Yamaha has taken electric trials performance to a whole new level with the Yamaha TY-E 2.0 dirt bike. Boasting an all-new frame, upgraded suspension and powerful motor, is it truly one of the best electric dirt bikes? We’ll find out.

Instead, they raced it at select rounds of the 2022 FIM (Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme) Trial World Championship to promote carbon neutrality in off road competitions.

It’s a total bummer, I know. But in hopes that Yamaha finally decides to release it to the public, will it even be worth the wait? Will it stand out from the rest of the electric trials dirt bikes already out there? 

Read on to find out.

The synchronous AC Motor found in the TYE Yamaha makes sure that the bike is responsive to extremely precise controls and ensures that riders have full control at all times.

Yamaha TY-E 2.0 Brakes and Suspension

There’s been officially no word from Yamaha of the TY-E 2.0’s brakes and suspension specs, but judging from YouTube videos featuring the TY-E 2.0, it uses regular black disc brakes on both front and rear.

It can also be seen that the Yamaha TY-E 2.0 uses Tech Suspension telescopic front forks and an unknown coil spring rear suspension.

Yamaha TY-E 2.0 Wheels and Tires

There’s also no official word from Yamaha about the TY-E 2.0’s wheels and tires, but again judging from snapshots and YouTube videos of the electric trials dirt bike, it’s seen to be using Dunlop K950 tires.

The Dunlop K950 is a trials dirt bike tire designed to perform in the most extreme conditions. 

Its thick tread and advanced rubber compound provide superior grip on any terrain, while its deep-lugged design offers enhanced self-cleaning capabilities and increased traction in wet, muddy or sandy environments.

Yamaha TY-E 2.0 Other Features

Compared to the previous model, the traction on this Yamaha electric motorcycle has been increased by combining mechanical components like the clutch and flywheel with precisely calibrated electronic motor control that can detect even minute variations in grip. The bike also sports a hydraulic clutch – which is quite a rare feature among electric dirt bikes.

How Much Is a Yamaha Ty-E 2.0 Trials Bike?

The price of the Yamaha electric trials bike has yet to be officially announced by the motor company since it is still in its developing stage. Prices may vary depending on your location, but there’s no official quote released by Yamaha yet, which means you can’t find the Yamaha TYE for sale anywhere for now.

When Will Yamaha Make the TY-E 2.0 Electric Motorcycle?

Although the Prototype for the Yamaha TY-E 2.0 was unveiled back in 2022, it is still under development, and there has been no news as of yet about when the new Yamaha trials bike will be commercially released.
