Yamaha soft-launching line of house-brand e-bikes at show

LAS VEGAS (BRAIN) — Yamaha, known for its motorcycles and powersports products, is raising the curtain — halfway, at least — on a new, four-model line of electric bikes that it will launch in the United States and Japan early next year.  Yamaha is displaying only prototypes at its booth at the Interbike show this week, and won’t publicly disclose spec and other details until a formal product introduction later this year.

At Interbike, interested retailers can learn more specifics under a nondisclosure agreement so they can include Yamaha in their 2018 buying plans
