About Yamaha Malaysia

Yamaha Malaysia is one of the country’s oldest running two-wheeler manufacturers. Today, Yamaha maintains several dealerships across Malaysia, including the authorised dealer, star centre, star dealer, big bike, YQS, YGP store, and spare parts stockist. The Hong Leong Yamaha Motor Sdn. Bhd. (HLYM) is the official distributor of Yamaha vehicles locally. 

HLYM was incorporated in 1979 in Malaysia. It is a joint venture between Yamaha Motor Co. Ltd. and Hong Leong Industries Bhd. The later holds the majority stake in HLYM and is a part of the diversified Hong Leong Group of Companies. In 1978, Yamaha appointed HLYM as its official franchise holder for CBU and CKD motorcycles and ATVs in Malaysia. In 1979, the RX100 became the first Yamaha CKD street model to be rolled out of the Shah Alam plant. 

In the coming years, Yamaha expanded its lineup with the introduction of models like the DT125, Y80, and DX 1000. Also, the production capacity of the plant reached 3500 units per month. In 1988, the 500,000th locally assembled unit was rolled out in grand fanfare. Further, in 1994, Yamaha Malaysia made the commendable achievement of rolling out the 1,000,000 motorcycles. 

Moving down the lane, Yamaha Malaysia relocated from Shah Alam to the current 36 acres Hong Leong Yamaha Complex. It houses the company’s main office block, warehouse, assembly operation, plastic injection moulding, spray painting, and even an R&D centre with four factories engaged in press and welding of metal parts. Hicom Yamaha Motor Manufacturing Sdn Bhd locally supplied most of the CKD bike engines. In 2018, 4 millionth unit of Yamaha motorcycle was rolled out, and it was a testament of HLYM’s long-term commitment to deliver a premium quality product that meets Yamaha Motors Co.Ltd. standards. 

Toyota HLYM continues its successful journey by continuously investing in new technologies, equipment, and enhancing the skills of its employees. Over time, Yamaha Malaysia has received many awards and recognition including the ISO 9001, ISO14001 (Environment Management System) from SIRIM QAS International and SGS Malaysia/SGS UK and MPC certification by the Malaysia Productivity Corporation and the Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) Excellence 1st Category award from JIPM for the enhancement of quality, cost, and delivery performance.

Be it moped, automatic, street, or big bikes Yamaha Malaysia has it all some of its mega players are the R24, NVX, Y15ZR, and MT-09. 

With its exceptional lineup, Yamaha Malaysia has committed to power the passion of motorcyclist and help them create lifestyle experience and extraordinary value to enrich their lives.

    Anthony Sep 29, 2020 for Yamaha Y15ZR

    I was never a fan of underbones my entire life, however, everything changed after I decided to take my friend’s Yamaha Y15ZR for a little spin. Post the short drive, my review is that it is one of the best motorcycles available in the Malaysian market. The vehicle might look slender in its design but is definitely a street performer.

    Armando Sep 28, 2020 for Yamaha MT-09

    In my opinion, the Yamaha MT-09 is quite a bold step by Yamaha, by moving from making brawny and super muscular FZs in the past to the leaner yet muscular MTs of the today’s generation. The MT-09, in that very sense, has impressed me a lot, with its super athletic stance which looks sturdy yet sharp to give supermotos a Read More 5

    Arnold Sep 28, 2020 for Yamaha XMax 250

    For people like me who are associated more to scooters rather than motorcycles, the Yamaha XMax 250 fulfills the need of thrills and premium essence a big two wheeler should possess. For a 250cc scooter, the Yamaha XMax 250 has got the much needed road presence and size, which does help it in giving a feel of premium and expensive Read More 27

    Marcus Sep 24, 2020 for Yamaha Ego Solariz

    I needed an affordable scooter with decent fuel economy and good power for the daily commute. After extensive research, the scooter that stood out was the Ego Solariz from Yamaha. The scooter is a very decent package at an affordable, rather really affordable price. It comes with a 125cc single-cylinder engine which produces 9.3 hp of power at 8000 RPM Read More 22

    Yamaha is known for its refinement and it is one of the reasons for my loyalty towards the brand. After buying and riding the Tracer 900GT, my experience or opinion has not changed slightly.
