Yamaha Booster & Booster Easy – Electric Moped Runs 120km In A Single Charge

Yamaha, the Japanese mobility giant, has recently launched two new electric models in its Urban Mobility range: the BOOSTER Easy eBike and the BOOSTER S-pedelec electric. These two models are designed to offer a clean, quiet, and accessible way to move around towns and cities with zero emissions. They are also inspired by Yamaha’s legendary scooters from the past, such as the BW’s 50 and the MBK Booster, which were popular among young riders looking for fun and freedom on two wheels.

The BOOSTER Easy and BOOSTER look very similar and share the same lightweight chassis design, which features an open honeycomb structure in the front part of the frame. The frame is made of aluminum using a die-casting process, which gives it strength and stability. The bikes also have fat tires that provide a large contact surface on the road and minimize rolling resistance.

The difference between the two models is in their performance: the BOOSTER Easy is an eBike with a maximum pedal-assisted speed of 25 km/h, while the BOOSTER is an AM license S-pedelec or electric moped that can power to a maximum pedal-assisted speed of 45 km/h. Both models are powered by Yamaha’s own drive unit, which delivers smooth and responsive acceleration and torque.

Both the bikes come with Yamaha’s exclusive fork covers and front fender as well as 20-inch wheels. These tires are 4 inches thick and provide high traction with less rolling resistance. Yamaha Booster models include dual 180mm-diameter disc brakes with an electric cut-off sensor.

Both the ebikes come with a Supernova headlight and a Koso LED taillight. The Booster Easy gets a 1.7-inch LCD display, while the S-pedelec includes a 2.8-inch color dot-matrix TFT display. They can be paired with a smartphone via Bluetooth.

The BOOSTER Easy and BOOSTER are part of Yamaha’s Switch ON strategy, which aims to establish the brand as one of the major players in the European 2-wheel EV market. Yamaha has also announced other electric models, such as the NEO’s electric scooter and the Moro 07, Wabash, and Crosscore eBikes. Yamaha is also committed to becoming a carbon-neutral manufacturer by 2035.

The new BOOSTER models are expected to be available in spring 2023, but Yamaha has not yet revealed their prices or availability details. They are likely to appeal to urban commuters who are looking for a stylish, convenient, and eco-friendly way to get around their cities.
