YAMAHA XV950R ABS. Compact and stylish with a low seat height, the XV950R delivers a sporty ride while retaining the character that is a critical part of owning such an individual machine. Yamaha' flat line style and use of exposed metal accentuates the bike' pure simplicity while the V-twin motor provides spirited performance. The XV950R takes the relaxed attitude of a bobber and injects an element of sporting ability with upgraded suspension.

MCN overall review verdict: For an additional £300 more than the bobber style XV950R, Yamaha are offering customers full on café racer treatment. The Racer gets clip-on bars, new switchgear and levers, footrests, single seat cover (which is detachable for pillions), front cowling and side number plates. Yamaha has also changed the front and rear suspension travel offering 9mm more travel up front and 6mm at the rear. Other than the cosmetics, the primary changes are the ergonomics. The footrests are further back and higher, and the seat is 75mm higher too. The clip-ons pull your arms forward and the footrests and higher seat push your bum backwards, it’s a sportier, more involved riding position, which is perfect for the café style. It’s surprisingly more comfortable than it looks; the only downside ergonomically is the rather large, protruding air-filter as it’s intrusive and vibrates on your right knee cap.
