There were rumours around that there will be a smaller one, and a larger one, before too long. Not sure how much smaller, nor how much bigger.
It could be good.Hmm wonder if it's true, think it would be a good idea?
The USA doesn't really need a smaller bike, so I doubt it'll end up here. Our laws aren't set up around the 400cc and smaller stuff like they are in other markets.
800cc is already small in my opinion, but you're always looking for that trade off of weight and horsepower. Riding a 300cc Beta RR on the street is a lot more thrilling than an 800cc Scrambler So maybe if the 400cc version is built focusing on weight saving more than it is created simply as a de-tuned 800cc bike. (in my mind I'm thinking about the Kawasaki W650 vs the W400 which was the SAME bike with smaller cylinder bores and pistons)
Here is the rumour you were referring to. It talks about a single cylinder 500cc and a larger 1200cc twin version. Haven't heard anything more about it since then.There were rumours around that there will be a smaller one, and a larger one, before too long. Not sure how much smaller, nor how much bigger.
It doesn't really matter in the USA. My insurance is mostly affected by the age of the vehicle (older are cheaper.)
I pay $8.64/year (liability only with a signed medical rejection wavier, ha!) for each of my Vespa scooters from the 70s. But full coverage on my 1974 BMW R90/6 is about 110/year. Full coverage on my W650 is 150/year. Full coverage insurance on the new Scrambler is 200/year.
My 1150cc Speed Triple was 150/year as well.
I'm 37 and have a bunch of other stuff insured with the same company (other vehicles, my house, umbrella policy.)
What do you guys think about a lower cc Scrambler? Maybe a 400-500cc model? Keep the 800cc too
wow, look at that. even has the teeny-tiny little flyscreen. niceLike that?
