Why choose Yamaha?

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!

Its quiet,and comfortable to ride.and being a 2004 model still looks ,and
rides like a much newer model.
Back in my teenage years i had nortons,triumphs,but my all time favourite
was my bsa gold star dbd34 wish i still owned it?
My previous bike before the yamaha 600 was a honda cbr 600 lovely
bike as well,but the racing style didn't suit me at my age,a 30 mile journey
was a painful experience,on wrists,back,and knees.and i would dismount
like john wayne after a long cattle ride"
