Well if Ducati doesn't want our money, Triumph certainly does. The new 2014 Triumph Scrambler has shown itself..
Triumphs new Scrambler carries on the newly sought-after heritage and brings in several upgrades over last year.
The 2014 Triumph Scrambler will be available in two color schemes: Matt Pacific Blue and the striking Lunar Silver/Diablo Red combo, for a base price starting at ~$10k. The seat has been revised for a more relaxed riding position.
While the Triumph Scrambler looks very old school, there is a lot of modern-day tech to make riding more fuel-efficient, eco-friendly and enjoyable.
This Scrambler is powered by a brawny 865cc engine with top-class fuel injection and capable of 58 hp @ 6,800 rpm and 50 ft-lbs @ 4,750 rpm.
Add in high-performance KYB suspension and powerful Nissin brakes to conquer the rigors of rough riding and that's it...
Certainly an attainable target for Ducati, I'm confident Ducati can blow Triumph out of the water performance wise and should be able to clock it in under the Triumphs MSRP or at least match it with better specs...
