Saitama City in Japan, Honda
Motor Co and Yamaha Motor Co will begin evaluation testing towards the
expansion of the use of electric motorcycles. As part of Saitama City’s “E-Kizuna
Project” measures to promote the spread of electric vehicles, this
collaborative initiative by the three parties also aims to resolve the issues
in areas which are lacking in transport accessibility.
This evaluation testing programme
marks the first joint initiative between a local government body (which aims
for a low-carbon society in which electric vehicles can be used in safety and
comfort), and the two motorcycle manufacturers (which aim for the spread of EV
motorcycles). It is an important step towards the reduction of CO2 emissions
and the spread of electric motorcycles.
Evaluation testing will utilise
Honda and Yamaha’s electric technology and Saitama City’s existing
infrastructure in order to realise a low-carbon society and verify the extent
of improvement in transportation convenience in areas lacking in transport
Building on its previous
initiatives towards the expansion of use of electric automobiles, Saitama City
hopes that by encouraging the usage of EV motorcycles as well, this evaluation
testing program will contribute towards realising a low-carbon society in which
a wide range of electric mobility options can be used in safety and comfort.
Honda and Yamaha are taking
this initiative so that more riders can lead more fulfilling lifestyles by
experiencing the joy of travel on environmentally-friendlier EV motorcycles,
and bring further vitality to the motorcycle market.
