An excellent, though probably pricy? machine for someone who wants a motorbike that looks the way a motorbike should look.
But why not use the proper terminology and call it a roadster which is what it is.
A scrambler is what a moto-cross machine used to be called, and that it is not.
Succumb not to the erosion of those born of unconsecrated union.

No engine protection,no knobbly tires,no wired wheels.Just the same as the normal R90t(Generally).What a waste of time.

I see no scrambler in the picture, am I missing something?
The bikes in the picture is 10 times closer to a cafe racer than a scrambler.

Come on guys! It is a lifestyle machine.

Picture the advert: Metrosexual dude in designer lumber jack kit complete with beard, scrambling on black top from coffee shop to hair dresser.

They should have rather built a few more Hp2's with the old engines they had left over from the previous range. :deal:

Aren't we talking about picking up chicks in another thread because of the bike, I reckon this would work as well.

It's really pretty, and I wouldn't mind one parked in my garage.

And even though it is called a scrambler, I doubt it is intended to do any scrambler stuff.

Is the Triumph Scrambler a scrambler? No its not but calling it one might sell a few.

That is what scramblers looked like prior to the "modern day" scrambler we saw from the mid 60's onward.
