Triumph launches Steve McQueen and Sandstorm edition Scramblers in India
Triumph Motorcycles has launched two limited-edition bikes in India, namely the Scrambler 1200 Steve McQueen and Street Scrambler 900 Sandstorm. Paying homage to the 'King of Cool' Steve McQueen, who rode the Triumph TR6 motorcycle himself, the new Scrambler 1200 is limited to just 1,000 units worldwide. The Street Scrambler 900 Sandstorm edition, on the other hand, is limited to 775 units globally.
The special Scrambler 1200 bears McQueen's signature
The Triumph Scrambler 1200 Steve McQueen edition has an eye-catching look with a new Competition Green and Gold color palette and a Steve McQueen graphic etched on the fuel tank. Each of the limited 1,000 bikes is individually numbered and features a laser etched Steve McQueen signature. It also offers a brown bench seat, an engine guard, golden front forks, and Monza fuel-filler cap.
It is equipped with a 6-speed gearbox
The Triumph Scrambler 1200 Steve McQueen Edition is powered by a BS6-compliant 1,200cc, parallel-twin, liquid-cooled engine paired to a 6-speed gearbox. The mill generates a maximum power of 88hp at 7,250rpm and a peak torque of 110Nm at 4,500rpm.
