Good one, isn’t it - must have watched it 20 times myself. Fortnine always seem to do good reviews, with movie-like production values.

Other good ones are the Harley Street 750 and Low Rider S reviews, as well as the Honda Rebel one (aping one of my favourite films, The Warriors).......can you dig it??

Ryan F9 is one of my favorite reviewers. He always has awesome productions plus he gets super geeky! Of coarse I love the SCR review then the others I like are the Honda Africa Twin (Mad Max) and the Ural review.

Ryan F9's latest review (Tenere 700) is awesome! He loves the bike as do I although I still have not seen or sat on one. Chances are my SCR will get traded in on one at some point...

Sounds like SCRBen will soon be known as T7Ben...

No no no - ‘properly’ off-road styled bikes do nothing for me.

Like the end of that review says, unless you are going to actually take it off road, save yourself a bag of sand (grand) and go for one of the other options with an identical engine (FZ/MT07, Tracer or XSR700).....

If I was going to go for a bike with this engine, I’d actually be X-TributeBen, but that conjures up all sorts of images to me.....


Ironically - another bike Yamaha can’t seem to shift in the UK, and now available with a further grand off RRP.

I don't know anything about the new bikes on the market, but one of these stopped me dead in my tracks last time I walked thru my local dealer. The proportions are all wrong, but I still like it.

Oh God YES!! I saw that same bike at a local dealer a few months ago and I had the same reaction. Very Retro, but at that time also very expensive, I compare every new bike's price to the SCR, of course! DO IT, SCHU! DO IT!!!! Jevers
