yamaha SCR950


New SCR950. Born to find new ways

For 2017 Yamaha are set to expand their highly successful Sport Heritage segment with the arrival of new SCR950, a stylish and purposeful looking V-twin that captures the timeless spirit of the iconic street scrambler.

Back in the 1960s the street scrambler was the bike of choice for those riders who wanted a simple, stylish and rugged motorcycle that could rip it up around the city as well as handle weekend blasts into the countryside. These bikes epitomised the free and easy spirit of that influential decade, and their soul lives on in the new SCR950.

Powered by a pulsating, high-torque, air-cooled, V-twin engine that's fitted into a tubular steel chassis, this handsome new Yamaha street scrambler is aimed at today's generation of bikers who want a real motorcycle that is built for enjoyment.

Featuring wide, braced handlebars, aluminium rims and spoked wheels - as well as heavy-duty tyres and front fork boots - the new Yamaha SCR950 blends vintage cool with contemporary design and technology. A higher seat with a flat profile gives an elevated riding position with plenty of room for moving around - and there's also a new larger 17-inch rear wheel that contributes to the a higher riding position and gives increased ground clearance for an enhanced handling feeling.

Air-cooled, 60-degree, V-twin engine

Featuring an all-black finish, the compact 60-degree, air-cooled, V-twin engine produces a pulsating band of power with strong torque, making the SCR950 a great all round performer that's fun to ride in a variety of situations.

Its iconic V-twin layout underlines the SCR950s timeless retro looks, and on the inside this engine benefits from the very latest engineering. Equipped with lightweight forged pistons as well as an optimised crank mass and 4-valve heads with pent roof combustion chambers, this compact power plant delivers 79.5 Nm (8.1 kg-m) of torque at just 3,000 rpm. This class leading torque output gives the SCR950 rider the ability to accelerate strongly in every gear from low rpm, making this V-twin street scrambler a great performer in typical stop-start urban environments.

Tubular steel scrambler frame

Just like the original 1960s street scramblers, the SCR950 is equipped with a black-painted steel double cradle frame that underlines the bike's authentic heritage and rugged good looks. The subframe is designed to accommodate the higher dual seat featuring a flat profile that gives a wide choice of riding positions to suit everything from urban cruising through to fast highway blasts and weekend back roads scratching.

Wrap-around 2-into-1 exhaust, with upswept muffler

The SCR950's exhaust system features a 2-into-1 header pipe arrangement that flows into a short, upswept muffler that accentuates the bike's scrambler image. Fitted with a small heatshield and end cap, the muffler gives off a gutsy, low pitched exhaust note - and its integral 3-way catalytic converter clears EU4 emissions standards.

Scrambler design features

Street scramblers are all about simplicity, versatility and fun - and the SCR950's chassis has also been designed to deliver a comfortable and enjoyable riding experience. The wide handlebars feature a welded crossbar to underline the scrambler theme, and with a mildly backswept layout they give a relaxed and upright riding position together with a high degree of controllability.

The flangeless teardrop style fuel tank bears witness to the high build quality on this fashionable V-twin, and with a capacity of 13.2 litres it gives a useful riding range.

Aluminium rims and 17-inch rear wheel

The SCR950 is fitted with spoked wheels featuring aluminium rims - a must for any scrambler - and with their aggressive block pattern, the heavy-duty Bridgestone tyres are built to handle the street and the dirt. The SCR950 also benefits from a larger 17-inch spoked rear wheel, and this contributes towards achieving the higher 830mm seat height, whilst giving an enhanced handling feeling together with increased ground clearance

Smooth-action suspension

Equipped with 41mm tubes, the conventional front forks give 135mm of plush suspension action, and they feature durable rubber gaiters that keep dirt and dust out. At the back end the twin rear shocks feature piggyback reservoirs, while the damping and spring settings have been set by the factory to offer 110mm of smooth and stable rear wheel movement.

Other notable features on this high torque urban scrambler include 298mm wave style front and rear discs, as well as a circular LCD speedometer with a smoked lens - and for added practicality the SCR950 is equipped with a storage compartment under the new flat dual seat.

Born to find new ways

There's a new kind of motorcycle on the block. Inspired by the street scramblers of the 1960s, the SCR950 blends authentic design with modern technology to create a new kind of bike that's about good vibes and cool style.

Maybe you're returning to riding or trading up from a smaller bike? Either way the SCR950's rugged good looks, natural riding position and timeless style are hard to resist. Built to handle everything from city streets to unpaved trails, this urban scrambler is a great new way to enjoy two wheels.

With its pulsating V-twin engine and classic twin shock chassis, this iconic machine captures the spirit of motorcycling, and makes every ride a special occasion.

How does it work?

How much will it cost?
1. You provide a deposit

You then pay regular monthly repayments on the remaining balance plus one optional final repayment. The optional final repayment is based on the predicted value (GFV) at the end of the agreement plus a purchase fee. Interest is calculated on the total amount of credit (i.e. the cash price of the motorcycle less any deposit paid).
