It had to happen, and it has, with the release of the 2019 Triumph Scrambler 1200 twin in this pre-release video. The teaser video does not reveal much, but it can be safely assumed the Scrambler 1200 will obviously be Hinckley’s signature twin.

What can be seen from the video is the long-legged front suspension, with the gaiters on the bottom end suggesting these will be upside-down units. A skid plate is also in evidence, signifying the off-road intentions of the Scrambler 1200.

Up front is what appears to be an LED headlamp, along with handlebar guards for that authentic off-roader look. As Triumph already has the basic building blocks of a 1,200 cc twin in the current Bonneville series, it would be likely the Scrambler will come in a different state of tune.

Other details include a proper 21-inch spoked front wheel, with the strong possibility of a 19-incher in the back, with spoked wheels. Based on what paultan.org saw on the Triumph Tiger 800 in Milan, Italy last year, the new Scrambler 1200 will have ride modes and switchable traction control, possibly with a ‘Custom’ or ‘Pro’ mode for serious dirt riding.

In the world of retro scramblers, competition for the 2019 Triumph Scrambler 1200 will come from the 2018 Ducati Scrambler 1100, recently launched in Malaysia at the Art of Speed custom show and priced from RM83,000. From the video, the Scrambler 1200 will receive its global launch at the end of October.
