Blue Core EURO5 block

Tricity 125 is the latest generation of EURO5 engines, designed and built using Yamaha’s Blue Core technology to minimize emissions while delivering high-efficiency performance. With a forged piston, newly designed cylinder head, larger intake valve and higher compression ratio, Tricity benefits from Yamaha’s VVA (Variable Valve Actuation) technology, which provides good acceleration with lively performance and low fuel consumption. The scooter is also equipped with a 32-bit SGCU (Starter Generator Control Unit), which fully integrates the new engine’s electrical and electronic functions, including fuel supply, power generation and Start-Stop system, to deliver more environmentally friendly performance. to ensure. The SGCU also controls the engine’s new Smart Motor Generator system, which combines the previous model’s separate generator and starter motor functions into a more compact unit. The new Smart Motor Generator system uses the crankshaft directly, eliminating the gear noise from the previous system and causing the engine to start and restart extremely quietly.

Stop. Start?!

The new Start-Stop system for Tricity 125 makes this city scooter less intrusive and more comfortable to drive in city traffic. It is designed to switch off the engine when the Tricity 125 stops at a traffic light and restarts automatically when the accelerator is stepped on. To optimize efficiency, SGCU continuously monitors driving conditions and prevents excessive stops and starts in situations such as dense traffic where the engine can stop and restart in a matter of seconds.

Yamaha’s unique LMW Ackermann steering system on the new Tricity 125, with the same basic transmission design as used on the NIKEN Sport Tourer and Tricity 300 motorcycles, has been optimized for 2022 and has a revised layout where the tilt axis is slightly offset from the steering axis. Tricity 125’s front wheels and revised steering geometry design provide safer driving, especially on wet or uneven surfaces.

Revised chassis

Tricity 125 has a new frame design with a number of improvements, including a 60 mm longer wheelbase and revised engine mounts, intended for better overall balance and more fun to drive. Like its predecessor, the 2022 design benefits from increased torsional and longitudinal stiffness, as well as a carefully matched level of flexibility that contributes to the scooter’s natural feel. Together with the revised steering characteristics of the latest LMW Ackermann system, the newly developed chassis offers excellent driving quality with a high level of comfort, even on uneven surfaces such as cobblestones or sidewalks.

The rear suspension with dual shock absorbers has been refined and adapted to the revised chassis design. The overall length of the rear shock absorbers has been increased to provide a smooth, progressive suspension travel over 90 mm, providing excellent rider and passenger comfort. Spring adjustment and damping resistance have also been improved, resulting in stable operation of the rear suspension, even when carrying a passenger and driving on poor quality city roads.

The Yamaha Tricity 125 is also equipped with the Unified Brake System (UBS), which automatically distributes the braking force between the front and rear wheels when the rear brake is activated. On the 2022 Tricity 125, the braking force distribution between the front and rear brakes has been optimized to ensure a smooth and stable braking.
