2011 Triumph Motorcycle
Youngsters will have no idea that off-road racing grids used to be filled with British twins sporting upswept pipes and wide bars.
Those days are gone-even though we did threaten to enter the modern Scrambler in a desert race over Triumph’s objections-but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the styling exercise on the street.
Triumph gave the Scrambler a 270-degree firing order to make it more tractable and give it a unique sound on the street.
Ride it out to the starting line at a desert race and guys in gray beards will nod knowingly.
