Got to sit on and admire the Scrambler Icon a few weeks ago at IMS in DC. Felt like a solid bike, liked it a lot. Couldn't sit on any of the other models but got to view them from the velvet rope.

Don't be alarmed, that is me also on the BMW R NineT. Liked that as well, but really it's a different bike and a different market/segment. Almost twice as much so not really a comparison at all.

Nothing alarming about your appearance, hipster ;).



How tall are you?
Don't take this as me being angry or too serious, but what makes me a hipster from this photo? Because I have long hair? I don't have tattoos, Im wearing jeans and a sweater and a pair of boots...normal stuff. I would say I'm not a hipster, but that's my own personal judgment. Yes, I do like to be fashionable to a degree, but I see that as just having good taste in style.

Anyway, I'm 6' tall.

ALL of us who have bought this bike are hipsters, to hear the media tell it.



I'm not too concerned with the media image though. I'm just going to mod it to suit me and enjoy riding it.
I'm an inch taller than you, and much bigger around

BTW, nobody has gotten to sit on any of the other versions yet. They've always been roped off at the shows. I ordered the Urban Enduro anyway.

I'm not concerned at all with people who are attacking the media campaign or complaining about the bike being for hipsters and all that stupid ****. I've learned not to listen to Internet trolls who know nothing but sitting around all day looking for attention through their comments.

Reviews have been positive. Looks like a fun bike with loads of character. Simple, air cooled, nothing too fancy. Perfect. Why not grab one. Plus, everyone copies Ducati. From Moto Guzzi,and I own aV7, to MV Agusta.

I do hope that any low speed fueling issues are resolved. My V7 stone has a remapped ECU by one of the best guzzi guys out there and it is such a way better bike than it was stock. No surging at all and no flat spots throughout the rpm range. Obviously emmisions regulations cause a lean issue with the fueling, which is the culprit. If that can be sorted it will be even more enjoyable to ride.

I mean the bike is kinda made for hipsters. Nothing wrong with that. In the end it just matters that you like the bike. If people dislike it just because hipsters like it, well, that doesn't make much sense at all. Can't wait till people start reporting in from their test drives.

it's probably best we keep labeling away from discussions here ;)
Clearly he's not a hipster
