After being introduced as an electric scooter concept at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show, the Yamaha E01 has reportedly started testing. In fact, a photo showing an electric scooter covered in camouflage has been circulating in cyberspace.
Reported by response.jp, this electric motorbike from the manufacturer bearing the tuning fork still maintains the maxi scooter style that is currently popular in the global market. When viewed from the details, this zero emission motorcycle comes with features that really meet the needs of everyday use.
The LCD screen display comes with speed information, battery capacity, including ABS system indicators, turn signal lights, and a 5G or wifi signal meter which seems useful for advanced features that will be embedded in this electric motor.
There is no complete specification information yet, but it looks like this bike will be equipped with a smaller battery, with a distance of about 80 km on a single charge.
As for charging the battery, it must be done with normal electric power at home, with a charging time of 6 to 7 hours to 100 percent.
Previously, Chief Executive Officer & Representative Director of Yamaha Co LTD Yoshihiro Hidaka said, the Yamaha electric motorcycle has a performance comparable to a 125 cc class automatic motorcycle.
The range with a fully charged battery is still being maximized so that its use can be in accordance with consumer needs.
“In the instrument panel it shows that the remaining cruising range is 70 km when it is almost fully charged. This is not an accurate number because it changes depending on driving patterns and environmental conditions such as temperature. But it is possible to be 2 times more than the Yamaha E-Vino,” explained Hidaka.
