LS2 Twin Jet 100 #01
Blue / White
To the best of my knowledge,
Yamaha produced the first Twin Jets, called the YL1 and YL1E
from 1966 to 1968. Those bikes built with the stamped
frame were the predecessor to this LS2 but there are
obviously many differences. The YL2 was a 100cc bike
but it was a single cylinder. A few years passed and the
LS2 was introduced for 1972. The LS2 was completely
re-engineered and is a great handling machine and they were
available in Blue / White or Orange / White. This was
the only year that this bike was produced for the U.S.
market and it is a shame that it didn't continue.
