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!

Yamaha MT-07 ABS (74)

I've been riding bikes for almost 50 years without a break and have had some really great bikes (and some not so good!) and my MT-07 is giving me more pleasure than any before. More than enough power (great power/weight ratio), superb handling, extremely lightweight, very comfortable, great engine etc. I have probably done more miles on this in 18 months than I rode in the previous 4 years, I just want to ride it every chance I get. It is my first unfaired bike for many years and I wasn't sure if I would miss a fairing too much. Not a problem, I fitted an Ermax screen and don't miss a fairing one bit. Buying my MT-07 is the best biking decision I've ever made.
