Flat seat with forward riding position
The SCR950 is equipped with a slim and flat seat that gives an elevated riding position with plenty of freedom of movement. Together with the fitment of a larger diameter 17-inch rear wheel, the SCR's scrambler natural ergonomics are designed to ensure increased controllability combined with high levels of comfort.
Spoked wheels with aluminium rims
Throughout the SCR950 you'll find that this beautifully finished scrambler has been manufactured using quality materials that underline its timeless style. To remain true to the original street scrambler design, spoked wheels with lightweight aluminium rims are featured, with a 19-inch front and 17-inch rear.
To reinforce its classic scrambler looks the SCR950 is fitted with Bridgestone TW tyres with a muscular block pattern that's designed to give plenty of grip on the street as well as being able to handle moderate off road riding. With a 100-90/19 front tyre and wide 140-80/17 rear tyre, this urban scrambler is built to handle a variety of surfaces.
Wide handlebars with cross brace
One of the key characteristics of this new urban scrambler is its comfortable and upright riding position created by the seat / handlebar / footrest relationship. As well as giving a natural posture, the wide handlebars also ensure easier low speed steering - and for added strength, these 22.2mm steel handlebars feature a cross brace.
This bike is built to handle the surprises that urban roads can throw at you, including cobbles and potholes - and it's also ready to take on unpaved surfaces when you want to escape from the city. The twin shock rear suspension units run with special settings to ensure balanced handling performance - while the 41mm forks feature boots to keep out dirt.
When you've been around bikes for a while you'll appreciate the little details, and the SCR950 is one motorcycle that is not going to disappoint! From the steel front and rear mudguards through to the spoked aluminium wheels and round LCD speedometer, quality is evident throughout.
Flangeless fuel tank
Yamaha's designers have made sure that every element of the SCR950 is true to the spirit of the original 60's scramblers. Featuring flat sides and a flat upper surface, the flangeless fuel tank emphasizes the quality and attention to detail - and with a capacity of 13.2 litres you'll get a good range between refills.
Even scrambler riders like to carry a few odds and ends with them when they're out for a blast around the city or along a dirt road, and you'll find a handy compartment under the seat that's ideal for storing personal items.
The SCR950's beautifully finished black engine is the bike's focal point, and it's both a work of art and an impressive piece of engineering. The classic 60-degree, V-twin, air-cooled design gives a timeless look, while its high-tech internals deliver the pulsating performance and strong torque that make this scrambler a joy to ride and a pleasure to own.
