  • The 3-Wheeler Tricity From Yamaha Now Comes In A 300cc Variant - Class 2A Riders Rejoice!


    SBF
     Share

    First there was Tricity, then Niken and now Yamaha has released the Tricity 300, essentially a big luxo version of Tricity, at a half-way house price. Think of the Tricity 300 as a three-wheeled maxiscooter. It dwarfs the baby Tricity 155 and is also 90kg heavier. Because it can topple over at rest, it has a Standing Assist button. This prevents it from leaning when stopped, so you can sit feet up at the lights, which car drivers behind won’t quite believe. Hit the gas again and the verticality device cancels automatically.

    Two front wheels confer advantages like better front end grip and stopping power and the original Tricity 155 appealed to a very specific group of riders who wanted all the enjoyment and ease of use of riding a scooter, but more grip than a conventional 2-wheel bike.

    881222909_WhatsAppImage2021-08-09at21_03.37(2).thumb.jpeg.06ef2aa825d5cb3375cde4814730c6a4.jpeg

    Bikes like Tricity help to get folks out of motorcars and onto a more compact conveyance to reduce congestion and emissions. This Tricity although in a larger Class 2A format can lane split like a bike but you need to take care. Up front, however, four fork tubes flatten the bumps much better.

    1172734065_WhatsAppImage2021-08-09at21_03.37(3).thumb.jpeg.c08a45cbec9f7b9a89c7141d502ad515.jpeg

    We expect the Tricity 300, which is now available for viewing at Yamaha's exclusive agent Hong Leong Corporation Pte Ltd, to be priced similarly to the 400-500cc maxiscooters, even if the engine isn’t as sizeable (292cc, 21kW/29Nm). Just for your context, the Yamaha Tricity 155 has a machine price of S$8,000 (before COE and other fees) and we expect this 300 variant to cost about 50% more).

    10771020_WhatsAppImage2021-08-09at21_03.37(4).thumb.jpeg.36bd0bca17158bb918555d3037e422b3.jpeg

    Moreover, everything is doubled up at the front adding weight, cost and complexity. The original Tricity, a 155, weighed about 150kg; this is 236kg which weighs upon it literally. It takes 14sec to reach 100km/h, and twice that for an 80-120 overtake. You therefore need to pick passing opportunities judiciously. But it cruises effortlessly at 100, using 3.5L/100km on the flat, for a range of 300-350km from its 13L tank. A full tank of RON95 petrol will run you about S$30 if you run the fuel tank dry.

    With larger scooters, CVTs can cause vibration under power, something you notice here. While Tricity 300 handles the open road okay, it’s best on smoother surfaces; it can get a bit of a wallow on through bump-strewn corners. Round town, the Tricity 300 really feels at home, the acceleration off the mark sprightly up to 50km/h.

    1299117646_WhatsAppImage2021-08-09at21_03.37(6).thumb.jpeg.cb99467d5bc5b3b0de0ab934094ea3ad.jpeg

    The added grip of an extra wheel up front gives it outstanding road holding. If you are brave enough, you can lean this machine right up to 42 degrees, to scrape the standard-fit centre stand. That’s front end confidence for you and what normal scooters can't do!

    1111866866_WhatsAppImage2021-08-09at21_03.37(7).thumb.jpeg.e230f4ec9072a0663777abe3de1cef4e.jpeg

    Stopping ability also improves thanks to a greater contact patch. The 300 features unified brakes. Hit the rear one and you get a bit of front stopping power as well.

    Another benefit of that bluff front end is weather protection which is fabulous, even in heavy rain. The big screen is sorted too; no noises, no buffeting. It even clears water off your visor efficiently.

    2035260308_WhatsAppImage2021-08-09at21_03.37(8).thumb.jpeg.97bad6c95af49a6c1e36d4de06be7351.jpeg

    The 300’s a practical thing, able to gobble just about any full face helmet and backpack under the seat (43.5L), so supermarket shop-ups for one are on the cards. A proximity key (or rather, keyless!) is a nice feature too. You can operate the rotary switch that locks the steering, opens the seat, and fires the ignition without slotting the key into anything.

    At the price range that it is, there is nothing quite comparable to the Tricity 300. If you are not adamant about having 2 wheels at the front, then you might consider this Tricity 300 to be an expensive means of achieving added front end stability that some might not need. For S$9,800 machine price - you can buy much the same thing minus the front end sophistication that is the XMax 300.

