This vehicle is aimed at connecting the “active” and “urban” in the lifestyles of Yamaha enthusiasts.

Looking to expand upon the possibilities for personal mobility stemming from motorcycles, this Leaning Multi-Wheel (LMW) vehicle has two wheels front and rear and was developed under the concept of “Half-Sized Mobility.” The MWC-4 is powered by electric motors and a gasoline engine for range-extending power generation, and uses attitude-control technology, giving it a ride that feels like nothing else and a level of comfort not found with a conventional motorcycle. This is all expressed with styling inspired by the features of both motorcycles and musical instruments.
