Yamaha continues to explore ranging from design to technology. And now the renowned Japanese motorcycle manufacturer introduced the prototype version of Yamaha OR2T. A glimpse of this motorcycle like a regular bike, but when we examined more carefully turned out to have 4 wheels.

The principle is similar to the MWT-9 model which has three wheels. All of wheels are equipped with separated suspensions and each suspension works using sensors that can adjust the control of the motorcycle. For example, when the OR2T in cornering conditions, one of the wheel suspensions would be down following the direction of the controlling position of motorcycle.

In its official statement, Yamaha explains that the OR2T was a prototype product developed from the Tesseract model. However, it has undergone several changes such as the renewal of the suspension system and the use of smaller wheels.
