Japanese two-wheeler giant Yamaha is all set to unveil a slew of new motorcycles for the upcoming 44th Tokyo Motor Show, which is scheduled to begin from 29 October.
The highlight of the Yamaha booth, with the theme christened as 'Yamaha Motor Product Orchestra', will be the new car concept. Ahead of the unveiling, Yamaha released a teaser image of its first car.
From the teaser image the only information that could be understood is that the concept car will have a sports coupe like design.
The concept car will be a two-door vehicle with low slung stance. Yamaha is tight-lipped over the rest of the information. The official website says this "design concept is inspired by motorcycles and expresses the unique style of Yamaha".
The "inspired by motorcycles" description indicates the possibility of a concept car with one of the high output engines from Yamaha's motorcycle line-up. It will happen with the close cooperation of its partner Toyota.
Apart from the concept car, Yamaha will conduct a global premiere of Resonator125, which is a reference and experimental motorcycle. The motorcycle is powered by a 125cc single-cylinder fuel injected motor and comes with a lightweight, slim and compact chassis and an instrument panel. It also sports wood panels on the fuel tank and seat cowl with authentic wood grain materials.
Stated as experimental models, PES2 and PED2 are the stage-2 motorcycle concepts of PES1 and PED1 Yamaha introduced in the previous Tokyo Motor Show. The Street sport PES2 and Dirt Sport PED2 share a new power unit with a monocoque structure that also functions as the frame.
The third experimental model is YPJ-MTB concept. This electrically power-assisted mountain bike mounts an electric motor on a high performance bicycle. The model is fitted with 400Wh lithium-ion battery and a multi-function instrument panel. It also uses DC brushless motor that produces 250W.
