That's the Yamaha tuning fork logo mate, you've never seen it before? ;D
I was feeling sorry for myself because I couldn't afford new bike boots, until I met a man with no legs.

So I said, "Hey mate, you haven't got any bike boots you don't need, do you?"

They do make a good outboard ;D but all the Yammy bikes I have worked on have been assembled like everything is an after thought.  No jobs on them are simple or straight forward like on the Hondas.  This is only my experience I have only worked on a few Yammys, but I'm not in a hurry  to increase the number I have worked on.
