In 2015 summer, Yamaha Motor Europe declared that they will be back at the Superbike World Championship in 2016 after an interval of 5 years. It is the exciting news, as Yamaha’s bike led Ben Spies to the champion in 2009.

Let me here explain about Yamaha Motor, now. Yamaha had manufactured musical instruments originally, and got to do propellers for military planes out of their skilled features during the World War 2. Then, Yamaha Motor was built coming from that experience, after the war ended. Formidable is their skill, because it is said Yamaha Motor cooperated a lot for developing the engines of Toyota's 2000GT.


We can find Honda (famous both domestically and overseas) at the global top of motorbikes and Yamaha is at the second place. It naturally follows that talking about Yamaha’s bikes is telling of “Yamaha & Honda.”

My opinion says Yamaha Motor produces the motor bikes of elegance and high technology. Their machines look beautiful longing for their aesthetic value, which let them free from the times and categorization. Moreover, they often cast novel high technology into. It is concluded Yamaha Motor makes the motorbikes heading for something ultimate.

Why do they only play second fiddle to Honda, then? Honda’s motorbikes are easy to ride on and hard to break down (exceptional once in a while). They are supposed to head for the 8th station in every respect, not the top. In other words, giving solid comfort to the users comes before everything in Honda. It seems so hard to pull down such a stronghold.

To divide roughly, Yamaha goes if you want a motorbike and Honda works when you long for something to get around.
