This video of a custom SCR950 was taken at the 2017 Osaka Motorcycle Show and it looks to be styled after the Arai helmet with a lot of black out bits. What's interesting is the custom seat and the under seat fender with matching white and red paint.

Could be another set not made specifically for the SCR950? Hard to tell when the video doesn't go to the rear.
Looks like the one on the left has two gauges instead of one? Depending on what they display, I'm sure there are people out there who would want one.

Looks like the tires were designed for wet road usage, doesn't really make sens to me when I think it'll look and perform better with dual purpose tires. Or I'm just biased because I abhor riding on wet roads.

The custom SCR950 looks like it can go on and off-road, may as well give it a set of matching tires.

With a tendency to watch videos in other languages with minimal understanding, I did come across a funny nugget from a Japanese review when it came to the SCR950's ride vibration.

He could feel the engine's vibration through the seat and joked that its purpose was to increase your ride experience to encompass your five sense. There's only one answer as to what the fifth sense is. :grin2: But it could be down to your ride position too.

I know what you mean, I can't understand why you'd want to have a primarily wet surface focused tire in a place where it's not forever raining kinda thing?

It seems like the SCR950 is really popular in Japan and Korea because a lot of the shared pictures I see on social media sites are primarily from those two countries, meaning the aftermarkets there should be hard at work developing model specific parts!

I think its been like that in the eastern part of the world a lot, which goes for a lot of new products that some markets in the west are getting. Noticed the same thing with ADV bikes elsewhere in the world and now they are blowing up here.

Wish they didn't spend so much time focusing on the front end and actually did a walk around and took a closer look at all the other modifications and changes that were made.
I was thinking the same thing during the entire video .
