Why Choose a Yamaha Motorbike?

Here’s a little Yamaha heritage for anyone searching for competitive Yamaha motorbike insurance.

Founded by Japanese watchmaker Torakusu Yamaha in 1887 and originally named Nippon Gakki, the Yamaha Company started life making pianos and reed organs – and even now retains the three tuning fork logo from back then.

In the years after the Second World War, the company realised the growing need for affordable transportation – and in 1955 the first Yamaha motorised product, the YA-1 Motorcycle, a 125cc, 2-stroke, single-cylinder street bike was developed. Also known as the “Red Dragonfly,” this motorcycle proved so popular that the Yamaha Motor Company was formed.

What’s going on with Yamaha now?

Today, what began as a company producing simple and inexpensive machines has blossomed, ranking second only to Honda as the leading Japanese manufacturer in the UK.

The manufacturer offers what some consider to be the best sport bikes, cruisers and off-road bikes available on the market. But whether Yamahas are the best in your opinion is a bit beside the point, because the sales figures speak for themselves!

The bike itself is pretty good. When I bought it it had a bit of cosmetic damage but was mechanically sound.
However the seller at the time was the second owner. The first owner financed the bike and sold it before paying it off.
Supposedly the person I bought it from was unaware of this. I was recently sent a letter asking about the bike and now I worry the bike is going to be taken away.
Just shows you should always do a hpi check before buying

I use my Tracer for touring in the UK and Europe, it's very comfortable and suits touring well. I've fitted Givi paniers and a top box, along with front and rear mudguard extenders. It's performance is more than enough for me and it's economical in general use. However I may change it in the near future, for a Tracer 900 GT !!!
