Very impressive, Yamaha reputation for reliability should make that an appealing bike for a lot of people.
"As well as an AC electric motor and lithium-ion battery pack, the TY-E features a conventional clutch. That’s unusual on an electric bike, but for trials it’s vital to give the control the rider needs.
To keep weight to a minimum, the TY-E features a carbon-fibre monocoque chassis. The batteries sit inside the frame itself. It’s incredibly strong and light, helping the whole machine weigh under 70kg."
