Triumph has entered yet another section of the market with the release of its Speed 400 and Scrambler 400 X, the first to come from the brand’s Indian production facilities debuting an all-new 398cc single-cylinder platform. In this video, we ride them both. Lock and load.

Triumph Speed 400 and Scrambler 400 X pricing and specs

Triumph has this month released its new single-cylinder Speed 400 and Scrambler 400 X models in Australia, priced rideaway from $8990 and $9990, respectively.

The Triumph Speed 400 is arguably best positioned to compete with Royal Enfield’s Hunter 350 ($7590), while the Scrambler 400 X should take on the Indian brand’s Scram 411 ($7990), among other small-capacity retro-themed models.

The Triumph Speed 400 and Scrambler 400 X are the first learner-approved models in the brand’s Modern Classics line-up, joining the larger-capacity Speed Twin and Scrambler models which are available in both 900- and 1200-class capacities.

This new platform, which is underpinned by by a 398cc single-cylinder engine generating 29.4kW and 37.5Nm, may spawn future models under Triumph’s Modern Classics umbrella.

The Speed 400 takes on styling consistent with its larger Speed Twin siblings, though it is particularly approachable for LAMS riders with a seat height of 790mm and a weight of 170 kilograms.

The bike rides on 43mm upside down forks and 17-inch cast wheels. The braking package consists of a four-piston caliper and a 300mm disc at the front end.

Meanwhile, the Scrambler 400 X is taller with an 835mm seat height and 179kg weight, and features longer-travel suspension, a 19-inch front wheel, wider handlebars and an upright seating position suitable for off-road riding. The Scrambler 400 X also benefits from a 320mm front brake disc.

Notably, both the Speed 400 and Scrambler 400 X feature a ride-by-wire throttle and traction control as standard, while an LCD dash, an imobiliser and LED lighting round out the tech features.
