Yamaha R1

All new Yamaha YZF-R1. We R1

Packed with MotoGP YZR-M1 technology, the next generation R1 is here. With a new crossplane engine, short wheelbase chassis and high-tech electronics, it’s ready to connect to your body and take your riding to a new level.

Developed without compromise using YZR-M1 MotoGP technology, the R1 was born for the track. 200PS, 199kg and 1,405mm wheelbase give an insight into its capabilities. But it’s what you can’t see that makes this focused superbike so special.

Its central nervous system is a 6-axis Inertial Measurement Unit that constantly senses chassis motion in 3D, creating controllability over traction, slides, front wheel lift, braking and launches. Yamaha R1. We R1.

Features

The era of total control

YZF-R1

Producing 200PS, the R1’s new 998cc inline 4-cylinder 4-valve engine is our most powerful production bike. And with its M1-derived crossplane technology, this next generation superbike pushes out strong linear torque with outstanding traction.The short wheelbase Deltabox chassis features a magnesium rear frame and long swingarm for outstanding handling on the track. And race developed suspension and magnesium wheels show that this bike is a serious contender.But what really gives you the edge is the R1’s sophisticated electronic control technology. By offering precise control, every rider has the chance to reveal their true potential.

M1-derived 200PS crossplane engine

M1-derived 200PS crossplane engine

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

High-compression cylinder head and lightweight internals

High-compression cylinder head and lightweight internals

To achieve optimal performance the new engine uses a high compression 13:1 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.

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.

Lightweight titanium exhaust

Lightweight titanium exhaust

For peak power and strong linear torque, the new crossplane engine is equipped with a lightweight 4-2-1 exhaust system. A servomotor controlled exhaust valve adjusts gas flow for enhanced response and stronger engine output, while the compact muffler contributes towards mass centralization and emits a unique growl.

Compact Deltabox chassis

Compact Deltabox chassis

The all-new aluminium Deltabox frame features a long upward-truss type swingarm and magnesium rear frame, underlining the R1’s strong M1 race bike heritage. The short 1,405mm wheelbase chassis and the R1’s low wet weight of just 199kg give the R1 a high level of agility and responsiveness for outstanding race and track performance.

Unique and distinctive new look

Unique and distinctive new look

With its central forced air intake, high screen and low headlight position, the next generation R1’s aerodynamic front cowl has a distinctive race bike silhouette. Compact new LED headlights are ‘hidden’ either side of the air intake to emphasize the race-ready look, while twin LED position lights give this new superbike a truly unique face.

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.

ABS with Unified Brake System

ABS with Unified Brake System

The new R1’s dual 320mm front discs and monoblock calipers – as well as the 220mm rear disc – are equipped with a sophisticated banking sensitive ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) as well as Yamaha’s Unified Brake System that enable the rider to achieve high levels of controllability in different circuit or road situations.

Race and track ready

Race and track ready

The new R1 is a track-focused machine with YZR-M1 DNA flowing in its veins. Its high level of equipment includes lightweight cast magnesium wheels – and for an efficient riding position the 17-litre aluminium fuel tank features deep knee recesses.

6-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU)

6-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU)

A highly sophisticated 6-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) delivers precise data on every aspect of running machine attitude to the ECU – which activates the R1’s electronic control technology, including its MotoGP-derived banking angle sensitive rear wheel Slide Control System (SCS) and Traction Control System (TCS).

3-dimensional control

3-dimensional control

Equipped with a banking angle sensitive rear wheel Slide Control System (SCS) and Traction Control System (TCS) – as well as a Front Lift Control system (LIF) in addition to a Launch Control System (LCS) and Quick Shift System (QSS) – the R1’s electronic control technology enables every rider to attain their full potential on the track.
