Yamaha's Sport Heritage models have truly captured the imagination of those riders who appreciate characterful motorcycles that combine authentic heritage with modern technology and timeless style.
Each one of these motorcycles has been developed using our 'Faster Sons' philosophy, in which we create exciting and individually styled bikes that pay homage to classic designs from our past while giving you modern performance and riding experience.
For 2016 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 epitomized 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 freedom of movement - and there's also a new larger 17-inch rear wheel that gives a higher riding position and increased ground clearance for an enhanced handling feeling.
