LMW (LeANING MULTI-Wheler, tilted multiple rounds) is the type of motorcycle model exclusively developed by Yamaha. The biggest feature is the three-wheeled configuration of the front two-wheeled and the rear wheels. Currently, the models equipped with the LMW structure are NIKEN and TirCity.
The word Tricity is a combination of numbers three and cities. It represents that the Tricity car series is a model that is quite suitable as commuting models. At present And this time, Tanada Yoko, who was edited by the Motorcycle Magazine, brought us a detailed trial report on the Tricity 300!
Unique front -round shape
[Full length/full width/full height] 2,050mm/815mm/1,470mm
【Car Weight】 237kg
【Ware distance】 1,595mm
[Minimum departure height] 130mm
There are two front wheels alone, which is the biggest feature of the Tricity car series. The 300cc of the test ride this time is the largest exhaust in the car series. The overall size is slightly larger than the same -class model, and the first two rounds also need more space when parking.
Large cushion but the ground of your feet is not good
Although the height of the cushion is not high 795mm, because the cushion area is wide, when trying the feet on the ground, the rear heel will be suspended for about 5cm, so the groundability of both feet cannot be said. The “auxiliary standing function” is added to the Tricity 300, which will be introduced in detail later.
The headlights, taillights, and direction lights are used as LEDs as a luminous source. The headlight shape has a sense of presence and can recognize it as Tricity 300.
Although the monochrome LCD dashboard is used, the display items include the speed, speed, speed, remaining fuel amount, clock, total mileage, single mileage, average fuel consumption, instantaneous fuel consumption, mileage mileage, transmission belt mileage, tracking control system status, outdoor outdoor, outdoor outdoor Temperature is quite rich and diverse, almost one item.
The Tricity 300 is equipped with the same 292CC water -cooled four -stroke single -cylinder engine as the XMAX 300, with a maximum horsepower of 21kW/7,250rpm, and a maximum torque of 29nm/5,750rpm. Although for the Japanese vehicle inspection system, 250cc that does not need to be inspected is more popular, but the comparison of 237kg of a car weighs, and 300cc engines are more reasonable and practical.
The width of the handle is 795mm. It is completely covered by the plastic cover as the general speed can be completely covered, but the internal use of large diameter steering shafts to increase rigidity and pursue a direct driving experience for sports ride.
Different from the structure of a double A arm or multi -connecting rod, the Tricity 300’s two front wheels are different from each side, and the total four forks are supported by the two front wheels on each side. The Battlax SC, which is designed and designed by the car, has a rigid balance and composite material that is different from general products, and further pursues the grip performance of grip, abrasion resistance and slippery roads.
Tricity 300 three wheels use the NISSIN unilateral single -piston calipers with a fixed disc, but because of the three tires, the Tricity 300 has a good braking performance during the brake, and in the same situation, in the same circumstances The brake distance will also be shorter than ordinary models.
In addition to being equipped with a three -wheeled ABS system, the Tricity 300 is also equipped with a front and rear dynamic brake system. As long as the Cavaliers control the left brake lever, the vehicle will automatically allocate the brake power to the three wheels, so that each knight is all the knights Can enjoy the strong braking performance of tricycle models.
The Tricity 300 is equipped with a Blue Core engine pursuing high fuel efficiency. It reaches 38.4km/L and WMTC mode in a fixed speed dual ride test. Essence
Trace control system
The Tricity 300 is the first TRICITY car series equipped with a trace control system, which allows LMW to maintain the AMW of the front wheel grip and the ABS that prevent locking, as well as a powerful and active safety of the track control system that prevent the rear wheel out of control. Although it cannot be completely avoided, at least it can greatly reduce the fear of the knight when riding on a slippery road; by the way, the track control system can choose to turn on or close.
The fuel tank with a capacity of 13L is installed in the center of the body, and the plastic cover outside the round refueling mouth is directly turned on through the main lock switch. By the way, the remaining oil volume when the oil volume table of the instrument board starts to flash is about 2.4L. At this time, the vehicle will automatically display a range of mileage to warn the remaining driving distance reminders of the reminders of the remaining driving distance.
The cushion itself and the hinge structure are shared with XMAX 300. Although the back seat and the back are a bit far away from Asians, the surface stopping effect on the surface is quite obvious and the comfort of ride is also very good. The reduction of the seat cushion with a reducing level of 40mm can be selected.
