the Scrambler 1200 Steve McQueen edition is based on the Scrambler 1200 XE and it gets a bunch of custom accessories factory-fitted along with a new colour scheme that consists of a competitive green fuel tank, brushed foil knee pads, gold lining, gold logos and a Steve McQueen graphic on the tank itself.

The 2021 Scrambler 1200 gets a 1,200 cc parallel-twin engine that is liquid-cooled and now meets the stringent Euro V emission norms. The motor churns out 88 bhp at 7,250 rpm while peak torque output is rated at 110 Nm which comes in at just 4,500 rpm. The engine is paired to a six-speed gearbox.
