Triumph Scrambler 1200 Steve McQueen Edition
The limited edition Triumph Scrambler 1200 Steve McQueen Edition is based on the most extreme model, the Scrambler 1200 XE, but adds its own Steve McQueen premium paint scheme and extensive list of beautiful exclusive details.
Fully equipped with a selection of premium Scrambler accessories as standard, the McQueen Edition is now officially the highest specification Scrambler 1200 of all time.
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 Scrambler 1200 Steve McQueen Edition has been developed in partnership with the McQueen family.
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 aluminum Monza cap and brushed stainless steel tank strap.
The distinctive Steve McQueen Edition will also feature the aluminum 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.
