The luke warm at best reviews go on and on and on just like the ones above... It appears to me that the Scrambler is a looker but not a keeper.

My search continues.

If you read the entire quote:

So the big question of any road test is: would I have one?

After ten minutes of riding I had decided the answer was no.

Now I'm thinking if I could wangle some after market silencers which Triumph state 'do not conform to EPA noise standards' then that would make a huge difference. Maybe I could put up with the heavy clutch, or perhaps it could be magically transformed.
Ultimately I think the answer is yes, as overall it seems a good package, giving that traditional Triumph 'cool' factor without the cliché oil leaks.

Selective Quoting Provides less than favorable impressions of ones ability to assess.
