Yeah, for sure.
Light, quick, nimble, flickable...
it's like an old school Versys!

AZ, the guy I ride with in Palm has a Triumph Scrambler, lots of fun. BUT, its not really a great trail bike and its not really a great road bike. Power is good, but with the knobbly stock tires it sluff's the corners if you hit a white/yellow line.

It looks very cool and is a head turner. Every time we stop, folk gather, majority don't realise its a new bike. Has a good range about 180 to reserve light.

Sent you a text pic of the Scrambler (and the V) on ice coming up from Pioneer town to Big Bear. In the interests of full disclosure, we did turn round here, just too slippery.

Machog, thanks for the pics!
That bike has always looked just like outright fun to me!
I really like the way the exhaust comes off the bike too...
and in green!

That's a Derbi Scrambler. Spanish company, I think. Same engine as the Yamaha Tenere. Single cylinder, 659 cc's.

Don't do the demo ride on the Triumph Scrambler. Back away slowly and leave.
