Nimble seating profile will be big pull towards the SCR since there's a lot of people out there that can't find bikes that fit them perfectly, some left considering how to make seating ideal. Comparing the ergo's seen so far to the Bolt its based off of, the SCR should suit a wide range of riders.

The LCD screen I'm not too concerned about, I'm sure there was a reason behind it. But the ergo's definitely do look well thought out. Either way people will still be making seat changes but this does help suit a wider range.

Seat changes are common but you still need to have a good base to mount the seat too. With the how narrow the original seat is, people with small inseams shouldn't have a problem with the scr950.

The seat does narrow down near the gas tank for better ergonomics and you are sitting pretty upright too. I like this commercial more than the US one, more informative instead of just showing us shots of the Scrambler life.

It definitely is always nice when they provide you with some sort of information within the commercials rather than just making you stare at it moving and not saying anything about it lol

Indeed. I prefer either information or something creative. Something informative will do well with attracting the average rider, then you have the creative end which will pull in just about anyone and still the enthusiasts just as much as anyone else.

Color options aren't that good but for now they'll do. I might look into getting a custom color scheme done. Just not sure where to start when it comes to colors and design.

Thankfully there aren't too many panels to paint. I can see myself stripping it down and painting it quite often to be honest lol

I wouldn't even bother painting, rather wrap it since you can easily undo a wrap compared to paint which if you paint it something other than OEM...can devalue it. Plus there are so many colors to choose from if you decide to go the wrap route. Unlike paint, you can do it yourself and could look as good as a pro...can't say the same as paint.

Less of a pain to wrap the tank instead of paint, if you paint it, you'll need to completely remove the tank from the bike along with any other fairing pieces. The Yamaha stock paints are fine but I think matte green would give it a more rustic look.

It definitely is a lot easier and cheaper, however, there's something about the depth in paint that really draws me in. In regards to devaluing it, I'm not worried about that one bit. These aren't motorcycles that'll appreciate with time. Definitely not an investment.

Well it all depends on what you want to do and those are good reasons for going the paint route. It's just not for everyone, but fact is wrapping is a quick and great solution, a very forgiving one.

That's true. Wrapping gives you the ease of changing it a lot more constantly whilst preserving a pristine like new finish underneath.

SOHC weighs less, more compact, has better acceleration and it costs less. Even though the DOHC setup has greater performance modification potential, the thing is bigger and costs more to produce since it's more complex. Single over head camshaft would be the better choice for a more road orientated bike like the scr950.
