Yamaha has been producing motorcycles since 1955 and they appeared on U.S. shores just three years later. Quickly adopted by racers, Yamaha motorcycles have been winning races at virtually every level for decades. Today Yamaha manufacturers a huge variety of motorcycles for just about every purpose. Newer riders can choose from the likes of the diminutive C3 scooter and unintimidating V Star 250 cruiser, while more experienced pilots can opt for the YFZ-R1 sportbike, the YZ450F motocrosser and dozens of other high performance machines. Yamaha is also aggressively adding to its already impressive fleet with models like the dual sport Super Tenere R1-inspired FZ8. Yamaha fans can also draw inspiration from its many championship winning racers.
