    A really nice looking bike with what I consider the way a bike really should look. A bit heavy at 547 wet weight. What do you guys think?

    The weight and limited rear suspension travel is what I don't like. I think it's basically the Bolt model with different clothes. A Scrambler in looks only.

    Oh, that hurts. I really like it's looks. I wonder if the rear could be beefed up. I think I could handle the weight.

    I think the look is great and it would be a great street bike and thought about getting one myself, I just think the name on it is misleading. On the pavement the suspension would be OK unless you have lots of pot holes like NY.

    Most of my scrambling would be on the "street" back paved roads etc.

    Agree love the look but this should be considered what it is a cool looking street bike. Love the maximum torque being at 3000 rpm. Would be a lot of fun.

    Max torque low rpm means nice pickup even with non monsterous hp.

    2.8" rear and 4.7" front travel it can't even scramble back roads,
    Its basically my 1200 CC Buell, But it weighs even more,
    I don't think I like it much,
    Ide rather a fully restored Honda CB750 from the 70s.
