One of the largest motorbike manufacturers in Japan, Yamaha Motor Company moved into the market for two-wheelers in the 1950s and hasn't looked back ever since.

The first production model was the Red Dragonfly YA-1, a single-cyclinder 125cc bike, which featured an air-cooled two-stroke engine.

Today, the company's European arm offers a wide range of products, from scooters right through to superibkes, although the most popular model in the UK is the XC125, which is available new from just over £2,000.

Also highly popular among restricted licence riders is the Yamaha YZF-R125, a stylish sports bike option, which benefits from much of the technology employed in the company's motorsports division.

Whether you use your bike for commuting or for leisure, Yamaha promises high levels of quality and support for all their two-wheelers, with only the finest components during the manufacturing process.

Yamaha bike owners can also benefit from Yamaha Assist, a breakdown service provided in partnership with the RAC, which offers 12 months comprehensive cover.

MotoGP fans will be very familiar with Yamaha, as the 2010 champion Lorge Lorenzo is their most prominent driver, with his YZR-M1 propelling him to the world title.
