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.
