Yagi Light Vehicle Manufacturing Co., Ltd. (Himeji city, Hyogo Prefecture) 1953-59

八木軽車両製作所(兵庫県姫路市)

Yagi produced the Sanyo (ンヨー号) OHC 148cc and 250cc single cylinder 4 strokes, and a 125cc 2 stroke called the Rotary (ロータリー号). The 4 stroke engine was their own design and they held at least 2 patents for their combustion chamber and their oil pump. Despite the name, the 2 stroke appears to be a conventional piston port design rather than a rotary valve. The 4 strokes also featured a foot operated linked braking system in 1957 which was possibly a world first
