Triumph didn’t make any EICMA headlines with its Speed 400 and Scrambler 400 X, so consider this a “coming out” party of sorts. That said, have another close look at these new entry-level Triumphs, available in North America come January 2024. Triumph has embraced its mid-century thumper heritage with respectable power-to-weight ratios and low MSRP. You might be seeing lots of these at your local bike night soon.

Developed in partnership with Indian motorcycle maker Bajaj, both 400s have been available for order in India since late June of this year, with MSRPs finally announced for Europe, Canada, and the US in early October. The 2024 Triumph Speed 400 clocks in at $4,995, while the 2024 Triumph 400 Scrambler X arrives at $5,595 MSRP.

An all-new fuel-injected and liquid-cooled 398cc single-cylinder engine is the big news in both bikes. Developing a claimed class-leading 39.5 hp and 27.7 lb.-ft. of peak torque, they’re both designed to be the gateway drug to a lifelong addiction to motorcycling and the disposable income it requires.

First off, the Speed 400 gets a 43mm inverted fork with a traditional shock, on lightweight 17-inch wheels. Four-piston radial front brakes with a 300mm front disc keep things in check. Rider geometry is appropriately upright, along with an egalitarian seat height of 31 inches and compact 54.2-inch wheelbase. Curb weight is a respectable 375 pounds.

Fittingly, the Scrambler 400 X gets a longer 55.8-inch wheelbase, longer-travel suspension, larger 19-inch front wheel, and wide handlebars. A robust steel brake pedal and high-grip footpegs will help newbie ADV riders on gravel, while the larger 320mm front brake disc helps arrest things as needed. Curb weight is somewhat respectable, at 395 pounds.

Both get ride-by-wire throttle with traction control that can be turned off as needed. Bosch dual-channel ABS comes standard on both, with the Scrambler 400 X allowing you to disengage it for low-traction situations. They share LED headlights and a torque-assist clutch with aids in shifting as well as reducing rear wheel lockups in sudden downshifts.

The 2024 Speed 400 is available in Carnival Red/Storm Grey, Caspian Blue/Storm Grey, and Phantom Black/Storm Grey. The 2024 Scrambler 400 X comes in Matte Khaki Green/Fusion White, Carnival Red/Phantom Black, and Phantom Black/Silver Ice.

“Silver Ice”? Does acceptable ice come in any other hue? No offense, but Motorcyclist hereby extends an offer to brainstorm livery and/or paint color names in the future. We’re here to help.

Beach Boy: A surf-ready Yamaha WR155R scrambler from Thailand

yamaha wr155r scrambler 745x497 1

Yamaha WR155R scrambler by Dream Fast Co.
A surfboard rack on a motorcycle might seem like a gimmick to some, but if you live in Bali and love surfing, it’s a downright necessity. The Indonesian island is peppered with surf spots—and a small bike with a rack is the best way to get to them. It doesn’t hurt if that motorcycle looks as good as this Yamaha WR155R scrambler.

The bike was built by Dream Fast Co. for Tiw, the founder of the Laem Yah Rayong Surf Club. Both parties are based in Thailand, but the influence came directly from Bali’s motorcycle and surf culture. Tiw has Balinese friends who use vintage enduro bikes to find hard-to-reach surf spots, and wanted to capture that vibe in his Yamaha WR155R.

Dream Fast Co.’s mandate was to take the modern and reliable WR155R and inject it with a big dose of classic Yamaha dirt bike style. It sounds simple enough on paper, but in reality, it meant wading through piles of plastic to shed the WR155R’s contemporary aesthetic.

Once the Yamaha was denuded of its plastics, the Dream Fast Co. crew set about reworking its lines. The subframe was hacked off, and a new one was fabricated, this time with a kicked-up loop at the back. A new seat sits up top; it’s designed for one, but there is a smidge of space out back if you and your passenger want to get extremely cozy.

1967 FORD BRONCO CUSTOM SUV: Selling with No Reserve at the 2024 Scottsdale Fall Auction

This custom 1967 Ford Bronco underwent a full, frame-off restoration in 2020 that was completed in 2022. The frame and all components have been powder-coated in black. The body parts were media-blasted and coated top and bottom in LizardSkin for protection. The powerplant is a 351W with aluminum heads, roller rockers, mild roller cam, 10.25:1 compression and .40-over pistons. An Edelbrock Pro-Flow 4 fuel-injection system controls and monitors the engine components. It also features a CVF serpentine pulley system, K&N filters and an aluminum radiator.

The engine is backed by a C4 automatic transmission built to handle 400hp and includes Kevlar bands, Redline clutches, a 2,000-rpm stall converter and Dana 20T transfer case with twin-stick conversion. Power goes to a Ford 9-inch rear end with a Dana 30 front differential, WARN locking hubs and 3.50-ratio gears. It also features power steering and brakes (front disc and rear drum), new drive lines, a ceramic-coated exhaust system with Flowmaster mufflers, complete Painless wiring, a chrome tilt wheel, 2.5-inch suspension lift with 2-inch body lift, stainless-steel brake lines, six Bronco oil shocks with single steering stabilizer and a BorgWarner steering box with all billet components.

This SUV was finished in a new Bronco Area 51 Blue with the original Bronco Wimbledon White hardtop, roll cage, dash, grille and accessories, and rides on color-matched Ford steel wheels wrapped in Toyo Mud Country tires. The cabin includes high-back bucket seats with a console, a rear seat that folds up, shoulder seat belts and a Vintage Air system for heating and cooling. It also features a Kenwood head unit with back-up camera, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and charging port, and sound going through two 6×9-inch and two 6.5-inch KICKER speakers paired with a 10-inch Fosgate subwoofer.
