Yamaha are set to release a new model to take on Triumph and Ducati in the scrambler department.

The SCR950 Scrambler will have the following key features

  • Modern Air-Cooled V-Twin
    The 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. 
  • 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 and a pleasing exhaust note.
  • 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 allow the rider to move easily to adapt to different riding styles.
  • Handling-Focused Chassis
    A double-cradle frame features sporty geometry for nimble, responsive handling in any environment. The front and rear suspension systems are tuned to provide great comfort and handling while contributing to the machine’s stylish low profile.

There will be no doubt that there will be a number of aftermarket parts available too.  Allowing the rider to customise the bike to their liking.


The most notable surprise to me was yamaha opting for a belt drive.  Will obviously provide one less thing to maintain for newer riders.


From these latest pics and the marketing vid it looks the goods and a little cheaper than it's competitors models.  Not sure when it'll hit Australian shores but if you dig this type of look then it could be a great option.
