EXCLUSIVE: Triumph Speed 400 and Scrambler 400 X to be priced around P300k

Triumph Motorcycles has introduced its smallest and most affordable bikes in June – the Speed 400 and Scrambler 400 X. Essentially the same bikes but specced differently for their respective segments, these two modern classics were developed with India’s Bajaj, hence, it will be sold first in the country with waiting times spanning up to months.

As it turns out, we only have to wait a few more months before the bikes arrive locally. And most importantly, we now have a ballpark figure for their prices.

According to Triumph Motorcycles Philippines, these two entry-level models are to be priced around P300,000, which, considering the 400cc segment, is pretty competitive.

Fellow European brand KTM and its 390 Duke, as well as its sister company Husqvarna and the Svartpilen/Vitpilen 401s, sell their bikes at the front-end of the P300k mark.

If Triumph PH will sell their 400s below P350k, then we’re bound to see a tightly competed segment once they arrive. But what will you get with Triumph’s 400cc entry-level bikes?

Thankfully, Triumph PH’s customer-facing website is already updated with the spec sheet of both the Speed 400 and Scrambler 400 X. Here’s a rundown:
