Drive: The PW series is "smooth and powerful". While providing the smooth electric-assist expected by many general e-Bike users, our systems are equipped with powerful support and a natural, "organic" assist feel in the high speed range as well. The "triple sensor system" is what enables this "organic assist feel" that has been part of Yamaha's development philosophy from the start. The three sensors refer to: 1. a torque sensor that detects pedaling power, 2. a speed sensor that detects the bicycle's speed, and 3. a crank sensor that detects the number of rotations through pedaling.
The assistance modes are available in "High", "Standard", "Eco", and "+Eco". Optimized assist control for each gear enables powerful and natural assist power with a long cruiser range.
Yamaha LCD Display
Display: The LCD multi-function Drive Controller is designed to be Clear and informative.
The newly adopted vertical display makes information such as remaining assist distance highly visible. Attachment is also ergonomically designed, with the display on the center of the handlebars and switches adjacent to the hands. The display can be controlled without taking your hands off the handlebars, resulting in a safer ride, and smoother control of the switch.

A new mode of assistance has been added to the existing three (Eco, Medium, and High). The new mode, called Eco, is more conservative and will extend the range up to 30 %! A great addition considering the amount of power that was already in the Eco mode.