Unlike Tricity 125/155, the pedal of Tricity 300 is not flat design, but a keel structure with fuel tanks in the center. At the same time, this is also a proof of fast -moving models pursuing sports performance.
Because the front two -wheeled structure is large, the length of the pedal is not long, but although the pedal space on both sides is narrow but the length is enough, even if it is a tall knight, the feet will not have any places.
There is a 45L storage space containing LED lighting below the cushion. The maximum can be placed at the same time at the same time, or a helmet and a A4 -sized briefcase. The cushion is also turned on from the main lock switch, and the hinge has a damping structure. Avoid opening the cushion and accidentally hit the knight.
From the launch, the fuel tank cover, the opening of the cushion, the faucet, etc., the smart key can be done. As long as the car owner takes the smart key to the body, once you close the car, you can operate the above functions, and it also has a warning function to prevent the owner from not in the owner who does not have any Leaving the car when the electric door is closed, and the response function of the vehicle in the motorcycle parking lot is also available.
Charging socket/parking brake
There is a 12V1A DC power socket on the right side of the hand, and there is a parking brake on the left. As long as you pull the lever, you can lock the hub brake in the rear wheel.
In addition to the essential side of the motorcycle model, the Tricity 300 is also equipped with a central station. Therefore, it is recommended to open the auxiliary standing function when parking, and then stand up directly.
In this way, in addition to increasing the stability of the parking, the motorcycle will not fall when it is put down, it will definitely make people feel very at ease. Of course, the Cavaliers can also choose to stand on the side parking frame to park. If you need it, you can also choose a side parking frame+to open the auxiliary standing function parking method.
In addition to the switch of the right hand switch and the integration of the emergency flameout function and the emergency warning button, because there are no buttons around the dashboard, the “SEL / Res” button on the right switch must be performed. The control of the control, the opening and closing of the track control is also the button operation.
The hand switch on the left side not only has a long/in -light button to integrate the overtaking light, but also an auxiliary standing button in addition to the direction lights and horn.
Comfortable and reassuring riding performance, the “luxury station wagon” of the Suda world
The Tricity 300 with two front wheels is the LMW model launched by Yamaha’s fourth wave. It is also the latest model launched by Yamaha after Tricity 125, Tricity 155, and Niken equipped with the MT-09 engine.
The use occasions of this test ride include commuting and urban movement. Regarding the biggest feature of the new LMW car, the “auxiliary standing function” will be mentioned in the final summary part. First of all, let us introduce this test ride experience from the perspective of ordinary Speedda.
The author’s initial impression of the Tricity 300 was that the engine was very smooth. Its vibration is very small, and it is very brisk when pulling the speed. It is not a light car body that can be easily moved forward. The connection of the automatic clutch is not abrupt at all. Chenghui barely pulls the speed, so the quiet and smooth engine characteristics of the Tricity 300 become more obvious.
During the test ride, the author actually rides it on the capital highway, and the Tricity 300 can also play enough horsepower on the highway. It will not make people feel uneasy at all, and it feels similar to the light car with 250cc.
Although I do n’t know why Yamaha sets up 300cc that does not set the exhaust volume or even requires a car inspection, I think it should be the heavier 237kg car body that wants to use the LMW device to run easily, so exhaust exhaust Naturally, the amount must be larger than 250cc.
LMW is the abbreviation of “Leaning Multi Wheel”, which refers to all tires that can be tilted with the car body like ordinary two tires, and the total number of tires is more than 3 or more. Device, so the front half of the car will naturally become quite bulky, but the sense of stability will be more stable than a motorcycle with only one front wheel. The front wheels can feel the grip when it is easy to slide, and even when encountering bad road conditions, the two front wheels can also absorb the impact caused by the uneven road surface, so the motorcycle is not easy to shake.
For example, even if it is inclined to ride on the road shoulder, there is a high and low place to enter the parking lot. In this kind of ordinary motorcycle, you need to pay attention to the situation that the tilt angle should not be too small. The Tricity 300 has a separate difference in the front wheels. The road surface, so it can naturally ride smoothly.
Although the author has not encountered the condition of the track control system during the test ride, there is a trace control system that makes people feel particularly at ease.
The LMW model is basically a parallel link design such as the ParalleLogram connecting rod, and the Tricity 300 also adds the same Akman to geometry like Niken. Simply put, Tricity125/155 often (roughly) is in a parallel cross -cutting state during the rudder.
