  • 2017-2018: Red, black

The 2015 XV950 Racer is essentially the same bike but gets you a mini fairing, cast Aluminium wheels, lower front indicators, lower clip-on bars and pillion seat hump/cover.

Likewise the XV950R is basically the same but with higher bars than the racer, a bobber seat, no side panels and 12-spoke cast wheels.
