Riffs & Revs: a #UnitedByYamaha Story

When Yamaha Motor Company was founded in 1955 as a breakaway from Yamaha Corporation, the concept of Two Yamahas, One Passion was born. Riff & Revs, a short film produced by Yamaha Motor Australia as part of its seven-film #UnitedByYamaha series to commemorate Yamaha Day 2021, is a celebration of this concept. Riffs & Revs reveals how the separate worlds of motorcycles and guitars can overlap when a shared passion for music is added.

Kat Ayala is a Yamaha Music Artist and Revstar ambassador who lives for the thrill of a live performance. Chris Dobie is a communications specialist at Yamaha Motor Australia who has carved out a career writing about motorcycles. On the surface the two appear very different, but their shared love of music reveals how their worlds are #UnitedByYamaha.

Watch the Riff & Revs short film, then head to Yamaha Motor Australia to view the other six films in the #UnitedByYamaha series.

Competition Details


The style, feel, and sound of RS702B are unmistakably classic, but no detail was left simply to tradition. The custom-voiced pickups, Bigsby vibrato, inlays inspired by our 70s’ “Super Flighter” series, and elegant gloss finish combine timeless inspirations into a modern classic.
