Yamaha Releases Electric Bicycle, Only Available in Japan
The PAS Brace L is aimed at the male portion of the demographic, for commuting, exercise, or simple two-wheeled fun. The 8-speed gearbox enables fine control assist using the unique S.P.E.C.8 to ensure smooth and sporty performance from acceleration all the way to cruising speed.
The 2011 model includes the industry’s first LED multifunction monitor, which shows the remaining charge on the battery, the selected mode, and the remaining distance for assisted riding. The monitor can also track current speed and approximate calories burned, as well as average speed and cumulative distance. The bike will also tell you exactly how much it is helping you as you pedal down the road.
New for 2011 is the 8.1A long-life battery, with double the capacity of its predecessor, and the longest warranty period for any electric bicycle. It goes on sale on September 15th, for 149,800 yen (nearly $2,000 USD). There is also a ladies’ model available, which is slightly less expensive.
