Yamaha reveals new Tricity 300 and MW-Vision at 2019 Tokyo Motor Show

Yamaha Motor has revealed two completely new world premiere models at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show, the Tricity 300 and the MW-Vision concept, both displaying Yamaha’s Leaning Multi-Wheelers (LMW) technology.

New Yamaha 3-wheel model targets the premium Urban Mobility sector
Yamaha is one of the leading names in 3-wheel motorcycle technology, and the company is now ready to revitalise the Urban Mobility segment with the new Tricity 300, a premium multi-wheel model that brings a fresh new look to this important part of the European marketplace.

Drawing on the in-depth knowledge gained from the development and production of the Tricity 125 and NIKEN Leaning Multi Wheel (LMW) models, Yamaha’s designers have created a fashionable, modern and dynamic 3-wheel scooter that is targeted at the top end of the market. Based closely on the 3CT prototype that attracted huge interest when it first went on display in 2018, the Tricity 300 is ready to make a great impression in 2020 with its best-in-class specification, competitive price and unrivalled quality.

This new 3-wheel Urban Mobility scooter is equipped with a ‘BLUE CORE’ engine as well as a model-specific Leaning Multi Wheel steering linkage. The Tricity 300’s leaning front wheels give a natural and confident cornering character, and the high levels of traction offered by the two front wheels reinforce the feelings of stability, even on wet or slippery surfaces.

Featuring a sleek design, the Tricity 300 is aimed squarely at the top end of the Urban Mobility segment. In contrast to many current multi-wheel models, Yamaha anticipate that the majority of the demand will come from style and tech-conscious male urban commuters who are looking for an innovative, accessible and practical alternative to the car.

The Tricity 300 will be available three colours, Tech Kamo, Nimbus Grey and Matt Grey, with Yamaha releasing further details at the EICMA show in November.


This next-generation personal mobility concept model uses LMW* Technology and represents a proposal for a new relationship between users and their vehicles. It was developed with the aim of bringing to people new Kando from the exhilaration of leaning as one with the machine through corners—enabled by the LMW platform—with greater comfort and peace of mind. It is also equipped with attitude control technology and reverse drive, and the cocoon-like vehicle body is easy to handle and maneuver. With approaches like interactive communication between the user and the vehicle through sound and light for all-new mobility experiences, the YAMAHA MW-VISION suggests how the fusion of robotics and mobility technologies can produce forms of mobility more in tune with human sensitivities.
