The three cylinder motorcycle world seems to be slowly gathering attention over the past few years with all top manufacturers looking for that sweet spot between performance and efficiency. The latest to join this 3 cylinder race is Yamaha, who have unveiled their all new 3 cylinder engine at the Intermot. According to the company this new engine has the potential to bring in the best of both worlds into a package that can do it all. The engine was unveiled by current Yamaha MotoGP rider Jorge Lorenzo.
Yamaha is heavily banking on this new engine for their future and for sure this engine will have a much better torque curve than their crossplane high revving engine on the R1 or torque monster engine on the M1. There is still no news on what they will use the engine on but a 750cc light supersport could be a possibility.
