World news – Triumph’s new King of Cool: Steve McQueen Edition Scrambler 1200 was introduced along with updates


Triumph has released a limited edition Steve McQueen Scrambler 1200 model while also updating its retro scramblers to meet the latest emissions standards.

What are the changes? Just minor … minor updates to make the engine Euro5 compliant, plus a new exhaust that improves heat dissipation. So if you’ve just bought a 2020 model, there is no need to look for the receipt. The big news is saved for fans of the King of Cool himself.

To celebrate one of Hollywood’s most famous actors, stunt drivers, motorcyclists and all-round icons, Triumph and the McQueen family produced the Scrambler 1200 « Steve McQueen Edition » .

The new bike is inspired by the original TR6 competition spec, made famous when McQueen used a modified version in The Great Escape. McQueen was a huge fan of the TR6, asking to be used in the film and taking one in the six-day international test. It is his love for British twins that Triumph celebrates with this bike.

As the name suggests, the McQueen edition is based on the Scrambler 1200 XE – the off-road version of the two 1200 models with long travel.

The special edition contains a Competition Green tank with knee pads made of brushed foil, hand-painted golden pinstripes, golden Heritage logos, a tank cap made of brushed aluminum, a tank strap made of brushed stainless steel and a cute little Steve McQueen graphic.

The McQueen Edition also comes with a high-quality fender that, like the rear fender, has been painted to match the tank. There are a few other optional accessories as well, including engine rods, radiator guards, and a brown seat bench.

No special edition is complete without evidence. Therefore, each of the 1000 motorcycles is numbered on the handlebar clamp, which also features McQueen’s signature laser.

Each bike also comes with a certificate of authenticity that includes the bike’s chassis number and is issued by Triumph CEO Nick Bloor and McQueen’s son Chad is signed. The Steve McQueen Edition will cost £ 13,600 when it hits dealerships in June, along with the standard 1200 XE and XC, which will both increase by £ 300 to £ 12,600 and £ 11,800 respectively.
