[] - Powersports Projects: Yamaha’s Tinkering with Plant-Based Engine

Click here for full story...

On top of shaving down their net-zero goals and debuting a handful of electric machines for our industry, Japanese multi-conglomerate marque Yamaha has another experiment in the lab – and this time, it has to do with engine resin.*

Plant-based engine resin, to be exact

The partnership that’s made this possible comes from Yammie’s recent venture with Tokyo-based Nippon Paper Industries, a company who has been experimenting on the creation of weird, oxy-moronic things like waterproof cardboard.*

Seem like a quirky use of lab time?

“Yamaha Motor is examining the utilization of this material not only in marine products but also in motorcycles and a wide range of other products in the future,” Yamaha says in a press release off BusinessWire.*

“[We] will adopt plant-derived cellulose nanofiber (CNF) reinforced resin for marine products as an initiative toward reducing CO2 emissions and the Company’s environmental footprint.”*

Another step in the direction of sustainability, and one that will have Yammie that much closer to their Medium-Term Management Plan (2022–2024), announced in February.*Now to get our eager hands on the durability specs sheets…

What do you think? Drop a comment below letting us know what you think, and as ever – stay safe on the twisties.*
