The culture of scrambler motorcycles dates back to the middle of the twentieth century, when riders had to custom modify their bikes for seamless transition between road and track.
Back in the day, the movement had died out due to the introduction of the purpose built dirt models and resurfaced only 50 years later. Technically though, modern scramblers no longer play the purpose they used to, instead it is all about the looks, stripped down vintage style and raw retro appeal.
