This week Yamaha pulled the wraps off its electric sport motorcycle concept at the Tokyo Motor Show and shortly afterwards released a video to show the Yamaha PES1 concept in action.
The PES1 maybe a concept but unlike so many that are built just to put on a show stand, it looks like this one actually works.
According to Yamaha, the PES1 is powered by a brushless DC Power module e-mill motor, which is mounted in the bike’s modular frame and it has a gearbox with an automatic as well as manual mode and smartphone integration. Overall the PES1 is said to weigh less than 220 lbs.
No word on if the PES1 will go into production but we like the way Yamaha is thinking.
