Having sold out its 150 limited edition Spitfire models after the Carole Nash MCN Show in February, the British firm CCM has revealed their new Spitfire Scrambler at the Bike Shed Show this weekend. It looks like it's got serious potential.
The original Spitfire was unveiled in February and got sold out in a week's time. The original Spitfire was handmade and had a tempting price, attractive look and the promise of a competent performance with its 600cc. This made the company produce Spitfire Scrambler. And the Spitfire Scrambler looks staggering.
Here's a list of the key features of the new CCM Spitfire Scrambler:
The new Spitfire Scrambler carries the 55bhp 600cc engine and frame as the previous Spitfire model, which had a rampant success and paved way for the new Spitfire Scrambler version. The frame on the Spitfire is welded by hand, which is made from high tensile T45 British Steel. But it has got an altered rear subframe and has got a 17-inch rear wheel, in place of 19-inch, found on the original Spitfire.
The Spitfire Scrambler has got improved ground clearance, fully-adjustable suspension for longer travel, a different sub-frame and a new upswept exhaust, over the Spitfire originals. New wheels with dual purpose tires act as an added credential. Other added features are elevated off-road handlebars, a protective sump guard, and a two-tone dual seat. Everyone believes that the Spitfire Scrambler will have similar components like the original Spitfire along with few changes, sustaining the off-roading ability of the scrambler.
The new Spitfire Scrambler is priced at £8995 (plus £279 OTR charges) on the road. You can be assured that the Spitfire Scrambler will also be a limited edition model like the Spitfire itself. So, if you wish to own one, you’ll have to be very quick because most of the scramblers have already been sold. However, John Grogan, Sales and Marketing Manager at CCM said that the production will definitely increase more than 150 units of the original Spitfire, and the Scrambler will exist as an exceptional series of motorcycles.
