On the open road, the motor definitely has a sporting feel that is, at times, exhilarating. Remember, it’s only pushing around about 400 pounds of motorcycle, so those 75 horses and 50 ft/lbs of torque don’t have to work all that hard to get things moving. Midrange is very strong, and I found myself caught out a couple of times when I was too aggressive with the throttle on short straights between turns. It simply crackled and hurtled me down the road faster than I expected, which is good and bad. Blasts on the freeway are fine, with it moving up to 100 mph quickly.
Oh boy!! That's what I wanted to hear! The scrambler is as sporty a bike as I'll need!:)
Thanks Mixup!

its a bad, bad bike... ;)

In urban settings, the bike inspires hooliganism. You can use the snappy power to wheelie when the light turns green without really trying (honest, officer), and the maneuverability of the light weight and relatively low seat height means you can knife through traffic as aggressively as you like. Nose wheelies are also doable, so you can get yourself in as much trouble as you can handle — maybe more.

I own a Guzzi V7 which I love.
I left a deposit on the Scrambler.
Im torn.. The higher maintenance on a belt driven Ducati scares me.

Really curious about your thoughts on the V7 - that was my other option vs the Scrambler. My biggest concern was a slight lack of power for some longer (touring) trips. How d'you find it?
