We recently talked about the Yamaha MWT-9 concept, which is a tricycle with leaning suspension based on the Yamaha FZ-09 model. The novelty was presented at the Tokyo Motor Show in 2015, and we discussed the concept of the car Yamaha Sports Ride. At the same time, the Japanese designers and engineers have created something in between these two concepts, presenting the 4-wheel tilting motorcycle Yamaha OR2T.

Yamaha OR2T – heir of the original concept Yamaha Tesseract, which was presented in 2007. In terms of design the new concept has obvious shortcomings, but some of the technical aspects of the Yamaha OR2T look very attractive. Leaning suspension ensures the dynamics of a motorcycle, but the four-wheel drive provides stability and balance, excluding such things as low side. In addition, it increases the contact area with the asphalt, dynamic braking, etc. – a lot of advantages.

Of course, fans of the traditional motorcycle called a concept “freak”, but the idea has a right to life.
