“We couldn’t be more excited for people to experience how our new drive unit and new frame design work as-one. We’ve created a never-felt-before level of rider control and balance with our Dual-Twin frame design in perfect alignment with the powerful and easy functionality of the new PW-X2 drive unit,” said Drew Engelmann, Yamaha’s Power Assist Bicycle group sales and marketing manager.
“Yamaha has designed this bike to deliver on its promise to bring a new level of unified power and performance to all types of e-MTB trails, and with these quality components, we’re rounding out the package to make these YDX-MORO models an absolutely phenomenal ride.”
The YDX-MORO is scheduled to begin arriving at Electric Cyclery in late August and September.
Other features not previously announced that are equipped on the all-new YDX-MORO models include:
New PW-X2 Control Switch: A sleek and newly designed PW-X2 control switch maintains the ergonomic and tactile feel benefit found on other Yamaha bicycles while adding a push assist feature button. Holding the up button for one second activates Automatic Mode, automatically measuring performance and adjusting assist levels accordingly.
Integrated Dropper Post: Push lever control adjusts saddle height from the handlebar. A quick push of the lever lowers the rider’s center of gravity for descents, corners and jumps.
Speed Sensor Rear Hub: Exclusive to Yamaha Power Assist Bicycles is a speed sensor engineered into the rear hub, which recognizes the slightest change in bicycle speed and adjusts motor input to deliver a smooth and natural power assist feel for the ultimate ride experience.
