    Burly Brand "Jackrabbit" Scrambler.

    Here are some photos of the Burly Brand "Jackrabbit" Scrambler, this machine is based on a 2006 XL883 Sportster which has been converted to 1200cc. It makes me wonder, why can't Harley-Davidson produce a Scrambler of their own? The Sportster would be an ideal platform for producing a purpose built H-D factory Scrambler. These dual purpose machines are very popular at the moment, especially with young riders. Moto Guzzi, Ducati, Moto Morini, BMW and Triumph all produce Scramblers, there is even talk of an Indian Scout Scrambler being announced in 2018.

    The last H-D branded Scramblers were the SX line of 2-strokes in the late 1970's which were built by AFM Harley-Davidson Aermacchi in Italy. The 2-stroke singles were of 125cc, 175cc, 250cc and 350cc, numerous warranty claims killed off H-D's Italian built machines, the Aermacchi factory and all it's stock was bought by Cagiva in 1978.

    So come on Harley-Davidson, let's see a factory Sportster Scrambler in the near future.

    The Burly Brand Jackrabbit.

    I like that. The sporty lends itself so well to that style. Maybe HD will come up with a tracker style bike in their production plans.
