Saw this bike on a autoblog and thought that it was a great competitor to the eventual Ducati Scrambler. The Royal Enfield Continental GT costs a reasonable $8,215 (6,185 pounds) and runs on a 29.1 HP 535 cc 4-stroke single engine. The styling is retro, but it comes with a spattering of modern technologies: keihin EFI, electric starting, digital electronic ignition, dual Paiolo gas-charged piggyback rear shocks, and more! Not sure if it is oing to be sold outisde of the UK though.

Check out the pictures!

its a gorgeous gorgeous bike, but its more of a cafe racer not a scrambler. Still very pretty. Also i think its a limited production bike, something handbuilt and sold for like $30k...

But if you like ducatis and you like cafe racers you'll like this...

the scrambler better not have high mounted mirrors that stick out like a sore thumb, i much rather have these more stealthy mounted mirrors:

Agreed on the mirrors. I hate it when the mirrors look like bug antennae. This Royal Enfield is a nice bike, and it is affordable too. It isn't really in the same category as a Scrambler, though the two bikes could be cross shopped because they are so similar in price. Pretty sure this bike is only sold in Europe though. Doesn't look like it would fit a passenger very comfortably though...

Just some guy who was bored of waiting for Scrambler news ;) ahaha

heres the article if your interested Ducati Monster SR2 800 Café - Pipeburn - Purveyors of Classic Motorcycles, Cafe Racers & Custom motorbikes

That site is great BTW, lots of custom bikes, most of them cafe or scrambler style.

I'm thinking if Ducati doesnt give us a scrambler I'm going to look at chopping something up into a cafe racer...

Custom one of versions should be done for all Ducati's and something that gets started by Ducati and done by some tuning company or vendor, best way to get a lot of new interest in a bike that some think is boring.
