Yamaha Expand E-Bike Range with YDX-Moro 07

Yamaha have announced the second model to join their e-bike lineup this year the YDX-Moro 07. This latest e-bike from Yamaha will be priced from $8,999 and will be available from Yamaha dealerships from May 2023.

Yamaha pioneered and developed the Power Assist System in 1993, thereby creating the world’s first electrically power-assisted bicycle. Fast forward 30 years and Yamaha is still the only e-Bike manufacturer that offers its own motor and frame package. Having close control over both elements of the Moro range gives Yamaha a unique advantage.

Yamaha engineers used their vast experience with the YZ range of MX bikes when they developed the twin spar aluminium chassis. The result is a combination of high value and performance that will appeal to riders who want to get their adrenalin fix with minimal noise on trails close to home.

The YDX-Moro 07 is an aluminium full suspension enduro e-MTB that sports 27.5in wheels and comes in small, medium and large frame sizes. It features RockShox suspension, a slick shifting Shimano XT 12-speed drivetrain, cable-operated dropper seat post and four piston caliper Magura brakes for one finger stopping.

Yamaha’s latest PW-X3 is the company’s lightest, smallest and most powerful drive unit. Its compact dimensions give a narrow Q factor together with excellent ground clearance for superior off-road performance. Zero Cadence technology provides instant assistance – and Auto Support Mode provides extra power on hills and into headwinds.

Interface X is Yamaha’s minimalist and simple LED communication unit that is the perfect match for the YDX-Moro 07. Mounted centrally to the bike’s handlebar, it gives a clean and tidy cockpit area – and features clearly marked battery and assist indicators. Featuring Bluetooth® Low Energy Technology for easy smartphone connectivity and ANT+TM technology for cycle computer compatibility.

YDX-Moro 07 has been developed using advanced chassis technology inspired by Yamaha’s race-winning motorcycles. Featuring twin top tubes and twin down tubes, the unique Dual Twin frame gives an idealised balance of flex and rigidity for confident handling together with accurate surface feedback.

The 500Wh compact battery is fully integrated into the Dual Twin chassis to achieve optimum mass centralisation for agile handling, and providing 85Nm of power that is delivered in a wide variety of modes including ECO, Standard, High, the unique and natural feeling MTB mode, Extra-Power, Automatic and Walk Assist. The battery can be recharged to 80 per cent in an hour and 100 per cent in four hours.

YDX-Moro 07’s premium specification features RockShox Lyrik Select Charger fork giving 160mm of front wheel travel. Developed to handle everything from challenging single track through to fast downhills, this front end gives this new Yamaha e-MTB serious off- road capability for fun without limits.

The RockShox Super Deluxe Select+ rear shock provides 150mm of plush rear wheel movement for a smooth ride with excellent rear wheel traction. Mounted between the twin top tube, this premium shock contributes towards the YDX-Moro 07’s fun character and all terrain ability.

Equipped with a radially mounted master cylinder that provides accurate feel, the Magura MT5 brakes features a powerful one- piece four-piston caliper that gives strong one finger braking performance.
