A chat with a local dealer revealed (and I'm sure you all know this already...) some specifics, as he reads them, about the new 'junior' scrambler that is due out. He states that the new 400cc will still be a twin (so not just lopping off a cylinder) and will use the same frame. He reckons it will look the same as the 803 maybe in different colour schemes/trim levels. I wondered how the current scrambler owners view this decision considering the fact the 803 is a small looking bike and would be seen, possibly, as no different to the A2-friendly one. I for one dont want to field comments about me riding a 'learner' bike, but more crucially, do not want my beloved bike being devalued by this confusion. Does anyone have any more details? and what do y'all think about the forthcoming newborn Duke?
