British bike manufacturer Triumph Motorcycles has launched the Scrambler 1200 XC in the Indian market at Rs 10.73 lakh (ex-showroom India). It is priced competitively, considering the kit on offer. Even though its closest rival, the Ducati Desert Sled is Rs 80,000 cheaper in comparison, it gets a much smaller engine.

We recently rode the motorcycle in Shimla and were pretty impressed by it. For more details, head here for our first ride review - Triumph Scrambler 1200 XC: First Ride Review

True to its off-road credentials, the 1200 XC gets an aluminium cradle section in the Thruxton-derived double-downtube chassis, with fully adjustable long-travel Showa USD forks and twin Ohlins shocks. Braking hardware consists of 320mm twin disc at the front and a 255mm single disc at the rear. The motorcycle comes equipped with large 21-inch front and 17-inch rear spoked wheels, shod with dual-purpose Metzeler Tourance tubeless tyres.

You also get five different riding modes here as standard, along with switchable traction control and dual-channel ABS. Full-LED lights and a TFT colour instrument cluster with a 5-way joystick on the switchgear are also on offer.

Powering the motorcycle is the Thruxton-derived 1200cc High Power parallel-twin engine, which churns out 90PS of power and 110Nm of torque. The motor comes paired with a 6-speed transmission, with a slip-assist clutch.
