Yamaha XT 600 Scrambler

Yamaha Custom Scramblers

Yamaha motorcycles continue to be popular donor bikes for custom scrambler builds. These range from vintage XS builds to single cylinder SR bikes to dual-sport curb-jumpers based on the company’s long-running XT series — plus a wealth of lesser-known bikes made over the years. Many builds incorporate the company’s popular “speed block” livery on their tanks or side panels, nodding to the company’s racing heritage. We’re particularly fond of the XS650 Yamaha scramblers, having owned one of these beautiful parallel twins ourselves.
