The 2019 1200 Scrambler
« on: 25 October, 2018, 05:23:15 PM »
What y'all rec'n to it? Would ya have one? It's looking good, one bit I don't follow is, the XE has 50mm more ground clearance, yet  both have same seat height at 840mm, a tad too high for my 30" legs but sure it can be dropped somehow.

The blurb says the XE's longer swingarm accounts for the bigger ground clearance????   Im not an engineer, no idea.  It looks pretty enough, would I have one?  Nah, 21" Front wheel dont do it for me and its still too heavy for real off-road IMHO.

Hmmm, im getting old, the more I look at it the more I like it, someone shoot me

The full spec is now on the website. They're not same seat height at all. The XC is 840mm & the XE is 870mm. Sounds more like it given the ground clearance.

If they'd given the XE 21" & 19" wheels, then fitted 19" & 17" to the XC as a road bike option, we'd have had a comfier seat height. I don't have a problem with a 21" front wheel 'cos my lil traillie is 21"/18". It's a bit daft on a big heavy lump.

Not really my sort of bike at all. But the look does sort of grow on you. I can see the Hipsters taking to it with a will ....

Which is great, since they normally only ride on a few sunny days in the year (in the UK), and after a few years when they move on to the next fad, we'll be able to pick up a secondhand bargain!   :001:

Triumph folk rave about them out here. Saw one in British Racing Green, and it did look quite outstanding. May have been a custom paint job. Very nice  :062:

My favourite bike at this years show... But I'd only have one as a second bike for tooling about on... Couldn't see me going to the South of France on one... Food for thought... I've got a VFR and Morini Corsaro in the garage that might go some way to paying for one in addition to the TS.. Trouble is, they're  great bikes anall... :-)

What those people call off-road should imo be called off tarmac. We don't have trails that easy up in th'ills. An old Meriden Bonnie with semi knobblies would rip round that course. Like he said, this type of bike is hardly going off-road. great poseurs bike though.
