On the road
The 3-cylinder engine is a Yamaha 900, the same of the T-racer, but, in our opinion, it seems more brilliant: perhaps the manufacturer worked on the transmission ratios, or on the control unit; the fact is that when you open the gas completely while exiting a curve, the bike immediately revs up without shimming, it also seems to sprint more when insisting with the same gear. The sense of security that the front transmits is incredible: as soon as you’re off, you feel the 2 wheels in front, but once you take on the first curve what you feel is its true motorbike soul. The brakes are very precise, the grip on curves amazing, practically it doesn’t miss a beat.
On sudden changes of direction, it’s a little more difficult to vary the riding position to prepare the next curve, but this is only noticeable because as the bend angle accentuates up to 45°, the increased feeling of grip and stability makes us forget that we are riding a tourism bike and not a super-sports.
The Leaning Multi Wheel system with two 15 "wheels in front and 298 mm brake discs allow powerful and controlled braking, which means that in some cases, the rear tends to lighten activating the ABS; so it is a good thing to adjust the mono (without using tools) to adapt it to the rider's weight, as we did for the test.
All this stability and safety was enhanced when we faced a dirt road, the bike practically traveledon a "rail" and, if we wanted to exaggerate, by excluding the traction control, we could easily proceed swinging right and left since the front doesn’t lose the set trajectory. Unfortunately, theseearly spring days didn't allow us to test its reaction on wet terrain, but we imagine a very similar one.
Basically, it’s a motorcycle for those who want safe tourism riding, in any road and climatic condition. However, we did find a few small defects!
The fairing that integrates the double LED headlights is very attractive and futuristic but only partially shelters from the wind, especially at high speeds and if the rider is taller than average. We are also advancing a hypothesis for the future: given the inclinations that can be reached when cornering, it would be interesting to equip this bike with adjustable lights, such as those in the latest generation cars, to reduce shadow areas when riding at night.
