As part of Yamaha’s Urban Mobility vehicles, the firm have tonight unveiled a prototype three-wheeler, the 3CT, at EICMA 2018.

Using the successful Trinity 125, first released in 2015, as a base, Yamaha have created the 3CT to further reflect their vision for future commuters, aiming to give a wide range of riders the ability to operate over a wider range, enabling long distance commuting into the city and easier filtering options in traffic.


The 3CT is powered by the new Blue Core 300cc engine, which has been one of the key elements that has contributed to making the XMAX 300.

More 3CT features include:

- Innovative Tilt Lock Assist

Using a Tilt Lock Assist system, the 3CT aims to support the rider at a stop while
remaining upright. The TLA does not lock the front suspension to help create ease when
in stop and go maneuvers and to aid pushing it around in say, parking situations.

- Stylish scooter

The 3CT’s paintscheme features a patchwork of colours randomly shaped as 'jigsaw'
pieces consisting of numerous different striped patterns. The wheels and chassis are
predominantly grey with electric blue accents easily spotted around the scooter.

- 3D printed seat with LED lights

A first for one of Yamaha's machines, is the 3D printed seat.

In order to promote the future, Yamaha's new concept is introducing the firm's 'Move.Live.Love' motto - basically meaning that a scooter like this can give any rider the ultimate freedom. 

We think it sounds like fun from the off, but what do you think, does the 3CT tickle your fancy?
