A little light at the end of the tunnel. Looks like some good changes finally could be coming. Read the specs on the 1200 Scrambler and guess what .? Just as suspected. It has 89 hp at ..... 7400 rpm so Dyna John hopefully you can figure out how to add the betterment to the 2016 model. Restrictioned exhaust obviously reducing the power so rpm increase was easy fix . Good luck with this one. Brooke

That really is not that great for this bike so lets see what could be done for this.

Explanation...The Thruxton R. has 97 hp at just 6850 rpm. 8 more than the Scrambler at 7400 rpm. The easiest way to increase the R hp would be to raise the revs but it’s ECU closes the throttles 15 % at 7000 rpm then shuts off at 7400. Modifications to the tune are severely restricted by Triumphs decision to disallow any entry by the aftermarket into the the computer which has a key or entry code that Triumph will not divulge.My point was if we install the Scrambler ECU on the R we should gain an easy 8 hp or so .Both engines are the same but the Scrambler exhaust is obviously very restricting to the point of lowering the hp from 97 to the low eighties, not good. Answer, turn it up an extra 550 rpm to get it up to 89 and tell the comrades they moved the power band down for more low end torque. When in fact the rpm has moved up. Marketing Rules The World!

We are really restricted what we can do on these new bikes, in the old days people did all sorts of thing to get more out the bike.
