Special Categories[edit]

The special Category Category:Japanese motorcycles has been created to bring together all Japanese motorcycle articles on Wikipedia, so it is the first place to look to find the gaps or to expand existing articles.

Japanese motorcycle images[edit]

We have been building up a comprehensive collection of Japanese motorcycle images at the WikiMedia Commons, organised by make of bike. Please have a look and see if you can identify any which have incomplete information - and add any copyright free images that you have.

Japanese motorcycle manufacturers[edit]

The list of Japanese motorcycle manufacturers is held in Category:Motorcycle manufacturers of Japan. The aim is to cover envery known producer of Japanese motorcycles. Each article should have the template Template:Infobox Company completed in as much detail as possible - with any units converted, which can be quite complicated until you get used to it so its worth referring to Template:Convert.
