The newly developed oil-cooled electric motor is compact in size (its main feature), and it treats the mechanical and electrical components as a single entity, integrating the gear and inverter into one unit. Yamaha says the motor has also been developed in anticipation of installation and use of multiple units on a single vehicle. Yamaha will leverage its production technology and know-how in the casting, machining and assembly fields that give the company the flexibility to adapt to the needs of motorcycles and its numerous other products, its prototyping equipment and facilities and more in order to develop prototype motors tailoring to the specific requirements of clients in a short period.
