sup fellas

I have been seeing a lot of scramblers on the road recently. The local bike meet down the street from my house have their own scrambler group that shows up every now and then. I have an idea of getting one but want to do more research before pullin the trigger. This is why I am here.

chat with you guys soon.

welcome to the forum.

did you just get into scramblers recently because almost every where i go i always see scrambler styled bikes. when i do get into something new i tend to see a lot of it everywhere, before i would have never noticed them, this may be the case with you!

What do you ride at the moment?

Thanks. I am currently riding a Suzuki GSF 650s I have owned it for about tow years now. I love the bike but I get use to things real fast. Not the wife though lol. The style really appeals to me and every one I talk to say the same.

Welcome Bumper! :)
I always loved the analog RPM gauge and digital cluster setup on the GSF 650's.
What are you going to expect the Ducati Scrambler to be like?

adding to this...

I would prefer an analog setup just to keep things a bit more on the classy side, i still wouldn't mind digital if it came with it.

I have no complaints, either one is good. The digital I would have to get use to but I like the new stuff anyways.

Yeah I have develop lots of good feelings over the years for my GSF 650 but I think it might just be time to get a taste of something else.

Haven't really though much on how the new scrambler could be, thats why I am here.

Going from Analog to Digi the only issue is the smaller text in some cases, since they try to jam a ton of info and features onto one screen. Aside from that it's a pretty smooth transition one to the other. It's just fun seeing a needle jump rather than bars on a screen

I prefer the needle on the analog myself and the theme of a scrambler should just be analog to think of it.

if they can make an advanced digital screen that shows an analog gauge or even have presets to which theme we want that would solve the problem here.

yea ok but when a digi gauge breaks they all break. At least with analog, if you loose the speedo you still have the tach. Digi breaks and now i dont know how much fuel i have left...

Scrambler wont get it, the electonics also add weight. Minor, but its added...

But at least with a digital gauge the chance of it failing is not as likely as an analog, there are far less moving parts.

I rather take my chances with a digital gauge.

This is a tough one to get in to. They both have their goods and bads. Just really depends on what the rider/owner is more comfortable with.

Not much of you guys like the new digital world. What is it about the digital that you guys don't like?

LOL moving parts. Its a needle glued to a rotating cylinder that gets its inputs directly from the engine. Digital has to get the mechanical data, convert it to digital data and display on the screen. Analog is a one shot deal.

As for less things to break on Digital, thats an absurd thing to say. Anyone who's ever owned an iPhone knows its much easier to break than one an old blackberry for example, but a better example would be the old wall telephones.

Digital is not as durable, plain and simple.
