At the EICMA 2013 show, Yamaha is showcasing a concept that it is says gives new direction to the urban commuter category. The Yamaha Tricity is a LMW (Leaning Multi Wheel) scooter which is targeted at people who haven't weighed an alternative to public transport.
Yamaha claims that the Tricity is more agile than other trike offerings from the competition. It is powered by a liquid-cooled 125cc engine, hooked to an automatic transmission. The three-wheeled stance serves to increase the confidence of unfamiliar riders while giving it a unique appearance.
For now, all we know is that the scooter will get functional storage solutions and would be priced competitively.
More details are furnished on the press release below.
