UNITED KINGDOM: Brixton Motorcycles, the European brand that outsources its production to Chinese motorcycle manufacturers, has unveiled an additional variant of its most premium offering, the Cromwell 1200.
Brixton Motorcycle unveiled Cromwell 1200 X
The Cromwell 1200 X is a more rugged machine built on the same foundation as the Cromwell 1200 that Brixton Motorcycles designed to challenge the mighty Triumph Bonneville.
The Cromwell 1200 and the Triumph Bonneville are similar bikes, and both feature retro styling and a 1,222cc, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, parallel-twin engine with a 270-degree crankshaft.
However, the Cromwell produces 83 horsepower, three more than the Bonneville, and sends power to the rear wheel via a six-speed manual transmission.
The new Cromwell 1200 X comes with dual-purpose tires, higher ground clearance, and scrambler-derived stylings such as fork gaiters, a sump guard, a headlight grill, and a flyscreen.
While it’s not relatively as purpose-built as the Triumph Scrambler 1200, the company designed the Cromwell 1200 X to appeal to riders who want a more rugged and versatile bike.
Pricing and availability information on the new Cromwell 1200 X is scarce presently, but market experts expect the bike to hit European roads in the coming months.
The standard Cromwell 1200 retails for $11,653 (10,999 Euros), so the Cromwell 1200 X is likely to be priced slightly higher than this. Brixton Motorcycles is just one of the many motorcycle manufacturers that have levelled up their product offerings over the past few years.
Brands like CFMOTO and Voge have also hit the global stage with models that are close to, if not at par with, models from Europe, the U.S., and Japan.
With the launch of the Cromwell 1200 X, Brixton Motorcycles is showing that it can compete with some of the most iconic bikes in the world.
