Yamaha was the first Japanese motorcycle manufacturer to race internationally after it was officially established in 1955, and the Iwata-based company has helped push the performance market forward ever since. Participating today in many forms of on- and off-road competition, including roadracing, supercross, and rallies, Yamaha continues to honor its musical heritage, which dates to the late 19th century, with its logo, a trio of interlocking tuning forks. The current Yamaha motorcycle product range is broad, from the swift FJR1300ES sport tourer and title-winning YZF-R1 superbike to the striking Niken three-wheeler and legendary PW50 beginner dirt bike. In between resides virtually every kind of machine, including the MT-09, an affordable three-cylinder naked bike that delivers sizzling performance and style, and the versatile twin-cylinder Super Ténéré adventure bike. Others include a trio of lightweight dual-sport bikes led by the WR250R, a handful of easy-to-ride scooters like the fuel-injected Zuma 50F, and nearly a dozen YZ motocross, WR enduro, and TT-R playbikes.
