Yamaha 03GEN-F and 03GEN-X - FIRST LOOK

Wild new concepts prove that Yamaha keeps looking for new ways to enhance personal mobility.

2015 Yamaha 03Gen-F concept bike

Yamaha continues to probe the unique possibilities that the "Leaning Multi Wheel" front suspension of the Tricity scooter might offer. Under the code name "GEN," Yamaha has created a generation of concept vehicles that explore new solutions for individual mobility, all created in a way that reflects the company's "Refined Dynamism" design philosophy.

The Yamaha 01GEN of 2013, you may recall, was a large three-wheel motorcycle. The Yamaha 02GEN, which followed the 01GEN, was an electric-powered wheelchair!

Now, Yamaha has created two more concept vehicles, the 03GEN-f and 03GEN-x, both of which have similar chassis and employ the Leaning Multi Wheel front suspension. The Yamaha 03GEN-f is the “future racing” concept. As such, it features a streamlined body, 17-inch sport wheels, radial tires, and a powerful three-disc braking system. The Yamaha 03GEN-x is the f’s rougher and starker counterpart, fitted with spoke wheels, knobby tires, and daisy-style rotors for the front disc brakes.

Will these concepts materialize into some form of production Yamaha? At this point, your guess is as good as ours.
