Triumph’s 2024 Scrambler 1200 lineup has been revealed, with the NEW and more accessible 1200 X for the road and beyond, PLUS an updated 1200 XE for the tar, for adventure touring and extreme off-road fun.
Featuring Triumph’s high-power 1200cc Bonneville engine with torque-rich performance, off-road ready 21-inch front wheel and Triumph’s premium quality and finish, the two new models look set to raise the bar even higher for performance and style.
The new Scrambler 1200 X delivers the same exceptional core capability, commanding riding position, and torque-rich performance Scrambler customers love, combined with a generous specification of equipment and technology. Built to be more accessible, the Scrambler 1200 X has a seat height of 820mm, reducing to 795mm with the accessory low seat, a dedicated feature that offers exceptional functionality at a more competitive price and a 16,000km service interval to lower the cost of ownership.
The cool and capable Scrambler 1200 XE also hits the road in the new year sporting updates including latest-generation Brembo Stylema® calipers, new suspension with enhanced adjustability, enhanced styling details and improved touring capability.
Triumph Motorcycles has released a brand-new enhancement to its advanced Showa semi-active suspension across the all-new Tiger 1200 range, which was first launched in November 2021. Active Preload Reduction has been developed to reduce the rear suspension preload as the bike slows, allowing the seat heights to be reduced.
For the road focussed GT Pro and GT Explorer, there are currently two seat height settings – 850mm and 870mm, while for the all-terrain Rally Pro and Rally Explorer these are 875mm and 895mm respectively. Through the accessory-fit low-seat option, riders are already able to lower the seat position by an additional 20mm, giving a lowest seat height of 830mm on the GT family and 855mm on the Rally family. The new feature allows these seat heights to be reduced further.
Depending on the combined weight of the rider, pillion and luggage, Active Preload Reduction could lower the riding height by up to 20mm when the motorcycle comes to a standstill. New customers will be able to access this new minimum preload feature by simply pressing the ‘Home’ button on the switch cube for one second, while The new update will be available to existing Tiger 1200 customers at City Coast Motorcycles during their next service.
“This new feature can be enabled on the fly, lowering the centre of gravity at slower speeds, making it even more accessible, thus offering riders more confidence at slow speeds and better contact with the ground as they come to stop,” Triumph Motorcycles Chief Product Officer Steve Sargent said.
The all-new Tiger 1200 was designed to be the world’s most capable, agile and manoeuvrable large-capacity adventure motorcycle. The Tiger 1200 GT Explorer, with its 30-litre fuel capacity, was even the bike of choice for Enduro World Champion Ivan Cervantes when he broke the record for riding the furthest in 24 hours on a motorcycle.
Trail bike access to popular NSW areas such as the Watagans and Newnes State Forest is under threat.
The National Parks and Wildlife Service – who manages many key riding areas such as Newnes Plateau and Cullen Bullen State Forest – is planning to close access to singletrack trails for motorcycles in only a few months.
The current plan is for 4WDs to have dedicated trails that can be shared, but single track will be off limits.
Clearly this will negatively impact the enjoyment of recreational trail riders, especially those located in Sydney and surrounds. What can we do about this? In the first instance, we all need to sign the petition addressed to the Minister for the Environment.
The petition asks that funding is provided for a strategic plan for motorcycle trail and adventure riding – something that NPWS needs to consider if it is to allow singletack access to motorcycles. The petition also asks for the singletrack access decision to be overturned and that the Minister of Transport introduces a recreational registration system similar to the one used in VIC to enable better compliance with legal requirements.
Please consider signing the petition at the link below before 26 August 2022 and ask your mates to do the same:
It is a well-kept secret that anyone involved in an accident and not at fault is entitled to a replacement like-for-like vehicle at no cost them. City Coast Motorcycles’ Service Centre has you covered thanks to Your Right To Ride. This motorcycle-only fleet offers accident replacement motorcycles to not at fault parties.
