Yamaha motorcycles have just made a collaboration with Player Unknown’s Battleground (PUBG) Mobile, one of the most popular battle royale mobile games that’s been out available on both iOS and Android mobile phones. PUBG, through its social media accounts, has just released a short video teaser that showed the several silhouettes of the motorbike to be featured in the game from Yamaha.
Later on, it revealed the logo of PUBG Mobile alongside Yamaha’s logo confirming the collaboration between the two. The video didn’t directly indicate which Yamaha motorcycle they will be using but judging from the silhouette, it is being suspected that the MWT-9 or Niken, Yamaha’s popular futuristic-looking leaning three-wheeler would be the motorcycle to be featured in the new game.
Yamaha’s MWT-9 was first revealed as a leaning trike concept back in 2015 and was later on displayed in the 45th Tokyo Motorcycle Show in 2017. It has the same powerplant used in the MT-09 which is powered by liquid-cooled 847 cc in-line three-cylinder engine that’s capable of producing 115 hp at 10,000 RPM and 87.5 Nm of torque at 8,500 RPM.
The same teaser video also appeared on the Facebook page of Yamaha Philippines.
