Yamaha Other description

Lowered the reserve.  Selling one from my collection.  This is a 175cc Enduro with 3,600 miles on it.  I bought the bike about 20 yrs ago to ride around the pits while following the NASCAR circuit in the 90's.  Last started about 5 years ago so it'll need a new battery (about $30) and a little plug cleaning... but she'll fire right up.  Ride it, restore it, display it or just teach your kids how stuff works.  Very cool bike with a great color scheme (stripe on the front fender is so cool!).  If you have any questions... just ping my cell at 978-761-8788.  Need it gone / Thanks

This is Jorge Lorenzo’s New Motorcycle: Yamaha YBR250

Tue, 07 Feb 2012

You would figure a former MotoGP World Champion and one of the top motorcycle racers on the planet would have his pick for a streetbike. Not if he doesn’t have a motorcycle license and is practicing for his riding test however. In 2010 MotoGP Champion Jorge Lorenzo‘s case, his ride is the Yamaha YBR250.

Valentino Rossi Test Drives Kyle Busch’s NASCAR Toyota Camry

Tue, 23 Apr 2013

The morning after riding his Yamaha M1 to a sixth-place finish at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas, nine-time Grand Prix World Champion Valentino Rossi landed in Charlotte, N.C., to race around another track; only this time there were no right turns. (UPDATED with additional photos.) Rossi met up with NASCAR racer and fellow Monster Energy-sponsored athlete Kyle Busch to ride Busch’s Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota Camry at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Busch, winner of the last three Nationwide Series races, gave Rossi a walkaround of his car before taking the Yamaha factory rider around a few laps of the Charlotte† Motor Speedway 1.5-mile oval.

OEMs Plug into Electric Bikes

Sat, 01 Nov 2008

KTM introduced its prototype electric motorcycle earlier this week, and electric bike manufacturer Zero Motorcycles almost immediately responded by opening sales on its 2009 Zero X dirt bike (look for our review of the 2008 model next week!). But these two companies arenít the only ones exploring the possibilities of electric-powered motorcycles. In September, Japanís largest industrial information journal Nikkei Business Daily reported that both Honda and Yamaha have set target dates for launching their own electric-powered motorcycles.
