    Ageing market. The seniors are the ones with disposable income, and this is a bit more stable for those becoming uncertain in their abilities.*

    with the stability of three wheels, I can see this going autonomous... and we're a loooong way from having that happen to two wheelers ( thankfully)!

    Also women that dont like heavy bikes and beginners can buy a first bike that can actually do some distance. Performance may not be all that important if they can attract a new customer base.*

    This thing is coming to the US in the second half of 2018. Yamaha is taking the gamble.

    It may become a popular city commuter for rainy places like around here. The wide front end will have a dry ride with double the front tire traction for our wet roads. In a performance perspective Im not so sure, may be good going down a twistie road in wet conditions? If there was a significant advantage compared to two wheels we would of seen these long ago. Still wanna try one out thou.

    Four forks, two wheels and two tires... that's a ton of weight up front... it'll need four forks, two wheels and two tires just to get all that mass around a corner!*
