This is a nice thing to see ahead of the big show in Japan, a range of new electric scooters from Yamaha that (for once) look pretty promising and the sort of scoot you could see yourself actually jumping on. Two of the three are concepts, one is going into production.

We're liking this concept E01. It'll look great parked up next to an R1 in the garage, donchathink?

We’re all over this Yamaha E01 (above), which is a concept that is apparently comparable to a petrol-powered 125cc scooter, Yamaha says it can be charged quickly, is comfortable and nippy around a city. Looks-wise the big wheels and MT-range -esque colours and materials win us over.

The E02 might only be a concept, but it's funky enough to get made - surely?
