  • Publication number: 20170087995
    Abstract: A vehicle includes an electric motor and a clutch disposed on a drive shaft. The electric motor is disposed on one side from a middle of the vehicle in the vehicle width direction, while the clutch and a sprocket are disposed on a second side from the middle of the vehicle in the vehicle width direction. The clutch is connected to a clutch lever so that the state of engagement of the clutch is changed in response to an operation of the clutch lever. It is thus possible to increase the degree of freedom in torque transmission control by a driver, to increase an output torque of the electric motor, and to reduce the size of the clutch.
