Yamaha unveils the pricing of the new Tricity 300, as well as three accessory pack options
Urban Mobility the smartest choice
Yamaha is taking the Urban Mobility segment to the next level with the introduction of the all-new Tricity 300 – a smart and modern 3-wheel scooter with a best-in-class specification and premium build quality. Its dynamic styling brings a fresh and sporty new look to the city streets – and being the lightest model in its class makes it ideal for first-time customers.
Easy to ride and accessible to ‘B’ licence car drivers*
The Tricity 300 can be ridden by customers who possess a full ‘B’ car licence. Its Yamaha-exclusive Leaning Multi Wheel (LMW) system gives sporty, agile and confident handling with a user-friendly character. Two front wheels means that the rider benefits from additional front-end traction and plenty of braking power from two front discs, which together reinforce the feeling of stability.
The lightweight chassis features a front-rear weight distribution of around 50:50 with a rider on board, and this – together with optimised steering geometry – contributes towards the Tricity 300’s natural steering and excellent stability, making it ideally suited to riders who may be new to 2 or 3 wheels.
Dynamic sports styling
By blending styling cues from Yamaha‘s best-selling MAX Sport Scooters together with a touch of DNA from the prestigious NIKEN Sport Touring motorcycle, the Tricity 300 is one of the most dynamic looking 3-wheel models in its class. Its short and narrow nose emphasises the light and agile character – and the large diameter 14-inch front wheels and wide 120-section tyres convey a feeling of front-end stability and traction.
Powerful, smooth and economical BLUE CORE engine
The new Tricity 300 is driven by Yamaha‘s latest BLUE CORE engine – one of the most sophisticated designs in the category, offering an ideal balance of performance, economy and versatility. The liquid-cooled, 4-stroke, SOHC, 300cc, 4-valve, single-cylinder engine is based on the advanced design used by the best-selling XMAX 300 Sport Scooter and delivers strong acceleration together with good fuel efficiency and eco-friendliness.
As well as being the lightest model in its class, the Tricity 300’s high specification 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 two full-face helmets or one full-face helmet and an A4-sized briefcase, and the compartment is fitted with internal LED lighting. Other standard features include Smart Key operation and a Traction Control System, as well as easy-to-read LCD instruments and a parking brake.
Standing Assist system for extra convenience
A key feature on the new Tricity 300 is its Standing Assist system that 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.
New Accessory Packs and wide range of Genuine Accessories
Every customer has their own unique lifestyle with a different set of priorities, and Yamaha has developed three new Accessory Packs with a range of carefully selected products to match individual requirements.
Featuring a Sports Screen, License Plate Holder and Aluminium Foot Panels, the Sports Pack delivers an extra dose of dynamism and even sportier looks! With its feelings of stability and confidence, the Tricity 300 is ideal for year round riding, and the Winter Pack comes with an Apron, Grip Heater and Knuckle Visors for increased comfort in cold and bad weather. For added practicality and convenience the Urban Pack incorporates a High Screen, Rear Carrier and 39L Top Case that make the Tricity 300 an even more effective commuter.
Yamaha‘s range of individual accessories for the Tricity 300 is constantly evolving, and the comprehensive line-up is now joined by a number of new products including a choice of slip-on mufflers, a catalytic converter, and a comfort seat. Each product featured in the three new Accessory Packs can also be purchased individually, enabling customers to create their very own Tricity 300 to match their needs and desires.
