YOU'RE looking at Husqvarna's latest concept, the MOAB Scrambler.

Everyone's going for a slice of the recently re-invented Scrambler market. You just can't keep that '60s style down, you know? This latest effort is styled on Steve McQueen's H400.

Husqvarna, now owned by BMW, say the bike can 'trace its origins to legendary bikes that are milestones of history'. Whatever that means.

Back in the real world, the concept is based heavily on the BMW 650GS, powered by a 650cc lump, held in place by a perimeter frame and progressive-link swingarm. It sits on 17" wheels with semi-knobbly tyres, has super-wide bars and a coffin seat. Looks like it could be a laugh.

Is that a small rip in the seat cover?

I like the forks, tank, wheels, mudguard, engine but the frame, swing arm and seat suck.
Put your hand over the back of the bike and it looks fine, then cover the front, Ha see what I mean
