Brat Style took a SCR950 and turned it into a scrambler beast for improved off road prowess. Personally, I'm not a fan but someone may like the retro look.

No front fender & no skid plate. Knobby front tire? I don't think I've ever seen a bike starter KO-ed by a rock before. I think I'll sit this one out and let someone else have that honor.

I expected them to raise the ground clearance an add on a few protective panels if they were going to take it off road. Really, I think they went too far because it doesn't even remind me of the SCR950 anymore.

That's just one rock of pothole away from a bad time, do have to give them points for a nice set of knobbies but that's pretty much it. Doesn't look like it was designed for reliability and real world use, more for sitting on a stand to look pretty.

I've just had a thought, won't those pipes get hot after an hour or two of riding and there's no head shield protecting your thigh from it.

His leg isn't flush against the exhaust pipes so it should be fine, but if you were to make an exhaust modification like that yourself, I'd assume you would heat wrap it yourself.

I don't know about anyone else here but it would be a good excuse for going with shorter pipes down the road. But starting off it wouldn't be the first thing I'll do. here's what I have in mind:

I can't imagine that sounding like anything but a high pitched whine. But if it was painted black to match the body then the scr950 would look pretty clean.

I don't think it'll get a high pitched whine. Just ridiculously and obnoxiously loud but with a raspy more on the deeper side tone.

Wouldn't it look nice if they engraved the engine cover to match the air cleaner? They generally look a little bland anyways.
