Yamaha PES2 Electric Driven Bike For Tokyo Motor Show

The Yamaha PES2 is an evolution of the PES1 and this time it does look slightly more ready for production than its predecessor. At the core of the machine is what Yamaha calls the Yamaha Smart Power Module, which is a removable battery pack that doubles as a structural element of the motorcycle frame, thus making the PES2 have a monocoque frame design.

More interestingly, Yamaha has added a hub motor to the front wheel of the PES2 design, thus making the Yamaha PES2 concept a two-wheel drive electric vehicle. As such, Yamaha says that the PES2 is “designed to pioneer new boundaries of performance never experienced before.”

The front suspension and steering linkage is also of note, with Yamaha employing a single-sided fork leg setup. It will be interesting to see this arrangement more closely, once the bike is on display at the Tokyo Motor Show.
