Yamaha 03GEN-f Concept

Yamaha Motor released two concept trikes today, based on the company’s “refined dynamism design” philosophy. Both concepts build off the leaning multi-wheel (LMW) Yamaha Tricity, which is a trike that uses two wheels in the front and one wheel in the back.

Built like a scooter, with a feet-forward sitting position, Yamaha’s 03GEN-f concept expands on the Tricity’s on-road focus, but with sportier motion in mind.

Yamaha says that it will continue to explore concepts under the “GEN” name, meaning we could see some more LWM models from the tuning fork brand in the future.

    I’d love to have something like this with decent power that can handle
    the freeway with no problems. And also good built in storage capacity.
    I’d use it primarily for winter riding in rough weather.

    It’s the leaning part that would sell me on it, I think. That just looks like so much fun.

    I like the styling. The seat area design is a total rip off of the Vespa 946, which if fine because it’s awesome (the 946 is simply beautiful). 125cc though isn’t enough. The extra weight of the suspension, and the added rolling resistance of the second tire means that it will barely be able to get out of it’s own way. Remember how anemic the Piaggio MP3 with the 250 engine was? It wasn’t even worth riding, except you could rail through the corners once you got it up to speed. This looks waaaaaay lighter, but still 125cc? No thanks, not in this country where the only thing that saves you from the texting, eating, cellphone yakking, coffee drinking, make-up applying, infotainment center fiddling, day dreaming, plodding morons behind the steering wheel of their steel cocoons, is enough low end torque to move you out of the path of their stupidity.

    I could picture something like this becoming popular in cities like Seattle if it comes fully electric.

    Needs at least 40L of storage under the seat, tall and wide enough to hold an XL full-face lid, before I would consider buying one.

    Riding a scooter is more dangerous than riding a bicycle!
