Power Unit

Linear throttle response

The EV-neo responds instantly to throttle input, transmitting the appropriate amount of electricity to the motor to produce the desired output. The result is throttle response that reflects the rider's intentions precisely during acceleration and deceleration.

Regenerative deceleration for an engine braking feel

When the rider releases the throttle grip, the EV-neo performs regenerative deceleration to charge the battery. The EV-neo optimizes the amount of torque produced during regenerative recharging to offer an engine braking feel similar to that of a gasoline engine motorcycle. This feature further adds to the EV-neo's natural and familiar riding characteristics, which riders of traditional gasoline engine motorcycles are certain to appreciate.

Zero magnetic cogging* for easy pushing with power off

Thanks to the automatic centrifugal clutch, the rider is able to power off and walk with the EV-neo without any magnetic cogging. In combination with the low placement of the battery for a low center of gravity, this feature helps make the EV-neo as easy to manage as a conventional gasoline engine motorcycle.

Occurring when the power to the vehicle is off, magnetic cogging is rotational resistance caused by the attraction between the permanent magnets located in the interior of the motor and the steel parts surrounding the magnets. In general, a motor that produces a greater amount of torque and a power unit that has a higher deceleration gear ratio will produce a greater degree of magnetic cogging.
