KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • What competition did the Yamaha TY-E compete in?

    Per Yamaha, the TY-E competed in the 2023 All Japan Trial Championship.
  • What was the goal in creating the Yamaha TY-E?

    According to the brand, the goal of making the TY-E was deliver fun that surpasses that of models using internal combustion engines.
  • According to the Japanese motorcycle brand, the Yamaha TY-E competed against conventional gasoline-powered motorbikes at the aforementioned competition and is the only all-electric entry in the race.

    Riding the Yamaha TY-E was Kenichi Kuroyama, a professional Trials rider.

    “Electric vehicles are often spoken of in an environmental context, but they have their own unique points of appeal, like the output characteristics they are capable of, for example,” said TY-E project Founder and Lead Developer Takeshi Toyota.

    “I believe they have the potential to deliver more fun and performance than current internal combustion engines can if we move away from trying to make them all-conquering and instead narrow things down and focus on specialization… Having long range is not a vital factor in trials, so it's a form of competition suited to demonstrating what electric powertrains have to offer,” he added.

    Per Yamaha, the goal of developing the Yamaha TY-E electric motorcycle is to “deliver fun that surpasses that of models using internal combustion engines by taking advantage of traits unique to EVs (electric vehicles).”

    To this end, the developers and engineers that worked on the Yamaha TY-E used a tightly packaged combination of the latest parts and components, including a laminated monocoque frame, a high-density model-specific battery, and an electric power unit paired to a clutch and flywheel for delivering instantaneous power.

    In the Philippines, Yamaha is yet to offer an electric motorcycle although with the growing popularity of battery-powered bikes and the increasing number of charging stations in the country, more Filipinos could be open to using electric motorbikes.
