Triumph Motorcycles has launched the Triumph Scrambler 1200 Steve McQueen edition in the Indian market. The new-generation 2021 Scrambler 1200 XE underpins the Scrambler 1200 Steve McQueen edition. Triumph will sell the new limited-edition motorcycle in a limited production run of just 1000 units worldwide. While Triumph will make only 1000 examples worldwide, the brand did not mention how many units will arrive in India. However, we believe the number will be pretty exclusive.
What’s so special in the Scrambler 1200 Steve McQueen Edition?
The special-edition motorcycle was born from Triumph’s Scrambler bloodline. Aside from stardom, Steve McQueen was also known for desert racing. Racers Bud Ekins and Steve McQueen were racing the Triumph Scramblers in multiple competitions such as the Mexican 1000 and the Spanish Bassella. The 2021 Triumph Scrambler 120 XE has been fitted with Unique Steve McQueen branding on the tank and handlebar clamp to justify the edition named after the ‘King of Cool’.
Furthermore, each unit will come with a certificate of authenticity, signed by Triumph’s CEO, Nick Bloor. Plus, the certification also bears the signatures of the son of the legend himself, Chad McQueen. This makes the Steve McQueen edition not only cool but ultra-exclusive and pays homage to the most famous movie star of all times.
