Yamaha Tricity, a weird, innovative three-wheeled scooter 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.
When parked, it looks more or less like you’re average scooter, but thanks to a front axle that can keep the front wheels parallel, like past offerings from Piaggio, this scooter is able to lean through turns while remaining stable when riding straight.
