Yamaha unveils full suspension electric bike 

Yamaha is very popular all over the world as a two-wheeler manufacturer. It has finally unveiled its new Yamaha YDX MORO electric mountain bike line. The Yamaha’s new models include the mid-drive e-bike motor and brand new frame design. The Yamaha’s first full suspension e-bikes such as YDX-Moro and Moro Pro features the world’s first bicycle with split top and down tubes. It also has an angle sensor to allow next-level automatic riding.

The Yamaha YDX MORO electric mountain bike line shows off Yamaha’s new patent-pending dual-twin frame design. The split frame allows Yamaha to run the rear shock almost parallel to the top frame tube and that in turns lets the YDX Moro work a very compact frame which makes the seat height adjustable for short riders.


Now looking into its technical terms, the motor is a 500-watt PW-X2 of Yamaha’s own design and features sensors for pedal-torque, rolling speed, cadence and pitch angle. The bike can be easily worked out when you are riding up or down a hill, and adjust its assistance level accordingly. It has a 500 Wh battery and protects it in a cage-like structure. The battery can be removed and can be quickly swapped.

Yamaha partnered with Rockshox for suspension, with different levels of specifications. The new electric mountain bikes feature Yamaha’s latest mid-drive motor. The PW-X2 mid-drive motor system uses a unique quad-sensor setup that can detect pedal speed, pedal-torque, bike speed, and incline angle to more precisely calculate the required pedal-assist output.


The PW-X2 also features an automatic mode. It can intelligently shit between the riding modes such as Eco, Standard, and High mode. The motor also has a new EXPW mode that adds assist up to a pedal cadence of 170 RPM. The other details of the bike are not revealed yet but the bike will be a Class 1 model with assist up to 20 mph (32 km/h).
