Is every stop light or crosswalk line a chance to win? Are standing-start sprints and total concentration on your commute to work your thing? If so, the Yamaha Urban Rush pedal-assist drop bar road bike is just right for you. It offers a perfect balance of power, stiffness, and speed in a sleek road bike chassis.

At the heart of Urban Rush is Yamaha’s awesome PWSeries SE center mount drive unit. Integrated to the bottom bracket, the drive unit provides a low center of gravity for exceptional handling. Yamaha’s unique side docking battery mount allows for a frame design with a lower stand-over height for added convenience when coming to a stop. While providing the smooth power assist expected by many e-bike users, Yamaha’s systems are equipped with powerful support and a natural, organic pedal-assist feel even in the high-speed setting. The 500 Watt-hour Lithium-ion battery pack provides reliable and long-lasting energy to power your rides, and when it’s time to replenish you can quickly charge the battery pack on or off the bike with the high-speed charger. Exclusive to Yamaha Power Assist Bicycles is a speed sensor engineered into the rear hub. Clean, protected, and out of sight, this sensor recognizes the slightest change in bicycle speed and helps adjust motor input to deliver a smooth and natural power assist feel for the ultimate ride experience. And for those riders who love ride information, the LCD multi-function display comes loaded with a full suite of functions, including speedometer, average speed, maximum speed, odometer, battery range, cadence, and stopwatch.

The Urban Rush's traditional road handlebars allow for a variety of hand positions while maximizing aerodynamic efficiency for cruising quickly through town. The aluminum frame and fork have internal routing that keeps cables neatly hidden and protected. Shimano’s durable 10-speed Tiagra drivetrain handles shifting duties, and the double chainring ensures optimum gear range to conquer any climb your commute presents. Shimano Tiagra hydraulic disc brakes with 160mm center lock rotors ensure strong, confident braking in all conditions. Speaking of all conditions, the Urban Rush’s frame and fork have mounting tabs for adding on accessories such as fenders or a rear rack, to help dial in your ultimate commuter. To increase your safety and low-light visibility, it's equipped with a powerful LED headlight, with an on/off button built into the multi-function display for easy access while riding. To up your commute game and enjoy the thrill of speed, the Urban Rush is the ultimate in road bike power, style, and performance.
