Yamaha’s New Scrambler
Yamaha gets in on the scrambler scene with this new US-only model and indicates that it might release it globally. The scrambler-style SCR950 is heavily based on the XV950 which is a Bobber-style custom bike that’s powered by a 942cc air-cooled SOHC four-valve 60-degree V-twin engine.
Currently the engine in the XV950 isn’t Euro4 compliant, which is why the SCR950 is only being offered in America for now. The SCR950 uses the same key ingredients as the XV950, with the same frame and engine. Some of the changes that put it in to scrambler territory include a new higher back end and seat, higher and wider bars, a number board, fork gaiters and wire-spoked wheels.
