MXworksbike.com is a huge Noguchi fan. Noguchi was a small arm
of the Yamaha factory racing department (similar to Mugen and
Honda) and often shared many parts with the Yamaha works bikes,
especially in the early years. Noguchi is mostly famous for it's
power-up kits for the Yamaha enduro and MX bikes. They also made
very small runs of Noguchi works bikes that were often based on
pre-production Yamaha's. The bikes and kits mostly had narrow
power bands and were extremely fast. The bikes also supported
works suspension components and other special parts. We will
feature Noguchi parts and bikes in the future. The photos here
were supplied by our good friend Hisao Yoshitomo.

race and motocross) came from this small factory.
