Yamaha release video of PES1 concept

So will they actually make it?

Yamaha has released a video of its PES1 electric concept being ridden on track.

The PES1 concept was on display at the Tokyo Motor Show but now appears to be a very real and functioning bike.

According to Yamaha, the bike will be powered by a brushless motor mounted into a monocoque frame. The electric motor will be mated to a gearbox to allow for manual shifting, however the transmission can also be set to automatic.

Yamaha says the battery modules are easily replaceable and the bike will include smartphone integration capabilities.

The PES1 is said to weigh less than 100 kg.
