Bringing rider and machine together as one: that is the long-standing and exclusive development ideal of Yamaha.
We are constantly enhancing our systems with the technology necessary to deliver to the user the seductive exhilaration of a flawless ride.
YAMAHA factory tuned
To achieve the "Being one with the machine" ideal, we have incorporated "Quad Sensor System" and "Automatic Support Mode" technologies to our complete drive unit line up. Our engineers take full advantage of those technologies to fine-tune each system optimally for each underlying riding concept.
The Quad Sensor System
Sensing technology that supports your riding experience
The Quad Sensor System adds an angle sensor to detect the bike's angle of climb or descent, in addition to the existing ride speed, crank rotation, and pedaling torque sensors. The system automatically detects riding conditions, and delivers the appropriate assist power and acceleration.
Automatic Support Mode
The expression of Yamaha's tuning know-how in each riding scenario
Each of the sensors monitors the riding conditions, and algorithms automatically select the appropriate level of pedal assistance. The result is a fine-tuned, user-friendly ride. The algorithms are created individually for each of the drive units on the line-up, creating the experience expected for each riding situation. If you wish to shift between assist modes manually, you can turn the Automatic Support Mode off.
Three drive units for different applications
Our engineers take advantage of those technologies to fine-tune each system optimally for each underlying riding concept.
