“Yamaha is currently celebrating its 60th anniversary, and our long history of supporting the motorcycle community in Canada makes this a perfect fit,” said Chris Poirier of Yamaha Motor Canada. “We’re proud to help celebrate this year’s inductees with the Hall of Fame with our partner, Ontario Tourism.”
“The board of the Hall of Fame is extremely pleased to welcome Yamaha Motor Canada and Ontario Tourism to this event,” said Mike Harwood, Chair of the Canadian Motorcycle Hall of Fame. “We recognize Yamaha’s incredible contribution to the history of motorcycling in Canada, in both their technical innovations and their commitment to competitive motorsports. As the backroads and highways of this great province are a treasure for motorcyclists, we’re happy to welcome Ontario Tourism to the fold.”

11 legends and champions will be honoured at the Tenth Annual Canadian Motorcycle Hall of Fame Induction Banquet and Reunion.
Founded by Bar and Hedy Hodgson in 1999, the Canadian Motorcycle Hall of Fame preserves and promotes Canadian motorcycle history for the benefit of the motorcycling community and public. Sponsored in part by the Motorcyclists Confederation of Canada (MCC), the Canadian Motorcycle Hall of Fame is a non-profit association with charitable status. It is governed by an independent board of volunteer directors representing every region of the country. Since the first induction banquet in Toronto in 2006, over 100 distinguished motorcyclists and organizations have been inducted into the Canadian Motorcycle Hall of Fame.
