Ins and Outs of Yamaha Motorcycles

Yamaha is Japanese multinational corporation that provides many products, including motorcycles. When you shop on eBay, you can find new and used Yamaha motorcycles with various dimensions and performance specifications.

Are older versions of Yamaha motorcycles for sale?

While most of the motorcycles are relatively new, eBay lists some vintage Yamaha motorcycles for sale that were produced as far back as the 1960s. Most of the motorcycles are newer and offered by owners that have used them for a while before deciding to sell them on eBay.

Yamaha motorcycle engine sizes

Each Yamaha model for sale has a different engine capacity. The size of the engine will determine the performance, durability, and strength of the motor. It's wise to choose the capacity of the engine by the experience of the driver, the length of time on the road, and the conditions of driving. If you are going to use the bike mainly for getting around in the city, a smaller capacity of 300cc to 500cc is recommended. If you are more experienced and make long trips on the open highway, a larger engine capacity will serve you better. A powerful capacity for an engine goes above 500cc and even above 700cc if you want to go cross-country with it.

Motorcycle types by Yamaha for sale

Whether you are looking at cheap Yamaha motorcycles or vintage Yamaha motorcycles for sale on eBay, you will have several motorcycle types to choose between. They are:

  • Standard: Flexible models that can be used almost anywhere and for anything. With a universal design, you can load almost anything to it. From 250cc to 1200cc, the average engine size is 500cc to 700cc. This is enough for almost any challenge.
  • Touring: Touring motorcycles come with the features of a car including GPS, warmed seats, windshields, automatic transmission, and big luggage capacity. These heavy and powerful motors are generally bought by people who often go on long trips and need the comfort and security that this type of motorcycle provides.
  • Dual-purpose: Dual-sport or ADV bikes are created to have the lightness of a dirt bike but with the features that make it legal on the road. These adventure motorcycles are great for beginners or people who are not afraid to put them to the test of the road.
  • Sportbike: A sportbike is created to be fast, accelerate quickly, and corner well at great speeds. All these functions operate at the expense of fuel economy, so this is a motorcycle designed especially for sports and recreational purposes.
  • Off-road/dirt bike: These models are not legal for street use. If you want to ride exclusively in open spaces, one of these may be right for you. They are light and easy to maneuver in off-road conditions.
