Yamaha Tricity Overview
The three-wheeled Yamaha Tricity was introduced in 2014 and later updated in 2017. This Yamaha is powered by a 125cc engine which produces 12bhp and a maximum torque of 7,250rpm.
A three-wheeled scooter may be the preferred option for new riders finding their feet on the road, with easier balance and control thanks to the help of the extra wheel. This is not what you are looking for if speed and power is your thing, though it is considered perfect as your first step into riding and learning the rules of the road.
Handy features include a large storage compartment under the seat, as well as modern LED front lights and a unified braking system.
In a very niche market, the Yamaha Tricity is considered very light for a three-wheeler, weighing in at 164kg (wet).
Thanks to the three wheels the Tricity is always going to attract attention, though you do get a choice of colours to add to the unique appearance, black, grey, white and red being the options.
