New Yamaha EMF Electric Scooter Launched Abroad

While everyone was expecting Yamaha to launch the E01 electric scooter (our speculation stemmed from its recent sighting), the company has instead introduced a different e-scooter, the EMF, in Taiwan.

The Yamaha EMF is a product of its partnership with EV maker, Gogoro. Yes, this is the same company with an ongoing collaboration with our very own Hero MotoCorp.

The swappable batteries come with the 7.6 kW mid-mounted motor, capable of propelling the EMF from standstill to 50kmph in just 3.5-seconds.

YAMAHA EMF ELECTRIC SCOOTER FEATURES

There are plenty of features on offer too. The list includes a digital LED instrument cluster, power modes, LED projector lights, an NFC-enabled smart key, CBS, and even a cup holder compartment.

All these features are complemented by the Yamaha EMF’s striking design. The scooter is offered in three colours: light blue, dark green, and dark black. Not to forget, it’s pretty accessible too, with a seat height and ready-to-go weight of 785mm and 114kg.

The scooter is built around a steel tube chassis, suspended on telescopic forks and twin shock absorbers. Meanwhile, 200mm and 190mm disc brakes clamp on the 10-inch alloy wheels for braking.

EMF Electric Scooter Price

Yamaha is offering the EMF e-scooter at an early-bird price of NT$ 99,800 (Rs 2.68 lakh). It does seem quite pricey by Indian standards, and it’s unlikely that Yamaha will launch it here. But the company is working on an EV specifically for our market, which is expected to come soon.
