Yamaha Motor Corporation was founded in 1955, when it began to imitate European motorcycles. The first Yamaha motorcycle series was launched in 1956 – the YA-1, also known as the Red Dragonfly. This was a motorcycle with a cylinder with two-stroke engine that developed 5.6 hp and a relatively high maximum speed. Yamaha currently manufactures two-stroke engines and has a huge community of fans.
