WINNER!!!🤭😀🤗 That’s brilliant I want one, no coolant issues, little by way of oil to use, no exhaust to keep changing for the next shiny offering must have item.....hundreds out of work as exhaust system consumption declines rapidly. Down side....no where to dry gloves or warm hands up. Small point...wonder how long a charge lasts for and if there will be charging generators at events placed strategically around any longish course. Still this is the way forward, those old four and two stroke bikes are going to go up even more now in the grand scheme of things. Hey with more leccy bikes about you could have a trial going on just a few doors down and not be aware....just need to work on the whining noise from the engine...not the rider worrying about running out of power.....Duracel oh Duracel. One of my relations works for Mugen Honda, specifically with the E bike and what’s now being developed by most manufacturers will compare with this current (sorry) offering from Yamaha. I’m biased and personally think the Yamaha is excellent!👍🙂

Electric bike, fit FS1E pedal set and drive adaption, no reg, no tax, just like a big elec bicycle as advertised. What news on Osset I thought they were the ones that would be more noticeably out there!🤔

Yamaha have an exceptional record of producing great bikes to make the average rider better and making that same bike for years.

Honda make good bikes but not always so easy to ride

Call me a Luddite, but i think it sounds horrific, and looks awful.
But then i don't even like water cooled engines, nor FI.....

Is it single speed ?

Yes, direct transmission ,mechanical clutch operated hydraulically, weight less than 70kg its an R&D excersise and not built specifically to be put into production and will be ridden by Kenichi Kuroyama [in the the 2 event E wtc] the 1990's and early 2000's  WTC contender who was tipped to be the Bou of his era but broke both his wrists at a Sheffield indoor trial and never really lived upto the expectation

Yamaha sure did a good job of keeping quiet about this machine. The kickstand, swing arm and rear disc guard all look Very Sherco / Electric motion, to me...some sort of partnership there? like the blue Scorpa's as Yamahas in Japan?

I think Yamaha still has a bit of a relationship with Scorpa, even with its new owner Sherco. The very one off TYS250F for the Japanese National Series, has had some Scorpa bits still sprinkled in it.

Interested to see how this model will work out once it is available to the mob. I guess years of purchasing engines, etc, from Yamaha,   Marc Tessier who owns Sherco and Scorpa must have a pretty good relationship so a little collaboration is no surprise.
