Triumph Honors Steve McQueen With A Limited-Edition Scrambler 1200 Moto

Steve McQueen’s immense love for motorcycles was well-known and well-documented, with the “King of Cool” reportedly owning a stable of over 200 two-wheeled specimens. Despite the enormity of his collection, the actor and motorsport icon always had a particular affinity towards Triumphs, being McQueen’s marque of choice for his personal desert racers, as well as being the brand utilized for the famous jump scene in The Great Escape. And after previously unveiling a McQueen Edition Bonneville almost a decade ago, Triumph has opted to celebrate its ties to the Hollywood legend with a limited edition Scrambler 1200.

The Scrambler 1200 Steve McQueen Edition is based on the existing top-of-the-line XE-spec, and as such comes with its 47mm USD Showa fork, Ohlins mono-shock, Brembo brakes, TFT display, and 90hp liquid-cooled 1,200cc parallel twin. Differentiating the McQueen-spec is a unique competition green livery — a nod to the paint job on the TR6 seen in The Great Escape — with color-matched fenders and a tank decorated with hand-painted gold pin-striping, brushed knee pads, 1960s era Triumph logos, and a special commemorative tank graphic. Other elements exclusive to the McQueen-spec include a retro-style brown leather saddle, a billet top triple with a laser-etched McQueen signature and serial number, a radiator guard, and crash bars, all as standard. Limited to 1,000 units worldwide, the 2021 Triumph Scrambler 1200 Steve McQueen Edition is available now with pricing set at $16,400 — only $1,000 over the Scrambler 1200 XE.

Purchase: $16,400
