Yamaha Tricity, Taking a new direction: EICMA 2013
The all-new Tricity is a Leaning Multi-Wheel (LMW) powered by an automatic transmission 125cc 4-stroke engine. It is specifically designed to attract a large proportion of scooter and non-scooter users, as well as former riders, to the scooter market.
The Tricity will be the first of a number of affordable, agile, compact, light and practical new models that will be introduced starting 2014, and it is Yamahaâ€™s intention to make this the new â€˜standard city commuterâ€™.
We can confirm that the concept model on display at the EICMA will be very close to the final full production model, in both specification and performance.
What makes the Tricity exceptional is the fact that it is significantly lighter and much more compact than existing 3-wheel models, and Yamaha believes that its remarkable agility and easy handling characteristics will appeal to a broad customer base.
Introducing the all new LMW (Leaning Multi Wheel): new 3-wheel Tricity.
Unveiled at the EICMA Show in Milan and available in 2014, the innovative new Tricity is ready to open the door to non-scooter riders who are looking for an alternative to public transport.
Featuring a light and compact 3-wheel design, and driven by a smooth and economical 125cc engine with fully-automatic transmission, the new Tricity LMW concept is designed to bring a commuting revolution to the streets of Europe.
With its compact dimensions and low weight, the Tricity’s 3-wheel design offers a confidence-inspiring and enjoyable ride, while the weather-beating bodywork and large storage space underlines its daily practicality.
Lighter, slimmer and more agile than other 3-wheelers, the Tricity marks a new urban direction for Yamaha, and with its competitive price it has the potential to transform the lives of many urban commuters.
