Riese & Müller Next Level E-Bike: Concept Safety

Riese & Müller electric bikes

Driving forward innovations and jointly venturing down new paths: this is what has set Riese & Müller apart since it was established 25 years ago. Joined by the vehicle painting students at HWK Rhine-Main vocational college, we therefore asked the following question in a concept study*: how can the exceptional design of the Supercharger also be highlighted in the dark and the E-Bike made even safer? The frame was first coated with an electroluminescent coating to create a fluorescent light effect. A special electronic gear was then used to generate a high AC voltage, lighting up the frame. The result: the paint perfectly emphasises the strikingly sporty design of the Supercharger in the dark, at the same time as increasing its visibility on the road. This is what the future might look like.

* The result of the concept study is not ready for series production and cannot be purchased.

Yamaha Power Assist Electric Bicycles Coming to the USA Market

Yamaha Power Assist Electric Bicycles Coming to the USA Market

CYPRESS, Calif., March 27, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Yamaha Motor Corp., USA, is announcing full specifications and pricing for its complete line of power assist electric bicycles at www.YamahaBicycles.com and on Yamaha’s e-Bike social media channels including www.Facebook.com/YamahaBicycles.

Yamaha’s Power Assist e-Bikes are designed for active outdoor enthusiasts seeking alternative commuting options, a fun and casual weekend cycling adventure, or a thrilling off-road experience. The fun, reliable, and performance-driven commuting, fitness, and mountain bikes are designed to provide the most natural and smooth power assist experience available on an e-Bike today.

Yamaha is bringing four all-new power assist electric bicycle models to the U.S. this summer, including the CrossConnect, a completely accessorized commuter/utility bike, the CrossCore, a high style efficient fitness bike, the UrbanRush, a drop-bar do everything road bike, and YDX-TORC, a performance hardtail e-mountain bike.

CrossConnect: Everyday recreation-utility for those that want to take their gear with them 


Designed for all-day comfort with power, durability and performance, the Yamaha CrossConnect is an exciting and fully accessorized urban commuter with integrated components like front and rear fenders, rear rack, and headlight that maximize versatility and functional reliability. An air sleeve suspension fork with adjustable compression is unique to Yamaha’s e-commuter, with a through-axle that increases the overall stiffness and strength of the front hub, and it can be fully locked out for even greater efficiency on pavement. The Yamaha CrossConnect will be available at select e-Bike dealers this summer starting at $2,999 MSRP.

CrossCore: Fitness hybrid design for efficiency and ergonomic comfort


With a comfortable and ergonomic design, Yamaha’s CrossCore delivers a hybrid bike for the fitness-focused rider. The CrossCore features optimized geometry, class-leading power and performance features and classic Yamaha durability and reliability. The CrossCore is also equipped with mounts for a water bottle cage, fenders, and rear rack, while also pre-wired for a rear rack light as standard essentials to keep the rider’s focus on the workout. The Yamaha CrossCore will be available at select e-Bike dealers this summer starting at $2,399 MSRP.

UrbanRush: Balance of power, stiffness and speed in a sleek road bike chassis


The All-New Yamaha UrbanRush maximizes performance and commuting riding, delivering the ultimate in road-bike power, style and performance. The drop handle bar styling results in a confidence-inspiring rider position for optimal control and efficiency. Stylish convenience features include recessed fender mounts, front headlight and pre-wiring for Yamaha’s rear rack with integrated tail light. The Yamaha UrbanRush will be available at select e-Bike dealers this summer starting at $3,299 MSRP.

YDX-TORC: Agile hardtail e-mountain bike with powerful and responsive performance


Yamaha’s all-new 2.75 hardtail power assist mountain bike, the YDX-TORC, is powered by the award-winning Yamaha PW-X center drive motor system offering more power for more adventure and exploration on the trails. The YDX-TORC is built with a new progressive geometry — unlike any other hardtail trail e-Bike — that allows for a more playful and stable balance for more trails of all grades. And the motor’s low center-of-gravity supports optimized handling and cornering on tight switchbacks, and quick acceleration out of the saddle. The Yamaha YDX-TORC will be available at select e-Bike dealers this summer starting at $3,499 MSRP.

