The Ather brownout

After the investment by Hero Motors in Ather Energy what is very obvious is that there is a certain communication link that seems to have been cut… that they have managed to choke Tarun & Swapnil… their voices have almost been shut out… the way business was done seems to have changed somewhat…

There have been changes both inside and outside. Looks like production might not start even by mid 2018… Continue reading

Yamaha PES2 and PED2 electric bikes

Yahama PES2

Yamaha has revealed a series of new concepts which will debut at the Tokyo Motor Show later this month.

After revealing two exciting electric bike concepts at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show – PES1 and PED1, Yamaha now unveils two more concepts – PES2 and PED2. As the name suggest, the two which are now revealed, are designed on the same lines as the one’s which were revealed two years ago. But, there are differences, mechanically as well as in design.

In 2014, Yamaha had confirmed that they will be launching the production variants of PES1 and PED1 concepts in 2016. It could be possible that the PES2 and PED2 are the next step in the development of the production ready electric bikes.

2015 Yamaha PED2 Concept

PES stands for Street Sport, whereas PED stands for Dirt Sport. Both these electric concept bikes are powered by a DC brushless motor with detachable lithium-ion battery pack.

Equivalent in performance to Class II (50–125cc) mopeds and motorcycles, the PES2 is more tuned for performing in the city. Weighing less than 130 kg, it is 1,920 mm long, 680 mm wide, and 1,060 mm tall. To offer better pickup, the PES2 also gets an additional electric motor which is built into the hub of the front wheel. This makes the PES2 a 2WD motorcycle.

On the other hand, the PED2 is built to perform on the mountain trails. It is designed designed to capitalize on the clean, quiet performance character of an EV to better enjoy riding through the natural world. PED2 is 2,045 mm long, 775 mm wide, and 1,205 mm tall. It has a vehicle weight of under 100 kg.

The Tokyo Motor Show 2015 will be held at the Tokyo Big Sight from October 29 (Thu.) to November 8 (Sunday).
