Inspired by the road-faring race replica motorcycles, the YCS1 was another motorcycle coming from Yamaha that offered exceptional performance and features on a small displacement easy-riding two-stroker. To quote an article from Bike-uriousThe 180cc twin utilized cast iron cylinders and carbs between 18-22mm. Sharing plenty of parts with the CS2, these bikes were often the first motorcycles for many a current rider.

With oil injection and an electric start standard on the YCS1, the 180cc motorcycle was packed with innovative tech that made it a standout in the market, while competitors designed future models with these features in mind. The Bonanza was good for 21 horsepower and 15 lb-ft of torque from the factory that was paired to a 5 speed manual transmission.

This example is VIN: CS1502115. The seller is a dealer and had the bike traded in to his dealership in July of 2022.
