Yamaha motorcycles - imagination and atmosphere of challenge - motorcycles

 

"If you are going to do something, be the best"
Ginichi Kawakami, Yamaha Motor Business First President.

Yamaha Motorcycles, under this motto, employing all its creativity, and with a very biting character of challenge, became what it is now: one of the chief players in the worldwide motorcycling scene.

But Yamaha's annals doesn't start with motorcycles. . .

It is back in 1877 that Torakusu Yamaha ongoing with the Nippon Gakki Business that later would be converted into Yamaha Corporation: an crucial manufacturer of fine musical instruments.

As the circle grew, they explored numerous fields of occasion in the material commerce and others.

During the World War II, the circle set up a factory to churn out airliner propellers. This plant played an central role in Yamaha's entry to the bike business as you will see.

After the war, Yamaha Corporation had to find new ways to use the tooling and encounter that had been accumulated for the duration of their times in the aircraft industry, and it was then when Yamaha Motor Corporation was founded.

It's central to allusion that even although this new band was just a further area of Yamaha Corporation, it was positioned under an autonomous management. In this case, under the guidance of Ginichi Kawakami; which curved out to be a brilliant move.

Before producing their first motorcycle, Ginichi Kawakami traveled a lot establishing what would be very convenient relationships. He also sent out his engineers to Europe and had them learn how to build motorcycles, especially from DKW; whom with they kept an underground and unofficial long lasting relationship.

One proof of this is that nowadays, the only two manufacturers in the world of mass-produced five side-valve engines are Yamaha an Audi (DKW - Auto Union).

One of the most central legacies from this intercontinental relationships were all the skills learnt by Yamaha's engineers on two stroke engines know-how. Other manufacturers as Suzuki would not reach the same level of change in this area till seven years later.

Not to awe why the first bike from Yamaha Motorcycles the 125 YA-1 was equally a faithful copy of the 1949 DKW RT 12. The only two crucial differences were the four speed gearbox as an alternative of the first three speed gearbox, and a gear transmission replacing the core chain drive.

IMPORTANT MODEL FROM YAMAHA MOTORCYCLES

>>> Yamaha YA-1

Even although the Yamaha YA-1 - baptized "Acatombo" (Red dragonfly) by its fans - had "nothing in special" and was more exclusive than its competitors, it just about as soon as became a great success.

It was reliable: beforehand putting it into the market, the prototypes were veteran along 10,000 miles of rough rides . Even the big boss himself, Ginichi Kawakami, rode the bike lacking any episode from Hamamatsu to Tokyo.

It was beautiful: with this model Yamaha was the first manufacturer to put exclusive interest to the embellishment of the motorcycle. This task was given to GK Conceive in Tokyo. It's worth mentioning that this firm has deliberate the "look" of most Yamaha motorcycles to date.

It was fast: the YA-1 obtained exceptional general fallout in the most central local races of that time: Mount Fuji (third place) and Mount Asama (first place).

In fact it was this aggressive bearing in the generous world that helped Yamaha Motorcycles gain fast acceptance even despite the fact that they made a late start in the dirt bike scene (in contrast to Honda and Suzuki).

In other words: Yamaha Motorcycles showed the world they had indoors to be measured good and fierce competitors from the beginning. Above all to Honda and Suzuki.

Other central models from that time were:

>>> The Yamaha YD-1 (the clash for the Suzuki TP of that time)

Some expert specifications:

Yamaha YD-1

15 hp 70 mph. 185,000 yen

in association to:

Suzuki TP

18 hp 80 mph. 195,000 yen

>>> The Yamaha YDS-1

The dream bike of all young Japanese concerning 1959-1960.

Some expert specifications:

20 hp 333 lbs. 85 mph.

Direct rival of the Honda CB72

Since then, the annals of models and victories goes on and on. . .

Today, Yamaha Motorcycles is one of the major players in the worldwide motorcycling scene.

Just to give you an idea of how chief Yamaha Motorcycles have become:

- The 2004 Moto GP was won by admirable rider Valentino Rossi on a Yamaha motorcycle.

I could go an and on journalism about Yamaha Motorcycles, victories, challenges and models but I would need a whole book?

So to learn more about Yamaha Motorcycles, I attract you to visit this page: http://www. yamaha-motor. com/products/mcy/epic/epic_home. html You will find a charming annals of Yamaha Motorcycles from 1955 to 2001.

Enjoy the ride!
