The Crux is currently Yamaha’s least expensive motorcycle at approximately $650. Don’t go running to your wallets just yet, though. The Crux is strictly for the Indian market. New reports show that Yamaha will be supplying the Indian market with an even cheaper model priced at $500. With a very heated low-priced-motorcycle-war going on in the region, this could be a huge gain for Yamaha. Details haven’t been released yet but we know it would be the cheapest Japanese manufactured motorcycle in that market. Assumptions are that an engine in the 100cc range will be utilized.

Both Suzuki and Yamaha were able to showcase the power and precision their bikes poses when driven by pros.
Take a look at one of the most exciting MotoGP finishes we have ever seen:

Today was the first day of school and we’re sure for every sad kid, there was a happy parent. It isn’t just kids going back to school though, many adults are back in the mix as well. In an effort to “keep it real” with our fans, we thought it would be a great idea to write about the hands-on Technology Training Program for Motorcycle Mechanics at the Universal Technical Institute. In a short period of time you can be working in the field and possibly doing what you love. Check out some of the program features:
