The Triumph Scrambler 400 X is the newest entrant in the scrambler segment In India
The new Scrambler 400 X is the newest addition to the Triumph family after the Speed 400 which it’s based upon. The scrambler has been launched carrying a sticker price of Rs 2.63 lakh (ex-showroom) and is offered in three colour shades. While adventure motorcycles have gained a lot of popularity in recent times, scramblers too are gaining momentum in the Indian two-wheeler market. Following are the other options to consider in the similar price bracket if you have been eyeing the new Triumph Scrambler 400 X.
KTM 390 Adventure X: Rs 2.27 lakh
First on the list is the 290 Adventure X. This variant is the most affordable version of KTM’s flagship adventure-focused motorcycle in the Indian market. The motorcycle packs more power and is more capable than the Scrambler 400 X on the off-road front. The motorcycle is good for touring and comes equipped with premium cycle parts. Powering the motorcycle is a 373 cc single-pot liquid-cooled motor that is capable of pumping out 43 bhp and 37 Nm and comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox.
BMW G 310 GS: Rs 3.30 lakh
Next on the list is yet another adventure motorcycle, the BMW G 310 GS. The objective is similar to what Triumph is trying to achieve with the Scrambler 400 X. Offering the legacy of the GS in the smallest package, the G 310 GS is a lightweight and capable off-roading and touring motorcycle. It has long travel suspension, premium cycle parts, high brand recall, and well-sorted riding dynamics. It has one of the best suspension setups in the segment that offers a sweet balance between sportiness around corners and comfort over bad roads. The bike is powered by a 313 cc reverse-inclined motor that registers 33.5 bhp and 28 Nm and comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox.
