Yes, a fun new thread to address repeat questions regarding what is different between the Sherco and Scorpa trials models. Brilliant marketing strategy, really. Color and name connotations are powerful, psychologically. KTM orange to match one's EXC, or the glowing blue and yellow befitting the gorgeous blonde women who compete on them at the world level Your choice of color. If only the parent company could figure out how to do a red-white-silver Sherco without high production costs and inventory burdens, I suppose they'd net some loyal Gasser-color guys too! GasGas used to do that, somewhat, and it's an expensive way to market the same bike. We know the Sherco-Scorpa (same parent company) bikes are substantially the same. "A Sherco in two colors," I have sometimes quipped. But having two 2017 Shercos and a 2017 Scorpa in the shop is revealing more differences in detail. It's more on the lines of different way to do the same thing, but different, nonetheless. Aside from the obvious paint, stickers, and anodize differences, the SC standard model comes with 40mm Marzocchi forks, which means larger-bore triple clamps and a two-piece front axle. Sherco ST standard and Factory models, and Scorpa Factory models use two versions of the 39mm Tech fork, with steel stanchions for standard and hard coated aluminum stanchions for Factory models. Why Marzocchis? The parent company bought out the remaining stock of Marzocchi forks with the fancy SKF greenish seals intended for GasGas production just before GasGas went poof in `15. These aluminum stanchion 'Zokes should continue to show up on the SC until the inventory is used up. Fine working forks. The standard models of both use the Olle (oh-yeh) R16V shock. The Factory models differ: Ohlins for Sherco and Reiger for Scorpa. All shocks are interchangeable between the models. The frames are likely same jig specs but they are different in tube and stamping shapes. Sherco is wider in the tank area, and Scorpa is wider over the carburetor. The plastic, from subframe/airbox to fenders is from different-shape molds. Scorpa has a front fastener in the gas tank. Sherco has no fasteners affixing the tank. Cable and hose routing through the steering head area is different. Some speculate the flashing of the eProms (ignition map) of the modules may be different. I don't know. It's an easy swap of modules, if you are curious. They all use the Hidria (pronounced and sometimes written as Idria) so-called 'dual spark' ignition. 'Dual spark' is marketing slather, as these units do not have two plugs per cylinder. It's like "new transmission" when one part in an assembly of 20 is changed! The fork brace fender mounts are different. Not sure if that is from the fender being different, or from the Marzocchi forks. Disc cover is also different on the SC as part of the no-same-plastic theme. The Scorpa has a plastic bit at the front of the tank. The tank sits on that and the M6 clip for the single front tank fastener to go into. There is also has something for the gas cap vent to plug into and hoses and wires to pass through, Montesa-like. The Sherco lacks all that and is simpler, but the vent hose sometimes doesn't know where to hang out. The tank is simply held in place by the subframe and frame at the steering head. The Sherco design is based on the format of the 2015 Scorpa Twenty, but being a year later, perhaps Sherco simplified this area to get rid of more parts, which is the longstanding design trend. Simplify, integrate, and reduce cost! Another odd bit is the Scorpa SC comes with a standard kill switch, not a lanyard kill switch. And finally, the `17 Sherco picked up 6656 (pair) and 6657 (pair) stick-on black elastomer fork stops, positioned on the widest, stamped steel frame bulge. Like the 2016 Sherco, the 2017 SC does not have fork stops, just the transparent sticker on the fork tube. I never had any issues on my `16, but the lack of resilient stops could ding the frame hard in a slap-type crash. This lack can bug some pickybrains, even if the statistical probability of a frame-dinging crash is in the minority. The Scorpa frame is widest on the frame tubes where the fork tubes contact, not on the flatter stamping as on the Sherco. It is possible the two sets of Sherco parts will stick onto, and stay on, the more curved Scorpa frame tubes. Simple to order the parts from RYP or your source and give them a shot. Please report on the results. More later, and please add to this. I know I will miss something.
