TRIUMPH will highlight the release of their 2021 Scrambler 1200 range with a special edition model celebrating Hollywood actor Steve McQueen, one of the most iconic movie stars in history. It will be limited to just 1000 motorbikes worldwide.
Based on the 1200 XE Scrambler, the premium and exclusive Steve McQueen Edition brings all the category-dominating specifications, go-anywhere adventure-bike capability and state-of-the-art technology.
It will sport it’s own premium paint scheme and extensive list of unique details. Fully equipped with a selection of premium Scrambler accessories fitted as standard, the McQueen Edition is now officially the highest specification Scrambler 1200 ever.
Inspired by the original competition-spec Triumph TR6, made famous by the legendary barbed wire jump in the iconic 1963 Second World War classic The Great Escape, the special edition has been developed in partnership with the McQueen family.
Each bike will be individually numbered on a beautiful billet-machined handlebar clamp, which also features a laser etched Steve McQueen signature. For even greater exclusivity, each example comes with a unique certificate of authenticity.
The certificate contains the bike’s VIN number, and carries the signatures of Triumph’s CEO, Nick Bloor, and Chad McQueen, son of the legend himself, Steve McQueen.
The unique paint scheme features a Competition Green tank with brushed foil knee pads, exquisite hand-painted gold lining, gold heritage Triumph logos, dedicated Steve McQueen tank graphic, brushed aluminium Monza cap and brushed stainless steel tank strap.
The distinctive Steve McQueen Edition will also feature the aluminium high level front mudguard as standard, which, along with the rear mudguard, will also be painted in Competition Green.
In addition to the standard 1200 XE’s class leading specification, the Steve McQueen Edition comes fitted with engine protection dresser bars, which add another layer of ruggedness.
Fabricated from stainless steel tubing, these have an electro-polished finish and offer additional protection to the clutch and alternator covers. A laser cut and pressed aluminium radiator guard, with laser etched Triumph branding, also comes as standard.
The Steve McQueen Edition also features a premium brown bench seat, with stitched ribbing and Triumph branding, which further enhances the overall classic style and elegance.
Aside from movie stardom, Steve McQueen was renowned for his Triumph Scrambler desert racing, which makes the Scrambler 1200 XE the perfect base for the exclusive edition. It shares all of the acclaimed XE specs and performance.
These include the latest 1200 engine and exhaust system updates. And being a genuine cross-over motorcycle, it has all the capability of a full-on adventure bike, with the iconic style inherited from its legendary Scrambler lineage.
The new Scrambler 1200 Steve McQueen Edition is also pre-enabled for My Triumph connectivity. This allows the rider to access phone calls, operate music, use turn-by-turn navigation and manage a Go-Pro through intuitive handlebar controls and TFT interface.
