Moments when products seem to effortlessly transcend the limits of a machine, like when the finest instrument in the hands of a virtuoso begins to create magnificent music.
Machines that resonate and strike a vibrant chord in the hearts of each and every individual. Each radiates a uniqueness that rises together in harmony like an orchestra ― this is the moment when new Kando is born.

Street Sports & Dirt Sports concept models for two-wheel electric vehicles
In addition to the characteristics unique to an electric motor, these two EV (electric vehicle) motorcycle concept models have an operational feel that will seem natural even to today's motorcycle enthusiasts and they achieve a new kind of riding experience that will inspire the Passion in riders. The Street sport "PES2" and Dirt sport "PED2" share a new power unit (Yamaha Smart Power Module) with a monocoque structure that also functions as the frame.
The "PES2" is an attempt to achieve a level of performance never before experienced in EV sports models, embracing the idea that future road sports bikes will offer the thrill of cutting through the air with the only the sound of the wind rushing by.
The "PED2" is an electric mountain trail bike developed around the theme of being at one with nature. Now you can take a trip into the forest without disrupting the serenity of the sounds of birds and the wind rustling the branches overhead, slipping through the woods accompanied only by the light hum from the motor of the PED2.
These two musical instruments are SILENT Cello™ and SILENT Violin™ that inherit the EV (electric vehicle) motorcycle concept model. In response to the clean and silent EV, these instruments have been given new forms.
Some parts have been retained for function and tradition. Others adapted with new technology. The clean and high-tech image of CMF (Colour Material Finish) has been applied to the pure contours of each instrument, balancing and refining the elements and bringing their essence to the surface.
These musical instruments apply the latest technology of a generation to continue their evolution.
