The Japanese company was well known for its musical instruments, but in 1955 it began producing motorcycles.

It ranks second only to Honda as the leader among Japanese manufacturers.

2004 Yamaha R1 Street Test

At long last, here's the 2004 Yamaha R1, the third all-new bike in the highly anticipated 1000cc supersport class

2004 Yamaha FZ6

It was Thursday. I was hot in LA when the call came in from MO: "Agent Jason, Yamaha has a new bike available for a few hours and we want you to go ride it tomorrow.
