In 1993, Yamaha's many years of research and development finally paid off when the company introduced a new type of bicycle featuring the innovative "Power Assist System" (PAS). Consisting of a battery-powered electric motor and featuring a computerized controller connected to torque and speed sensors, the Yamaha PAS was the world's first production eBike. Aimed at the Japanese commuter and daily commuting market, the original Yamaha PA26 ushered in a new era of zero-emission vehicles that would give rise to the entire eBike movement.

Yamaha: pioneer of eBikes

Since 1993, Yamaha has played a pioneering role in the development of all aspects of eBikes, including drive units, electronic control technologies, batteries, interfaces and frame design. In addition to producing complete eBikes for the Japanese market, Yamaha has also been supplying eBike system kits to major European bicycle manufacturers since 2013.

In 2018 Yamaha launched its range of eBikes in the global market starting from the United States and entered some European markets in 2022 with three new models: the MORO 07 eMTB, the gravel Wabash RT and the city CrossCore RC. Thirty years after producing the world's first eBike, Yamaha has established itself as one of the most innovative brands in this rapidly expanding market, which is transforming the daily lives of commuters and adding an exciting new dimension for professional or amateur cyclists .

New and exclusive MORO 07 Factory Silver model for the 30th anniversary

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the world's first production eBike, Yamaha announces the launch of the special limited edition of the MORO 07 model in the exclusive Factory Silver color.

The innovative Dual Twin frame features a high-quality Factory Silver finish that reflects the style of Yamaha YZ motocross models, winners of the World Championships for half a century. Like motocross racers, MTB riders push the limits on rugged terrain. This special MORO 07 model is also aimed at customers who appreciate Yamaha's advanced chassis and drive unit technology.

The blue details of the new MORO 07 Factory Silver highlight the technology between the YZ motocross bikes and this top-of-the-range eMTB, while special graphics highlight the 30th anniversary of Yamaha's pioneering PAS system, ushering in an exciting new era for all cyclists.

Yamaha MORO 07: pedal without limits

Developed through 30 years of experience designing and manufacturing innovative eBikes, the MORO 07 is Yamaha's flagship eMTB. Inspired by Yamaha's Grand Prix-winning motocross bikes, the unique Dual Twin frame houses both the battery and shock, while the high-quality RockShox suspension ensures confident and precise handling on any terrain. With a perfect torque-to-weight ratio, the compact PW-X3 drive unit and lightweight aluminum frame ensure smooth, powerful performance on the most challenging mountain trails.

PW-X3 motor unit for instant power

With 85 Nm and a weight of just 2.75 kg, the new generation PW-X3 drive unit offers an excellent power-to-weight ratio and high power at high cadence for excellent performance on steep slopes and in sandy or muddy terrain .

Yamaha's zero-cadence technology offers instant power delivery at the slightest pedal push. The specially developed freewheel gives a feeling of lightness and naturalness when pedaling at over 25 km/h.

Exclusive Dual Twin frame

The unique Dual Twin frame features dual top tubes and two down tubes designed to deliver a finely tuned stiffness balance that delivers confident handling and more precise terrain feel.

This innovative chassis was developed together with the powerful and compact PW-X3 drive unit, allowing Yamaha engineers to achieve ideal chassis dimensions with excellent ground clearance and a compact wheelbase.

Superior quality amenities

The small size of Yamaha's PW-X3 drive unit also allowed them to design an innovative rear suspension system with 150mm of travel with the RockShox Super Deluxe Select+ shock mounted between the two upper tubes. The RockShox LYRIK SELECT Charger fork offers 160mm of travel for confident front suspension action, while the 27.5 x 2.6-inch Maxxis tires provide the traction and flex needed for an effective ride as well as a high grade of terrain sensitivity. The Magura MT5 brakes deliver power and give a modular feel, while the Shimano XT -1x12 gearbox allows for smooth shifts and efficient pedaling.

X interface with smartphone connectivity
