Yamaha Bicycles announces their special edition YDX-Moro 07 e-bike, a limited edition version of their current flagship full-suspension electric mountain bike. It will be available in a unique new colorway at dealers on June 1, 2023.

The bike is built on three decades of experience making e-bikes. Yamaha manufactured and sold their first power-assist electric bicycle in 1993. It was only available in Japan. The company was way ahead of most of the rest of the world.

“Yamaha has been a pioneer in e-bikes for more than three decades, and this is an exciting time to be pushing the industry forward in the U.S.,” said Drew Engelmann, National Sales, and Marketing Manager at Yamaha Power Assist Bicycles. “In 2023, we affirm our dedication to continuing further advancing our technologies and offerings to bring riders in the U.S. e-bikes that make every day more fun and fulfilling.”

The Unique Design of the YDX-Moro 07

The YDX-Moro 07 uses their patented “Dual Twin” frame design, where the top tube is split and the rear shock is mounted in between, and the down tube is split and the battery is mounted between the two tubes.

It features Yamaha’s PW-X3, the third-generation mid-drive motor, that’s smaller and lighter than its predecessors, while still offering 85Nm of torque and 250W of power (nominal, with up to 500W peak), and power assist up to 20 mph (Class 1). Assist levels include ECO, Standard, High, MTB, Extra-Power, Automatic-Mode, and Walk Assist. Yamaha’s Automatic Support Mode utilizes the quad-sensor system to select the right amount of assist based on riding conditions, whether accelerating, braking, or climbing, allowing riders to leave ride mode changes to the system and focus on the trail.

The YDX-MORO 07 Special Edition also features Yamaha’s new Interface X control unit, making it easy for riders to take in information and manage settings while staying focused on the trail. Features include a simple assist control switch, a minimalist 3-color LED support-mode level light indicator, Bluetooth™ connectivity to Garmin Edge 530-830-1030 cycling GPS computers, LED brightness adjustability, and a battery capacity indicator.

The special edition bikes will come with 3D 30th anniversary badges and decals.

“Yamaha’s passion for performance is driven by our racing heritage, and the YDX-MORO 07 Special Edition is a true thoroughbred for the next generation of e-MTB riders,” said Rob Trester, Manager of Yamaha’s Smart Power Vehicle Division and the Yamaha Power Assist Bicycle group in the U.S. “Since the 1993 launch of our first electrically power-assisted bicycle 30 years ago, which was hailed as a first of its kind, Yamaha has been a world-leading innovator in e-bike technology with millions of riders globally.”
