What TTR stands for
Permalink  
 


Something interesting i came across while ''bing''ing...

Not sure how true this is but sounds good biggrin I also like the TTR ''Ticket to Ride'' thoery but don't think it's practical smile

...............................................................................................................................................................

The "T" in all those bikes stood for "Trail" because they were all enduro models.

So, the TT-R models are essentially updated versions of the old TT models of the 70s, 80s, and 90s. The "R" designation simply means "Racing" because these particular TT models share parts and engineering with the two-stroke YZ and four-stroke YZF full-on motocross machines.

Essentially, all TT-R models are classified as playbikes by Yamaha, much the same way that the previous-iteration TT models were. But, while the original TT models were pretty heavy and bulky, the TT-R models are comparatively lighter, higher-tech, and easier to ride.

.......................................................................................................................

Another ''thoery'' is that it stands for Terrain Trail Racer.

Jarrah.
