Does anyone know what the Yamaha symbol stands for if anything. B3117 claims that he knows what it stands for but will not tell me so I am wondering if he really knows. That is if it stands for anything at all.

So B3117 is he right. If you are so good then tell him if he is right and what he has won.

Smile Yeah baby!

Wait! theres more! act now and you'll receive.....
seriously though it (the three intersecting tuning forks) make sense when you consider what Yamaha makes, musical instruments,ie...organs, keyboards,etc...

Got to go can't wait for B3117.............Ride safe

Thumbs up It's true...

Yamaha was making pianos long before they ever got into the motorcycle business. They've had the tuning fork logo forever. I'm glad to see it back on their bikes, because it's a classic!

Red face

Sice Yamaha was making instruments long before motorcycles, don't you think they could come up with a different symbol for the different products that they make. For example Honda has a different symbol on the cars, motorcycles, and other areas such as snowblowers and things like that. I just think it is a little lacking in originality

Lightbulb Yamaha Makes it All

Yamaha makes everything. They make musical instruments, motorcycles, robots, computer equipment, sound equipment, tuning equpment, they even make a car. I believe they make some surgical eqipment too. The tri-tuning forks can stand for anything. The tuning for means that it is a finely tuned machine.

Want to see all they make:
