The Japanese automaker Yamaha had already experimented with the creation of the original vehicle, and the company clearly decided to continue the established tradition. At the Tokyo Motor Show, she presented her new development - the Tritown single-seat three-wheeled scooter, which the group's engineers are already actively testing in the field.
The main mechanism for controlling unusual vehicles is the front wheels, which tilt depending on the position of the driver’s body. The proprietary design of the Leaning Multi-Wheel gives the scooter the ability to fit neatly even into dashing turns. Unlike a motorcycle, the steps, in this case, will remain at the same level, and the scooter itself will not roll over during an abrupt stop. The tilt system is activated via a steering column lock mechanism, and the throttle integrated into the steering wheel is controlled by the thumbs of the rider.
Although the new product a little more than a meter long and weighing 40 kilograms seems a little unusual, Yamaha representatives are confident in its commercial success. The management of the company is convinced that Tritown will be popular in resorts and recreation centers around the world. Upon completion of testing, the concern plans to start mass production of concept vehicles.
