Yamaha Unveils Two New E-Bike Concepts Ahead of Japan Mobility Show 2023

        If for some reason you need a motorcycle, a piano, audio equipment, and an e-bike, but only if they’re all from the same manufacturer, you’ll likely want to consider Yamaha. The Japanese company has been at the forefront of innovation across many industries for decades, and now, with the Japan Mobility Show 2023 just days away, Yamaha looks set to put on a great show.
        In a press release, Yamaha unveiled not one, but two electric bikes ahead of the Japan Mobility Show. The company already has an impressive lineup of e-bikes, such as the high-performance YDX Moro 07 electric mountain bike, which is due out in early 2023. The brand is also impressed with the Booster, an electric moped with futuristic scooter styling. The e-bike concept aims to take bike-centric technology to a whole new level.
        The first model released by the brand is called Y-01W AWD. At first glance the bike looks like an unnecessarily complex tube assembly, but Yamaha says the concept is designed to bridge the gap between gravel and mountain bikes. It has two electric motors, one for each wheel, so yes, it’s an all-wheel drive electric bike. Complementing the two motors is not one, but two batteries, allowing you to travel longer distances while charging.
        Of course, Yamaha is keeping most of the technical details of the Y-01W AWD under wraps, or so we think, until the Japan Mobile Show. However, we can infer a lot from the images provided. For example, it has a sleek and aggressive frame with handrails and a suspension fork at the front. The concept model is expected to be classified as a high-speed e-bike for the European market, meaning its top speed will exceed 25 km/h (15 mph).
        The second concept bike released is called the Y-00Z MTB, an electric mountain bike with an unusual electronic power steering system. In terms of design, the Y-00Z MTB is not much different from a regular full suspension mountain bike, except of course the electric power steering motor located on the head tube. Mountain bikes are not known for oversteering, so it will definitely be interesting to learn more about this new technology.
