Yamaha Motor Australia has announced an extension of its rider training program by partnering with national motorcycle training organisation Stay Upright.

Stay Upright has added Yamaha’s YZF-R1 and YZF-R6 supersports bikes plus MT-03 street motards and Ténéré adventure bikes to its 200-strong fleet of motorcycles they use to train 25,000 motorcyclists a year.

Stay Upright customers can now sample YZF-R1 and R6 as well as the learner legal MT-03 and Yamaha Ténéré adventure bikes.

The neutral handling MT-03 will be used to provide learner and provisional rider training, while the supersports models will be used in advanced riding courses and the 660 and 1200 Ténérés for Stay Upright’s adventure riding courses.

“Yamaha already offers comprehensive training for dirt bike riders with our industry leading Yamaha Institute of Motocross (Y-AIM),” explained YMA director/general manager Steven Cotterell.

“Plus our ATV Training Institute takes care of farm and industrial workers eager to learn about the safety aspects of SSV and ATV vehicles. Now customers can sample our great supersports, adventure bikes and the amazing LAMs MT-03 motard thanks to the biggest two wheeled training organisation in Australia.

“This is a great relationship for both parties because Stay Upright is able to offer a high quality product to their customers at the right price and a customer who tries a Yamaha is likely to buy a Yamaha.”

Stay Upright centres can be found at the following locations:
NSW – Clyde, Rouse Hill, Bathurst, Queanbeyan
QLD – Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Mount Cotton, Cairns
VIC – Hoppers Crossing, Ballarat, Geelong, Nerang
