Here are two new, or rather updates of Yamaha’s electric bikes, in fact the series PAS exists since 1993.
The 2011 “PAS” range comes in two models, a male model focused on performance, the PAS Brace-L and a female model more focused on comfort and practicality, the PAS Vienta.
Available in four colors, the two bikes are fitted with a 240Watt electric motor and a 8 speed in-hub transmission. The female model receives additional accessories but a smaller battery allowing it to be 2kg lighter.
However, the “male” version proposes a disc brake as opposed to the woman one.
Both bikes offer three levels of support, the functions are operated and controlled by a small LCD screen that can display also the number of calories burned, miles, battery state...
Note that the battery has a longer life with a number of cycles that double to 900cycles against 450 before.
Both models will be launched from next September 15 on the local market.
Their prices are ¥149,800 and ¥134,800 or €1350 and € 1215 for the versions man and woman respectively.
Annual volumes on the local market are planned to reach 4500 units (for both models).