Niken and Tricity 300, which adopt Akman to geometry, are adjusted to all tires to right angles (compared to the center point of the turning). Although the appearance of the left and right front wheels appears errors on the outside, this will make the entire car ride more naturally.
Incidentally, for the 14 -inch tires at this level, at this level, it is a standard tire size. For the “absorption” performance on the uneven road surface, although the left and right front wheels are quite good, they can absorb the impact force separately, but if it is directly ride from the front to the place where there is a high and low difference, the two front wheels will bear the same time at the same time. When the impact force, it will hit the heavily like the Sudda of the ordinary 14 -inch tires. Because of the heavy relationship of the car, the feeling of hitting the ground will be more obvious.
Nevertheless, if it is the street riding in daily life, you can feel the excellent stability and absorption ability of the front wheel in most ride scenes, and there is a common rear wheel.
In terms of brakes, because of the two front wheels, the brake performance is very powerful. Because the two front wheels are equipped with disc brake devices, they naturally have powerful braking power, but more importantly, this car can “let the knight brake with confidence.”
Its brake is not the kind of sharp feeling, but can exert its motivation very smoothly. The brake itself uses a system of front and rear motors, which can adjust the braking force of the front and rear wheels to the most suitable proportion. Although the left and right brake tie rods are right: pay attention to the front wheel / left: the feeling of the rear wheels, but including the capital high -speed speed, but including in the capital high -speed speed, Road and other places, whether the speed is fast and slow, it makes you feel very natural.
The new “auxiliary standing function”!
The next thing to introduce is the long -awaited feature of everyone, the first auxiliary station function used on Yamaha’s LMW model. This device is to lock the brake disc inside the front wheels through the electric brake calipers, so that the knight can fix the car body in the upright state in any ride scene.
The operation of the auxiliary standing function itself is quite simple. When you press and hold the switch near the left -hand finger below 10km/h at a speed of 10km/h, the auxiliary standing function will be activated. If you want to unlock the lock can.
The author first tried to use this feature when starting and waiting for the traffic lights. Park in a normal way, step on the ground to stand straight on the ground, and then press the switch. Then you will hear a loud warning sound “forced–“, and then the system will start to move. The car body will automatically maintain in a state of upright. Sit on the motorcycle and wait for the red light to become a green light.
If you are on the uphill section, you can choose to hold down the brake lever or use a parking brake (don’t forget to let go). This function is really comfortable. As long as you urge the throttle, you will automatically lock the lock when you hear the sound of “forcing -forcing-“, and then you can start ride normally.
In fact, the Tricity 300 feels much higher than its cushion 795mm. Because of this, I will try to try to see if the feet are completely unwilling to the ground, and then the start of the start is also human. If If the auxiliary function is moved again before stopping, you can park successfully without the ground.
Because the auxiliary standing function needs to be started at 10km/h at a speed of 10km/h, it becomes very important to press the time point of the switch. If it is a normal deceleration, it is probably the most critical of the last 2M before parking. At that time, the numbers on the speed meter decreased in order from 40 … 30 … 20. Perform the left and right balance.
Note that before stopping completely, motorcycles are likely to have very obvious snake shaking. This also allows the author to experience the ultimate goal of “keeping the car body vertical and stop” again, then even if it is the last 1 to 2 seconds, the Cavaliers still need to constantly adjust the balance. Because the auxiliary standing device is activated in the state of adjusting the balance, if there is no card to the “best position”, it will make the car body stop in a tilted state.
The advantage of auxiliary standing device below is that even if you encounter a traffic jam, you can still keep people a relaxed mood. The author accidentally found that this device could let the knight’s feet from keeping the trouble from the ground, and it would not make people think that it was a bad idea to “just shuttle in the car array” because of the traffic jam.
The ride performance of the Tricity 300 has the lively characteristics of Suda and the sense of stability and peace of mind. Compared to the Tricity 125/155 with a strong urban commute car style, even the range of the Tricity 300 in the area of the tiricity 300 in the relatively smooth and smooth engine in Europe, which is more than The performance is very good with the sense of stability of the LMW car and the auxiliary standing function.
The Tricity 300 is not a car that is simply provided to the Cavaliers for fast commuting. It is also a luxurious shuttle bus that allows the Cavaliers to put luggage under the cushion and ride directly to travel to travel.
