A short introduction to the electronic systems that allow the R1 rider to focus fully on riding, with extreme precision and without distractions. LCS, LIF, TCS, SCS, QSS, PWR, YRC… what do they mean and what are the benefits?Read More
Completely new crossplane crankshaft design to increase the throttle and drive ability by reducing the inertia force.
The system changes the length of the intake funnel in order to maximize cylinder filling efficiency.
A ramp type slipper clutch, which absorbs the back torque forces transmitted from the rear wheel due to the engine braking forces.
An electronic-control throttle that is in fact a world’s first in being adopted on a production motorcycle, on the 2006 R6.
A plated cylinder in a single-unit with crankcase made possible by rapid plating technology. Adopted on the first YZF-R1 and other models.
A technology for forged aluminum pistons and their mass production that enables lightweight design. First adopted on the ’96 model YZF1000 ThunderAce. Used since on large-displacement sports models from the YZF-R series to the Midnight Star.
A variable valve system that eliminates “valleys” in the torque development curve in 4-stroke engines. With continual improvement since the first adoption on the ’87 model FZR400R, the latest version is used on the YZF-R1.
A high-rigidity aluminum frame construction that helps achieve outstanding handling stability. Adopted first on the ’85 model “TZR250”. Since then it has been adopted on important supersport models. The further evolved Deltabox frame now appears on the “R” series models.
