Yamaha PES2 Electric Motorcycle Concept

Oct 22, 2015

Yamaha’s new two-wheel drive EV motorbike PES2 concept is an evolution of the PES1, and pushes the power to the max.

In fact, each wheel houses a brushless motor, with the front motor being inside the wheel hub, and the rear one being hidden inside the chassis, attached to a train that drives the wheel. It uses a removable battery pack, called a Smart Power Module, that will presumably allow you to charge the battery indoors. It’s also very easy on the eyes, with a silver, gray and white colorway that covers the sleek bike. Both wheels have blue accents, which adds just a dash of color to the otherwise colorless presentation. Yamaha promises to put this concept into production so that it will hit the market by 2016, and if the company keeps that promise, they’ll be the one of the first motorcycle manufactures to enter into the electric market – following in the footsteps of brands like Harley-Davidson.
