Technology Exhibit: Handling is in the Details -3-
Handling is in the Details -3-Third Series of 2016: Technology Exhibit
Exhibition Period: December 2016 to June 2017
At the Communication Plaza, we aim to be a place where you can always find fresh new forms of the special excitement and fulfillment we call Kando by creating displays with a variety of current themes and exhibiting the latest Yamaha products. Our “Art of Engineering” exhibit shows the technology and art of Yamaha Monozukuri and it’s one you won’t want to miss.
For this third edition, we went beyond the actual steering mechanisms and looked at the finer details of the technology and methodologies that influence a vehicle’s handling, some of which are surprising with the amount of time and effort dedicated to them. We introduced aspects of engines, vehicle testing during development, engine oil and PWC hull components along with the items related to them.
- Crossplane crankshaft delivering “purer” engine torque
- Testing during development to polish performance in tune with rider perceptions
- Genuine Yamaha oil developed at the same time as the engine as a “liquid engine component”
- The sponsons that fine-tune the cornering performance of a PWC hull
