Yamaha has revealed another one of its scooter concept, hinting at what the future on two wheels might look like. The Yamaha 04GEN scooter designed concept model was exhibited at the Vietnam Motorcycle Show 2016 in April in Ho Chi Minh City, the first motorcycle show event held in Vietnam.
The Yamaha 04GEN design is based on the RUN-WAY concept, which according to Yamaha symbolizes an air of dignified elegance and grace in both mind and body.
Compared to most scooter bodywork structures (which hide the frame with exterior parts) the Yamaha 04GEN only covers the frame with semi-transparent exterior parts, Yamaha reckons that showcasing the beautifully-engineered interior structure brings lightness to its majestic body, creating a new design which synthesizes the interior and exterior to achieve a rare beauty. The concept scooter follows Yamaha's 'Refined Dynamism' design philosophy, established in 2013. Based on this philosophy, Yamaha Motor has unveiled three design concepts to date: in 2014 the 01GEN, a crossover motorcycle with two wheels at the front and the 02GEN, an alluring electrically power-assisted wheelchair were shown, and in 2015 the 03GEN was revealed, a new mobility concept with enhanced optional colors, materials, and finishing based on the Yamaha Tricity.
