Insurance Costs: 3 of 10
What Is It?
The Yamaha Tricity 300 is an A2 friendly three-wheeled scooter and is powered by a Euro 4 compliant liquid cooled 292 cc single cylinder engine, producing 27.6 bhp at 7,250 rpm and maximum torque at 5,750 rpm. It also features on the X-MAX 300.
- Automatic CVT gearbox with belt final drive
- Dual 267 mm discs up front with single piston calipers

- Traction control

Like the Tricity 125 the front wheels use an Ackerman design which leans when cornering but unlike other three wheel scooters Yamaha has emphasised lightness and agility with the Tricity.
Each wheel connects to its own fork, with one leg handling suspension and the other support. In the UK the key figure is that the front wheels are 470 mm apart.
The benefits of an extra wheel up front include improved braking, traction in corners and the ability to handle potholes. It will even lock in the upright position at the lights, so there's no need to put your foot down, disengaging when the throttle is activated.
The unified braking system lets you apply balanced braking force front and rear using input from both levers or the rear; it basically helps to prevent the wheels locking up. Applying only the front brake activates just the front discs.
Underseat storage is enough for two full face helmets and includes LED lighting, plus there's a cubbyhole with a 12V socket to charge your phone.
The 9-spoke 14" front wheels take Bridgestone Battlax SC 120/70 tyres and the rear a 140/70.
Accessories are likely to include a smoked screen, tall screen, top box, heated grips and pillion backrest.
