New Yamaha R1 on the way

MCN, 31 July 2014 11:15

Yamaha is just three months away from unveiling a completely new YZF-R1 superbike that it hopes will have the same class-defining impact the original 1998 model had when it was launched. The new bike retains the basic engine design of the current model, but it is understood to share almost nothing else with the current bike as it attempts to ...

Yamaha YZF-R125 quick ride

Andy Davidson, 20 June 2014 09:30

Yamaha knows how to play the 125cc field. Since the launch of the YZF-R125 in ’08, the firm has sold over 45,000 machines and the sports bike remains a best seller to this day. The revamped 2014 YZF-R125’s main changes are sturdier USD forks and quality brakes. The difference is certainly noticeable as the refreshed model can take a heavier ...

Dream Yamaha FZR750R OW-01 ride proves you should meet your heroes

Michael Neeves, 22 December 2011 13:40

Editor’s Picks: Yamaha FZS1000 Fazer

MCN, 07 October 2011 16:07

A comfortable streetbike with an R1 engine, the FZS1000 Fazer could have been a sportsbike destroyer, but it’s actually a soft, easygoing machine with plenty of punch. Arguable the ultimate all-rounder the big Fazer does everything well. Yamaha's engineers lopped the high rev peak power off the R1 engine for the Fazer, but rather than bolstering torque they managed to ...

It's not the sharpest-handling or most exciting big adventure bike out there, but as an all-round package it's certainly grown on me. The chassis is incredibly well balanced and combined, the engine civilised, it's comfortable and easy to ride, which is ultimately what a ...
