Yamaha has unveiled its on-going commitment to motorcycle innovation this morning at the Cologne Show, by revealing its new three-cylinder P3 engine.

Along with the expected unveiling of an updated FJR1300 and FZ8, plus new Aerox scooters, Yamaha has provided one of the talking points of the cologne Show with the unveiling of this all new three cylinder engine, which will form the basis of at least one new bike in the very near future.

They acknowledged that although there had been seemingly little activity from them in recent years they are more committed to motorcycling than ever.

The new engine, dubbed P3, is the first three cylinder from Yamaha since the XS750 from the late 1970s, and is claimed to herald a new direction for the Japanese firm.

Andrew Smith, Vice-President Sales and Marketing Yamaha Motor Europe,  told show goers ‘Here Yamaha’s commitment to motorcycling starts again.’