Yamaha Power Assist Bicycle Geometry; Rider Fit
Yamaha is the only manufacturer with 25-years of experience designing complete e-Bikes from frame to motor. That bicycle design heritage reveals itself with the most comprehensive approach to matching the behavior of the motor in alignment with fine tuning the rider’s body position on the bicycle to allow for a natural and confidence inspiring feel and handling characteristic. Yamaha’s bicycle frame dimensions and component designs are created to increase rider comfort, enhance rider control, and to maximize the efficiencies of both rider and motor for each of the intended riding experiences, which include: Performance Road, Recreational Utility and Mountain.

The all-new models have three sizing options which will allow for most riders to easily find a bicycle that fits their body size and riding style. Yamaha’s unique differences to the bicycle design ultimately translates into the category’s most consistent fit, performance and comfort regardless of the rider’s size.

“Yamaha’s core design philosophy drives our designers to create products that blend and balance person and machine, and we have created a unique ride characteristic on all of our power assist bicycles,” said Drew Engelmann, Yamaha’s Power Assist bicycle group sales and marketing manager. “Yamaha’s Power Assist bicycles strike the best balance of modern e-Bike styling with maximum comfort and superior handling. It’s our history of making e-Bikes for 25 years that has given our design team firsthand knowledge and experience that no other brand possesses in this market, and we are excited to be bringing a ride experience that is unlike any other to the U.S. riding community. It is going to be a lot of fun.”

Yamaha’s PWSeries SE and PW-X Motors and Triple Sensor System
Yamaha’s UrbanRush, CrossCore and CrossConnect e-Bikes are powered by the PWSeries SE motor, which has four levels of support: ECO+, ECO, STANDARD, and HIGH providing 70Nm of max torque and cadence support up to 110 rpm.

The award-winning PW-X motor on the YDX-TORC e-mountain bike features five power levels: ECO+, ECO, STANDARD, HIGH and EXPW. The first four modes deliver 70Nm of max torque with a cadence support of up to 110 rpm, while EXPW increases max torque to an impressive 80Nm and rpms up to 120. The PW-X also features a 13% percent smaller, lighter motor case, and faster ratchet ring engagement for faster motor response and increased performance when riding under more challenging conditions.

All of Yamaha’s power assist motors provide the purest, most natural assist feel thanks to Yamaha’s Triple Sensor System that has been exclusively optimized for Yamaha’s U.S. power assist bikes. Through the Triple Sensor System, thousands of times per second, frictionless sensors measure the rider’s pedal-torque, bicycle speed, and crank arm cadence with tremendous precision. Communicating back to the motor, the system helps determine how much assist is provided based on the changing terrain and situations (such as hills, speed, etc.) common to cycling. The design is unique to Yamaha and results in a drive unit that provides the smoothest, most refined and natural rides available in an e-Bike.

Every model in the Yamaha Power Assist Bicycles lineup is powered by a 500 Watt-hour Lithium-ion battery pack with a 36V output that recharges in just four hours. The bikes employ a center mount system in which the power unit and battery are secured close to the pedals to create a low center-of-gravity for better weight balance and excellent riding stability, while the unique side-exiting battery design allows for a lower stand-over height for greater rider confidence.

Yamaha Multifunction Display
All of Yamaha’s Power Assist bicycles feature an easy to use and easy to read multi-function LCD display unit. The compact unit is mounted to the Yamaha alloy handlebars, providing an ergonomic interface while riding, and the LCD assist-mode and LED power-level indicators make for a great quick reference to power assist settings. Simple, ergonomically designed push-button controls toggle through the various settings like rolling speed, max speed, trip meter, odometer, range, battery capacity, and cadence.

Yamaha History in e-Bikes
Yamaha Motor Company, Ltd. (YMC) launched the world’s first electrically power assisted bicycle in 1993 and has since produced more than 4 million drive units and sold more than 2 million Yamaha power assist bicycles. YMC supplies class-leading e-Bike Systems to select OEM partners worldwide.

“Yamaha is a world leader in eBike design and innovation, and we’re excited to bring these four all-new models – with more than two decades of experience and expertise built into them – to the U.S. this summer,” said Rob Trester, who leads Yamaha’s New Business Development Division and e-Bike unit. “Electric assist bicycles open up the world of cycling to both current cyclists and an all-new audience for a variety of fun and practical purposes. Since we unveiled the Yamaha Power Assist e-Bikes to the U.S. last fall, we’ve seen incredible enthusiasm and interest from consumers, retailers, and the e-Bike community that is looking for a fun, reliable performance e-Bike package.”

All of Yamaha’s Power Assist bikes are class 1 e-Bikes.
