Yamaha E-vino 2014 world’s Best Motorcycle
Why Yamaha has chosen Taiwan? It’s very simple. In this country annually sold 700,000 motorcycles and scooters, of which 10 000 – is 50 cc mopeds (insurers writes small electric scooters in the same category). Thus, from these 10,000 about 70% of electric scooters.
Does not live only Yamaha produce ‘Yamahas R1’ art. It also has to give out products for emerging markets as this peculiar Yamaha E-Vino 2014. An electric version of this modest scooter designed for girls is notable for a ‘chic’ design with integrated basket and seat two-seater, in addition to a benefit for the city.
The modest electric motor is associated with a portable 50V lithium-ion battery and six kilos in weight, which guarantees a maximum of 33 kilometers autonomy. Taking into account that the maximum speed with the Boost function is 44 km/h and the motorcycle dry weight is 66 kilos already you can glimpse the use that can be given to this model. Recharge time is 3 hours, so the limitations are obvious.
The part cycle also is more fair, with its 10 inch wheels and drum brakes in both axes. He is appreciated so that I cannot go faster. The positive point is the price, since despite being electric out 58.500 Taiwanese dollars, only 1,500 euros to change.
