Yamaha Motor Canada has announced its 2022 model lineup and the addition of two new models, as well as, the creation of new model category designation within its marketing website.
During the presentation on May 17, 2021, officials announced the addition of the 2022 BWs 125 scooter as well as the 2022 YZF-R7 – a super spoke bike for those that are budget conscious.
“The new YZF-R7 isn’t meant to replace anything, but represent a new generation of super sport,” said Andrew Scott, motorsports specialist with Yamaha. “The intent was to go after anybody necessarily, but we definitely have some advantages over the competition.”
The 2022 BWs 125 aims to sell to the commuter crowd. When questioned on its price, Scott explained the model was $500 higher than the 2021 model version, but believes the new engine top end and amenities will drive its marketability.
Both models will be available for dealers in June.
In addition to the new bikes, new categories were created within Yamaha’s marketing on its website, with both “super sport” and “hyper naked” being added.
