Yamaha’s options for getting around town
Yamaha Booster Easy: Basically we can say that the Booster Easy is a very special bike focused 100% on getting around the city and with solutions designed and adapted to this. We already explain all the details about her at First Rides that we publish and the video that accompanies it. However, we will remember some details:
The painting is actually one aluminum chassis with honeycomb structure which dispenses with the top tube to facilitate the maneuver of getting on and off the bike, even with a skirt. It is one-size-fits-all, but with a well-studied and useful shape in the city. The low bar shape it allows more ease and comfort to get on and off or be supported when stopping at traffic lights, etc. The tires are from 20×4″with a large ball, which together with the low center of gravity of the set gives more agility when accelerating and safety in urban traffic.
The engine is the Yamaha Pwseries-S2 75 Nm with Yamaha 630 Wh battery very integrated in the design of the frame but easily removable to load it independently of the bike. Information and control is in the hands of the Yamaha display A with LCD screen. The transmission is in the hands of a system on the reel Pure Twist Shipping variable planetary technology (CVP) with 38-tooth chainring, with Promax DSK-925 brakes with 180 mm discs. This system ensures minimal maintenance and a progressive transmission system operated by a rotary control on the handlebars.
The Booster Easy also equips one Zoom CH-879 80mm travel front fork, which together with the large ball of the wheels, offers us great rolling comfort on the urban asphalt, which is not always in good condition. As for other solutions adapted to city use, it has a rear luggage rack with a capacity of up to 25 kg and the option of placing baskets and interior bags and integrated LED lighting. Its PVP is €3,299. You have more information at this link.
Yamaha Crosscore RC: With a clear urban spirit, but a point of versatility for “fitness” outings or outings on simple unpaved paths we have the Crosscore RC. In this case we find a more conventional tailoring table a hydroformed aluminum with 27.5×2.0″ wheels in which we find anchorages for fenders and a rear luggage rack which, together with a comfortable geometry, opens up the possibility for it to be a tool for trips at a calmer and more casual pace.
The engine is the Yamaha PWSeries-ST of 70 Nm of torque and Zero Cadence technology (which we already explained what it consisted of this First Pedalades); it also has a 500 Wh Yamaha battery. We also have the information on Display A of the brand. The Crosscore RC rides one SR Suntour NEX E25 63mm travel fork. Transmission is in the hands of a 9-speed Shimano system with 44-tooth chainring and 11-36 cassette with Shimano BR-MT200 hydraulic disc brakes.
It is available in 3 sizes (S, M and L) and two finishes (Shiver White and Urban Sage) with a RRP of €2,499. You can see her in detail here.
Yamaha Wabash RT: More focused on gravel trips, although also perfect for getting around the city thanks to its versatility, we find the Wabash RT. The frame is also hydroformed aluminum which, in addition to being able to fit bikepacking bags, has threads for rear luggage racks. The fork is made of aluminum and mounts 700×45 mm wheels.
Again we find the engine Yamaha PWSeries-ST of 70 Nm of torque and 500 Wh battery with Display A. Transmission is in the hands of the 11-speed Shimano GRX RX600 group with a 44-tooth chainring and the 11-42 cassette. Brakes are Shimano GRX RX400. Highlights the fact of the Wabash RT equipped with a telescopic stem of 60 mm travel (sizes M and L).
The Yamaha Wabash RT is available in 3 sizes (S, M and L) and a single finish (Blue Steel) with an RRP of €2,499. You’ve got more information here.
