Scrambler photos

The original scramblers were basically UJM/standards with off-road/dual-surface tires to make them a sort of homegrown trail/street/beach bike. Many were bobbed and otherwise stripped down for performance reasons, and the modern scramblers still display this heritage. The genre is enjoying a resurgence of interest in recent years with numerous scrambler models available from almost every quarter. Ducati gets a special mention for building an entire division around the scrambler platform, a gamble which has paid off and allowed them to shape the market somewhat.
