Outline

This electrically power-assisted bicycle combines the lightness and excellent riding performance of a road bike with the advantages of an electric power-assist. It moves away from the orientation of conventional electrically power-assisted bicycles as utilitarian and convenient personal vehicles, and instead puts forth a whole new idea of these bicycles as vehicles for recreation and enjoyment. The YPJ-R offers a way to enjoy road biking like never before, both for young people with a strong interest in cycling as a hobby and for users who want to comfortably enjoy mid/long-distance riding.
