On top of this Triumph also announced today that the Triumph Scrambler 1200 XE will be raced at this years Baja 1000 Rally ridden by stuntman, off-road, and desert racer Ernie Vigil.

The Scrambler 1200 XE race bike is mostly stock except for the fitment of crash bars, an extended sump guard and race-spec lighting, with the indicators and pillion pegs removed.

Ernie Vigil has never raced in the Baja 1000 but he is familiar with the course, having competed in the Mexican 1000 on a Triumph Tiger 800.

So the Triumph Scrambler 1200 finished the Baja 1000, in an incredible 5th place!
