According to spy shots, Yamaha could have put the E01 concept into production. The motorcycle manufacturer could now be testing a development mule of the electric scooter in the international market. Speculation is that the new Yamaha electric scooter might be in a production-ready state and the brand could launch the bike later this year.

The Yamaha E01 comes with a futuristic design language and a new generation of sporty styling. The E01 features an aerodynamic front end with an apron integrated charging dock. The fascia also comes with Yamaha YZF-R1 inspired headlamps and a large front fender. The Yamaha E01 features maxi-scooter looks and a large windscreen. The electric scooter comes with a sleek floating tail section and a rear mud hugger.

Yamaha E01 – Technical Specifications
Powering the Yamaha E01 will be an air-cooled DC brushless motor with a fixed lithium-ion battery. The brand has not yet revealed the performance figures of the E01, however, Yamaha claims that the E01 will come with a power output comparable to a 125cc scooter engine. The electric scooter measures 1,960mm in length, 810mm in width and 1,190mm in height. The scooter rides on 13-inch alloy wheels on both ends with disc brakes and ABS. Speculation is that the new Yamaha electric scooter will offer a range of approximately 75-85 km on a single charge.
While there are no official words from the Japanese manufacturer about the launch in India. However, looking at the electric vehicle demand in the Indian market, the brand is likely to introduce the E01 if it is able to localise the bike here in India.
