Winora Yakun Tour Electric Adventure Touring E-Bike Review

I tried this bike out along with a number of other e-bikes and the Yahama engine in this was the most powerful and solid feeling out of the group. One would expect that as a touring bike it would be capable of carrying a loaded bike and therefore need a bit more power.

Winora Yakon Tour

The new Winora Yakun electric bikes come with Yamaha's latest, lightest and most powerful PW-X mid-engine and 500 Wh battery. 

The Yakun Tour has Magura Hydraulic Disc brakes and the proven Shimano Deore XT 20-speed groupset. Suntour NCX E45 forks for safety and riding comfort and each model has a unique feature, a Schulz G1, patent suspension seat post to even out the bumps on our British roads. The Yakun Tour is fitted with intensely powerful 1050 lumens Lupine SL headlights and integrated tail lights. Also, has an XLC Carrymore luggage rack and Aluminium mudguards. 

The Yamaha PW-X Center mount unit (bottom bracket motor) drive unit is more compact, lighter, stronger: the new Yamaha PW-X definitely has the edge on its predecessor across the board. It has a "triple sensor" system is what holds the product concept of "smooth and powerful" in place. The three sensors are the: 1. a torque sensor that detects pedalling power, 2. a speed sensor that detects the bicycle's speed, and 3. a crank sensor that detects the number of rotations through pedalling. By equipping the three sensors to the unit, the rider is supported by continuous assistance under every riding condition. A more sensitive freewheel and double the number of pawls should lead the cranks to engage much more rapidly and create a more direct and responsive ride as well as greater reliability in this sensitive area of electric bike motors.

The interface is much more robust yet even more compact, the new interface is controlled by an angular remote lever on the bars. It’s positioned between the stem and bars, much like the Shimano Steps.The LCD multi-function Drive Controller supports functions such as Drive control: 4 selectable assist modes, Battery capacity indicator, Assist power meter, Cycle computer, Range meter, Cadence meter, Clock, Removable display and USB connector.

The battery is a 500Wh Lithium-ion 36V battery with a Charging time: approx. 4.0hrs
