This next-generation personal mobility concept model uses LMW*1 technology and represents a proposal for a new relationship between users and their vehicles. It was developed with the aim of bringing to people new Kando from the exhilaration of leaning as one with the machine through corners—enabled by the LMW platform—with greater comfort and peace of mind. It is also equipped with attitude control technology and reverse drive, and the cocoon-like vehicle body is easy to handle and maneuver. With approaches like interactive communication between the user and the vehicle through sound*2 and light for all-new mobility experiences, the YAMAHA MW-VISION suggests how the fusion of robotics and mobility technologies can produce forms of mobility more in tune with human sensitivities.
*1 LMW is Yamaha’s designation for vehicles with three or more wheels that can lean like a motorcycle through turns.
*2 Employs Yamaha Corporation’s ViReal™ immersive audio technology.
