In preparation for the highly anticipated 2023 Japan Mobility Show, Yamaha, a renowned manufacturer, unveiled its impressive lineup of vehicles set to grace the event.

The exhibition is scheduled to take place at the Tokyo Big Sight venue from October 28 through November 5, 2023, with press preview days just prior. Yamaha’s latest creations promise to deliver an exciting array of innovative transportation options for enthusiasts and the general public.

One notable distinction in Yamaha’s presentation is the terminology used to categorize its vehicles. Instead of labeling them as “concept” vehicles, Yamaha has chosen to refer to each as a “reference vehicle.” This nomenclature shift signifies Yamaha’s commitment to the practicality and real-world potential of these innovations.

Additionally, Yamaha will showcase a range of vehicles, some categorized as “special exhibits,” and others as “special exhibits with cooperation from Yamaha Corporation,” emphasizing collaborative efforts within the Yamaha organization.

Among the star attractions at the 2023 Japan Mobility Show, Yamaha will unveil six World Premiere vehicles, four of which fall into the category of powered two- and three-wheelers.


The Motoroid2, an evolution of the original Motoroid concept introduced in 2017 at the Tokyo Motor Show, is one of the headlining exhibits. Yamaha describes the Motoroid2 as a personal mobility vehicle with the ability to recognize its owner, stand up from its kickstand, and move alongside its rider, offering a lifelike riding experience.

Yamaha has achieved this advanced functionality through its innovative “Active Mass Center Control System” (AMCES), which encompasses features like self-balancing and facial recognition. The company’s vision for the future seeks to establish an intimate connection between riders and their machines, promising a uniquely exhilarating experience.


The Tricera, Yamaha’s take on a three-wheeled vehicle, differs from its counterparts due to its electric powertrain and three-wheeled steering. This vehicle also includes a manual mode, allowing drivers to control the rear wheel’s steering, offering a more dynamic driving experience.


Yamaha’s ELove is a self-balancing electric scooter equipped with the “Advanced Motorcycle Stabilization Assist System” (AMSAS). This system eliminates the challenges of balancing at low speeds or when at a standstill. While Yamaha is not the first to explore this technology, its development aligns with the industry’s quest for a safer riding environment and the potential benefits for new, inexperienced, and disabled riders.


The Yamaha E-FV (or EFV), short for “Electric Fun Vehicle,” is a minibike featuring the same powertrain as Yamaha’s TY-E electric trials bike. What sets it apart is the integration of Yamaha Corporation’s Active Sound Control technology, which simulates engine sounds when starting or shutting off the bike, enhancing the riding experience.


Although not a world premiere, the TMW offroad three-wheeler is a captivating addition to Yamaha’s showcase, demonstrating Yamaha’s proprietary leaning multi-wheel technology. This design promises off-road capabilities while maintaining stability on various terrains, thanks to its independent movement of the front two wheels and a hybrid engine configuration.

Yamaha’s commitment to innovation, practicality, and safety shines through its 2023 Japan Mobility Show lineup, offering a glimpse into the future of personal mobility and transportation solutions. The show promises to be a must-visit event for enthusiasts, industry professionals, and the public alike, showcasing Yamaha’s dedication to shaping the future of mobility.

Bajaj Auto, an Indian multinational two-wheeler and three-wheeler manufacturing company, has announced that it will be taking over all sales and service operations for Triumph Motorcycles in India. 

  • Bajaj takes over Triumph Motorcycles distributorship in India. 
  • The showroom will only be dedicated to selling Triumph bikes. 

The move is part of the strategic partnership that was established by the two companies a few years ago. Bajaj and Triumph have also collaborated to co-develop new entry-level mid-capacity Triumph models that will be produced by Bajaj at its Chakan facility.

With this announcement, Triumph’s India operations will now be under Bajaj’s Probiking business. The business will be headed by Sumeet Narang, while Shoebh Farooq, who was previously the business head for Triumph India, has moved to Bajaj’s electric mobility arm, Chetak Technology Ltd.

As part of the partnership, the first new model is expected to launch in 2023, and it is anticipated to arrive in the next few months. Bajaj and Triumph have revealed that the new models will have various displacements ranging between 200 and 700cc.

To accommodate the new Triumph models, the company’s dealer network will be expanded from 15 cities to 120 cities within the next two years. The showrooms will be tiered, with some of them solely dedicated to higher-end bikes developed solely by Triumph and located in India’s biggest cities. 

It has been made clear that Bajaj and Triumph-branded motorcycles will not be sold under the same roof. The Triumph operation will remain independent of both Bajaj and KTM, and the showrooms will be exclusive to the brand. The press release also states that “these new showrooms will be created in line with Triumph’s global standards.”
