The two front wheels of this new 125cc commuter model use Yamaha’s exclusive Leaning Multi Wheel (LMW) mechanism, allowing them to lean with the chassis when cornering. The front wheels’ independent suspensions and link mechanism combine with the optimized front-rear weight distribution to provide a comfortable ride and a whole new kind of enjoyment. A flat footboard for ease in getting on/off the machine, spacious underseat storage and more add convenience as a commuter vehicle. The exterior styling accentuates the two front wheels in a design that is unique, yet still familiar.
