A new era in zero emission two-wheel personal mobility
As one of the leading brands in personal mobility on land, water and snow, Yamaha has forever changed the face of the motorcycle, scooter, marine and snowmobile worlds with some of the most revolutionary new designs and game-changing concepts.
Yamaha is committed to creating innovative new products that have the power to provide an exciting and inspirational 360-degree lifetime experience for thousands of customers all over the world. With an illustrious history going back almost 70 years, the brand has established a reputation for premium quality, remarkable performance and cutting edge design – and now Yamaha is fully prepared to move into an electric future with next generation designs that offer everyone a special new sense of freedom and joy.
Yamaha: eBike pioneer since 1993
It was nearly 30 years ago that Yamaha launched the world’s first production eBike. Initially aimed at commuters and shoppers, the original Yamaha PAS was a revolutionary new concept that will go down in history as the spark that ignited the whole eBike movement. The PA26 experience set Yamaha on the path to becoming a major producer of eBikes for the Japanese market during the past three decades, as well as a key manufacturer of eBike System which are powering many of today’s eBikes sold within the European market.
Embracing the age of the two-wheel Electric Vehicle
Announced in early 2022, Yamaha’s Switch ON strategy confirmed the company’s entry into the world of electric personal mobility and outlined its ambitions to become a leading brand in the two-wheel Electric Vehicle market. Designed to inspire a new generation of customers who are looking for zero emission personal transportation for sport, leisure and commuting, the forthcoming line up of Yamaha eBikes, scooters and pedelecs adds another dimension to personal mobility.
Zero emissions with carbon neutrality
Running parallel with the introduction of a full range of two-wheel EVs from eBikes through to scooters and pedelecs, Yamaha has also accelerated its drive to become a carbon zero manufacturer by 2035, underlining the fact that the brand is ready and able to rise to the challenge and fully embrace the new age of the Electric Vehicle that is reshaping urban mobility, and more.
MORO 07, WABASH RT and CROSSCORE RC: Three new Yamaha eBikes for 2023
One of the most exciting new chapters in Yamaha’s history is about to be written with the launch of three eagerly awaited new eBikes for 2022 covering the MTB, gravel and urban sectors.
The company’s experience in the production of eBikes and compact drive units is second to none, and the new Yamaha line up has been holistically developed with the PW Series drive units and is imbued with the company’s dynamic DNA.
Aimed at a wide variety of riders from existing Yamaha motorcycle and scooter owners who appreciate the strong brand values through to customers looking for a good price/performance ratio combined with trusted technology, the Moro 07, Wabash RT and CrossCore RC will be available exclusively through Yamaha’s network of Powered Two Wheel dealers.
2023 Yamaha Moro07 Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits
The new generation PW-X3 is Yamaha’s smallest, lightest and most powerful drive unit weighing just 2.75kg and features an ultra-compact design that gives a narrow Q-Factor that enables the rider to achieve their best performance. A key feature of the PW-X3 is its Zero Cadence technology that gives instant power delivery at the slightest pedal input, giving its rider a real advantage in the tightest situations.
Developing 85Nm, this class-leading drive unit gives an outstanding torque to weight ratio and provides high power at high cadence for strong performance on steep hills and in sandy or muddy terrain.
A significant characteristic of the Moro 07 is the way that the PW-X3 drive unit delivers a lightweight feel at speeds over 25km/h, and this has been achieved by the fitment of newly developed gears and freewheels that reduce mechanical loss, giving a natural and responsive feeling when pedalling at higher speeds.
Unique Dual Twin frame
This quality eMTB is designed to provide excellent all round handling that enables its rider to enjoy new challenges on the toughest terrain from technical single track to fast fire roads. A key feature is the unique Dual Twin frame that features dual top tubes and down tubes that are designed to give a finely tuned rigidity balance that delivers a confident chassis handling character together with plenty of surface feedback and accurate feel.
Moro 07’s Dual Twin chassis has been designed alongside the PW-X3 drive unit, making it the first holistically developed premium eMTB – and the drive unit’s compact dimensions and low weight have enabled Yamaha’s engineers to achieve idealised chassis dimensions, notably excellent ground clearance and a compact wheelbase for increased agility.
The PW-X3’s small physical size has also enabled the design of an innovative new 150 mm travel rear suspension system with RockShox Super Deluxe Select + mounted between the twin top tubes. RockShox LYRIK SELECT Charger forks offer 160mm travel for sure-footed front suspension action, and Maxxis 27.5 x 2.6-inch tyres give the traction and flex needed for effective riding together with a high degree of surface feel. Magura MT5 brakes deliver power with feel, and the gearset is a premium Shimano XT 1 x 12 for smooth shifting and effective drive.
Interface X with Smartphone connectivity
The stem-mounted Yamaha Interface X gives a tidy cockpit handlebar area and features ergonomic mode assist buttons as well as a colour-coded assist mode indicator and capacity indicator for the integrated Yamaha 500Wh battery. Bluetooth® Low Energy Technology enables smartphone connectivity via compatible apps, and Interface X is compatible with many cycle computer brands.
Colours and sizes
Moro 07 is offered in three sizes and is available in Icon Blue and Raven/Silver.
Reduce Your Screen Time
Whether you’re challenging your physical endurance in ECO mode or discovering the place where ultimate control and performance meet the trail in EXPW mode, the super minimalist communication display of the Interface X is there for what you need and nothing you don’t.
Luxury Feel with Engineered Purpose
This buttery smooth rear shock with 15 clicks of rebound adjustment, dual-level compression quick switch, and adjustable air pressure options result in a positively bespoke suspension experience.
Outstanding stopping performance with the absolute best possible modulation requires only one finger. Feel the ultimate braking power of one-piece construction in the 4-Piston front and rear calipers paired with radial design master cylinders.
Minimalist aesthetics require unquestionably exceptional design to meet functional performance requirements. The All-New Interface X meets those demands with intuitive movements to access power assist levels, walk assist, and automatic support modes in a bantam weight class.
Obsessed with Speed
Helping to deliver the most smooth and powerful assist available today, our PW-X3 Quad Sensor’s rear hub speed sensor is high technology hidden in plain sight.
Parallel tubes for unparalleled control
Your frame is the most powerful structure of your bicycle. Yamaha’s patented Dual Twin construct combines hydroforming and forging techniques to create a frame to protect components with uncompromised riding control.
Increased shifting precision with reduced derailleur travel and additional gears in the “sweet spot” for riders to find the best balance of power and cadence.
