Staff Blog: What is it with this blinking weather?

Alison Silcox, 13 May 2013 08:19

Alison Silcox, 06 May 2013 08:00

It’s not a bad thing that I’m stuck ...

What better way to run in the new Yamaha Fazer 8 than to pop over to Normandy for a three day rider training work shop with Nigel, nicknamed Red Leader, from Advanced Motorcycle Training! I took collection of the bike on Monday, fitted the Ventura luggage system on Wednesday and was on the ferry bound for Caen on Friday, not ...

Two of the machines were caught by our colleagues at Australian Motor Cycle News as they were pitted against the bike that’s become the standard-bearer for the 1000cc class, BMW’s S1000RR.

2013 Yamaha FJR1300 leaked

Andy Downes, 25 September 2012 09:22

Yamaha's revised FJR1300 tourer was accidentally leaked for a brief period yesterday. The bike doesn't show any major changes but it can be seen to have new side fairings, a slightly revised subframe and more up-to-date clocks, but the frame appears identical as does the engine and the rest of the major components. There is a rumour the FJR1300 will ...

Is this the coolest Yamaha T-Max on the planet?

Liam Marsden, 30 May 2012 10:42

Maxi scooters generally aren't the coolest looking vehicles on the road -their masses of plastic making them look like bulbous alien spaceships at best. This Yamaha T-Max is the creation of German custom builder Marcus Walz, who was asked to 'hyper-modify' the T-Max by Yamaha. Walz opted to strip the big scooter down to reduce weight, boost performance and make ...
