Ernie Vigil has a go on the 2012 Triumph Scrambler 900


Ernie Vigil seems to be having fun on the Scrambler 900...

The Scrambler isn’t really our most favourite Triumph – that would be the Speed Triple. With its 865cc, 58bhp parallel-twin, 1960s styling, and suspension and tyres that are neither ideal for the street nor for the dirt, the Scrambler comes across as a bit confused. And we’re not too sure if too many modern day motorcycle riders want to look like Steve McQueen anyway.

Still, professional freestyle stunt rider Ernie Vigil seems to like the Triumph Scrambler and, apparently, has the skill to make the Scrambler do things we can’t. Enjoy the video!

Really? Pretty much anyone old enough to remember cylinder fins that were not just decoration and not think "Lightning" when someone says "McQueen" basically falls into that group. As evidenced by all the Retro-Twins Triumph keeps selling out of.
