Yamaha Motor Co. Ltd and Haibike have presented the new SDURO E-bikes to the Yamaha MotoGP Teams at the Circuito de Jerez de la Frontera – Spain.
Haibike supplied three SDUROs each to the Movistar Yamaha MotoGP team, Monster Yamaha Tech3 Team and Forward Racing Team, to be used as environmentally friendly paddock bikes at the European rounds of the 2015 MotoGP season.
Winora (Haibike parent company), was established in 1914 and Yamaha have been supplying Power Assist System E-KITs for the high-tech Winora model E-bikes since 2013.
Winora’s Susanne Puello (Managing Director of Winora Group), Felix Puello (Head of R&D and Brand Management) and their ePerformance-rider Guido Tschugg presented nine innovative E-bikes in total, equipped with Yamaha E-KITs, to the Yamaha MotoGP teams during a ceremony on the main straight of the circuit in Jerez.
The Haibike SDURO E-bikes fit Movistar Yamaha MotoGP perfectly, not only thanks to their special colour schemes matching the team’s design, but also due to the models’ refined yet exciting character. The SDURO models are especially designed for sporty customers such as nine-time World Champion Valentino Rossi and four-time World Champion Jorge Lorenzo, making the transportation within the paddock areas fun and stress free.
Yamaha has been a pioneer in the development of electrically power-assisted bicycles since 1993 when the company became actively involved in building the e-bike market in Japan.
