Season summary[edit]

Honda's Mick Doohan captured his second consecutive 500cc crown in 1995.[1] Suzuki's Daryl Beattie had an early season points lead but crashed and injured himself in practice at Assen.[1] Luca Cadalora again won two races for Yamaha but failed to show any consistency.[1] Kevin Schwantz retired after the third race of the season with his numerous injuries finally taking their toll.[1]

Max Biaggi also won his second consecutive 250 championship for Aprilia with his eight victories second only to Mike Hailwood's 10 victories in 1966.[1] Haruchika Aoki easily won the 125 title for Honda with seven wins.[1]
