The Engine and Performance
At the heart of XCx is a unique 1215cc, triple engine featuring 12 valves, DOHC system and fuel injection. The engine meets the Euro 4 and BS4 emission standards but also gives the family distinctive exhaust note which is peculiar for the Triumph triple cylinders. This engine is teamed up with 6-speed gearbox and delivers a maximum power of 137 bhp @ 9300 rpm and peak torque of 121 Nm @ 6400 rpm. Here, conventional chain driven final drive has been replaced by a shaft drive. These are more reliable with low-maintenance than chain drives.

The Looks and Features
