japanese bikes the most reliable, publication claims

Japanese brands Yamaha, Suzuki, Honda and Kawasaki are the most reliable, while Triumph, Ducati and BMW are “more repair-prone”, according to Which?-style magazine and website Consumer Reports.

Consumer Reports recently began rating motorcycles for reliability and customer satisfaction and says it received responses from more than 11,000 riders on more than 12,000 individual bikes purchased new from 2008 to 2014.

Statistically, it says, Yamaha owners are least likely to experience “serious problems” with their bikes.
