Things are rocking at the Tokyo Motor Show. Japanese motorcycle maker Yamaha has just unveiled two new electric motorcycle concepts: the street sport ‘PES2’ on-road model, and the dirt sport ‘PED2’ off-road model. Each carries a DC brushless motor and a lithium-ion battery weighing less than 130 kg, with the PES2 model also has an additional electric motor built into the front wheel hub, making it a two-wheel drive bike.
While details are still sketchy at the moment, we do know that the bikes will have front and rear cameras, and will work with a “smart helmet” that will assist riders with an in-helmet display system. There’s more news to come about the new Yamaha electric motorcycles for sure, so stay tuned.
