Triumph has been caught testing out its new Scrambler. A few spy shots of the 2019 Triumph Scrambler 1200 have surfaced which tell us that the British motorcycle manufacturer was testing out two models of the bike.
As per the spy shots, it seems that both the models are fitted with the 1200cc engine that is being used in the current generation of Bonneville. This can be told because there are dual discs at the front coupled with radially mounted Brembo calipers. This setup is usually seen on quite powerful motorcycles, so guessing that there’s a 1200cc engine powering these motorcycles wouldn’t be wrong.
The two test mules of the 2019 Triumph Scrambler 1200 had a few different elements which also suggest that maybe both of them are two different models or perhaps Triumph is just testing out different parts. One of the two test motorcycles has got knobbier tyres, frame sliders and a metal bar mounted at the bottom frame. The other motorcycle has a proper bash plate, less knobbier tyres and different-looking hand guards.
The suspension setup at the front seems to be long and has a longer rake angle too. Perhaps, this would allow Triumph to throw in a 21-inch front wheel. The suspension at the rear is dual Ohlins shocks. There’s also a cast aluminium swingarm.
There is no official word about the new 2019 Triumph Scrambler 1200 from the company. We’re expecting it to be unveiled sometime during the end of this year, perhaps, at the EICMA show.
