Yamaha YZF-R1. We R1

Developed using YZR-M1 MotoGP technology, this bike was born for the track. 200 hp, 199 kg and a 1405 mm wheelbase give an insight into its capabilities. But it's what you can't see that makes it so special.

The Inertial Measurement Unit constantly senses chassis motion in 3D, creating controllability over traction, slides, front wheel lift, braking and launches. And its updated Quickshift System (QSS) offers clutchless downshifting as well as upshifting. Yamaha YZF-R1. We R1.
