    As much as I am reserved towards hipsters, I must say I like the new 1200 Triumph Scrambler. I consider it The Ultimate Hipster Toy for 2019 :)

    Recently introduced Speed Twin tells me that Triumph is really on top of motorcycle design these days. At least in this category.

    I like it. I hope it has at least the Thruxton R tune.

    But then how could they justify charging extra for a Thruxton R. ??

    Unfortunately, my back hurts just looking at it. Hope it attracts younger buyers - the lifeblood of long term success.

    Looks like a great new bike. Triumph is definitely stepping up their game. I don't see this as targeted just at "hipsters" . over 90hp puts this into competitive territory with those who don't just want the latest japanese sports bike and it has a lot of good features.
    Riding position would be cruncher for me since I really need something upright these days after a liver transplant did a number on my abdomen

    It looks so good Kawasaki is building a clone. A picture of it was on some social media site and I loved all the folks that commented, If I wanted a bike that looked like a Triumph. I would just buy a Triumph! I would add and get the better bike!
