    Consumer Reports most "reliable" motorcycles, ranks Yamaha as....

    Good news for Yamaha fans! I was just perusing the Consumer Report website for paint, and decided to type in "motorcycles".
    I'm not a paid member there, but was able to click on a link for "most reliable motorcycles", or something like that.
    Anyway, Yamaha comes out #1 !
    Boy! BMW isn't fairing so hot...glad I like the OLD (airhead!!) ones...

    Reliablity by brand:

    Brand Percent failed

    Yamaha/Star 11%
    Suzuki 12
    Honda 12
    Kawasaki 15
    Victory 17
    Harley-Davidson 26
    Triumph 29
    Ducati 33
    BMW 40
    Can-Am 42

    With a larger sample size than in our previous motorcycle survey, now counting 12,300 motorcycles, we were able to add more brands and resolution this year. For this analysis, we adjusted for mileage driven over a 12-month period and estimated repair rates for 4-year-old models without a service contract.

    This certainly wouldn't surprise anyone who has had a TW for many years!

    I own two Yamahas and one Suzuki. Obviously I agree with that poll.

    That HD is more reliable than any bike on any list surprises me. Also surprised by BMW's low rank. I wonder where Urals would rank?
