R1

Key Features

Features Gallery
  • alt

    Aerodynamic M1-style bodywork

    The R1 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

    A key feature of the R1's EU5 998cc engine is the crossplane crankshaft with its uneven 270°-180°-90°-180° firing sequence that delivers strong, linear torque. Featuring a high-efficiency intake system along with specially designed finger-follower rocker arms, this race-developed engine delivers remarkable high rpm performance.

    High-quality finish with new duo-tone colouring

    The R1 is manufactured to the highest quality standards using lightweight materials including titanium and magnesium, making it a premium supersport motorcycle that commands the utmost respect and brings a genuine pride of ownership. And the new duo-tone Icon Blue colouring with matte blue detailing enhances that premium, sporty look. This is what R/World is all about.

    43 mm KYB forks

    The R1 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 feel as if it is an extension of your body.

    Brake Control (BC) System

    Technology is transforming the way we ride, and the R1 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.

  • alt

    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.

  • alt

    Next generation LED headlights

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

  • alt

    Launch Control (LCS) system

    By using data from a wide range of sensors, the R1'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.

  • alt

    High-friction brake pads

    The dual 320 mm front discs with monobloc calipers are renowned for their remarkable braking feel and performance, and the R1 is equipped with a high friction pad material that delivers precise and 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 200-section rear – give you the highest levels of traction combined with outstanding feel.

  • alt

    TFT instruments with EBM and BC

    Featuring indicators for the BC and EBM, the class-leading Thin Film Transistor (TFT) LCD display is one of the most sophisticated meter panels available, with a full colour screen showing a wide range of information in an easy to absorb format. When you want to adjust any of the electronic controls, switch to the YRC screen and select your preferences.
