It's best to be accelerating or decelerating and that way you won't find any lumpy bits! I imagine that smooth only comes with a four cylinder engine but I can't advise as I've only ridden them when when my own bikes are being serviced.
It's called character, enjoy :-)

The bike does need riding. That's the fun - especially in the City.

And seriously, under 2000rpm there is nothing else than hurting the engine.

From my past on a Monster 1100 if find the Scrambler sooo smooth on the low end

(once the engine warm and the first service done you'll never find me under 4000rpm)
I agree with Personne, I had a 848 that bucked like that below 4-4500 rpm's. The scrambler may go a little lower as it's only 2 valve.

My 848 did the same thing. It's an Italian thing then?

my tech guy says that based on air cooled monsters...its nothing a flash-remap with an exhaust wont cure.

I do almost 2 hours per day in traffic so I've probably adapted faster than some. I'd say the scrambler is my perfect commuter because I wouldn't ride a bike that didn't have some style and character.
I really love the way this bike can change speed (both up and down) and direction so effortlessly and still feel under control. Another great thing is the upright position makes it easier for me to turn my body to look behind. My last bike (Guzzi Griso) had me leaning more forward which made it harder to turn from the waist.
I was thinking about this thread in the slower bits of my ride today. There is definitely a speed where first is too low and second too high and I find myself shifting a lot but it's worth it

Do you find the Scrambler to be good enough that you'd consider riding it for extended periods of time that are longer than your commutes?

Hi dukes,
Yes definitely but it's no tourer ( do I get a prize for stating the obvious?)
I think the longest time I've ridden it for is two hours. The seat might become annoying in a long ride as I find it hard but the bike would keep me happy all day

Hi Pete,
Cool, you will not be disappointed. you may have to wait until the bikes been out in the USA for a couple of months. They do molds of the seat pans to get them right! They are awesome at what they do!
Have a good one Pete!
