Yamaha Power Assist Bicycle Logo


The Civante is a powerful and light e-bike that will help you run at the front of the pack. It offers superb handling characteristics on city streets, and on steep, arduous hills, it excels when challenged by the start/stop nature of riding in the city.  The Civante offers great comfort and ride quality, no matter the pace, while offering a higher max assist speed of 28mph. With Yamaha’s high speed charger, you can get back on the road quickly, going from 0-80% in about an hour.

At center-stage is a Shimano Tiagra drivetrain connected to Yamaha’s center-mounted PWSeries SE motor, which offers four levels of Power Assist and a max speed support of 28mph. That is mounted to an all-aluminum frame and fork, which includes internal routing for all cables, offering a clean outside and better protection from the elements. The frame is already fitted with all mounting/wiring points for Yamaha’s optional front/rear fenders and rear rack. Stopping is handled by a powerful, reliable Shimano Tiagra hydraulic disc brake system both front and rear.

The Triple Speed Sensor, integrated into the rear hub assembly, is another industry leading innovation found on the Civante. This sensor is constantly taking readings of pedaling power, the bike’s rolling speed, and rpms of the pedals to better anticipate in realtime the adjustments needed to Power Assist levels to ensure a seamless, natural feeling ride through the duration of your trip. All this is handled behind the scenes, so you can pay attention to the road ahead.

The tough, ergonomic interface of the Multi-Function Meter displays all the stats you need, such as speeds, battery life, and time, and has an integrated multi-color LED indicator to allow you to see what Power Assist level you are engaged in at a glance. The computer is controlled with a conveniently placed ergonomic switch that can be easily operated with riding gloves.

The Civante is one of the lightest bikes in its category, only 43lbs, and does not make any compromises in quality or features to get there. Lastly, it is equipped with a LED Headlight to help keep you safe on the road.
