2015, so a little dated:Just curious, what was the date for that article. Surprised and a little disappointed they didn't include Indian. Thanks for adding some 'facts' to this conversation. I found it interesting that Yamaha finished first. My first bike was a Yamaha back n the late '60s, and I raced Yamaha's for the next 7-8 years. They were always competitive and reliable but I was a bit surprised to see it still holds true for their street bikes today. I've owned 6 of the 10 brands shown here and my experience matches that of this survey exactly, with Ducati being the highest maintenance of what I've owned .... of course that goes back a few years.
