The Japanese motorcycle maker has just come with a crazy three wheeler concept based on the power-unit from MT-09 and has named it MWT-9. The three-wheeler concept is said to deliver ‘exceptional cornering performance’ thanks to its leaning setup. At the front, both sides of MWT-9 is equipped with dual USD forks that enhances the cornering as well as leaning abilities of the three wheeler. Talking about the looks, it gave us an impression of highly advance machine that can surely be used in sci-fi movies by the evil forces. It is equipped with a lightweight 850cc 3-cylinder engine that is capable of delivering 115bhp of power and 87.5Nm of peak torque.

In an official press release, Yamaha stated, ‘this Leaning Multi-Wheel (LMW) concept model proposes a new type of category in the realm of sport riding. Under a development concept of a “Cornering Master,” the MWT-9 mounts a 3-cylinder 850 cm3 engine on a seamless and dynamically styled body. The exceptional cornering performance provided by the twin front wheels and the bank angle maximized by the outward positioned front suspension forks enable a high level of performance that lets the rider go freely through twisty roads with ever-changing road surfaces and dotted with tight curves in succession.”
