Yamaha Motorcycles – Baldwin’s Cycle

Yamaha Motorcycles

was born in 1953 from a motto “If you’re going to do something, be the best.” and in 1954 the first model was completed.  The bike was air cooled, 2-stroke, single cylinder 125cc engine and it was put through a 10,000km endurance test. This first Yamaha Motorcycle would be called the YA-1.

While in 1955 Yamaha Motorcycles was setting up its first factory to produce the new YA-1 Yamaha Motorcycle the Baldwin’s were planning their move from downtown Dunnville.  In 1956 the Baldwin’s completed their move to their present location and Yamaha Motorcycles had the YC1, a 175cc single cylinder two-stroke Yamaha Motorcycle ready for production.  In 1957 Yamaha began production of its first 250cc, two-stroke twin, the YD1.
