Yamaha has taken the urban mobility idea to the next level with the introduction of the all-new Tricity 300. This is a modern three wheel model with the high specification and the premium build quality we’ve come to expect from Yamaha. It’s also ideal for first time riders.
Rather interestingly, the Yamaha Tricity 300 can be ridden by customers who possess a full 'B' car licence. There is no need for an additional licence. It’s Yamaha-exclusive Leaning Multi Wheel system gives it agile and confident handling. Having two front wheels means that the rider benefits from additional front-end traction and plenty of braking power from two front discs. This reinforces the feeling of stability and therefore, rider happiness.
The lightweight chassis features a front-rear weight distribution of around 50:50 with a rider on board. This, together with optimised steering geometry, contributes towards the Tricity 300's natural steering and excellent stability. In turn, this makes it ideally suited to riders who may be new to two or three wheels. You have nothing to fear!
The new bike is driven by the companies latest Blue Core engine. This is one of the most sophisticated designs in the category that offers a perfect balance of performance, economy and versatility. The liquid-cooled 4-stroke SOHC 300cc four valve single cylinder engine delivers great fuel efficiency and eco-friendliness.
Now the Yamaha Tricity 300 includes a number of premium features, including large diameter disc brakes with a unified braking system and ABS for greater controllability on a wide range of road surfaces. Its spacious underseat storage can accommodate no less than two full-face helmets! The compartment is even fitted with internal LED lighting. There is also smart key operation and a traction control system. It has easy-to-read LCD instruments and a parking brake.
The feature we find most interesting is its Standing Assist system. This provides extra convenience by helping the machine to remain upright when stopped. As soon as the throttle is opened the Standing Assist system disengages automatically, enabling the rider to pull away smoothly and effortlessly. By helping to keep the Tricity 300 temporarily in an upright position, the Standing Assist system also makes it easier when placing the vehicle on its main stand. See, we told you there was nothing to worry about!
