Post Review: Scrambler 450 - that Marty McFly feeling ...

Came across this fascinating review of a 450cc single cylinder Scrambler from a 70's biking magazine.

CYCLESPORT ROADTEST: 450 Ducati Jupiter Scrambler (2.4Mb PDF link)

I think it's a must read for Scrambler 2015 owners. The details, how innovative Ducati was back in the 70's and the significance of a single cylinder Scrambler compared with it's twin cylindered peers back then. More importantly, I'm seeing the 2015 Scrambler in a new light, with a much better appreciation of what a great 'post heritage' effort it has turned out to be!

There are some eerie similarities with the 2015 edition in terms of how the bike behaved. The writing style with exquisite details of the machine is also amazing. It's a refreshing change from modern day Internet search engine oriented reviews.

Last but not the least, I was tickled to see the pictures, what the reviewers wore and what they did with their machines. It was truly a 'Back to the Future' moment and I really did feel like Marty McFly. Enjoy!
