Joined this forum to help eventually decide on what bike I'll get, with the Ducati Scrambler out for a while, some time has been spent looking into it. But having been interested in Yamaha products for years, delving into what Yamaha has brought to the table here is a must!

I'm a bit torn between the XSR700 and the Ducati Scrambler too. How big of a price difference is between them?
If this bike ever makes it to us I would expect it to be nearly the same price. There is roughly $1000 diff in the base price between the Ducati and the fz 07 (the ducati being the higher)... at least up here in Canada. I have a feeling that the xsr will start at a minimum of a thou higher than the fz.

I think one thing a member had to replace were the OEM springs because their wrists and forearms took a pounding from the UK's roads and overdamped springs. Probably a lot more if I took the time to read through the thread.

I decided to XSR 700 over Ducati scrambler for 3 reasons:

1. Because it's Yamaha
2. Because c.a. $1000 more is not justified in case of Ducati
3. Because of double disc in front brake in Yamaha, gear indicator (ok ok I know - one can hear the gear :) but it's very handy), much more torque engine and overall look&feel (the last one is very subjective :)

Take care

I had the 700 and test rode the scrambler, I loved the scrambler! especially the enduro model. When i got my 700 i was a big fan but i just needed to get the 900 it wasnt enough for me. If i had the money for a second bike i would def invest in a scrambler rather than another 700. Not the answer you'd expect from this forum but i do have a soft spot for the duc
