New PWseries C2: Perfect for everyday city riding

New Pwseries C2: Perfect For Everyday City RidingYamaha Motor Company was founded in 1955, and during the past seven decades, the brand has become synonymous with the development of innovative new technologies and bold new concepts in the world of two-wheels. 

A pioneering spirit combined with the constant desire to explore new ideas has made Yamaha one of the most famous names in the world of motorcycles and scooters. This inquisitive nature led the company into a whole new field in the early 1990s when it put major resources into developing the Power Assist System (PAS) for bicycles. Featuring an electric motor providing assistance to the pedaling input of the rider, the Yamaha PAS was fitted to a specially designed bicycle in 1993, making it the world’s first production eBike.

Over the last 30 years, Yamaha has developed a successful line up of compact and lightweight high-torque drive units that are renowned for their smooth and instant power delivery. Using cutting-edge electronic control technologies, Yamaha drive units deliver a natural feeling that provides a unique and enjoyable riding experience. Fitted by many leading eBike brands, Yamaha drive units have established a worldwide reputation for their premium quality, outstanding reliability and efficient global backup.
