2018 SCR950 Price and Reviews Specs- All of us can’t emphasize enough how impressed we’ve been with Yamaha’s product planning over the past 4 – 5 years. The tuning-fork company has done a great job creating new platforms, and then building variations of them that appeal to a large variety of buyers. And has hauled away several Ten Best awards along the way. Take the brand-new SCR950 for instance, this Bolt-based scrambler takes on an totally new personality despite sharing a lot of that cruiser’s core components.
So, what exactly is a scrambler suitable for anyway? Looking returning to a foregone era when there wasn’t today’s market specialization, if you wished to ride the dirt you took your plain-ol’ motor bike pryed on some large tires, put on long-travel suspension and launched off in to the desert. Riders of that age didn’t know that they needed a 150-mph ADV bike with 10 inches of travel and cruise control, because that didn’t exist yet. Things were simple, and people had fun on what they had.
Although Yamaha has been making a habit lately of building incredibly fun, surprisingly affordable machines that make you just want to get out and drive. After spending a good day in the saddle of the SCR950 riding around the mountains near North park, I can report that Yamaha has once again nailed the less-is-more formulation.
