Yamaha Tricity Scooter: The renowned Yamaha Tricity range of three-wheel scooters has been updated and released by the Japanese two-wheeler manufacturer Yamaha. This range includes Tricity 125 and Tricity 155. There aren’t many differences between the two scooters besides engine size. This three-wheeled scooter, which is adorned with attractive looks and a powerful engine, was first introduced in 2014 and has been on the market ever since. It has one wheel at the back and two wheels up front. So let’s find out what makes it unique.
With the center-set LED headlight, LED daytime running lights, and LCD centre console, both scooters have a largely similar design. It has a single seat with an integrated grab rail, which is very useful for the person in the back. After the new update, an effort was made to give the scooter’s design a sporty feel.
