The Yamaha OR2T is an innovative four-wheeler motorbike concept that features advanced suspension technology that borrows from the Tesseract concept model bike from 2007.

This suspension arrangement is the highlight of this concept bike. Rather than sport suspension units on each wheel that are controlled by a single swing arm, this particular setup instead features a massive vertical arm for each wheel. These are connected to independent shock absorbers and linkage. Essentially, the centrally positioned shock is eschewed in favor of two shocks, one for each wheel. The bike also appears to sport an MT-09 triple setup with smaller wheel tracks than the older Tesseract model, although the central shock absorber system is the same.

Ultimately, the Yamaha OR2T is a prototype vehicle that is being used to test out innovative suspension models. But at the same time, it also hints towards the future of motorbike performance technology.
