Stock from the showroom floor, the Scrambler is not exactly dripping with functional or aural charisma, but a good set of slightly throatier mufflers and better shocks make a big difference. And that may be the great secret of the Scrambler’s appeal: Like the Bonneville, it’s almost a blank canvas for personalization, allowing you to add whatever level of sound and glory you desire. You get to build upon the $8799 Scrambler’s character to reflect your own. There’s a virtual cottage industry (okay, maybe a large castle industry) in aftermarket cosmetic and performance parts for Triumph Twins, so it becomes a participatory bike, rather than one you just buy and stuff in the garage. And when you get done, you’ve got a motorcycle that sits right and looks right, sounds good and can go almost anywhere. Maybe even over that famous barbed-wire fence.
