Yamaha Motor had introduced last year (2014) this very cool and classy scooter with three wheels called Tricity.  I had been longing to buy this scooter since I saw it in You Tube.  Philippine price for this Yamaha Tricity Scooter is around 146,000 pesos which is very affordable and economical.  I'm planning to buy this scooter next year during my vacation.  As a 125cc machine, the Tricity can be enjoyed even by inexperienced riders.  It was created by Mr.  Kazuhisa Takano, an engineer in Yamaha MotoGP racing division.
