Yamaha Motor Australia announced that the Tricity 300 leaning multi-wheel bike will be hitting Australian Yamaha dealerships now. The new bike will be a good option for city commuters and people looking for good everyday transportation.
The Tricity 300 gets an all-new Blue Core 292cc liquid-cooled four-stroke engine that’s mated to a CVT. This means it’s a twist-n-go machine and very easy to ride.
The thing that makes this machine special is its leaning multi-wheel steering. The bike has three wheels but it leans like a motorcycle thanks to the unique front suspension setup. The bike also has what Yamaha calls Standing Assist, which helps keep the machine upright when stopped. This makes it even easier to ride.
The bike has typical scooter styling and design for the most part with generous under-seat storage (43.5 liters) for helmets. It comes with LED headlight, flashers, and taillight. The bike also gets an LCD information cluster that’s easy to read with a digital speedometer, bar-style tach, a clock, odometer, and trip odometer.
The Tricity 300 also comes with lighting for ABS, Standing Assist, TCS, and temperature. There’s also a parking brake to use. If you need to charge a device, such as a smartphone, the bike has a DC outlet for you to use. Disc brakes provide stopping power both up-front and in the rear.
The price of the Tricity 300 is $11,849 ride away. It is available in only one color and that’s the kind of drab Nimbus Grey color you see in the image above.
