Triumph has released details of its updated 2021 Scrambler range, which sees the debut of a new Steve McQueen Edition to sit above the full-time XE and XC variants.

The individually numbered McQueen bike will be limited to 1000 units worldwide. It gets Steve McQueen branding on the tank and handlebar clamp, a ‘Competition Green’ custom paint scheme, and a certificate of authenticity with signatures of Triumph’s CEO, Nick Bloor and McQueen’s son, Chad McQueen.

There’s also a grab-bag of Triumph Scrambler accessories fitted to the bike as standard fare.

Pricing has yet to be announced, however, the outgoing Scrambler 1200 is priced from $22,500 rideaway for the base XC.

The new Triumph Scrambler 1200 XC and XE now meets Euro5 standards, with a familiar 1200cc parallel-twin engine generating 66kW and 110Nm.

The update also brings a revised exhaust system that is claimed to deliver improved heat distribution.

Both models feature full-colour TFT instruments offering two different design themes, each with three display layout options.

Standard on both of the 2021 Scrambler 1200 variants is torque-assist clutch, cruise control, keyless ignition, under-seat US charging socket and the internal wiring ready to plug in the accessory fit heated grips should you option them.

The new Scrambler 1200 is also pre-enabled for the accessory-fit My Triumph connectivity system. This allows the rider to access phone calls, operate music, use turn-by-turn navigation and manage a GoPro through handlebar controls and the TFT interface.

There’s ride-by-wire enabling the five riding modes on offer (the harder-core XE gets a sixth in ‘Off-Road Pro’ to allow more slide action).

The Scrambler 1200 XE gets hand guards, Brembo MCS levers, gold forks and an aluminium, long travel swingarm, which is longer on the XE, and a shot blasted and anodised finish.

Also standard on the XE are optimised cornering ABS and optimised cornering traction control, and there’s 70 genuine Triumph accessories for those looking to up-spec.

The new 2021 Scrambler 1200 XC and XE are available in three colours: Cobalt Blue with a Jet Black stripe, Matt Khaki Green with a Jet Black stripe or the single tone Sapphire Black option.

In 2019, Isle of Man TT legend Guy Martin used a Triumph Scrambler 1200 to recreate the famous jump from the Steve McQueen film The Great Escape.
