    Fuel-injected V-twin engine

    The air-cooled 60-degree V-twin engine produces 80Nm of torque at 3,000rpm, making it ideal for urban use as well as spirited performance outside of the city’s limits. With a capacity of 58-cubic-inches (942cc) the motor’s cylinders have a composite plating while the piston is built from forged aluminium for reliability as well as performance.

    Revised intake system

    Designed for outstanding efficiency and to contribute to the pure look of the bike, the new compact air cleaner is located on the right side of the motor. Flow analysis and road test evaluations have demonstrated this new style of air cleaner gives the XV950R motor excellent torque characteristics at low revs.

    Re-modeled exhaust system and 3D ECU maps

    New 3D maps for the ignition timing and fuel injection increase the V-twin engine’s already excellent acceleration in the mid and low-speed ranges, optimizing its urban performance. To match this new fuel mapping, and further boost low to mid-range acceleration, the XV950R also features a newly designed 2-into-1 exhaust pipe layout.

    New double cradle steel frame

    The V-twin engine has a rigid mount system to transfer the motor’s pulse through to the rider. A short wheelbase provides a light and agile ride for maximum maneuverability as well as a neutral and stable feeling when cruising. 41mm conventional style forks compliment the traditional look of the adjustable twin piggy back shock absorbers.

    New 12-spoke wheels with wave discs

    To keep the bobber look, the XV950R utilizes newly designed 12-spoke cast wheels in 100/90-19 size front and 150/80-16 size rear. Together with the sporty suspension and floating rotor 298mm wave discs, these wheel and tyre sizes offer the optimum balance of performance, grip and feeling from the road’s surface. ABS is standard fitment.

    Slim and stripped down look

    Yamaha’s unique flat line style and use of exposed metal components accentuates the bike’s pure simplicity while the V-twin motor gives a compact heart to the motorcycle. The XV950R has a raw metallic image while remaining simple in its design and sporty in its performance.

    Headlight, teardrop fuel tank and buckskin-look seat cover

    The single round headlight, jewelry-look round LED rear light, use of stainless steel highlights and cut-down steel fenders all accentuate the XV950R’s bobber look. A 12 litre teardrop fuel tank with a central stripe of paint and a buckskin-look seat cover differentiates the sporier XV950R from the XV950 model.

    Rubber damped clutch to reduce rider fatigue

    To aid urban use a rubber damper is incorporated within the clutch mechanism, helping to reduce rider fatigue during frequent use.
