The Triumph is a kark bike....





 :D

But then, let's rather leave it up to the member's who have ridden it.

You saw my comparison on the specs. I know specs doesn't say everything but for a technical/mechanical no-brainer like me, it is all I got. Based on that it doesn't make sense to buy one above the 650's other than looks and maybe price. 65K plus some extra's needed doesn't make it that much cheaper than the BM and you got a bike weighing 28kg more (26 to TA) and generating almost the same power.

Honest question. Trying to learn here because it doesn't make sense to me.

Absolutely right Kilroy, and the most unfortunate part is most of the 'posers' buy BMW's. :(  :(
I heard a stat a while ago that only 1 in 20 GS riders use them properly, very sad.
But then again, that leaves more space for the guys on this forum to ride. :)  :)

Hey Wes

The Triumph scrambler looks cool, cant comment on the performance or ability of the bike.

I have triumph tiger and the ride, sound and torque is sweet from the 3 cylinder.

Have a test drive, nothing to loose.

Maybe consider one of these??   :thumbright:

with all the talk of vespas and scramblers and posing, i thought this was hilarious:

"They claim to be aiming at an unusual, offbeat mixture of older traditionalists and fashion-conscious young riders who might be looking to graduate from their Vespas?or buy a first bike just because the Scrambler is so damned cool."

We already have plenty of good dirt and dual-sport bikes, after all, and this is a street scrambler.


I think he summed it up with that. Now go and get yourself a real DS bike Wes.
