1960 SC-1

Collection items

(1960 / Production Model)


The SC-1 was Yamaha Motor's first scooter model. It employed many advanced technologies at the time like an electric starter/dynamo, a transmission that combined the torque converter and transmission with two gears, a shaft-drive type drivetrain and single-sided suspensions for the front and rear wheels. With the Japanese scooter market seeing rapid expansion as domestic and overseas makers entered the scene, the SC-1's excellent running performance and avante-garde design excited the era's fans.
