Aerodynamic M1-style bodywork
The R1 looks sharper than ever with its 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.
High-efficiency crossplane engine
A key feature of the R1's 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 special designed finger-follower rocker arms, this race-developed engine delivers refined high rpm performance and is EU5 compliant.
Improved suspension performance
The latest model comes with uprated 43mm Kayaba forks that utilise laminated type damping valves. Together with rear shock settings this gives you a heightened feeling 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.
Engine Brake Management (EBM) system
Control is everything when you're on the 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.
Next generation LED headlights
The M1-style cowling is fitted with special designed LED headlights that sharpen the menacing looks of the latest model. The aggressive face of the R1 also features 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 enhanced rider/machine interaction. Featuring a spring, slider and gear that give a natural and progressive feel, the ride-by-wire APSG (Accelerator Position Sensor Grip) system reduces weight and gives instant throttle response.
Optimized Launch Control (LCS) system
By using data from a wide range of sensors, the 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 9000rpm with a throttle opening of 41 degrees.
High friction brake pads
The R1’s dual 320mm front discs with monobloc calipers are renowned for their remarkable braking feel and performance, and the latest R1 is now equipped with a high friction pad material that delivers even more powerful stopping, allowing you to explore the full potential of this legendary supersport.
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 special 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 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.
TFT instruments with EBM and BC
Featuring 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!
