Some of Yamaha’s motorcycles include the Yamaha YZF-R1 and YZF-R6, the FJR1300 touring motorcycle, and the FZ1 and FZ6 street motorcycles. Yamaha’s off-road motorcycles include the YZF motocross and WR endurance models.

Yamaha has been producing motorcycles since 1955, and they appeared on U.S. shores just three years later. Quickly adopted by racers, these great bikes have been winning races at virtually every level for decades. Today, Yamaha manufactures a huge variety of bikes 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, and soon their new FZ-09. Yamaha fans can also draw inspiration from its many championship winning racers.

2013 Sport-Touring Shootout 1.0 - Video

Since Yamaha was kind enough to revamp the FJR1300 for 2013, we thought it was high time to see how it stacked up against the Honda ST1300 and Kawasaki Concours 14 in a sport-touring shootout.

2012 Adventure-Touring Shootout - Video

BMW’s R1200GS has long been the cock of the walk when it comes to big-bore Adventure-Touring bikes, but it’s now got competition from Yamaha, Triumph, KTM and Moto Guzzi. Have any of these newer models surpassed the mighty GS as the class benchmark?
