The Ducati Scrambler, designed by a youngster, is garnering a lot of positive reviews from riders and media alike. The new Triumph Bonneville Street Twin is also going to be as appealing as the Scrambler. The reason why more and more youngsters are being attracted to these kind of motorcycles is because they look retro but they have a fusion of old world charm and modern technology, which makes them incredible to own. Plus the frame and the suspension of these bikes is tuned in such a way that a rider can experience great agility and handling. These are the things that give bikes like the Street Twin and Scrambler an edge over the modern naked motorcycles.
These easy to ride bikes are attracting the youngsters to the showroom however, bikes like the Honda CB1100 and CB1300, which have been there for quite some time now, are reserved for the more indulgent people. These big retro machines look more or less like the original CB750 from the seventies. But if you really want a dose of pure retro at its finest, then bikes like the Kawasaki W series work wonders and they are small and compact with just the right amount of power.
A few years back, adventure motorcycles were the craze and in 2015, it seems that the retro looking bikes are the new talk of the town. I have always appreciated manufacturers’ effort to bring back the bygone era and with the emergence of the new modern-classic bikes I hope that this trend stays for a long time. After all, these motorcycles stand out from the crowd and are appreciated by almost everyone on the road. Until next time, Ride Hard and Love Retro!
