Yamaha O±O or O Plus Minus O is a conceptual electric powered assisted bike born out of the project of “AH A MAY”. It’s a special Yamaha project that made two design divisions of two Yamahas exchanged their design fields. For this project, a musical instrument designer has come up with an e-bike that re-charges itself. When the battery power is out, a rider can place the bike on a recharging stand and pedal it to re-charge the battery. This battery power can be used not only for the bike but also to generate electricity to power musical instruments or other electric appliances. This cool bike aims to support healthy lifestyle and positive attitudes toward power usage.
