Yamaha Motor is promoting “the growing world of personal
mobility” as one of the growth strategies outlined in the Medium-Term
Management Plan, and LMW technology is one of the central pillars of this
strategy. Beginning with the TRICITY125 (launched in 2014), and continuing with
the TRICITY155 (on sale from 2017) capable of riding on freeways2 and the NIKEN
(launched in 2018), which with its 845cm3 engine is the first large sports
model LMW, Yamaha has expanded its LMW product lineup.
The 3CT is a sports commuter prototype model with the
distinctive LMW two front wheel mechanism. By combining LMW features such as a
superb sense of stability while turning with a 300cm3 engine, the 3CT delivers
both sporty and comfortable weekday commuting as well as enjoyable weekend

Yamaha engineers have greatly upgraded the YZF-R125, which now aims to compete at
the top of the 125 cc supersport list, thanks to an all-new liquid-cooled
4-valve engine as well as a completely redesigned frame. The YZF-R125 engine,
conceived with VVA (Variable Valve Actuation) system, is expected to deliver
more torque and broader, smoother power from low to mid rpm. Some novelties
also come from the frame, the lightweight aluminium swingarm along with a unique
design of the fairing inspired by the Yamaha’s YZR- M1 MotoGP race bike.
Since the arrival of the first MT-09, 5 years ago, the Hyper Naked range has grown rapidly to
include a total of seven models, from the flagship MT-10 SP through to the
MT-125. For 2019 Yamaha takes the MT’s aggressive and streetwise image to the
next level with an evolution of the Fluo concept adding… a new Ice Fluo colour.
It consists of an ice-grey body colour contrasted by fluorescent red wheels and
a black engine, frame, forks and headlamp, with tuning fork logos on the tank
or air ducts. The new Ice Fluo colour option will be offered on each MT Hyper Naked model (except SP
versions that feature exclusive colours), while the Yamaha Blue and Tech Black
variants will continue.
Yamaha technicians carefully redesign its silhouette, which is now more
aerodynamic and sleek. A reliable 321cc liquid-cooled, four-stroke, in-line
twin-cylinder engine at the heart of the YZF-R3 is still maintained as well as
a lightweight steel tubular frame. To help achieve the perfect combination of
comfort and sport riding performance the 2019 YZF-R3 features all-new KYB 37 mm
inverted front forks along with 32 degrees handlebar steering range.
