While attending the (e)revolution electric bike show in Denver Colorado, I got to connect with Yamaha to learn more about their YDX Moro 07 Special Edition ebike. Aside from the brushed aluminum finish and metal badging, it features the same equipment as the standard YDX Moro 7. It costs just $100 more than the stock bike. This is an all mountain enduro electric mountain bike with 150mm rear and 160mm front air suspension from RockShox. The frame features Dual Twin technology; individual tubes that open at the top for an ideal shock mount position and span around the battery pack vs. fully surrounding it, which helps reduce weight. The wheels are 650b size with 27.5″ x 2.6″ plus size Maxxis tires. It comes with Magura MT30 hydraulic disc brakes with large 203mm rotors and quad piston calipers. A very nice Shimano Deore XT derailleur with 12-speed 10/51 tooth cassette. It uses the powerful and reliable Yamaha PW-X3 mid-drive motor, offering 85nm of torque, and the standard 500 watt hour battery pack that runs at 36 volts. It costs $6,499 USD, has one of the lower standover height measurments for eMTBs right now, the battery pack is cross compatible with some of the other YDX Moro models (from this generation), it’s available in a Special Edition build with brushed aluminum finish, and all Yamaha electric bikes also come with a three year frame, motor, and battery warranty. This bike was ridden by Alexandra Cardoza for her win at the WXC Bike Championship, GNCC, Sea Otter.
