What we say…

The YZF-R1. My God it's sexy. More tech stuff. Better looking. Just bloody exciting really.

The R1 pushes every performance button. Ferocious acceleration. Pin point handling. Sounds, well.. vicious. That cross plane motor stomps out power everywhere with a growl that starts deep in the back of its throat and ends up deep in the back of yours. The super sport experience doesn't get any better than this.

Quality?... Give over, It's a Yamaha!


M1-derived 200PS crossplane engine

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


High-compression cylinder head and lightweight internals

To achieve optimal performance the engine uses a high compression 01:01PM 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

For optimal intake efficiency a YZR-M1-type central air inlet feeds a large capacity 10.5 litre air box. 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 and midship muffler

For peak power and strong linear torque, the cross plane 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.


Compact Deltabox chassis

The aluminium Delta box frame features a long upward-truss type swing arm 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.


YZR-M1 inspired cowling

With its central forced air intake, high screen and low headlight position, the R1's aerodynamic front cowl has an unmistakable 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.

What Yamaha says…

Packed with MotoGP YZR-M1 technology, a cross plane engine, short wheelbase chassis and high-tech electronics, the R1 is 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.
