A HAPPY MARRIAGE
It’s not just the four-stroke Yamaha project that’s on the go at the moment as they are also working on this two-stroke Yamaha badged European machine, as seen in action in the WTC in Japan in the hands of Fumitaka Nozaki. This ‘Happy Marriage’ gives us a superb looking machine that’s been given some design imagination in Japan to make it look so alive in the flesh. The Yamaha TYS300R two-stroke trials machine is basically a modern European brand machine that’s been given a makeover in Japan. It’s nothing to be blue about as Scorpa have also followed the lead with this and use the same 300cc single cylinder five-speed, water-cooled motor in a steel chassis of their own design. Once again it’s Haruo Kimura who is looking after the project, but after watching Nozaki in action we can confirm that it certainly goes well. We did ask to test this machine but were very politely declined.
