Yamaha roadsters motorcycles
What is most characteristic of a roadster motorcycle is that there is no fairing. The roadster motorbikes provide the pilot with strong sensations of acceleration, maneuverability and nervousness. They are very aggressive and bring a certain well being to their pilots. A derivative of the "roadster" is the "café racer" which repeats style effects of the old motorcycles. "Café racers" have been in fashion in recent years.
Originally they were more for the city, then this type of motorcycle was quickly used for road trips. However, the lack of fairing makes the pilot tired as he is not immune to wind, weather, cold or snow.
Among the Yamaha brand motorcycles, the MT 125 2014/2019, the MT 03 2016/2019, the FZS 600 FAZER 1998/2001, the FZ6N/ FZ6 S2 2004/2010, the XJ 600 DIVERSION 1996/2001, the MT-07/ FZ-07 2014/2017 and the XSR 700 2016/2019 are the best known for their superb style and comfort.

The trail motorcycles
The XT 660 R 2004/2016 looks good and keeps evolving, it seems to start again for another decade! Yamaha’s first XT was created in 1976.
The so-called “trail” motorcycles are used both on the street and on the road. This category is more or less close to enduro or cross bikes. Trail fashion was launched in the late 1970s.
Their similarities with cross bikes stop when we notice that their equipment allows them to circulate easily on the road. Their prices remain reasonable depending on the models…
The sports bikes Yamaha
The TZR 50 (1998-2002 and 2003-2017), the YZF R6 1999/2002, the YZF 125 R 2015/2018 or the YZF R3 2015/2019 are very well known models of Yamaha for their "sport" side.
Sports motorcycles are derivatives of motorcycles used in speed competition. Their smallness as well as their lightness compared to a motorcycle known as a « road » gives them the possibility to accelerate faster and to take speed so quickly!
These motorcycles are moderately comfortable and at reduced speed, they are not very maneuverable.
If you choose a sporty motorcycle, you will have to be very careful not to abuse easy speeds to exploit. Indeed, the traffic laws does not really allow sporting driving in most countries.
A little bit of history about the Yamaha brand…
Founded in 1887 by Torakusu Yamaha, the Yamaha Organ Manufacturing was founded in Hamamatsu. Torakusu Yamaha, born in 1851, was apprenticed to a clocks manufacturer before becoming a medical equipment professional. He is then called upon to repair an organ. That’s when Yamaha became a famous brand of musical instruments.
Torakusu died in 1916 and his business was bought. After the Second World War, this same company decided to make motorcycles. The first models are copies of German motorcycles but this does not prevent a certain effervescence for the brand!
In 1955, the YA-1 appeared. Then followed a series of successes. The models all meet success and the brand crosses Europe.
Yamaha recently celebrated her 500th victory at the Grand Prix Moto.
