    Scrambler is a low powered retro bike with good looks. The Yam is the complete opposite

    Put another way,the XSR 900 is a relatively high powered bike with good looks,The Scrambler is the complete opposite,and I've owned a Scrambler.
    Admittedly I've not owned a 800XCx,but then I'm not 5'5" so don't qualify.

    And blue skies here.Been out on bike all morning.

    O'dear - your grasp on reality slips even further - do they still let you drive them there flying buses

    PS - I wonder how I manage to ride an XCx at 6' 3" which I also find more roomy that the AT

    We all have different tastes.I think the XSR generally looks good,you don't,I'm not alone as it's sold out and I hear is Bike of the Year 2016.We're free to buy what we want with our own money.Get over it.

    I was on holiday in Fuertaventura last month, and saw many German registered XSR 900's knocking about the island. There were several large groups of riders razzing the nuts off them. I eventually got to speak to some of them at a bar, who explained it was the press launch and for the most part they were enjoying the bikes, although weren't too thrilled with the sound of them, and most of them liked the old school style yellow and black graphics. Some of the bikes were in plainer colours.
    What a great job they have

    Wasn't sure when i saw it in the flesh. but then i saw this with the seat cowl and clip-on style bars. Looks a bit special !! and the engine is a peach. That centre tank strip and seat cowl are aluminium. Might look good polished up. Look forward to testing one in a couple of weeks.
