CCM ( Clews Competition Machines) has revealed the Spitfire Scrambler at the Bike Shed Show. The Spitfire Scrambler uses the same hand-made steel trellis frame as the Spitfire although the subframe is slightly different to account for the new twin, high-level exhaust. The Scrambler also has increased ground clearance over the Spitfire, thanks to longer-travel fully-adjustable suspension. Adding to the off-road credentials are new wheels (19in front, 17in rear) shod with dual-purpose tyres. Completing the look are a set of raised off-road handlebars, a purposeful sump guard and other rugged styling features, such as a new two-tone dual seat. Seat height is just 830mm and the dry weight is a featherweight 123kg.
The rest of the componentry, such as the Brembo brakes and 55bhp 600cc single-cylinder engine are all shared with the Spitfire, the rampant success of which made this new Scrambler version possible. The Scrambler is priced at £8995 (plus £279 OTR charges), with production set to commence later in the year and production will be limited to just 250 units ( out of which 100 units have already been sold).
