Yamaha continues to expand its range Sport Heritage presenting SCR950. Practically the scrambler version of XV950 with which it shares much of its mechanical and chassis.
If it seems to observe something already seen on these pages? no you are wrong, in fact, the SCR is heavily inspired by the work done by Greg Hageman, as I had shown well this old post 3 years ago
Classic Scrambler Styling
The SCR950™ calls back to the past with its low-profile bench seat, retro-racing side number plates, fork boots and bold color accents. Modern engineering meets timeless scrambler style.
Modern Air-Cooled V-Twin
The 58-cubic-inch (942cc) engine is an air-cooled SOHC 60° V-twin with four valves per cylinder, a pent-roof-shaped combustion chamber, and 9.0:1 compression ratio. The engine is ideal for exploring unpaved roads off the beaten track and powering out of tight corners.
Unique Upswept Exhaust System
A 2-into-1 exhaust pipe layout on the right side of the engine contributes to the lively performance and styling of the machine, with an upswept muffler for improved ground clearance and a pleasing exhaust note.
Inviting, Flexible Ergonomics
The SCR950 puts the rider in a position of control to handle whatever the road throws at them. A wide and tall crossbar-type handlebar creates light steering feel, while centrally-mounted footpegs and a long, flat seat allow the rider to move easily to adapt to different riding styles.
A double-cradle frame features sporty geometry for nimble, responsive handling in any environment. The front and rear suspension systems are tuned to provide great comfort and handling while contributing to the machine’s stylish low profile.
LED rear taillight looks cool and adds to the stylish “neo-retro” appeal. High-mounted turn signals improve visibility and boost the classic styling lines.
Clean Detailing and Real Steel Fenders
Steel front and rear fenders are ideal for personalization, including paint and customization, while a flangeless fuel tank design displays Yamaha’s attention to detail and clean design.
