2014 Scorpa

Recommended Posts

I think the bike looks great and would love to see one in the flesh and try one. Not everyone likes the Sherco configuration with fuel tank not in the conventional place. I also like the fact that the radiator is better protected, plus it's not yellow.

I've just remembered why I stopped paying attention to or contributing to the forum. there's a stalker on here. He lurks around waiting to pounce with the biggest load of self opinionated arrogant pish you're ever likely to hear.

I'm sure you're correct, those that don't care for the Sherco set may take a good look at the Scorpa set up.

I like you're thoughts on the "stalker", I liken it to a "cyber bully".

Really??? Maybe you should look at your previous posts you don't even know what engine is in it?

So tell me what part of R&D were you part of and in truth I suspect in truth you haven't ridden one, maybe best not to slate a bike until at least someone has thrown a leg over one and given feedback?

As I have said it looks good and at the right price with the right importer and dealer network it would sell..............................

If you ask a stupid question you get a stupid answer. id say very few have rode this bike and for the record i havent slated this bike at all.

in otherwords wind your neck in and get your facts right.

I simply asked IF??? you are part of R&D then you would know what year engine is in it? Surely you have ridden one if you were part of the R&D, but you seem to know very little about the bike to tell us?

As far as telling me to wind my neck in, I don't know you and you don't know me but I left those playground comments many years ago?

Back to the Scorpa I have said with so few players in the market then it is good to see them still going, I wonder what sales are like in other countries because in the UK not many units would be sold. They must think it is it is viable to continue production................but for how long?

But what has that to do with the scorpa in particular and the trials market in general? Surely as far as we are concerned an extra company in our crowded market isn't good for anyone?

I would argue we have as much choice now as ever we have at any given time since 1965.

Ossa Jtg Montesa and Scorpa will all struggle to sell any kind of quantity this year. There are no extra buyers out there.

Sherco-Scorpa

ktm-husky

There are so many more examples outside of motorcycles.

I feel you are repeating yourself and the similarities to KTM and Husqvarna are tenuous in the extreme, and do not relate at all to their history, industrial position or markets.

Clearly as the Sherco importer you are pushing and advocating their subsidiary, which smells of commercialism.

You are probably spot on there Andrew, but Scorpa think it is viable and keep producing how that effects bike sales in the market place is up to their marketing. If all goes belly up and we are left with Gas Gas and Beta then that opens a whole new debate?

If the price was right they would sell, but that won't happen, will they produce a 2015 model.........well who knows but you wouldn't bet on them not doing one?

It makes little sense to build bikes these days in this crowded market .......but for many of these companies and the employees, its all they know . Its their life.

As was pointed out to me recently - Without trials manufacturers being enthusiasts we pretty much would be left with just a couple of makes.

Wouldnt it be boring without these enthused bike builders :)

It could be that the last few years of liitle activity from scorpa has been building up to this bike- I see no reason for it not sell and the question i ask is will it take away any of shercos sales?

you asked why Scorpa, I answered, I have nothing to do with Scorpa, seems you constantly want to stir something up, go away and get a life

I like the looks of the bike, so what,
