Among the motorcycles exhibited by Yamaha Motor Company at the 46th Tokyo Motor Show and EICMA this year are the TRICITY300 and YZF-R1.

TRICITY300
City Commuter TRICITY300 at displayed at EICMA “To someday create motorcycles that lean, but do not fall” – 4th model with LMW technology. TRICITY300 is designed and positioned as a middle class LMW in line with the concept of “The Smartest Commuting Way.” Providing comfort coupled with a sense of security for urban commuting, the TRICITY300 combines LMW technology that produces excellent stability and natural handling when turning, and the powerful “BLUE CORE” engine with its excellent environmental performance. Further, the TRICITY300 is the first production motorcycle from Yamaha to feature a Tilt-lock Assist system to help the vehicle remain upright, adding a new layer of comfort and riding convenience.

Based on Yamaha Motor’s long-term vision “ART for Human Possibilities,” this new model is part of the company’s growth strategy as we head to 2030. In “Transforming Mobility,” one of the company’s specific focus areas, we aim to help expand the world of mobility by providing fun and peace of mind with LMW technology.

YZF-R1
As Yamaha’s flagship supersport motorcycle, the latest YZF-R1 was designed and engineered with the performance to win on the racetrack under the
concept of a “Full Control Evolution for the Master of the Racetrack.” While providing eco-friendliness meeting EU5 emission standards, the crossplane engine has been further refined and the model gains two more electronic rider aids: Engine Brake Management (EBM) and Brake Control (BC). Further development of various parts of the chassis take the model’s racetrack-focused performance to a new level.
