Features

Additional Features

  • 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 LIGHTING: 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.

Chassis / Suspension

  • 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 allows the rider to move easily to adapt to different riding styles.
  • HANDLING-FOCUSED FRAME: A double-cradle frame enhances city riding enjoyment thanks to an engine mounted to the frame with a rigid mount system that provides precise handling.
  • ADVANCED SUSPENSION: The beefy front 41mm fork tubes offer excellent suspension performance across a wide range of surfaces. The twin rear shocks—which include piggyback-style gas chambers—have been tuned to provide great comfort and handling while contributing to the machine’s stylish low profile.
  • LOW MAINTENANCE BELT DRIVE: A compact belt drive contributes to the slim and clean look of the rear end. The belt has a carbon-fiber core which adds strength for long-lasting durability.
  • POWERFUL BRAKING: The 298mm front disc brake and 298mm rear disc brake both use wave rotors, the style usually found on sport bikes. The front brake uses a floating-mount for great heat-distortion resistance, contributing to excellent braking performance.
  • DURABLE SPOKED WHEELS AND TIRES: Strong aluminum rims and spoked wheels are ready to handle harsh road conditions, while rugged, block-pattern 19-inch front and 17-inch rear tires provide an ideal balance of grip, durability and agile handling.

Engine

  • MODERN AIR-COOLED V-TWIN: The SCR950‘s 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 designed to provide strong power and superior low-end torque, ideal for exploring roads off the beaten track and powering out of tight corners.
  • ADVANCAED CYLINDER DESIGN: The pent-roof combustion chamber shape was precisely engineered to direct the fuel/air charge to the center of the piston for more efficient combustion and maximum power. Ceramic-composite plated cylinders provide excellent heat dissipation and reduced oil consumption, while forged aluminum pistons use a lightweight and high-strength design that contributes to reduced vibration.
  • LOW FRICTION INTERNALS: To keep friction loss to a minimum, increase durability and help the engine achieve the ideal performance characteristics, special roller-type rocker arms with needle bearings are used.
  • FUEL INJECTION: Sophisticated twin bore fuel injection is used on the SCR to deliver excellent throttle response. 3D maps for ignition timing and fuel injection deliver outstanding acceleration in the mid- and low-speed ranges.
  • SMOOTH SHIFTING 5-SPEED TRANSMISSION: The SCR950’s wet multiplate clutch system uses a rubber damper to absorb shocks and smoothly transfer power, while a wide-ratio five-speed transmission makes the most of the torque of the big V-twin to provide both relaxed gear ratios and plenty of thrust on demand.
  • COMPACT AIR CLEANER: The stainless steel air cleaner cover provides a “raw metal” look that accentuates the SCR950’s distinctive styling. In addition, the air cleaner design provides great intake efficiency and enhanced torque characteristics.
  • 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. The minimalist-style exhaust system delivers a throaty and pleasing exhaust note.
