Yamaha Hints At New Concept Car, Reveals Motorcycle Concepts

Yamaha hints at new concept car, reveals motorcycle concepts

Yamaha is going to have a big display at this year's Tokyo Motor Show. The company announced that it will have 20 vehicles altogether, six of which will be revealed to the world for the first time, and another four will make their debut in Japan for the first time. The vehicles at the booth won't all be pure two-wheeled motorcycles either. At least one is a funky four-wheeled motorcycle/car cross-breed. Yamaha also says that it will have an "automobile design concept model." The company didn't give any further details on it. We certainly hope that it will be as cool as the Sports Ride, its three-cylinder, mid-engine, 1,650-pound sports car from the 2015 Tokyo show.

As it turns out, Yamaha hasn't yet revealed many of its debut models for this year's Tokyo show, but it did reveal some of its concepts. The two newest are the MOTOROiD motorcycle and the MWC-4 "leaning multi-wheel" or LMW for short.
