YZF-R1

The All New Yamaha YZF R1 Born for the track

YZF-R1 is a lot like its track brother YZR-M1. With pure MotoGP blood, a crossplane engine, short wheelbase chassis and high-tech electronics, the YZF-R1 is ready to take your riding experience to a whole new level.Developed on the same racing DNA as its elder brother, YZF-R1 doesn’t shy away from flaunting its massive power of 200 hp, perfect weight of 200 kg and a 1405 mm wheelbase. But it’s what you can’t see that makes it all the more special.

The Inertial Measurement Unit constantly senses chassis motion in 3D, creating controllability over traction, slides, front wheel lift, braking and launches. Moreover, its updated Quick Shift System (QSS) offers clutch-free downshifting as well as upshifting.

Chance to reveal your true potential

he R1’s Lift Control System (LCS) is updated with more progressive mapping that improves forward drive when the system intervenes. The compact chassis features a magnesium rear frame, long swingarm and track developed racing ABS for outstanding handling. What’s more, the suspension and magnesium wheels are designed to race and undoubtedly make this bike a serious contender. It’s not a machine. It’s your opportunity to discover your true potential.

Features

Cutting-Edge Crossplane Engine

The YZF-R1 is powered by a 998 cc, crossplane, 4-cylinder, 4-valve engine that develops 200 hp – 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.

Lightweight titanium exhaust and midship muffler

For peak power and strong linear torque, the 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 mid ship muffler contributes towards mass centralization and emits a unique growl.

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.

Compact Deltabox Chassis

The aluminium Deltabox frame features a long upward-truss type swingarm and magnesium rear frame, underlining the R1’s strong YZR-M1 racebike heritage. The short 1405 mm wheelbase chassis and the R1’s low wet weight of just 199 kg give the YZF-R1 a high level of agility and responsiveness for outstanding race and track performance.

Thin Film Transistor (TFT) LCD instrument panel

The YZF-R1’s instrument panel is one of the most sophisticated units fitted to any motorcycle, and features a Thin Film Transistor (TFT) LCD panel. The multi-function display shows a wide range of data is shown in full colour, making all the information easy to understand.

YZR-M1 inspired Cowling

With its central forced air intake, high screen and low headlight position, the YZF-R1’s aerodynamic front cowl has an unmistakable YZR-M1 race bike silhouette. Compact LED headlights on either side of the air intake emphasise the race-ready look, while twin LED running lights give this superbike a truly unique face.

High-compression Cylinder Head and lightweight internals

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 YZF-R1 is equipped with titanium con rods and forged aluminium pistons.

ABS with Unified Brake System

The track developed racing ABS and Unified Braking System provide maximum braking performance. UBS inhibits unwanted rear-end motion during braking by activating the rear brake when the front brake is applied, with force distribution based on the bike’s attitude and lean angle. 4-piston radial mounted front calipers ride on big 320mm rotors for excellent stopping power.

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.

Improved quick shift system (QSS)

A new higher specification Quickshift System (QSS) offers clutchless upshifting and downshifting. By giving seamless full throttle upshifts and quicker downshifts, the QSS helps to maintain chassis stability for higher levels of controllability – and also reduces the physical and mental input required by the rider.

Magnesium wheels, aluminium fuel tank

The YZF-R1’s 17-inch wheels are manufactured from magnesium in order to minimise unsprung weight for responsive suspension performance – and the beautifully crafted 17-litre fuel tank is made from aluminium.

6-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU)

The highly sophisticated 6-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) is equipped with Gyro/G sensors that monitor 3D motion data which is sent to the ECU – and this activates the lift control system (LIF) as well as the banking angle sensitive rear wheel Slide Control System (SCS) and Traction Control System (TCS) for greater control.
