The £300 cheaper and 4kg lighter 2014-2016 XV950 was the same bike but with simpler rear suspension, no ABS or tank graphics and a cheaper finish to the seat.
The 2015 XV950 Racer is the same bike but gets you the flyscreen, fork covers, lower front indicators, lower clip-on bars, a 75mm higher seat, Aluminium side panels and pillion seat hump/cover
The 2017 SCR950 is a scrambler style XV950R, with a flat seat, wire spoked wheels (17" at the back), fork covers, taller braced handlebars and higher rear mudguard.
