Doesn't look like a bicycle to me, looks like just about every other real bike from it's era. Just a different look from everything else now

Great looking bike. Seeing the old Scramblers makes my mind race about what the new Scrambler will look like. It almost might be a better idea to just restore an old Scrambler. Are those bikes cheap now, or incredibly expensive?

they don't build em like they used to. Its amazing how simply cars and bikes used to be built. Now you need an engineering degree to take the engine cover off your corolla without voiding the warranty.

It's probably partially due to them wanting to make more money, making you take their product back to them for servicing and parts. Got to pay to play

I'd say that companies do try to make you bring their products back to them to get them fixed. Why make things easy when you can make them difficult and make more money. The more complicated the bike you make, the more smart and advanced people think you are too. It would be so cool to find an old Scrambler on Craigslist for cheap. What do you think the odds of that are?

not for cheap you wont, at least not one in running shape. You could find a cheapy if your into resto and have the capabilities...

another big part is complexity is designed to break. Its inherent, so many factors dependent on many other factors. look at fuel injection vs carburetors....

sadly it's like that in the beginning, unless people get lucky and a service manual leaks out, after that, all the DIY'er show up.

looking at vintage scramblers makes me wonder how in the world the new one is going to look because i dont really think the new one will look anything like the original one.

I am also really wondering what the new Scrambler will look like. I think it will be far away from the old version. As long as it still looks like a Scrambler it will be fine.

I myself am considering just getting an old bike to and working on it though. I'll have to see what the new Scrambler looks like before I made a decision though.

This thread is really inspiring me to take a look at some used bikes.

The new Ducati monster got unveiled, mix how that looks with how a scrambler should look and you'll get the new scrambler.

a cafe racer scrambler would be cool
ducati should be the first to generate these idea's of how people can customize this bike.
they need to get involved with tuners and make this all go down at some major show.

on those old bikes chrome looks amazing, usually the more the better but no way will that work as well on newer bikes. Got to love the classics!
