SCR950 : Yamaha’s Scrambling the Genre

2017 Yamaha SCR950In a surprise move Yamaha has unveiled another new retro themed model the SCR950 which takes the  942 cc air-cooled V-twin from the Bolt and sticks it in a scrambler themed chassis with an upright riding stance which in itself will appeal to riders who want a little more comfort than provided by the low slung Bolt. Features of the bike include a flangeless tank, 5 speed transmission connected to a bet drive,blocky rubber on aluminum spoke rims and old school graphics and colours. Yamaha is ready to feed the customizing beast with a long list of accessories for the bike that range from leather saddlebags to a myriad of brass trim items, a skid plate, performance shocks and windshields. Just as well the retail price is listed as $10,199 as it would be possible to spend that much again in accessories. see Yamaha’s video for the bike here.
