Super Sexy Yamaha E-Bikes & E-Trikes

December 5th, 2011 by  


Yamaha has been unveiling a number of super sexy and efficient vehicles (yes, bikes are vehicles) recently. CNET highlighted a couple recently and Gas2 just highlighted one, all of which are cool enough to drool over, in my opinion, so I thought I’d share them here as well.

This first one, EC-Miu, is an “e-trike,” as you can see. And the one right below it is the electrically power-assisted Pas With bicycle. Both were co-designed by Yamaha and Toyota, and both include “an advanced smart grid energy-management system designed for homes, businesses, and power companies, which means your e-bike will be another appliance you can manage online.”

They will also be embedded with Wi-Fi, so that riders can use smartphone-based navigation and telematics services.

These bikes can recharge at G-Station recharging stations used by electric cars.

Perhaps even more super sexy than the above (I guess it all depends on who’s riding it), is the Yamaha Y125 concept bike, which gets a staggering 220 mpg. Here’s more on this beauty from Jo Borras over on Gas2.
