Spy photo’s have emerged online of riders testing was appears to be a 1200cc scrambler with tall enough suspension to give true off road performance.
21 inch front wheel, Ohlins twin rear shocks, bash plate, big brake discs with monobloc calipers as usually seen on top end sports bikes, and hand guards all point to serious off road cred.
Close up photo’s have also shown BMW GS style spokes that mount to the outside of the rim edge allowing the spoked rim to be tubeless.

Yeah I agree. Went for a camp at Ocean Beach a few days ago. There was a slip over the road, after the camp towards Wainui.
Flicked over the slip on my DR650. I would not have even tried it on my brothers scrambler 900, let alone
a 1200. Why do they pretend a scrambler is an off road bike? We’ll have to wait and see. A 600 would be really nice.August 10, 2018 at 9:51 am #27347
It’s been 18 months since we first posted about this but Triumph have now announced that the Scrambler 1200 will be released on October 24th this year.

The Scrambler 1200 marks the birth of a stunning new motorcycle generation. With never-before-seen levels of dual-purpose capability, this incredible full-on scrambler is as truly amazing off-road as it is on the road, doing everything an adventure bike can, and all with authentic scrambler style and attitude.
Because of the unprecedented worldwide interest in this next generation motorcycle, we’ve decided to release a series of exclusive insights into this genuine game-changer well in advance of its official launch.September 7, 2018 at 5:16 pm #27548