    1720800476_WhatsAppImage2021-08-09at21_03.38(1).thumb.jpeg.34fe8a2754c5daacfe95fc1dbccdb0cd.jpeg

    It weighs just 180kg, so will be livelier all round, and cheaper to run. It even has TC as standard. Or if you don't need the extra power, you could even just opt for the Class 2B version - Tricity 155 that comes in at S$8,000 machine price. That being said, we've seen more than once on the SingaporeBikes.com forum where someone has been looking to purchase a Tricity 300 so this bike does definitely appeal to some out there.    

    1053278997_WhatsAppImage2021-08-09at21_03.38(2).thumb.jpeg.89c7042f2db2038d7140ec05cb64507f.jpeg
            
    Furthermore, this new 2021 Tricity 300 version gets an LED headlight and also has a pointless parking brake. The Yamaha Tricity 155 isn’t as sophisticated up front as the 300 and out of town it doesn’t deal with sharp bumps as well due to its wheels not being as big (13" vs 14"). However, it is easier to mount, with much lower set foot boards. It too has linked brakes that work nicely, and being lighter you don’t need to bring as much lever pressure to bring the bike to a stop.

    All in all however, this is definitely a very unique bike and if you're lucky the good guys at Hong Leong Corporation might just let it take it for a test ride! More power, more grip, more features, but is the higher price tag worth it? Let us know in the comments section below!

      Yamaha gives its top-tier hyper naked, the MT-10, a roster of upgrades for 2022, with engine and chassis refinements complemented by a range of revisions affecting everything from the bodywork to the electronics package. This streetbike will hit dealerships in Asia in 2022, though as of now there’s no indication when we’ll see the updated MT-10 over here in Singapore. We'll check in with local distributor Hong Leong Corporation and be sure to keep checking this space to find out!

      The 998cc CP4 engine is designed to meet Euro 5 regulations, but retains its spirit with a number of torque-enhancing upgrades. These include new offset steel con-rods, forged aluminum pistons, and direct-plated cylinders. Engineers also revised the fuel-injection settings to provide better torque between 4,000 rpm and 8,000 rpm. The exhaust setup is new too, with titanium downpipes and muffler.

      Both the intake and exhaust systems have been designed to optimize the sound of the bike across the rev range. On the intake side, these revisions include a new air-cleaner box and intake ducts. The ducts are different lengths and each is calibrated to produce a different intake sound depending on engine speed. There are also new Acoustic Amplifier Grilles placed on either side of the fuel tank. These grilles amplify the sound of the bike, particularly for the rider. The exhaust is designed to provide a satisfying tone in the lower revs with the intake soundtrack taking over as the rpm rise.

      The MT-10 features a new Accelerator Position Sensor Grip ride-by-wire system that pairs with the latest Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle. The power delivery settings can be adjusted via four different power delivery modes, with PW-1 geared toward aggressive riding down to PW-4 which provides a more subdued throttle response for rides in slick or wet conditions.
      For those who have a tough time keeping speeds down, Yamaha provides a new Variable Speed Limiter, allowing riders to set a top speed. The 2022 MT-10 will also come with a standard Quick Shift System and assist and slipper clutch.

      The bike utilizes a YZF-R1-derived aluminum Deltabox frame suspended by a fully adjustable KYB fork and shock. Braking feel is improved thanks to a new Brembo radial master cylinder. This improvement complements the MT-10′s Brake Control system, which allows the rider to select between two modes in order to optimize pressure applied to the front and rear discs. Five-spoke aluminum wheels are wrapped in Bridgestone Battlax Hypersport S22 tires.

      In the looks department, the MT-10 gets a thorough refresh. The bike is stripped down compared to last year’s model and gets a new look at the front thanks to new twin-eye, mono-focus LED headlights. The nose assembly is revised, and larger ducts flank the fuel tank. The LED taillight is smaller than before. The handlebar, footrests, and seat are also slightly revised to improve rider comfort in the saddle.

      Electronics updates include a new six-axis IMU along with updated lean-sensitive traction control, slide control, lift control, and engine-brake management systems. Yamaha Ride Control is also optimized, providing riders four different modes to choose from. Ride and bike setting information is displayed on a new 4.2-inch color TFT instrument panel.

      The new MT-10 will come in three different colorways in Europe: Cyan Storm, Tech Black, or Icon Blue.