“We’re seeing a major increase in people choosing to ride over drive or catch public transport so it’s important to know our rights and feel supported while out on the roads – or in the parking lot,” says Customer Relations Manager Renee Sofi.
The concept of Your Right to Ride is to take the weight off not at fault riders with a simple step-by-step process. Like-for-like replacement vehicles are delivered to a customer’s preferred address and theirs for the duration of repairs at City Coast Motorcycles or until a settlement payout is received. What’s more there are not any km restrictions.
Percy Peacock described the process as straight-forward and stress-free:
“Great service. Had no transport after being hit by a car and my scooter named Bruce was written off. I was provided with a reliable scooter while I was waiting for the at fault driver to pay the insurance company. Huge reduction in stress following a traumatic incident! Very happy to recommend YRTR to everyone needing a motorbike or scooter following an incident or when it’s being fixed,” said Percy.
The Your Right To Ride fleet includes a wide variety of two-wheeled road vehicles to enable the like-for-like concept, from Vespas through to learner-legal Hondas to the Triumph Bonneville to the Ducati Monster.
Should the unthinkable happen, be sure to make note of the personal details and insurance claim number of the at fault party then simply go to yourrighttoride.com.au and complete the form. Claims are usually approved within 24 hours.
Rarely is there an opportunity to hand over a beautiful and unique motorcycle, such as the Thruxton TFC. The highly touted Bonneville has been limited to a production run of just 750, with only 39 to arrive on Australian soil. One-of-a-kind premium badging includes a numbered edition plaque that makes each bike unique. As well as all the focused sporty attitude of the legendary café racer, this incredible TFC model celebrates the best of British engineering, detailing and finish with this ultra-rare never-to-be-repeated version that delivers more on every dimension.
Customer Brad took delivery of his new Triumph Thruxton TFC and couldn’t be happier:
“It’s really exciting. I think it’s just got such a different lot of specs and additions to the bike than the standard Thruxton R and it’s really nice to own something that ‘s a little bit special – that’s limited edition and that not too many people in the country have. I am looking forward to keeping it for a long time,” he said.
Brad is already a Triumph convert, having owned one previously and visited the Triumph Factory Experience in Hinckley:
“I’ve been living overseas for four years so I haven’t had a bike since being away. The agreement with coming back to Australia was to get a nice new Triumph. My previous bike was a 675 Triumph Daytona. The lovely lady of the house gave me permission to upgrade to this lovely new TFC.
“For me, it’s just something special, especially the limited range that they’ve got. I’ve always been into the café racer-styled bikes, I’ve just never had the privilege of owning one, so it was time to switch from a road bike to something a bit more classic. The Daytona was the love of my life for quite a few years,” he said.
City Coast Motorcycles Dealer Principal Tim believes Brad has made the perfect choice:
“It was an honour to hand over the Thruxton TFC to Brad. We both stood there in awe after the unveiling! It’s great to give the keys to someone who appreciates such a work of art,” Tim said.
Brad’s now eager #fortheride on his exceptional new Triumph and plans to give it a work out north and south of Sydney:
“I enjoy heading up north to the central coast and up some of the back roads there on the way from home. I like to head down around the Royal National Park and back through the ocean roads,” said Brad.

1959 marked the beginning of a cultural explosion and the birth of a new attitude to live life to the full; an attitude that inspired a revolution in music, art, and culture, from rock ’n’ roll to Andy Warhol. This hard-won freedom of expression created the world we live in today and still shapes the culture that surrounds us.
The original, iconic ’59 Triumph Bonneville encapsulated this spirit and passion for life, and inspired legions of riders, from movie stars to teenage café racers, and a whole motorcycle movement.
It’s a spirit that lives on in every Triumph Modern Classic…
For the chance to WIN one of these iconic Modern Classic bikes, all you need to do is complete a Modern Classic test ride at City Coast Motorcycles between October 1 and December 15, 2018.
