September 2005[edit]

In the Pakistan, Yamaha works in the name of DYL (Dawood Yamaha Ltd.) and manufacturing a three models Royale YB100, Excellence YB100 and Yama-4 YD100.— Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 07:35, 23 September 2005‎

Consistency somebody..[edit]

In the sentence starting: "In 2000, Toyota and Yamaha Corporation made a capital alliance..." one purchased 5% shares and another 500 000 shares. Can someone make this comparable? In other words change both to percentages or both to share quantity...? comment added by TM 5:53PM, November 10 2007


Can we get some company history -- who what where when why? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:42, 2 November 2007 (UTC)

Formula One?[edit]

I don't know if it applies to this division of the Yamaha but in about 1995 didn't Yamaha make V10 Formula One engines for the Tyrell Formula One Team? I remember there being a refrence to it in the 1995/1996 book "Anatomy of Speed" by Terry Jackson. I think if relevent there should be a refrence to it.

2 stroke DT125/YZ125 engines.[edit]

Hi, anyone out there got any experience of tuning these engines? I'm interested in trying out idea's on a slave engine; from simple porting to more extensive re-machining/re-designing the basic engine. Contact me on: Thanks and regards in advance, Derek.

No Wave Runners![edit]

There is nothing on Yamaha PWC line, please someone more knowledgeablke about it make one

Article move/rename[edit]

Has this article been correctly titled? According to Wikipedia:Naming conventions (companies), "Ltd" or "Limited" should not be included; it should just be "Yamaha Motor Company" or "Yamaha Motor Co." Then, "Ltd" should be used within the first line of the opening paragraph instead of the unabbreviated "Limited". -- DeLarge 06:54, 26 June 2006 (UTC)

Absolutely. Arguably another choice could be just Yamaha Motor which is also free. However Yamaha Motor Co., Ltd. is completely contry to the policy. Ian3055 22:49, 2 July 2006 (UTC)

What about Yamaha's line of motor scooters? Should they be included here?

not still part of Yamaha Corporation?[edit]

The intro makes it sound like Yamaha Motor is no longer part of Yamaha Corporation, but the Yamaha Corporation page seems to suggest the opposite. Which is right? --Allen 20:17, 10 September 2006 (UTC)

No response, so based on Yamaha Corporation and, I've changed the first sentence. --Allen 02:21, 20 September 2006 (UTC)

Corporations and logos[edit]

Yamaha Motor Co. is no longer a part of the Yamaha Corp. They were separated some years ago. However, they still share the same name and the "tuning forks logo", but there is a tiny difference in their logos. The "M" in YaMaha differs - in the musical/electronics division the M is cropped at the middle "V", while on the Motor Co. it runs down to the base line with the other letters. I notice the logo for the motor co. here at Wikip. is wrong, as it is actually the logo for Yamaha Corporation.

The listing of the Yamaha Group of Companies still includes Yamaha Motor Company. Also, Yamaha Motor Company is still listed on Yamaha Corp.'s home page. Are you sure that the Motor Company is not still a subsidiary of the Corporation? Respectfully, SamBlob 01:32, 26 January 2007 (UTC)
I've uploaded the correct logo for Yamaha Motor Company and put it in this article. Polpo 22:26, 31 July 2007 (UTC)
Isn't the Yamaha motors logo red? That is the colour it has on their websites. Chris Ssk talk 00:21, 20 January 2008 (UTC)

Racing Heritage[edit]

Yamaha has a rich racing heritage. This article sorely needs a section on the company's racing history.Orsoni 09:30, 10 December 2006 (UTC)

Yeah! I am going to write something about the Dakar rally Potaaatos 15:06, 20 January 2007 (UTC)

They have another branch...[edit]

They also make little keyboards, Shouldn't there be a section for that? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:18, 28 July 2008 (UTC)

Any objections to deleting all of the unsourced lists?[edit]

There are long lists of various and sundry products that were made at one time in the past. Or were they? They seem to have been copied here from some unnamed "Japanese site", whatever that means. So these lists are totally unreliable, no? And what exactly is the encyclopedic value of the unproven existence of an "Alkalion purifier" whose model number is OH-A21N? Does that mean anything to you? To me it means nothing. Maybe they once made a wheelchair model JW-IB. Maybe not. Why must that be listed here?

I believe that if reliable sources do actually exist for any this data, and it is in fact important, deleting it now will cause no harm, for someone will replace it and cite it, due to it's importance and verifiability. If it is not important and not verifiable, then good riddance. --Dbratland (talk) 05:57, 15 August 2009 (UTC)

Yep. If it's sourced, it can be a list of its own, such as List of Yamaha water filters or whatever. And they'll automagically be in a category. For now, remove it. tedder (talk) 06:18, 15 August 2009 (UTC)
Remove. --Biker Biker (talk) 08:07, 15 August 2009 (UTC)

Partially cleaned up; needs more revision[edit]

I've removed some of this and referred to List of Yamaha products. The article is still structured poorly in that the top section is motorcycles and it works its way down to other products, and doesn't even have a section on musical instruments. The sections need to be sorted to give proper weight to each of the different sectors that Yamaha manufactures in.--Dbratland (talk) 18:38, 22 October 2009 (UTC)

Actually Yamaha Corporation is the main article; this one only needs to cover the motor group.--Dbratland (talk) 22:40, 22 October 2009 (UTC)

New Models: FZ6R[edit]

I noticed that there is no information about any '09 or '10 models including the new FZ6R series. Before starting a page, I wanted to add a brief history of the FZ6R models in the motorcycle model section. JtMoto6 (talk) 03:19, 10 February 2010 (UTC)
