Yamaha has decades of experience in the competitive world of motor sports.
This wealth of experience is clear to see on Yamaha’s YDX Moro 07 full-suspension electric mountain bike.
Yamaha’s patented Dual Twin frame’s cage-like cradling of the rear shock and battery was created to provide the ultimate balance and total control over all types of trail.
Combining hydroforming and forging techniques, Yamaha’s patent-pending Dual Twin™ frame design provides precise handling and surrounds both rear shock and battery resulting in security, protection and a low center of gravity.
“A long time coming, the Yamaha YDX Moro electric mountain bikes are revolutionizing electric mountain bike design.”
Key features of the YDX Morro 07
The YDX-MORO 07 makes use of a Yamaha 500Wh battery that charges fully in four hours. It utilizes a Yamaha Dual-Twin frame and RockShox suspension front and rear.

Yamaha’s extensive research and development led to the first prototype modern electric bicycle way back in the 1980’s. Read more about the History of the Yamaha Electric Bike.
Since the early beginnings of electric bikes, Yamaha has been constantly innovating to deliver electric bike power assist systems that over-perform in real-world situations.
Yamaha is years ahead of the competition mostly because they had a 30-year head-start.
