Yamaha EMF, the first electric scooter released in Taiwan

Yamaha EMF, the first electric scooter released in Taiwan

Yamaha EMF

For a long time we were convinced that the first electric scooter produced by Yamaha would be the much talked about Yamaha E01, but the Japanese two-wheeled giant surprised everyone by releasing, for the moment only in Taiwan, the new Yamaha EMF electric scooter.

Yamaha EMF was born from the collaboration between the Japanese company and Gogoro, the largest and most widespread manufacturer of electric scooters in Taiwan, able to gain a huge share of the market also thanks to the spread of battery swap stations. Obviously the new Yamaha EMF is compatible with Gogoro batteries, which means that when the charge runs out you can simply reach one of Gogoro's battery swap stations and in a few moments you can install a charged battery in your scooter. It is an excellent system for managing small batteries in city environments, and it is not for nothing that it is a method that has caught on in those parts.

Thanks to its small size, the new Yamaha EMF is agile and snappy: it is powered by a 7.6 kW central engine - about 10 horsepower, comparable to that of a 125cc scooter - enough to launch from 0 to 50 km / h in just 3.5 seconds.

The saddle is 785mm high from the ground and has a total weight of 114 kg, which makes it really accessible and easy to use.

In Taiwan, Yamaha offers the new EMG at a figure equal to about € 3150, but to date we have no information on a possible commercialization in the old continent, also because in the absence of the Gogoro battery exchange stations , Yamaha EMF loses one of its most important features.

The scooter is powered by a mid-mounted motor, which generates 10.30ps of max power at 3,000rpm and 26Nm of peak torque at 2,500rpm.

However, it comes with support for Gogoro’s swappable battery, which means you can simply just swap the battery from a swapping station, when it is fully drained.

The scooter also comes with CBS for efficient braking. The company claims that the EMF electric scooter has been designed in a way to achieve improved control and handling.
