Big sales suc­cess prompts off-road ready Scrambler

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

CCM re­vealed their lim­it­ededi­tion Spitfire at the Ca­role Nash MCN Show in Fe­bru­ary – and just one week later they had sold all 150 units and the phones are still ring­ing.

Rather than build a load more the same and de­tract from the Spitfire’s ex­clu­siv­ity the Bri­tish firm have an­nounced a Scrambler ver­sion.

“It’s go­ing to be based on the Spitfire chas­sis but it’s go­ing to have proper off-road ca­pa­bil­ity,” says John Dro­gan, Sales and Mar­ket­ing Man­ager at CCM.

“The Scrambler will have longer travel sus­pen­sion, in­creased ground clear­ance, a dif­fer­ent sub­frame and high-level ex­hausts. Al­though it won’t be a huge task to trans­form it, we’ve re­cruited two new de­sign en­gi­neers so it doesn’t de­lay our 600 Ad­ven­ture launch and we’ll be re­cruit­ing one more.”

Dro­gan says the Spitfire Scrambler won’t be launched un­til later this year as they still have the ac­ces­sories and add-ons range to com­plete for the stan­dard Spitfire.

With the back­ground CCM have in off-road­ers and light­weight ad­ven­ture bikes, the bike could take on the likes of Du­cati’s new Desert Sled.
