It took about one year for Yamaha to realize this motorbike from the beginning it was only a concept version named Yamaha 3CT that was shown at EICMA last year, until later it became a mass-production version for the global market, with the name Tricity 300. And it is possible that this model will also be available in the 250cc version; Yamaha Tricity 250 for the Southeast Asian market.
This Yamaha Tricity 300 also adds to the line-up of the Yamaha Tricity series variant which initially only there was a Yamaha Tricity 125 then Yamaha Tricity 155 also appeared, and now there are 300cc and 250cc versions. So what’s the difference with Xmax series?
Unfortunately, Yamaha Europe and Japan still do not mention details about the engine specifications. But if you look at the exhaust design it seems identical to the Xmax engine. The difference is this Yamaha Tricity 300 uses LMW technology or Leaning Multi Wheel system where the front uses 2 wheels that make it more stable when cornering. LMW design is the same as that used for the Bigbike variant, Yamaha Niken.
But despite having similarities with other Tricity series, the headlamp has a different design. More visible and futuristic with dual headlamps and higher windshield. And there is a pedal on the deck that seems to be an additional rear brake feature.
For the price, Yamaha Japan has not yet announced it, and it looks like the Yamaha Tricity 300 will add a line up of new Yamaha products to the global market in 2020. For now, let’s just enjoy seeing the pictures first:
