  • SCRAMBLER CLASSIC.

    Ducati’s new Scrambler range is a trip down memory lane. A modern tribute to the care-free, halcyon days of the original Scrambler, which was born in 1962. Born free, in fact, as is engraved on the fuel cap. Sweet touches like that bring a smile to my face and encourage me to mentally unshackle from the putrid and mayhem filled realities of the so-called modern world. The Scrambler Classic is the machine to do it on. So easy to ride. Easy on the eye. Comfortable. Inspiring in a fashion that is not bent towards velocity. You don’t have to try and be fast on one. Just take it easy, dude, enjoy the ride and pass it on. The new Scrambler has an extra cylinder and a fair bit more capacity over its distant predecessor, using the reliable and effervescent 803cc air-cooled Desmo two-valve engine. The motor yields an excellent mix of easily accessible power and consistent torque that is further bolstered by well matched gearbox ratios. The bike is ultra-narrow and low in the seat, and all controls are easy to use and light to the touch, making it an attractive prospect to whatever your gender. With a slight weight of 170kg to lug, the Scrambler is certainly a zesty little number, but not intimidating. That’s what its all about, man. The diamond stitched and suitably well-used couch brown seat, spoked wheels, brushed aluminium tank covers and cow-horn ‘bars scream vintage and do a good job of hiding the machine’s actual modernity. If you look more closely there are other nice touches, like the aluminium guards, machined engine covers and tidy exhaust plumbing. It is touted as a fashion and lifestyle statement, again like its daddy, and is effective in this regard. Ducati know this, of course, and have an entire wardrobe available pour femme et homme. Handling is pretty darn good. The 18in front and relatively high profile tyres tend to slow direction changes, but this is well compensated by the handlebars, light weight and general rider ergonomics. It’s a willing performer in the curves too, with good clearance and confident corner tracking. The relatively soft suspension is not complex and provides decent stroke for absorbing corrugations. The overall comfort helps alleviate some of the effects of “hanging out in the wind” a bit, too. Brakes, which feature the miracle of ABS and “radial” caliper mounting, are effective but feel wooden, like old Brembos do. The dash is suitably sparse, but a disappointment - there is nothing analogue in it and it is not easily read, which is a shame. But in keeping with the peace, love and good happiness stuff theme, I can forgive and even forget. Overall, the Scrambler is a great little machine that is rewarding as much as it is pleasing to ride. Just hop on and go - it’s that easy. It is destined to be a hit with many people seeking a bike that is functional and places the rider in a more restful universe.
  • RENAULT news.

    Just as Renault is celebrating 25 years of the Clio in the UK, the firm has wheeled out a special edition to commemorate the anniversary. Named the Clio Iconic 25 Nav, it’s based on the flagship of the diesel range, the Dynamique S Nav, and offered with a choice of manual or automatic transmissions, both paired to the 89bhp 1.5-litre dCi engine. Extra equipment includes 17-inch alloy wheels with black inserts, rear privacy glass, GT part-leather upholstery and heated front seats. Other unique features include special black and white cross-hatch decals on the door mirrors and the option to replicate the motif on the roof, while on the inside, the same treatment features on the air vent surrounds and door armrests. Four colours are on offer - Ivory, Diamond Black, Oyster Grey and Mercury, with prices kicking off at Ј18,075 for the Clio Iconic 25 Nav dCi 90, rising to Ј19,375 for the automatic edition. Available to order now, the first examples arrive in showrooms around Christmas time.
  • Rivale 800.

    The new-for-2016 Rivale 800 is probably one of the edgiest designs available when it comes to naked streetfighters. The bike’s steel tubular trellis frame houses a 798-cc liquid-cooled three-cylinder engine that pumps out 125 PS at 12,000 RPM and a peak 84 Nm of torque at 8,600 RPM. Transmission to a fat 180/55 ZR17 rear tyre is taken care of via a cassette-type six-speed constant-mesh gearbox. The bike also benefits from MV Agusta’s EAS electronic quickshift. Front forks of the Rivale are 43- mm Marzocchi USDs while the rear suspension comprises a Sachs monoshock with adjustment for spring preload as rebound damping. The new Rivale also sports a larger 16-litre fuel-tank compared to the older model’s 12.9 litres.
