2015 Scorpas redesigned

Look pretty cool, like an orange Sherco with the fuel/air box in traditional locations. Ryan Young just got new one in and sounds impressed with it.

Sherco makes the motor now. Yes- the old ones were Yamaha.

Sherco owns Scorpa? Is that right?

And the even older ones were Rotax.

That would explain why most of the parts (forks, wheels, motor, exhaust, rear suspension) appear to be the exact same are from the Sherco. Still pretty cool looking bike.

It`s a nice looking bike except for the mid 90`s orange. Camo green or desert tan would be more in line to our crazy world. At least it wasn`t late 80`s pink, white and blue! Too much like the `95 Fantic failure or the ugliest Beta ever 1996.

I sold at least eight orange pumpkins. After replacing the manifolds they actually ran like a Fantic. The suspension was good. But replacing the seat after a bad crash was not cost effective. I loved the power valve! Ugly!
