Example text

Photographs complete, I’m off to the fair. And what a riotous ride to get there. The SP summons my inner hooligan whenever the back roads kink, though the front end feels nervous when the curves come in quick succession. It’s a twitchy machine, and riding it is like straddling the hummingbird in Honey, I Shrunk the Kids. The wide handlebar provides lots of leverage, but judicious throttle and brake application is necessary to maintain complete control. Front brakes are powerful monobloc Brembos, and if you’re overzealous with the lever they’ll send the duckbill ducking (though firming up the fork lessens this).

Sure, it’s a smart-looking bike, but technologically, it’s unimpressive. Then I sit on it. At 186 kg, the Scrambler is light, and at 790 mm, the seat is low. I’d like more room between the perch and the pegs — something I say about everything besides adventure bikes — but most people will find the fit ideal. The wide handlebar sweeps back for an upright riding posture, and the seat is just the right amount of stiff. But something more than having an ergonomic fit and being easy to handle makes sitting on the Scrambler appealing; somehow, even at a standstill, it feels fun.

The clutch is light, shifting is slick, and fuelling well sorted (but it’s still best to keep the revs up). Braking is on par with the SP, and ABS and traction control are standard. And though it doesn’t feel as nervous as the SP (smoother throttle response calms it), it makes me nervous when hustling through the twisties. Its softer suspension has a tendency to squat, lessening cornering clearance, and making sparks fly from the centrestand; a big enough bump could hoist the rear tire off the ground.
