Yamaha’s New App Lets You Design Your Own Bike!
Check Out Yamaha’s Virtual Motorcycle Customizer App
Updated August 14, 2018
Yamaha has launched a new bike customization app that lets you decide how you want your next bike to look and feel. Motorcycle customization has never been so easy… It’s called “My Garage” and with it you can search through a range of models, decide what important upgrades and add-ons you want, and send the info directly to your nearest dealership. The days of the humble catalog are numbered.
The latest iteration of “My Garage” is geared towards Yamaha’s Sports Touring range, but the company also has apps that cater for the Supersport models, Sports Heritage, MT (FZ) series, and a few select sports scooters. There’s a lot more to the app than simply selecting parts that you’d like, you can also compare and contrast different models, different add-ons, examine your dream bike from every angle and take photos of it too.
The bike customization app works a lot like the standard vehicle customization interface that you’ll find on any type of motor racing video game. You select the model, pick your favorite color combination, and add on your desired parts from the Yamaha catalog. The customization includes different luggage options, a wide range of exhaust systems, a selection of rims, wind screens, fenders and a wide range of other comfort options. The interface is simple, easy to understand, and virtually idiot proof.
As soon as you’re finished with your newly customized machine, the bike customization app lets you take photos of your creation from almost every possible angle, with full 3D graphics and a 360 degree view. Then, you can share it with your friends for some much needed feedback. The app also calculates the price of your upgrades too…which is pretty handy.
Once you’ve selected the parts and styling combination of your choosing, the app will also ask you if you want to send the details through to your local Yamaha dealership. From there, you can order the parts you want, for the model you want, and pick them up when the time comes. Simple as. It saves a lot of sales assistant hassle too…
This bike customization app app is available for both iOS and Android. It’s a must have accessory for all Yamaha fans out there.
