YZF-R1

yamaha-yzf-r1

Packed with MotoGP YZR-M1 technology, the next generation R1 pushes the boundaries. With an incredible crossplane engine, short wheelbase chassis and high-tech electronics, R1 is born for the track and takes your riding to a new ball park Specs offer an insight into R1 capabilities. But it’s what you can’t see that makes this focused superbike so special. A central nervous system comprising a 6-axis Inertial Measurement Unit that constantly senses chassis motion in 3D, creating seamless control over traction, slides, front wheel lift, braking and launches.

Yamaha R1. Access the next level now.

Quick Shift System

Quick Shift System


A new higher specification Quickshift System (QSS) offers clutchless upshifting and downshifting that helps to maintain chassis stability for faster lap times, and also reduces the physical and mental input required by the rider.

Digital Instrument Panel

Digital Instrument Panel


The race bred instrument panel has been designed with the concept of creating an effective rider-machine interface. All of the instrument function displays have been concentrated into a single 4.2-inch screen that adopts a fully transmissive Thin Film Transistor (TFT) liquid crystal display. For the display mode, there is also a choice between a Street mode with a priority on displaying information needed for riding on public roads, and a Track mode with a priority on information desired for racing or circuit riding.

4-2-1 Exhaust Pipe

4-2-1 Exhaust Pipe


A 4-2-1 exhaust pipe and mid-ship muffler are adopted to ensure good exhaust efficiency and to contribute to mass centralisation at the same time. To reduce weight, titanium is used in these exhaust pipes and the muffler.

Track-developed Suspension

Track-developed Suspension


The 43mm fully adjustable KYB forks use a large diameter 25mm front axle for a planted feel, while the carefully balanced relationship between the pivot axis, drive sprocket axis and swingarm length give stable, precise and efficient handling performance during acceleration, braking and cornering.

Aluminium Deltabox Frame

Aluminium Deltabox Frame


An aluminium fuel tank (17-litre capacity) designed to reduce weight and provide a wider range of riding position freedom has been adopted. The knee pocket area is deeply indented in a design well fitted for active riding.

Communication Control Unit

Communication Control Unit


This is standard equipment for the R1M and optional for the R1. A Communication Control Unit (CCU) enables checks of the various forms of machine information and simplifies the setting process in order to heighten the instrument panel's function as a rider-machine interface. Comprised of the CCU and a GPS antenna, running data can be recorded via a data logger, and with the GPS function, the system also enables automatic lap time recording on circuit course

High Luminance LED Lights

High Luminance LED Lights


An LED headlight and LED position lights are adopted for their advantages of low electricity consumption, light weight and high luminosity. When the ignition is turned on, the high-intensity LED position lights come on almost instantly. The straight-line, sharp illumination gives the R1 a distinctive and original frontal expression even in the dark.

Aluminium 17-Litre Fuel Tank

Aluminium 17-Litre Fuel Tank


An aluminium fuel tank (17-litre capacity) designed to reduce weight and provide a wider range of riding position freedom has been adopted. The knee pocket area is deeply indented in a design well fitted for active riding.

Cast Magnesium Wheels

Cast Magnesium Wheels


To bring out the high performance of the lightweight body, the first cast magnesium wheels ever on a mass-production model are adopted.

High Volume Air Intake

High Volume Air Intake


For optimal intake efficiency a YZR-M1-type central air inlet feeds a large capacity 10.5 litre airbox. Fresh air is force fed into the electronically activated Yamaha Chip Controlled Intake (YCC-I) funnels that adjust their length to match engine rpm for optimum power characteristics, to give high levels of useable performance.

ABS and Unified Brake System

ABS and Unified Brake System


Both an Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) and Yamaha's Unified Brake System are adopted. With the Unified Brake System, operating the front brake also generates corresponding brake pressure at the rear brake. The distribution of braking force is based on input from the IMU regarding the machine's attitude and banking angle at the time of brake application.

M1-derived 200PS crossplane engine

M1-derived 200PS crossplane engine


The R1 is powered by a 998cc crossplane 4 cylinder 4-valve engine that develops 200PS - without ram air pressurisation. Derived from our winning YZR-M1 MotoGP bike, its crossplane crankshaft gives an uneven 270° - 180° - 90° - 180° firing sequence for high levels of linear torque.

High-Compression Cylinder Head

High-Compression Cylinder Head


To achieve optimal performance the engine uses a high compression 01:01 PM cylinder head featuring a pent roof combustion chamber with large diameter intake and exhaust valves. And for instant response with high power and strong linear torque, the R1 is equipped with titanium con rods and forged aluminium pistons.

6-Axis IMU

6-Axis IMU


This model adopts the world's first 6-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) ever for a production motorcycle. It consists of a gyro sensor (angular velocity sensor) that measures machine pitch, roll and yaw, and a G-sensor (accelerometer) that measures acceleration in the forward-backward, up-down and right-left directions. This technology makes possible the cornering control functions of both a Traction Control System (TCS) and Slide Control System (SCS) (introduced on the 2012 MotoGP machine, first use on a production motorcycle).
