Uprated TFT instruments with EBM and BC
Featuring new indicators for the BC and EBM, the class-leading Thin Film Transistor 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 simply switch to the YRC screen and select your preferences!
Aerodynamic M1-style bodywork
The YZF-R1 looks sharper than ever with its new M1-style cowling and fully integrated fairing that give the bike a more aggressive race-developed profile. By enabling you to tuck in closer to the bike, this lightweight bodywork increases aerodynamic efficiency by over 5% for better high speed performance.
Latest 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 newly developed pattern and special compound, the Bridgestone Battlax Racing Street RS11 tyres give you the highest levels of traction combined with outstanding feel.
High quality finish
Developed using race-proven technology and manufactured using the most sophisticated components and lightweight materials including titanium and magnesium, the YZF-R1 is a high quality motorcycle that commands the utmost respect and engenders a genuine pride of ownership. This is what R-World is all about.
High-efficiency crossplane engine
A key feature of the YZF-R1's 998cc engine is the crossplane crankshaft with its uneven 270° - 180° - 90° - 180° firing sequence that delivers strong, linear torque. Featuring a new high-efficiency intake system along with newly designed finger-follower rocker arms, this race-developed engine delivers refined high rpm performance and is EU5 compliant.
New high friction brake pads
The YZF-R1’s dual 320mm front discs with monobloc calipers are renowned for their remarkable braking feel and performance, and the latest YZF-R1 is now equipped with a new high friction pad material that delivers even more powerful stopping, allowing you to explore the full potential of this legendary supersport.
New Engine Brake Management (EBM) system
Control is everything when you're on the track, and the new 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.
New Brake Control (BC) System
Technology is transforming the way we ride, and the latest YZF-R1 features no fewer than seven electronic control systems. Featuring two modes, the new Brake Control (BC) system analyses data such as lean angle and slipping acceleration and modulates hydraulic brake pressure to prevent wheel lock ups.
New ride-by-wire APSG throttle
The Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle (YCC-T) is activated by a new high-tech twistgrip assembly that gives enhanced rider/machine interaction. Featuring a spring, slider and gear that give a natural and progressive feel, the new ride-by-wire APSG (Accelerator Position Sensor Grip) system reduces weight and gives instant throttle response.
Next generation LED headlights
The new M1-style cowling is fitted with restyled LED headlights that sharpen the menacing looks of the latest model. The aggressive new face of the YZF-R1 also features new position lights that reinforce the bike's street presence and underline its pure race-bred design.
Optimised Launch Control (LCS) system
By using data from a wide range of sensors, the YZF-R1’s Launch Control System (LCS) gives you increased control during racing starts. For even faster launches the LCS1 mode has been modified to activate at 9000 rpm with a throttle opening of 41 degrees.
