Rode the Triumph Speed 400 & Scrambler: Thoughts as a Yamaha R3 owner

The Speed feels a lot smoother and refined compared to the Scrambler.

BHPian vinbex recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

Got a chance to ride both the speed and the scrambler and must admit, its well put together. Looks amazing in person with top notch fit and finish. Really good exhaust note. Rode the speed and scrambler back to back and following are my observation:

  • The Speed feels a lot smoother and refined compared to the Scrambler.
  • The riding position the of the Ccrambler needs a bit getting used to.
  • Noticed heating from right side on my inner calf/ankle. Was riding during noon and there was traffic.
  • The engine refinement if excellent. At 80-90kmph in 4th gear, it felt rock solid and vibe free
  • The power delivery is also very smooth and not jerky(unlike the RTR310)
  • Seat felt a bit hard
  • The console was not readable at noon as sun was directly overhead and creating glare.
  • At 3.07 lakhs on road, I feel its a great bike to have as a second option.
  • I went with the intention of getting the Scrambler, but liked the Speed more.

My R3 still takes the cake! Completely my point of view.
