How was YCF created?
Founded by Yannick Coquard, a National Pro Motocross racer who rode pit bikes to cross train in the winter; and Dimitri Bera, a high level French technician who now lives in China overseeing all development. They joined forces in 2004. The YCF story started when Yannick decided to improve the quality and reliability of the pit bike he owned before starting YCF. Step by step he modified this bike and finally decided he would build his own bike. Taking advantage of his pit bike experience, he knew what it would take to create a bike that customers would expect when they buy a high quality machine.
