Both machines share the same Bonneville high power 1,200cc parallel-twin powerplant developed on the Thruxton with a Scrambler-specific tune that claims 88.8 hp and 81.1 pound-feet of torque. The rev limit has been raised 500 rpm for a redline of 7,500 rpm. Power delivery can be best described as linear and torquey thanks to its 270-degree crank. Maximum torque is right around 4,000 rpm and slightly tapers off until the rev limiter, but even down at 3,000 rpm 75 pound-feet are available. Five rider modes on both the XC and XE control engine response and traction control; the XE adds a sixth mode—Off-road Pro—to Sport, Road, Rain, Off-road, and a rider-customizable Rider settings. Additionally, the XE features an IMU for lean-sensitive traction control and ABS, further pumping up the tech on the more expensive ($15,400) model.
