It goes without saying that designing a motorcycle is a difficult and time-consuming task. Although there are “templates” such as different body styles that manufacturers can follow, it is almost impossible to create an ideal vehicle suitable for everyone. This is where the vast secondary market comes into play, where riders can choose higher seats, adjustable footrests, steering wheels at different heights, and so on.
What if there was a way to make your motorcycle fit you perfectly — a motorcycle that would fit you exactly the way you want? Of course, high-end manufacturers such as MV Agusta offer these expensive services, but motorcycles of this kind are often unavailable. Nevertheless, Yamaha may be on its way to changing all that with its innovation, the Motolator.
Combining the words “moto” and “simulator”, Motolator allows you to test all possible motorcycle configurations, making it much easier to determine the exact type that suits you best. This includes the height of the saddle, the location of the footrest, the width and height of the steering wheel, and even the size of the fuel tank.
“This opens up almost limitless possibilities when it comes to creating the perfect ergonomics for future models.”
