The Spirit of Challenge
It all began when then president of Nippon Gakki (now Yamaha Corporation), Genichi Kawakami, used machining equipment from the production of metal airline propellers to develop the first Yamaha motorcycle: the YA-1. From there, Yamaha moved with determination from one challenge to the next, using an in-depth knowledge of engines to diversify its product offerings. Today, Yamaha continues its commitment to developing innovative products that will enrich the lives of enthusiasts around the globe.
Kando is a Japanese word for the simultaneous feeling of deep satisfaction and intense excitement that people experience when they encounter something of exceptional value. Yamaha strives to create Kando through Innovation, Excitement, Confidence, Emotion and Ties. These values are at the core of everything we do.
