Anyone want to guess when Yamaha will introduce a 400cc Tricity?
I have ridden with a guy who has one. He has MS and his weakened legs cannot hold a bike up. The Piaggio's front suspension can be locked at low speed, allowing a full stop without having to place a foot down. It automatically unlocks after reaching a few mph.Having never driven one of these or a Piaggio, what benefit does having three wheels on a leaning scooter confer? The only one that I can see is if you hit a patch of sketchy pavement under one of the front wheels, the other might take up the slack and keep you upright for a bit and prevent a spill. Besides that, am I missing something obvious here?
I think not having full independent control of the front and rear brakes would lead to many riders "dying hard".It looks to me like there are a lot of people living in the past. The only constant about life is change. Come on folks we are 15 years into the new millennium. Why do motor cycles still have 2 brake levers when ABS brakes have been the norm for almost 25 years. Why do people insist on a manual transmission with a clutch lever when on DCT bikes all you have to do is push a button. Old habits die hard.
