Yamaha Leading the Way in EV Vehicles
Toyota is number one and a leader when it comes to hybrid cars and others, including Nissan, are catching up with their EV vehicles… But rest assured, companies that usually get more involved in the two wheel world, like Yamaha, also some nice things to show, like the “PAS er,” a two wheel drive electric bicycle.
The “PAS er” is a prototype model developed on the concept of a more advanced hybrid relationship between the rider and the motor. It adopts a two-wheel-drive mechanism that applies the electric motor “assist” is applied to both the front and rear wheels and an automatic electronic gear shift (transmission). Together they contribute to a smooth, enjoyable ride even over changing road surface conditions. The motor of the front wheel is also designed with a regenerative function that charges the battery during deceleration or downhill riding.
There is also a sensor to monitors the rider’s rate of heartbeat and adjust the assist level to help maintain an appropriate level of rider exertion. To accompany this function, there is a large LCD meter panel with a speedometer and multi-information display showing calorie consumption, etc. The model also adopts shaft drive and styling defined by a simple design.
And the interesting “EC-f/EC-fs” more like a compact commuter motorbike strictly made for everyone to enjoy at anytime.
The EC-f and EC-fs are electric commuter vehicles designed to make motorcycle riding easy and familiar for many people of all ages regardless of riding experience. They feature simplicity of operation that only an electric vehicle can provide, plus futuristic styling. Their ease of use, quietness and smoothness make riding a joy.
The EC-f features a color scheme accentuating its cleanness as a commuter vehicle, while the EC-fs coloring accentuates stylishness.
