Full Suspension Mountain Bike
Yamaha has developed its first, full suspension electric mountain bike. There are two models, each with a unique, patent pending dual twin frame design. The dual twin frame has a split frame set up on the front and back tires. That allows the seat to rest lower when the biker is standing on the pedals to get through difficult terrain. According to Yamaha, the dual twin frame design delivers a "superior combination of handling performance and durability". This is Yamaha's first ever full suspension electric mountain bike setup with Horst link design.
Pricey and Powerful
The two models are the Desert Yellow YDX-MORO priced at $4,499. and the Blue/Nickel YDX-MORO Pro at $5,499. Both are powered by a 500 Wh battery/motor setup. Both have Yamaha's mid-drive motor, the Yamaha PW-X2. The motor is highly advanced. It uses a unique quad-sensor setup that precisely calculates the required petal assist output by measuring pedal speed and torque, bike speed and the incline angle. The pedal assist gives the rider an extra assist to get up steep inclines and over difficult ground.
The bikes come with:
- Front and rear rock suspension
- Drive train package with a Shimano SLX 11-speed package
- Brake package for optimal braking in extreme off-road conditions
- Tubeless compatible wheel-set and plus sized tires.
