Born with performance

Now Yamaha is opening the door to the world of customization to every rider with the XV950– a bobber that encapsulates the character and personality of those original back street creations in a new neo retro Japanese look.

Compact and stylish with a low seat height, the XV950 delivers a refined and agile ride while retaining the character that is a critical part of owning such an individual machine. Yamaha’s flat line style and use of exposed metal components accentuates the bike’s pure simplicity while the V-twin motor provides spirited performance and unquestioned reliability. Stripped back and stylish, the XV950 provides a perfect entry into the world of customization.
