2013 marked the start of a new future for Yamaha, and Yamaha is well equipped
to take on 2014 with the news that there were many exciting new models in the
pipeline focused more clearly on our customers' needs and lifestyles.

The most significant development for Yamaha is the unveiling of a
groundbreaking 3-wheel concept in the "New Mobility Segment" that is ready to
challenge conventional thinking, and change the way in which many people
commute in towns and cities all over Europe.

Yamaha Tricity: Taking a new direction
The all-new Tricity is a Leaning Multi-Wheel (LMW) powered by an automatic
transmission 125cc 4-stroke engine. It is specifically designed to attract a
large proportion of scooter and non-scooter users, as well as former riders,
to the scooter market.

The Tricity will be the first of a number of affordable, agile, compact, light
and practical new models that will be introduced starting 2014, and it is
Yamaha's intention to make this the new 'standard city commuter'. We can
confirm that the concept model on display at the EICMA will be very close to
the final full production model, in both specification and performance.

What makes the Tricity exceptional is the fact that it is significantly
lighter and much more compact than existing 3-wheel models, and Yamaha
believes that its remarkable agility and easy handling characteristics will
appeal to a broad customer base.

MT SEGMENT: The Dark Side of Japan
Yamaha's rapidly growing MT "Masters of Torque" range is one of the most
exciting things to happen to motorcycling for a long time. Drawing on the
"Dark Side of Japan" as their inspiration, Yamaha's exciting and innovative
new MT models are ready to challenge preconceived notions.

Launched to the press in September 2013, the remarkable new 847cc 3-cylinder
MT-09 underlines Yamaha's total commitment to developing a new breed of
inspirational models that will bring fun and passion back to the two-wheeled
world. For 2014 the rejuvenated Yamaha "Dark Side of Japan"-themed MT range is
further strengthened by the new MT-07, a naked 689cc twin-cylinder model which
raises the bar in the mid-class segment in terms of riding excitement, quality
components and design. Key design elements include a mass forward look with an
upright riding position.

This new MT is designed to deliver high agility together with exciting torque,
as well as an enjoyable riding character, for a very affordable price.
