New Triumph Scrambler 400X teased; launch soon
Triumph has teased the new Scrambler 400X ahead of its imminent India launch. The bike maker has already enjoyed a fair amount of success with its entry into the affordable and mass market segment, thanks to lucrative cost of the Speed 400. In fact, the streetfighter managed to receive over 10,000 bookings within just 10 days of bookings commencement, which was announced on 30 June, 2023. More to the point, Triumph is expected to carry forward the success story of the Speed 400 with the upcoming Scambler 400X. Here is everything you should know about the motorcycle.
