Yamaha is working on its first electric bike and has already revealed the first details. The new model has the potential to raise the standards of e-bikes higher than ever as it could be the first one that shows how stability and efficiency can be joined together in one motorcycle.

The new Yamaha EC-Miu Electric Concept uses two wheels in the back and one wheel on the front, so we can expect to perfect balance and stability. The company says that the concept was designed especially for women and puts safety and ergonomics on the first place.

The Yamaha EC-Miu Electric Concept can be recharged using the same G-Station charging stations used by any regular electric motorcycle. The Yamaha EC-Miu Electric Concept is also equipped with Wi-Fi capability which will help the riders use smartphone-based navigation and telematics services.

The Yamaha EC-Miu Electric Concept has made its official debut at the Tokyo Motor Show in November 2011.

The Yamaha YZF-R6 is now available with a special paint job (red white and black) developed to mark the company’s WGP 50 years anniversary. The color scheme is based on the famous ‘speedblock’ design that was made famous by Yamaha’s Grand Prix race bikes in the 60s, 70s and 80s.

The Yamaha YZF-R6 is built using a compact ‘mass-forward’ body scheme and a lightweight aluminum die-cast Deltabox frame which strengthens the major sections around the centre of gravity offering a top notch handling.

The bike is propelled by a 599cc liquid-cooled, 4-stroke, DOHC, forward-inclined parallel 4-cylinder, 4-valve engine combined with a highly advanced electronic intake (YCC-I) and throttle (YCC-T).

To keep the bike’s performances to a superlative level Yamaha equipped it with a slipper clutch, perfected on its racing bikes. This feature allows the R6’s rider to achieve smoother downshifting for more effective corner entry.

The Yamaha YFZ450R SE is an agile ATV especially developed for racing. It features sharp handling, a tight suspension and a high-tech engine, all working together to reward its rider with the purest riding experience on four wheels.

Marcus Walz decided to modify the Yamaha T-Max scooter and we’ll have to admit that the result is quite impressive. Marcus Walz is known for its hardcore cruisers and custom bikes, being one of the best known names in the business.

Taking about its new creation, Marcus Walz said: “With the Hyper Modified TMAX I have tried to keep the bike very clear and recognizable as a TMAX, I didn’t want to create a spaceship out of it. I concentrated on keeping the stock lines and optimising every detail while reducing the bike’s weight. I have also modified the handlebar area of the bike to give it a radical naked bike image and mounted the mirrors on the end of the bars to give it the impression of a café racer when in town.”

The scooter continues to be powered by the same forward-inclined parallel 2-cylinder, liquid-cooled, 4-stroke, DOHC, 530 cc engine that cranks out 34.2 kW @ 6,750 rpm and 52.3 Nm of torque at 5,250 rpm.
