the colors Matt Khaki Green and Fusion White, Carnival Red, Phantom Black, and Phantom Black and Silver, features the Triumph insignia ‘inside’ a broad white stripe that runs up the tank.
