Ok folks,

Here is my day 2 review. I covered the bikes's dimensions (seat height), power delivery, handling, and brakes. I also take you through a very scenic ride along --(California) Monterey, Pacific Grove, and Pebble Beach, and 17 mile drive. I also compare it to my past bikes Hypermotard 796, Monster 796, and even my old Guzzi Griso. Ohh, I forgot, I talk about Ducati' very lame an cheesy marketing campaign.

Hope y'all like it.

I am only posting this to alert you if you don't know, but all of your videos are right channel dominant. The audio balance is heavy right and pretty weak left side. I only notice this since I usually have headphones on when I'm using the computer. I'm gonna watch the video now!

You are selling me on the concept that this is the perfect motorcycle to bum around on. Nowhere you need to be, but don't want to sit around home? Jump on the Scrambler and point it in some direction.

I like the fact that it sits low. I think from most of what I've seen it's going to be what I hoped it was: a 75 horsepower replacement for my TW200. This is the bike I sold to make room for the Scrambler.



You could take corners at full speed with those cartoon tires. You could ride up and down stairs. You could just see something sitting in the middle of an abandoned factory and be like, "I want to ride over and check that out." But what sucked so much about that bike was that it was painfully SLLLLOW. And 65mph top speed out on the highway in full tuck. Maybe 72mph on a cool night with your head resting on the handlebars. I feel like the Scrambler will replace the Yamaha perfectly. It's too bad it costs twice as much, but you're getting a whole extra cylinder, so I guess it's fair.

@silverluxe I concur with your assessment.

Thanks for creating and posting this review.
Do you plan on doing a long term review once you have had the bike long enough?



Yes. for sure. I just need to work on making my audio "better". I will make a 1st service (600miles) after purchase review. Then maybe a review of a long road trip. Also, I plan on riding some trails and reviewing its performance off road.

Nice! I like the spread and range of reviews you want to do which covers some key things that a lot of riders here will value.

In for also reading your feedback on accessories/modifications you plan on getting along the way.

Awesome will do. I probably won't do much in terms of accessories- just the exhaust for now. That being said the Corbin factory is 45minutes from my house ;) maybe a new seat?

You should make a deal to let them use your pan to create their own if they give you a free seat. I'm trying to picture the Scrambler with a gunfighter seat on it and I'm not seeing it.

Yep, already a done deal. Just waiting on them to give me a date :)
