The SR400 and SR500 have a less noble engine than the previous models but they remain very popular bases and full of quality.
This superb street scrambler preparation by Daniel Peter's seen on BIKEEXIF demonstrates this:
This basic type is cheaper than the previously presented models.
The Kawasaki W650 is very popular in Japan and gives beautiful scramblers.
But the French are not left out, as Felix Motocyclettes proves with this superb achievement:
We love this exhaust line which is part of the panoply of the perfect scrambler.
The trail / enduro bases to make a scrambler
Starting from this type of motorcycle to carry out your scrambler project allows you to have a truly all-terrain motorcycle. Here the goal will be to civilize the motorcycle, to make it pleasant on the road as much as on the roads.
Trails of this type have the advantage of having simple and effective mechanics. The engines are often large, very torquey single cylinders.
In addition, the budget to acquire this base is lower compared to conventional bases.

The enduro bases create higher perched scramblers, this is ideal for those who want to do off-road more often .
The basic roadsters to make a scrambler:
This type of motorcycle is more and more appreciated as part of the creation of a scrambler . We understand why. Their engines are more efficient, the design is newer and the prices are very affordable.
This type of motorcycle may require more work to be transformed into a "real" scrambler compared to a trail or a classic.
HONDA 600 HORNET
The CB600F called Hornet is one of the most famous roadsters. Its reputation speaks for itself.
With the development of personalization, amateur or professional trainers are increasingly turning to more original models in order to transform them.
