Summary:

Best bike I've owned in years

Faults:

Nothing

General Comments:

Handling was a bit suspect until I replaced the stock tyres with Avon Road Riders; this totally transferred the handling of the bike, absolutely love the way it handles now.

The seat is uncomfortable after a hundred miles or so; looking to change that to a gel seat in the future.

I also have fitted the aftermarket silencers from Triumph; I love the noise.

Having owned a 2001 Bonneville prior to the Scrambler, the Scrambler feels the better bike. The grin factor is huge, it reminds me more of my earlier T140, and the power feels more raw. All in all, the best bike I've owned in years.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
