Patrick was invited to the Yamaha Tricity Grand Launch at the MOA Concert Grounds and we went along with him.
The Yamaha Tricity is built with a revolutionary design called the Leaning Multi Wheel or LMW. "This system allows two front wheels to deal with changes in different road surfaces while keeping both tires in contact with the road as it leans. It provides a unique experience during each ride that is felt in every turn; any angle; surpassing the standards of style, performance, and technological innovation. "
We saw it in motion at the Test Drive Area and it was exciting to behold on the road :)
We arrived around lunchtime and the test drive was underway. We were offered free lunch at the nearby Savory restaurant.
There wasn't much of a crowd by the time we returned probably because everyone was either still having lunch or avoiding the harsh sun. It was perfect for us as we went around and took pictures because we had the area to ourselves. At first, we simply took pictures with the bikes as the background because we weren't sure if we're allowed to ride them. The kids loved the London and the Louvre Museum backgrounds :)
Now, when we were sure that it's safe and okay to ride on the Yamaha Tricity motorcycles on display, we took a few more pictures :)
We stood and watched the on-going presentation they had on the revolutionary engineering and design of the Yamaha Tricity motorbikes.
*A PARALLELOGRAM LINK, a system that allows the parallel leaning of two front wheels and separate functioning of independent suspensions.
*A CANTILEVERED TELESCOPIC SUSPENSION for the two front wheels with unique machine dimensions and geometry.
How I wish I were able to test drive it but I don't have a driver's license hahaha But it really looked cool to drive. It looked especially balanced and comfortable too.
