Trailers for the latest James Bond film No Time to Die released in late 2019 teased Britain’s most famous double agent involved in a chase scene while riding a Triumph Scrambler 1200. Triumph announced today that they have established an official partnership with the franchise and EON Productions for the 25th James Bond film, which will include an appearance of the new Tiger 900. It agreement also involves a limited production Bond Edition Scrambler 1200.
Originally scheduled to arrive in theatres last month but delayed until November due to COVID-19, the motorcycle will be released regardless. Based on the top-spec Scrambler 1200 XE, the special model gets unique badging and Bond Edition embroidery on the leather seat, along with a 007-branded exhaust plate and covers. It also gets a stainless-steel headlight grill and special TFT display screen that features a Bond “shutter” startup screen.
The black paint is complimented by the murdered-out motor, anodized mudguards and grab rail, sump guard, swingarm, sprocket cover and rear wheel adjusters. An added Arrow muffler also gets treated to carbon fibre tips. The Bond Edition makes use of the Scrambler’s 1,200cc parallel-twin that makes 89 hp and 81 lb-ft of torque. The special edition will be limited to a run of only 250 units available for order now.
The Scrambler 1200 XE starts at $16,300,but the Bond Edition commands an MSRP of $20,000. The $3,700 premium didn’t deter interest as all five models earmarked for Canada are already spoken for.
I’d consider the $3,700 up-tic, only if Q designed and installed more useful “Bond” mods.
Does anyone really need a 1200cc scrambler with 10 inches of suspension travel?
Of course they do! It’s just silly, but cool. I’d love to try one, ideally with some knobbies, off road.
