YAMAHA : YDX-MORO
The YDX-MORO is an all-mountain power assist bicycle. It utilizes Yamaha’s patent-pending Dual Twin™ frame, designed in perfect alignment with their powerful new PW-X2 drive unit, to offer riders a never-felt-before level of rider control and balance.
At center-stage is a Shimano SLX 11-speed drivetrain connected to Yamaha’s compact, center-mounted PW-X2 motor. The PW-X2 offers five levels of Power Assist, and for the first time, an AUTOMATIC and a push assist mode. The PW-X2 offers an increased max cadence support of 170rpm, and a max speed support of 20mph, to assist you through every situation with a smooth, natural feeling ride. The drive is integrated into Yamaha’s Dual Twin™ frame and RockShox Revelation RC Boost 160mm front fork. Additionally, all cables are routed through the frame for better protection from the elements, this includes the routing for the integrated dropper post. The battery is protected by the bottom cage of the Dual Twin™ frame, further protected by a subframe battery jacket. When fine-tuning the different sizes offered, the unique stack and reach dimensions were created to maintain the advantages of low center of gravity and an always-active suspension of the YDX-MORO through the lineup. Stopping is handled by a powerful, reliable Magura MT30 hydraulic disc brake system both front and rear.
The Quad Sensor System, with integrated speed sensor as part of the rear hub assembly, is another industry leading innovation found on the YDX-MORO. This system is constantly taking readings of pedaling power, the bike’s rolling speed, rpms of the pedals, and bike angle 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. With the Quad Sensor System, the YDX-MORO offers an Auto support mode, which cycles between ECO, STD, and HIGH modes. All this is handled behind the scenes, so you can pay attention to the trail 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 control switch that can be easily operated with riding gloves.
The YDX-MORO is one of the lightest bikes in its category, only 53.3lbs, and does not make any compromises in quality or features to get there.

PW-X2 Drive Unit
Now with an angle sensor for use in the All-New Auto support mode, new helical driven gears for less noise, and brand new programming to support an increase cadence support (now up to 170rpm) and the added push assist feature.
Speed Sensor Rear Hub
Exclusive to Yamaha Power Assist Bicycles is a speed sensor engineered into the rear hub. The speed sensor recognizes the slightest change in bicycle speed and helps adjust motor input to deliver a smooth and natural power assist feel for the ultimate ride experience.
Dual Twin™ Frame
Combining hydroforming and forging techniques, the patent pending Dual Twin™ frame design provides precise handling and surrounds both rear shock and battery resulting in security, protection and a low center of gravity full suspension frame.
The NEW MTB mode offers a direct feeling assist suited for pedaling through tight corners and riding technical lines while AUTO support mode automatically switches between ECO, STD, and HIGH to provide optimal assist according to ride conditions.
PW-X2 Control Switch
The sleek and newly designed PW-X2 control switch maintains the ergonomic and tactile feel found on other Yamaha bicycles while adding a push assist feature button.
160MM Fork Travel
Easily tuned for a custom, buttery smooth feel, the 160mm travel fork maintains a higher ride height for ultimate confidence when riding steep and rough terrain.
Protected in the lower cage of the dual twin frame is the 500Wh battery protected by a subframe battery jacket.
With internal rim width of 40mm, the Yamaha-designed 27.5+ alloy wheelset is built with Boost hub spacing for a more direct chainline in the rear wheel and wider hub flange for increase spoke strength to the rim.
Integrated Dropper Post
Push lever control allows you to adjust your saddle height from your handlebar. A quick push of the lever allows you to lower your center of gravity so you can descend, corner, and jump more easily.
