Heavy-duty tyres

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.

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.

Scrambler suspension

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.

Flangleless 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.

Underseat storage

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.
