Yamaha has showcased its premium scooters, the Yamaha TMax 530 and the Yamaha Tricity 155 at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show. Here are the live images of the scooters from the show.
Yamaha TMax 530:
The Yamaha TMax 530 is a sporty scooter from Yamaha, with premium underpinnings. The scooter comes with twin LED headlamps, and a twin-pod analogue instrument cluster with a digital inset in-between. The display model is the DX variant that comes with an electrically adjustable windscreen, cruise control, heated handlebars and rider’s seat. D-mode, traction control system and smart key are standard as well.
The scooter draws power from a 530cc inline twin cylinder engine. The DOHC water-cooled mill makes 46 PS at 6,750 rpm, and 53 Nm at 5,250 rpm. The engine pairs with an automatic transmission that transfers power to the rear wheel using a belt drive. An upside down front fork and a link-type rear monoshock hold the diamond frame. Twin 267 mm front discs with radial callipers, and single 282 mm rear disc handle the braking responsibility. The scooter costs 1,350,000 (MSRP) in Japan.
Yamaha Tricity 155:
The Yamaha Tricity is a three-wheeled scooter that features Yamaha’s Leaning Multi-Wheel (LMW) technology. The scooter comes with two front wheels that boost mechanical grip and assist in handling across a variety of road conditions. The underseat storage capacity stands at 23.5 litres, and the front apron gets a small compartment that houses a 12V DC outlet.
The Yamaha Tricity 155 employs a 155cc single cylinder engine with liquid cooling and fuel injection. The SOHC mill is capable of generating 15 PS at 8,000 rpm and 14 Nm at 6,000 rpm. The engine works in tandem with an automatic transmission. The two front wheels come with twin telescopic forks mounted on the inside. The rear gets twin hydraulic shock absorbers. Twin discs at the front and a single disc at the rear feature UBS (unified brake system) and ABS. Yamaha has priced the scooter at 453,600 Yen, MSRP in the Japanese market.
