In mid summer Harry had the chance to try out the Triumph Scrambler 1200 XE. Triumph claim the bike is the real deal and can handle off road terrain usually reserved for rally bikes, adventure bikes and enduro bikes. Harry took the bike round a small section of the enduro track at Desert Rose’s East Sussex venue. He was pleasantly surprised.
The bike, while somewhat heavier than the bikes Harry might race round this track, gave a good account of itself. With all the rider modes switched off he was able to get a feel for how capable the bike is. So, take note, this bike is not just for heading to Shoreditch for a latte and a pain au chocolat.
