Yamaha Day 2022 Competition

Ties In A New Age

Help us celebrate Yamaha’s 67th birthday for your chance to WIN!

Yamaha celebrates its birthday on 1 July, but the celebrations of the 2022 Yamaha Day theme, Ties, will continue throughout the month of July.

Yamaha Motor New Zealand and Australia are giving you the chance to win 1 of 3 ShopYamaha vouchers each valued at a whopping $500AUD.

All across the world, Ties is one of Yamaha’s founding brand principles centered around creating value, surpassing expectations, and retaining customers for life. But to you, Ties can mean something else.

For you, Ties might mean the unique sound of the cross-plane engine of a YZF-R1m as screams through a tunnel. For others, it could be the sensation of a WaveRunner NanoExcel2 hull cutting through the water. Or maybe it’s the confident feeling of using HelmMasterEX GPS to hold position as you target that trophy fish you have been after. What Ties means to you is what we want to hear!

To enter the Yamaha Day Ties Competition, simply tell us your Ties story.  Share an image or a video to Instagram with a caption of 25 words or less, make sure you include the hashtags #YamahaDay2022 & #YamahaDay, and then tag one of our official accounts listed below.


Entries are open to residents of Australia and New Zealand only. Competition starts Friday, 1 July 2022 and closes 11:59pm 31 July 2022.
