Yamaha working on new design


Yamaha is working on a rival to Honda’s DN-01 automatic motorcycle, according to the Spanish motorcycle website solomoto.es.

Drawings have been seen for a motorcycle that looks similar to the Honda but seems to use the motor from Yamaha’s super-scooter, the TMax. Three of Yamaha’s engineers have patented the design, the website says.

The drawings indicate a new kind of transmission that might be similar to Honda’s automatic hydraulic transmission, developed for the DN-01.


  1. Suzuki should follow suit with a consumer version of their old G-Strider concept bike. It’s much more attractive than the Honda or the suggested Suzuki drawings.
