Friday bike

Yamaha SCR950

Another new bike I really like the look of, the Yamaha SCR 950. Powered by a 942cc V twin engine with belt final drive, (based on their XV950), the SCR has a sort of 60s 'street scrambler' look. Yamaha use the phrase 'Sports Heritage'!

It's been on sale in the US since the summer, but will be coming to the UK, and probably other European countries, in February next year. Price in the US is $8,699 = £6998 = 7785 Euros, probably be different when it arrives due to local taxes and the continued decline of the pound.
