Following their global unveil in London last week, the new Triumph Speed 400 and Scrambler 400 X were launched in India today at Bajaj Auto Ltd’s Akurdi premises in Pune. The Triumph Speed 400 and Scrambler 400 X are designed by Triumph and will be produced in Bajaj Auto’s new Chakan plant. They will be available at an exclusive Triumph dealer network which will rapidly ramp up to more than 100 dealerships across 80 cities within this fiscal year. Class-leading 16,000 Kms service interval and Two-year unlimited mileage warranty seal the deal by a long shot! Indian Speed and Scrambler 400 are 6 kg and 8 kg respectively. The Indian bikes come with Apollo tyres and MRF tyres as options.
Speed 400 has been announced at a very attractive price of Rs. 2,33,000 (Ex showroom Delhi). However, the company has announced a special inaugural price of Rs 2,23,000 for the first 10,000 customers. The Scrambler 400x will be available in showrooms by October and its price will be declared closer to its start of sales. Customers can book online at www.triumphmotorcyclesindia.com/booking and reserve their Triumph by paying a refundable token advance of Rs.2000. Customers living in cities where the dealerships are yet to open can register interest and the Triumph contact centre will keep them posted on availability.

With ergonomics designed for optimum comfort and control, the Speed 400 and Scrambler 400 X benefit from a slim waistline which combines with an accessible seat height of 790mm and 835mm respectively. Both models benefit from their own model-specific chassis set-up, with a new frame, bolt-on rear subframe and cast-aluminium swingarm paired with suspension set-ups tailored to each use case, both delivering Triumph’s famously easy, agile and dynamic handling.
The Speed 400 features large 43mm big-piston upside-down front forks, a mono-shock Rear Suspension Unit with external reservoir, lightweight 17-inch wheels and roadster-specific geometry and wheelbase. The features provide an engaging and intuitive ride along with a comfortable, neutral riding position that inspires confidence for riders of all sizes and skill levels. Powerful four-piston radial front brakes with a 300mm front disc and braided lines give a responsive brake feel for improved rider confidence.
The Scrambler 400 X features a longer wheelbase, longer travel suspension, larger 19-inch front wheel and wide handlebars for greater stability and control when riding on loose surfaces, as well as providing a more upright and commanding Scrambler riding position. A larger cast steel brake pedal and high-grip foot pegs that are positioned lower and wider also make for a more natural standing riding position when riding off-road, while a larger 320mm front brake disc and optimised pad compound deliver reassuringly progressive braking performance in all conditions.

Bosch engine management with ride-by-wire throttle delivers a linear and intuitive throttle response with predictable power delivery for enhanced rideability, safety and control. The traction control system on both models is switchable with a simple on or off selection, so the rider can quickly and easily deactivate the intervention. Bosch dual-channel ABS delivers assured braking in all conditions for added safety and peace of mind and on the Scrambler 400 X can also be deactivated for enhanced control when riding off-road.
The clean and contemporary dual-format instruments feature a large analogue speedometer and integrated LCD screen which includes a digital tachometer, a fuel range remaining and a prominent gear indicator, clearly visible in all lighting conditions. All this functionality is accessed via an intuitive easy to use handlebar-mounted scroll button, and the display is even pre-enabled to show the status of accessory fitted heated grips, if fitted. A conveniently located USB-C charging socket allows on-the-move charging of handlebar mounted devices, such as smartphones and navigation systems.
This ingenious system reduces clutch lever effort to reduce fatigue during stop/start riding, as well as improving rider confidence and peace of mind by preventing rear wheel locking during downshifts.
Designed for performance and presence, the powerful headlight features a distinctive daytime running light with Triumph DRL signature, while the tail-light also includes a modern light signature together with moulded light guides and Triumph branding. Slim, contemporary indicators complete the package.
Both the Speed 400 and the Scrambler 400 X come equipped with a steering lock and an anti-theft immobiliser as standard. The transponder chip integrated into the ignition key ensures only the owner can start the engine.
