At the Tokyo Auto Salon, held last weekend, this custom 3 wheel scooter was shown, based on a Yamaha Majesty. It’s called the “Hagane” and the original Japanese article notes the display suggested they would be producing this, possibly later this year. I can’t really figure out who actually did the work, was it a custom shop, was Yamaha involved in any way? No matter, the tilting three wheel concept seems to be spreading.
It doesn’t look bad, better than some I’ve seen, and it has all of the stability advantages of three wheels plus the improved turning capabilities of a motorcycle with the tilt. This is bound to catch on with more custom builders just as I suggested it would. I’m curious what we’ll see next.
