What Is It?

The Yamaha XV950 is an A2 licence friendly cruiser style bike and is powered by an air-cooled 942 cc 60° V-Twin engine, producing 51 bhp at 5,500 rpm and maximum torque at just 3,000 rpm.

  • Steel tubular frame with belt final drive
  • 298 mm wavy disc up front with two piston caliper

  • 41 mm KYB fork
  • Dual rear KYB shocks with 110 mm travel
  • 2->1 exhaust system
  • LED tail light, self cancelling indicators
  • 5 speed gearbox

The engine, from the XVS950 Midnight Star, is a stressed member of the frame and the air intake is on the right side of the engine adding to the retro looks. The 12-spoke 19" front wheel takes a 100/90 tyre and the rear 16" a 150/80.
