I like the Scrambler, but I must admit to being somewhat biased. Back in the late '60s, I sold, repaired, rode and raced Triumph 500s and 650s, including the high-pipe Trophys, so this 900 speaks to me in a language I understand. That's why I don't expect it to be anything other than what it is: a reasonable modern-day interpretation of those originals. In some ways it's not as good, in others it's better. Yeah, it's heavier, but it also has superior electrics, sits on more-sophisticated suspension and is less maintenance-intensive. And the feeling I get when riding it is close to what I experienced almost 40 years ago.
