    World GP 60th Anniversary livery

    First seen on Yamaha’s early GP bikes, the R1 World GP 60th Anniversary’s iconic red "speed block" design on a pure-white bodywork is amongst the most famous and best-loved graphics of all time. The thick red stripe running along the top of the tank and tail captures the spirit of the pioneering factory racers – while the gold-coloured wheels and yellow front number plate are coming straight from the racetrack.

    Aerodynamic M1-style bodywork

    The R1 World GP 60th Anniversary looks ultra-sharp with its M1-style cowling and fully integrated fairing that give the bike an aggressive race-developed profile. By enabling you to tuck in close to the bike, this lightweight bodywork achieves the highest levels of aerodynamic efficiency for outstanding high-speed performance.

    High-efficiency crossplane engine

    The R1 World GP 60th Anniversary's 998cc EU5 engine features a crossplane crankshaft with an uneven 270°-180 -90°-180° firing sequence that delivers strong, linear torque. And the high-efficiency intake system along with specially designed finger-follower rocker arms contribute towards the remarkable high rpm performance of this race developed engine.

    43 mm KYB front forks

    The R1 World GP 60th Anniversary is equipped with high-specification 43 mm KYB forks featuring laminated type damping valves. Together with the advanced rear shock, this suspension system gives you a sensation of being connected directly to the road surface, making the R1 WGP feel as if it is an extension of your body.

    Brake Control (BC) System

    Technology is transforming the way we ride, and the latest R1 World GP 60th Anniversary features no fewer than seven electronic control systems. Featuring two modes, the Brake Control (BC) system analyses data, such as lean angle and slipping acceleration and modulates hydraulic brake pressure, to prevent wheel lock ups.

    Engine Brake Management (EBM) system

    Control is everything when you're on the road or track, and the Engine Brake Management (EBM) system allows you to adjust engine braking force. Using data from various sensors, the EBM adjusts throttle opening, ignition timing and fuel injection volume to give you a choice of three engine braking modes to suit different riding situations.

    Aggressive face with LED headlights

    The aggressive face of the R1 World GP 60th Anniversary features LED headlights that project a sharp and menacing look. And the M1-style cowling is also fitted with compact position lights that reinforce the bike's street presence and underline its pure race-bred design.

    Ride-by-wire APSG throttle

    The Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle (YCC-T) is activated by a high-tech twistgrip assembly that gives a natural feeling for precise control. Featuring a spring, slider and gear that give a smooth and progressive feel, the lightweight ride-by-wire APSG (Accelerator Position Sensor Grip) twistgrip gives instant throttle response.

    Launch Control (LCS) system

    By using data from a wide range of sensors, the R1 World GP 60th Anniversary's Launch Control System (LCS) gives you a high level of control during racing starts. For the fastest and most aggressive launches, LCS1 mode is programmed to activate at 9000 rpm with a throttle opening of 41 degrees.

    High-friction brake pads

    The R1 World GP 60th Anniversary’s dual 320 mm front discs with monobloc calipers are renowned for their remarkable braking feel and performance. And the brake pads are equipped with a high-friction material that delivers powerful stopping, allowing you to explore the full potential of this legendary supersport.

    Bridgestone Battlax RS11 tyres

    Whether you're accelerating aggressively, braking hard or banking over at full lean angle, you need to have total confidence in your tyres. Featuring a race-developed pattern together with a special compound, the Bridgestone Battlax Racing Street RS11 tyres – with a 190-section rear – give you the highest levels of traction combined with outstanding feel.
