We've been expecting you: Triumph release Scrambler 1200 Bond Edition
Triumph have unveiled the Scrambler 1200 Bond Edition – a limited run of their Scrambler 1200 XE, with a few added touches that make it a bike fit for a secret agent. The bike is inspired by the 25th Bond movie, No Time To Die, which is due for release later this year.
The film features James Bond and some baddies duelling on two wheels, and we all know bikes are more fun than Aston Martins, so Triumph have made this bike to let you have a bit of Bond in your garage.
Underneath, the Bond edition is a standard Scrambler 1200 XE, which means it’s powered by the 1200cc water-cooled Bonneville twin, with a Scrambler tune. That means 87bhp and 81.1lb.ft – more than enough to both to be shaken and stirred.

It’s also got the same off-road focus as the standard machine, including 21/17in wheels, long travel suspension and fancy electronics, including a funky TFT dash with a Bond start-up screen. But where it gets really special is the finish.
Pretty much everything is blacked out, including the mudguards, forks, swingarm, sump guard and grab rail. The engine too has been darkened but it’s also highlighted with some gold accents – presumably pinched from the leftovers of Auric Goldfinger.
As well as that it’s loaded with special accessories including fog lights with unique black shrouds, a stainless headlight grill, machined front brake reservoir and an Arrow exhaust with carbon end caps. Then there’s the 007 touches.
The 007 logo appears twice, both on the exhaust number board and on the opposing side panel, while the seat has the logo embroidered on the rear. Each bike is numbered on the triple tree and all the bikes come with a handover pack signed by Triumph boss Nick Bloor.
The only catch is that Triumph are making just 250 available worldwide with a whopping £18,500. Before you ask – 007 has already gone, Triumph are keeping that one for themselves.
