Yamaha Bicycles Releases New CrossConnect and CrossCore Colors

New Commuter and Fitness e-Bikes Roll into Bike Shops in Time for New Year’s Resolutions

CYPRESS, Calif., Jan. 09, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Yamaha Motor Corp., USA, is delivering new color options for its lineup of class one commuter- and fitness-focused e-Bikes, the CrossConnect and CrossCore. The new color schemes are available from select e-Bike retail stores now, just in time for New Year’s resolutions shoppers.

Designed for all-day comfort with power, durability and performance, the Yamaha CrossConnect is an exciting and fully accessorized urban commuter with integrated components like front and rear fenders, rear rack, and headlight that maximize versatility and functional reliability. An air sleeve suspension fork with adjustable compression is unique to Yamaha’s e-commuter, with a through-axle that increases the overall stiffness and strength of the front hub, and it can be fully locked out for even greater efficiency on pavement. The Yamaha CrossConnect’s new colors include Crimson/Sand and Indigo/Sunset starting at $2,999 MSRP.

With a comfortable and ergonomic design, Yamaha’s CrossCore delivers a hybrid bike for the fitness-focused rider. The CrossCore features optimized geometry, class-leading power and performance features and classic Yamaha durability and reliability. The CrossCore is also equipped with mounts for a water bottle cage, fenders, and rear rack, while also pre-wired for a rear rack light as standard essentials to keep the rider’s focus on the workout. The Yamaha CrossCore’s new colors include Ocean Blue/Bright White and Dark Olive/Black starting at $2,399 MSRP.

Both the CrossConnect and CrossCore are powered by Yamaha’s PW Series SE drive unit, a class one motor with four power levels providing speed support up to 20 mph, cadence support up to 110 RPMs, and max power of 500 watts. As part of the most natural and smoothest power assist system on the market, Yamaha’s drive unit adapts immediately and with great efficiency to what is going on during the ride, maintaining seamless transitions through the power assist levels. Yamaha Power Assist Bicycles feature a triple sensor system with the speed sensor designed into the rear hub and a “zero cadence” assist function that immediately detects any forward pedaling movement and activates the power assist system.

Yamaha is the only manufacturer with more than 25 years of experience designing complete power assist e-Bikes from frame to motor. Yamaha Motor Company, Ltd. (YMC) launched the world’s first electrically power-assisted bicycle in 1993 and has since produced more than 4 million drive units and sold more than 2 million Yamaha Power Assist Bicycles. YMC supplies class-leading e-Bike Systems to select OEM partners worldwide.
