Honda CB500 Based Scrambler Concept Launched


MAD Industries has launched a one-off custom Scrambler based on the Honda CB500 platform. Honda had commissioned the California-based Mangum Automotive Designs (MAD) and the consequence is a beautiful one-off Scrambler built in collaboration with Lossa Engineering.

 The front end is taken from the new Honda CBR600RR, counting 41mm upside-down fork and radial-increased front brake calipers. Rear postponement is a monoshock from Ohlins and a custom seat and body panels add to the custom Scrambler look.

 A new short muffler and blacked-out engine balance the Scrambler's looks. The seating position emerges to be more upright, thanks to a new handlebar, equipped with adjustable levers and new knobs.

Scramblers seem to be the present favourite among both custom builders and producers similar and this concept surely ticks the right boxes if Honda decides to take the manufacture route for a similar Scrambler model.

The design overall is neo-retro, with a round headlight underscoring the classic lines, but it gets the modern touch courtesy the LED lights. The CB500-based Scrambler is the result of two bikes built by MAD, the other one alike neo-retro design but with dissimilar paint and machined parts, as well as a new Yoshimura exhaust.
