The Yamaha TRX is an 849 cc two-cylinder Parallel Twin motorcycle, manufactured by the Yamaha Motor Company of Japan. Based on the Yamaha TDM 850 engine the TRX first came out in 1995 in Japan and 1996 in Europe. With 83.8 Nm of torque, and 61 kW (82.9 HP) its engine has a a 270 degree firing order for better power delivery. (Japanese version is slightly different from the European version.) It's a bike that gives you lots of riding pleasure, it handles very well and overall is a bike with character.

It never was a big seller in Northern Europe and was overshadowed by bikes such as the Honda VTR 1000, Suzuki TL1000 and Ducati 916. In 1999 Yamaha stopped production.
