Yamaha Sports Ride Concept

The theme of the Yamaha Motor booth for the 44th Tokyo Motor Show 2015 is "Resonate. The Yamaha Motor Product Orchestra." The booth will display a 20-model array of concept and production models, including six world premiere models and one Japan premiere model. At the Yamaha booth this time, visitors will see Yamaha's "growing world of personal mobility" unified by the unique Yamaha product development ideal of Jin-Ki Kanno in displays that include electrically power assisted bicycles, scooters, motorcycles, Leaning Multi-Wheelers (LMW), a Recreational Off-highway Vehicle (ROV), an automobile and an autonomous motorcycle-riding humanoid robot that brings together Yamaha's motorcycle and robotics technology. The creative booth design employs the image of a symphony hall in which Yamaha mobility products and musical instruments converge and resonate together like an orchestra. We hope you will enjoy this display of Yamaha's "growing world of personal mobility" and the way it fills the booth with the unique resonance of the Yamaha brand.


This design concept mode takes a uniquely Yamaha approach by putting the involved and active feeling of riding a motorcycle, or "Live and Ride," into a vehicle with quintessential sports car proportions that adults can enjoy in daily use. Like the MOTIV (displayed at the 43rd Tokyo Motor Show 2013), it employs the iStream* process and is designed to express a driver-machine relationship close in feeling to the world of motorcycle riding. We devoted much attention to the high-quality details and were inspired by the artistic style of Elementarism in designing this proposal for a sports car.
