Since by now most of us should be familiar with the SCR950 with all the information that's out on it currently, what exactly about it do you like and/or dislike?

To start this thread off, it's a GOOD looking bike. Based off the Bolt, Yamaha did a great job turning it into a real Scrambler, the skid plate, knobbier tires, being a couple things that build its character and stand out to me.

Some may like them but I'm not a fan of the two small circular lights on either side of the headlamp. I'm sure it adds character but I'd remove them or maybe find a way to bring them in closer to the middle.

those are the turn signals and I kind of like it, provides a retro feel and suits the bike. Even for someone that comes from a sport bike, it's still a good look to me IMO.

I really like the wire wheels. Highly desirable. Also the LED round tail light looks really clean. The turn signals match the ones up front which I think is a good and bad thing though lol

The spoked wheels are a nice touch but I'm wondering if they'll come standard or if the base scr950 would come with a different set of wheels. Spoked wheels aren't exactly cheap.

That is true... I've seen set of spoked wheels go for over $2k ... I mean they are aftermarket but generally the same concept ?

I like the stock exhaust sound. It's there without being intrusive or too muted.

Dislike? The seat. Parts of me hurt that a guy should never have hurt from a m/c ride.
Seat Concepts could probably be persuaded to do up a replacement foam and cover kit very reasonably for a group buy.
I had one of their setups on a FZ-09 and really liked it. The appearance was stock. The comfort level was way better.

What about doing something like a gel pad insert ?
I got have a fall-back position before I cut into the stock foam for an insert.
Replacement OEM seats are in the warehouses yet.
Dealer cost is under $150. So, if I screw up, it won't be too bad. ;-)
The hardness of the stock seat's one thing. The shape is another matter.
