Yamaha XV950 review | First rides | Motorcyclenews.com

The new XV950 is the first example of what Yamaha calls its 'Sports Heritage' range.

MCN visited Los Angeles to test the theory, and to find out just how capable the new XV950 really is.

Yamaha XV950 Yard Built 'Dangan' | Special | Motorcyclenews.com
The plan was simple. We thought it would be an interesting assignment to see what a relative novice at bike building could do to Yamaha’s XV950 with some bolt-on, third-party parts and a little imagination. NO CUTTING OR WELDING of the stock bike. It’s with pleasant surprise but a lot of pride that MCN can announce that this bike has been chosen to join their ranks as the latest in the line of XV950 Yard Built specials. The Bullet has hit the bullseye! Thanks: Lamb Engineering, Holographic Hammer, Mag-Europe, Elite Panelcraft, Yamaha UK, Central Wheel, Rizoma, Scott Lloyd, Magura, Pirelli, Sandqvist, Venhill, Greg Hageman.
