Integrated Report 2021(For the year ended December 31, 2020)

Resolving Societal Issues through ARTEnvironment and ResourcesThe Yamaha Motor Group strives to contribute toward resolving important societal issues through efforts in the three focus areas of Advancing Robotics, Rethinking Solution, and Transforming Mobility in the growth strategy laid out in its Long-Term Vision. Capitalizing on its technologies, knowledge, and expertise to date, the Company is actively engaged in various initiatives to that end together with its partners and via collaborations among industry, academia, and government.The TRITOWN is a standing electric micromobility model with twin front wheels employing our Leaning Multi-Wheel (LMW) design. To date, field tests of the TRITOWN have been run on park paths and public roads in various locations, including a field test on public roads in Yokosuka, Japan, in fiscal 2020. Based on user feedback from these tests, we are assessing the feasibility for the TRITOWN to be widely used on public roads, its viability as an inter-modal first/last-mile mobility solution, and its potential in tourism as a new form of mobility.ARTStanding Electric Micromobility ProposalHARMO is a new boat control system that integrates an electric propulsion unit, boat steering system, and more. Testing of the system began with use on the Otaru Canal Cruise route in Otaru in Japan’s northern Hokkaido Prefecture. In the future, we aim to offer boats with “smart packages” that allow passengers to enjoy the higher levels of comfort made possible by the silent propulsion only electric systems offer.ARTField Testing an Electric Boat Control SystemThe newly launched YPJ-MT Pro is an electrically power-assisted mountain bike (e-MTB) designed for off-road riding and was created utilizing the knowledge and expertise Yamaha Motor has garnered in developing motorcycles and other mobility products. Positioned as the flagship model for the YPJ Series, the YPJ-MT Pro will be used to grow sales in Japan’s e-Bike market.ARTLaunch of High-End e-MTBThe Company has begun accepting orders for developing proto-type electric motors (35 kW class) featuring industry-leading output density for use in automobiles and other mobility applica-tions. These units generate high output despite their compact size thanks to the use of high-efficiency segment conductors and the casting and machining technologies Yamaha has honed through its engine development.ARTDevelopment of Electric Motor Units for Mobility Applications22Toward Sustainable GrowthYamaha Motor Co., Ltd.
