Born to break rules
Inspired by the cool Yard Built specials created for Yamaha by the world's leading custom builders, the XV950 Racer is aimed at today's generation of free thinking riders who want a raw and authentic bike that's ready to customize.
With its torque-rich V-twin engine, sports riding position and timeless good looks, the bold XV950 Racer brings together low rider style with café racer attitude to create a new kind of gutsy and light handling bike that defies convention. Because rules were made to be broken.
