Drive: The Yamaha PW-X Center mount unit (bottom bracket motor) drive unit is more compact, lighter, stronger: the new Yamaha PW-X definitely has the edge on its predecessor across the board. It has a "triple sensor" system is what holds the product concept of "smooth and powerful" in place. The three sensors are the: 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. By equipping the three sensors to the unit, the rider is supported by continuous assistance under every riding condition. A more sensitive freewheel and double the number of pawls should lead the cranks to engage much more rapidly and create a more direct and responsive ride as well as greater reliability in this sensative area of electric bike motors.
Yamaha LCD Interface
Display: The LCD multi-function Drive Controller is designed for and has the specs to satisfy all forms of riding.
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.
