Triumph has taken the wraps off the Speed 400 and the Scrambler 400 X, scheduled to go on sale in January 2024 in all major markets across the globe. As the name suggests, these two new Modern Classics are powered by a 400 cc engine.
As mentioned, both motorcycles slot under the company’s Modern Classics category with retro-modern styling, but obviously, the Scrambler scrambles it up a bit for all-road looks with split seating (835 mm seat height vs 790 mm), taller tyres, a different silencer design, a more sculpted fuel tank, a longer mudguard, and protection for headlight, handles and sump. Both models feature all-LED lighting and an analog instrument cluster with an integrated LCD display.
Suspension setup on both models is 43 mm upside-down forks at the front and a pre-load adjustable rear monoshock. The Speed 400 gets a 300 mm disc at the front, while the Scrambler 400 X boasts a 320 mm one. Bosch dual-channel ABS comes standard on both (switchable on Scrambler 400 X for off-road use), as does the switchable traction control. A steering lock and an anti-theft immobilizer also come standard.
Powering both motorcycles is a liquid-cooled 398 cc single-cylinder engine, which is claimed to be all-new. Output figures on both models are 29.4 kW (40 metric hp) at 8,000 rpm and 37.5 Nm (27.6 lb-ft) at 6,500 rpm. The engine is hooked-up with a 6-speed gearbox featuring a torque-assist clutch.
