The world of motorcycles could be considered as a ride down an unknown road while constantly looking over one’s shoulder, usually to the pastime’s colorful past. Case in point, Yamaha’s adoption of the ‘Yard Built’ phrase.
If riders catch a whiff of ‘new motorcycle smell’ in the air, it’s probably from the latest Sport Heritage and Cruiser motorcycle models from Yamaha, just a few of their 2018 models.
Regardless of how much ‘rebel’ motorcycle manufacturers build into their models, the practical side of riding brings a different look once they hit the streets. The latest Corbin seat for Yamaha’s XSR 900 proves this.
While Yamaha’s XSR900 doesn’t live in the motorcycle headlines as much as some of the manufacturer’s other models, the design world continues to shower it with accolades.
It appears two new colors are being added to the line-up of Yamaha’s popular YZF-R1 supersport motorcycle and may even find their way onto other US models.
Riders who thought Yamaha’s XSR900 was its only answer to the current fascination of scrambler-type motorcycles were surprised earlier this month when the Japanese manufacturer released its SCR950.
Yamaha have released the prices for two of its highly anticipated 2016 motorcycle models with the neo-retro XSR900 and supersport touring FJR 1300ES enjoying a price tag.
A quick look at the Yamaha website and it’s easy to think Yamaha have every genre of riding covered. Between the Yamaha and its Star brand, the Japanese motorcycle manufacturer has always managed to cover all the two-wheeled bases.
