Ahead of the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show at the end of October, Yamaha has disclosed two new motorcycle models will be making their international debut. However, no details were disclosed about which market segment this might be for but of note is the number of electric vehicles Yamaha will be putting on display.

Yamaha’s booth theme this year is “There Is Greater Joy Yet to Come — ART for Human Possibilities” with six motorcycles debuting in Japan and as said earlier, two yet to be shown internationally. Aside from motorcycles, electric powered two-wheelers are being put forward by Yamaha as well as a drone and an unmanned helicopter.

The E01 and E02 commuter scooters are electric and Yamaha says power output equivalent to 125 cc and 50 cc cc scooter engines, respectively. Still in concept stage, the E01 and E02 are designed to be light and easy to handle in an urban environment.

Building on the idea of mass centralisation aiding handling manners, the YPJ-YZ is an electric motocross machine with the down-tube bifurcated to accommodate the battery pack. This provides the YPJ-YZ with stable cornering performance and light handling even on rough terrain.

Based on the retro style Vino scooter, the E-Vino gives torque and smooth motor performance at low speeds. Coming with a removable battery, the E-Vino is designed for short-range commuting and has two running modes and a boost function that provides extra power for climbing hills.

On the other hand, the TY-E is an electric powered trails bike that features a carbon-fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) frame and was created in-house by Yamaha. A prototype of the TY-E was ridden by Kenichi Kuroyama in the FIM Trial-E Cup, where he finished second in 2018 and 2019.

Headed for production along with the Vino electric scooter is the YPJ-XC electrically power-assisted mountain bike (e-MTB). Powered by Yamaha’s PW-X electric motor, the YPJ-XC provides extra power for the rider to overcome obstacles or extend the ride further.

Designed for agricultural use is the YMR-08 drone and Fazer R unmanned helicopter. With a 32-litre payload tank, the Fazer R can spray up to four hectares with fertiliser or herbicides without replenishment or refuellng and uses GPS in conjunction with gyrosensors to calculate speed and distance to turns for uniform delivery of payload, increasing spray efficiency.

For mobility impaired users, Yamaha is having a special exhibit of the YNF-01 and JWX-1 Plus+, a low-speed mobility concept and conversion of manual wheelchair to electric, respectively. The JWX-1 Plus+ replaces the main wheels on a wheelchair to expand the user’s range while the YNF-01 comes with large tires and four-wheel independent suspension that allows the user to “go everywhere and do everything.”
