Yamaha’s Sport Heritage line up is considered to be one of the best categories in the motorbike world. It consists of, some of the desired bikes like VMAX, XSR 900 and SR400. Along with that 2017 SCR950 has also found a slot in there. This street motorcycle has already won many hearts at various bike exhibitions and now readies to take the roads.
This V-twin based motorcycle is a combination of scrambler styling, vintage sports bike built with latest engineering. It sits on 942cc, 60-degree, air-cooled, fuel injector engine. A double-cradle frame is used as the main chassis, which provides superior handling and sporty appearance to the motorcycle. The engine is tuned for multi-purpose riding. It delivers its best power output whether it is gravel off roads or high speed tarmac. Engine is mated with a 5-speed gearbox, which uses a belt for transmitting power to the rear wheels.
Yamaha has worked a lot to ensure this SCR950 to stand as a true Scrambler in all terms. For that they have used low-profile bench seats, fork boots and retro-side number plates. Not only that, it has an upright steel off-road handle bar along with centrally mounted foot pegs, which allows the rider to move easily and to adapt different riding positions. Moreover, the vintage-enduro styled fender is also used to enhance its cosmetic beauty. The LED lighting at the rear gives “neo-retro” styling from the back.
Suspension system of this scrambler consists of a 41mm fork, with gaiters at the front and twin-rear shocks at the rear provides great comfort and also helps to maintain the stylish low profile of this machine. The braking of this bike consists of 298mm wave-style disc at the front and back, which gives superior stopping force. SCR uses strong aluminium rims and spoked wheels for maximum durability with 19-inch and 17-inch, block pattern tyres at the rear and front respectively. It helps in superior road grip and agile handling of the bike.
SCR 950 is available in Charcoal Silver and Rapid Red colours. The pricing of this model starts from $8,700 USD. It may took more that 2 years to launch at the Indian market.
It is the latest addition to the Yamaha’s Sport Heritage line up.
