As the demand for electric vehicles continues to grow, major automakers are offering their latest battery-powered vehicles. Now Yamaha has also joined this list with its new electric scooter. Yamaha has introduced the EMF electric scooter in the Taiwan market, whose sales will start in a few days. The new EMF electric scooter is Yamaha’s second electric scooter after the EC-05 which was introduced globally in 2019.
The new Yamaha EMF is also the second electric vehicle to be developed in collaboration with Taiwanese battery and tech giant Gogoro. India’s largest two wheeler manufacturer, Hero MotoCorp has also collaborated with Gogoro for its upcoming electric vehicles. The Yamaha EMF has been built on an entirely new design platform, which defines a new design language.
The scooter has been given a futuristic design with minimal front apron and vertically stacked twin pod headlight cluster. Key exterior features of the scooter include its afterburner-styled dual LED taillights, trendy rear view mirrors, digital instrument console, single piece seat and beefy tire profile. It has also been introduced in three color options including Dark Black, Dark Green and Light Blue.
Some of the key features of the scooter include some advanced connectivity features like last parking location, turn-by-turn navigation and fleet management system. In addition, it can be turned on / off using the NFC card. It also has a small storage space in the center of the floorboards.
The scooter is powered by a powerful electric motor that generates a maximum power of 10.30 bhp and a peak torque of 26 Nm. This scooter can accelerate from 0-50 kmph in just 3 seconds.
Yamaha EMF is a high speed electric scooter, so it can be easily driven on the highway as well. According to the information, this scooter is capable of running at a top speed of 80-100 kmph. The scooter has a disc brake of 200 mm at the front wheel and 190 mm at the rear.
