Yamaha is a pioneer in the marketelectric bicycles. It was engineers from the Yamaha corporation, which specializes in the production of various motor vehicles, who, back in 1993, proposed installing an electric motor on bicycles.
Recently, the developers announced an imminent releaseto the market of the high-speed electric bike Civante belonging to the 3rd class, for which the maximum speed is limited to 45 km / h. These bicycles in some countries require special licensing and receive a registration number to be placed on the back of the bike.
The experience of designers and engineers allowed us to createa unique bike with high aerodynamic performance and attractive design. Most of the components are manufactured at Yamaha factories, which allows all control cables and cables to be inserted into the aluminum frame.
The Civante has a Yamaha electric motorPWSeries SE, delivering 70 Nm of torque. The cyclist will be able to adjust and set four levels of engine power. Autonomous driving is provided by a 500 Wh lithium-ion battery that supports fast charging up to 80% in 60 minutes.
The control system is sensory and measures threethe main indicators are torque, speed and rotational speed of the drive, which will optimize energy consumption. The indicators are monitored via a liquid crystal monitor that supports communication via Bluetooth. When operating in manual mode, ten speeds are available. The bike features hydraulic disc brakes, Shimano STI derailleurs and an LED light. Civante tires are puncture-proof. The bike will go on sale in July 2020 at a price of $ 3400.
