Yamaha Motor announces Tricity LMW (Leaning Multi Wheel) Thailand launch in April 2014
New scooter buyers have something to look forward to in the new Yamaha Tricity. Coming in at a price of €4,000 (about US$5,400) when released in Europe by mid 2015, this futuristic scooter has already made its debut earlier this month at the EICMA in Milan, Italy.
Tricity from Yamaha is a three wheeled wonder with special tilting facility. It was also on display at the Tokyo Motor Show close to its final production model where it was seen to be lighter and more compact as compared to other three wheelers in the market today.
Measuring 75″ in length, 28.9″ in breadth and standing 47.8″ high, the new Tricity from Yamaha will weigh a total of 150 kgs. It will be powered by a 125 cc liquid cooled 4 stroke engine and will excel both where specifications and performance is concerned.
Sporty in stance and efficient in performance, the new Tricity has been designed for agility and has a narrow track and short wheelbase. Front wheel is topped with a fixed fender and has a disc brake mounted on its interior while there is also a single disc brake at the rear. A spacious compartment under its seat allows for easy storage while Yamaha is keeping other specifications a closely guarded secret.
