James Bond movie no 25, No Time To Die will feature a special Triumph Scrambler 1200
James Bond movie franchise and its association with British automotive brands is a longstanding tradition. It is something auto enthusiasts eagerly anticipate when every Bond movie inches closer to its release date. The 25th James Bond movie, No Time to Die, was originally supposed to be released worldwide in April but it has been postponed due to the pandemic.
As the fans wait for Daniel Craig to do his thing on the big screen, Triumph Motorcycle has announced a special edition Scrambler 1200 to celebrate its collaboration with the popular movie franchise. The Triumph Scrambler 1200 Bond Edition is limited to just 250 units worldwide, and as the name suggests, is inspired by the custom Scrambler 1200 motorcycles featured in No Time to Die’s action sequences.
Based on the top-end Scrambler 1200 XE, the Bond Edition features ‘premium 007 bodywork’, complete with exhaust number board, lower side panel finisher (with 007 badge), leather seat with embroidered logo and an interesting Bond instrument startup TFT screen. The Sapphire black paint scheme has been derived from the Scrambler ridden by James Bond in the upcoming movie.
Other visual differentiators of the Triumph Scrambler 1200 Bond Edition include front and rear mudguards, sump guard and grab rail with anodized black finish, black forks, engine badges with gold accents, swing arm and sprocket cover with black powder coat, etc. The special edition scrambler also receives fog lights, Arrow silencer with carbon fiber end caps, machined front brake reservoir, black rear wheel adjusters and stainless steel headlight grill.
Each of the 250 units will carry a numbered plaque and will be accompanied by special Bond handover pack which will include a leather rucksack, Bond branded bike cover and a numbered letter hand-signed by the brand’s CEO Nick Bloor. Bookings for the special edition are open across the world from today. Prices have not been revealed yet but expect a considerable premium over the Scrambler 1200 XE.
The Scrambler 1200 is powered by a 1,200 cc parallel-twin liquid-cooled engine which produces 89 hp and 110 Nm of torque. The engine is paired with a 6-speed gearbox. Salient features include Showa inverted telescopic forks, Ohlins rear monoshock, Brembo braking system with dual-channel ABS, LED headlamp, 6 riding modes, Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) supported cornering ABS and Traction Control, keyless ignition, heated grips, cruise control, USB charger and smartphone connectivity.
The ultra-rare special edition would be delivered to the customers later this year. If you fancy owning one, you better to hurry up.
