Seeing Yamaha's effort to bridge the difference between cars and motorbikes

Yamaha, one of the leading motorcycle manufacturers from Japan seems to be increasingly serious about exploring the 4-wheeled vehicle competition arena. After showing off their Cross Hub concept car, they are now introducing the Yamaha MWC-4 Concept at the 45th Tokyo Motor Show 2017. This concept can be said as a bridge that connects between Yamaha-made motorcycles and the dynamics of a car.

Yamaha MWC-4 was born from a consideration of the possibility of personal mobility coming from motorbikes, and was developed with the concept of Medium Size Mobility. Then the Leaning Multi-Wheel (LMW) vehicle was created with two front and rear wheels. And LMW is the name of Yamaha for vehicles with three or more wheels that can be enjoyed like motorbikes in turn.

Visually, Yamaha MWC-4 has a minimum body panel, and all four wheels have a tire as wide as a motorcycle. In addition, Yamaha MWC-4 is also controlled with a handlebar instead of a steering wheel, so it able to cornering like a motorcycle. However, Yamaha MWC-4 has a roof and windshield like a car, and can be boarded by 2 people with tandem positions.

Yamaha explained as well that the MWC-4 is a hybrid vehicle that has a pair of liquid-cooled dual electric motors and gasoline engine driving power to strengthen the power plant as well as functioning as a means of increasing its cruising distance.

Yamaha MWC-4 has a dimension of 2,680 mm in length, 900 mm in width, and 1,480 mm in height. This vehicle is also equipped with attitude control technology, where the MWC-4 will provide a ride that feels good and the level of comfort not found on any conventional motorcycle. This is all expressed in styling inspired by the features of motorbikes and musical instruments.

At the same time, various elements such as the metal frame surrounding the driver and passengers and the feel of a semi-open cabin that is free and unobstructed from the left side, such as riding a motorcycle, expresses the true motorbike world with a unique style from Yamaha.
Kept spur your adrenaline on the power of two-wheeled monster and stay alive with the true safety riding. May God will forgive Your sins and so does the cops...... *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | YAMAHA | NEW ATLAS]
