Yamaha Power Asist Bicycles Have Arrived in Canada!

By Posted on

Yamaha Motor Canada is excited to announce that Yamaha’s Power Assist Bicycle lineup is now available in Canada. Yamaha Motor Corporation has been selling Power Assist Bicycles since 1993, virtually inventing the E-bike as we know it. Today, we’re proud to launch the first two models in Canada: the YDX-MORO 05 and YDX-MORO 07.

These new models bring impressive range efficiency, broad torque, advanced component technology, and the smoothest assist delivery ever felt on a power assist bicycle in a light and powerful complete package. Planted in performance with racing tradition, pedigree and reliability, the new YDX-MORO models were developed specifically for the next generation of e-MTB riders and feature Yamaha’s smallest, lightest and most powerful drive unit to date.

The PW-X3 boasts a max torque to 85Nm, while maintaining 250W nominal assist, 500W maximum assist, and power assist up to 32 km/h. Assist levels include ECO, Standard, High, MTB, Extra-Power, Automatic-Mode and Walk Assist. Yamaha’s Automatic Support Mode feature selects the right amount of assist based on riding conditions, whether accelerating, braking or climbing, allowing riders focus on the trail.

The new drive unit’s increased torque output helps e-MTB riders tackle steep gradients and sandy or muddy terrain. Zero cadence technology ensures instant torque delivery at the slightest pedal input, while the strong and seamless power flow of Yamaha’s proprietary Quad Sensor System reinforces the feeling that the bike is an extension of the rider’s body.

“Despite being new to Canada, Yamaha has 30 years of experience building power assist bicycles so these models will have the same level of quality, reliability and durability you expect from every Yamaha, “said Bryan Hudgin, Director of Marketing and Brand Development at Yamaha Motor Canada. “Yamaha’s racing pedigree is also engraved through our e-MTB lineup, with the MORO’s Dual Twin Frame inspired by our championship winning YZ lineup chassis.”

The new YDX-MORO 07 and YDX-MORO 05 also receive the new Yamaha Interface X control unit, making it easy for riders to obtain information and manage settings while staying focused on the trail. Features include a Simple Assist control switch, a minimalist 3-colour LED support-mode level light indicator, Bluetooth™ connectivity, LED brightness adjustability and battery capacity indicator.
