Exciting new models from Yamaha for 2015

Yamaha Motor Canada is thrilled to introduce the all-new Yamaha R3, Bolt Café, YZ250FX, WR250F and SMAX!

Highlighting the group is the all-new Yamaha R3. Sporting a new, twin cylinder 320cc engine and all-new chassis, the R3 offers class-leading power combined with light, agile handling. The Yamaha R3 will be available for $4,999 in Yamaha Blue, Vivid Red and Metallic Black.

There’s a new member of the Bolt family. Available in Dark Grayish Metallic Green and Silver, the 2015 Bolt C-Spec has all the great engine characteristics of the Bolt, plus low slung clip-on handlebars, new solo seat with rear seat cowl and a more sporty riding position. Canadian MSRP for the Bolt C-Spec $9,699.


Yamaha Motor Canada Ltd. Motorcycle Product Manager, John Bayliss, said “I can’t remember a bigger motorcycle launch in Yamaha’s history. This isn’t a ‘bold new graphic launch. These are five all-new bikes. There is a new motorcycle for every type of rider. This is only the beginning. Come November, we will be launching more all-new bikes!”

For the off-road enthusiasts, there are the all-new YZ250FX and WR250F, both available in Yamaha Blue. The YZ250FX is the perfect cross country or hare scramble machine. With the performance potential of the YZ250F, but with electric start and an 18-inch rear wheel, the YZ250FX is the bike for those serious about winning or for the weekend warrior who wants maximum performance in a convenient package for woods or track. For the WR250F, Yamaha has taken all the revolutionary YZ four-stroke technology such as; rearward slanted engine, reversed cylinder and a compact chassis and delivered it in an enduro package for light, agile handling on tight trails. The all-new YZ250FX will be priced at $8,749 while the WR250F will be $8,799.

Finally, for the crowd looking for fun, affordable transportation there is the fully automatic SMAX. Powered by a 155cc single cylinder, 4-valve, fuel-injected engine, the SMAX can easily keep up with traffic. With loads of wind and weather protection, it’s virtually vibration free. Priced at $3,999 in either Matte Titan or Dark Purplish Metallic Blue, the SMAX is the perfect commuter scooter.



Also released are the new-look Yamaha V-Star 1300 Deluxe SE, Stryker SE and Raider SE. Both Stryker SE ($12,599 MSRP) and Raider SE ($16,499 MSRP) models have all the same great features of the original units, but with the addition of a cool, small bikini fairing. Not only does it look great, it also helps reduce wind fatigue. Available at $14,999 MSRP, the V-Star 1300 Deluxe SE is sure to turn heads with its aggressive blacked out power plant and contrasting vivid red paint scheme.
