I hope they make this, but I wouldn't call it a Scrambler, more of a cafe racer style like the Triumph Bonneville Thruxton.

Love my Thruxton for its simplistic look and feel.......

But that M-G is dead nuts cool!

That is a good looking bike. The exhaust thingie is half way decent looking as compared to some of the bazookas that have been put  on new bikes for years now.

another artistic rendering, not a factory release...too "swoopy " looking for me...exhaust isn't right, and tail is too short. I would much rather have a real scrambler, much more like the Triumph scrambler and less like the Ducati.

Even if they had the poor taste to make something so ugly they couldn't because the 2 valve big block is dead and buried. Why people still want to keep pretending they can drag its zombie like carcass out of the grave is beyond me. Rolleyes

Looks more like a coffee racer for the hipster crowd to me.

I like a classic cafe/endurance racer type look. Dunstall/Rickman fairing and tail is a good part of my taste for such bikes but those bikes tend to be older Kawasaki 900/1000.
