    Electronic Racing Suspension (ERS)

    The Electronic Racing Suspension (ERS) is the most sophisticated system ever developed by Öhlins for a production motorcycle. Its advanced software gives a higher degree of braking, acceleration and cornering support with improved front-end feel – and the interface makes suspension set-up quick and easy.

    Communication Control Unit (CCU)

    The Communication Control Unit (CCU) has a data logging function that allows you to record a wide range of running data, including lap times, speed, throttle position, GPS tracking, lean angle and more. It can also be used to communicate with the Yamaha Ride Control (YRC) system when viewing, downloading or changing the running modes.

    Lightweight carbon fairing

    One of the many exclusive features on the YZF-R1M is its carbon fairing, and in order to underline the bike's exclusivity, the graphics are made of ultra-light material visible on the fairing panels.

    YZR-M1 derived 200PS crossplane engine

    The YZF-R1M is powered by a 998cc crossplane 4 cylinder 4-valve engine that develops 200PS - without ram air pressurization. Derived from our winning YZR-M1 MotoGP bike, its crossplane crankshaft gives an uneven 270° - 180° - 90° - 180° firing sequence for high levels of linear torque.

    6-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU)

    The highly sophisticated 6-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) delivers precise running data to the new ECU – which activates the upgraded lift control sytem (LIF) as well as the MotoGP-derived banking angle sensitive rear wheel Slide Control System (SCS) and Traction Control System (TCS) for greater control and reduced lap times.

    Quickshift System (QSS)

    A high specification Quickshift System (QSS) offers clutchless upshifting and downshifting that helps to maintain chassis stability for faster lap times, and also reduces the physical and mental input required by the rider. Using the Yamaha Ride Control (YRC) function, YZF-R1M riders can also select their preferred QSS mode.

  • alt

    ABS with Unified Brake System

    The YZF-R1M's dual 320mm front discs and monoblock calipers - as well as the 220mm rear disc - are equipped with a sophisticated banking sensitive ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) as well as Yamaha's Unified Brake System that enable the rider to achieve high levels of controllability in different circuit or road situations.

    Compact Deltabox chassis

    The aluminium Deltabox frame features a long upward-truss type swingarm and magnesium rear frame, underlining the YZF-R1M's strong M1 race bike heritage. The short 1,405mm wheelbase chassis and the low wet weight of just 200kg give the YZF-R1M a high level of agility and responsiveness for outstanding race and track performance.

  • alt

    Magnesium wheels, aluminium fuel tank

    The YZF-R1M's 17-inch wheels are manufactured from magnesium in order to minimize unsprung weight for responsive suspension performance – and the beautifully crafted 17-litre fuel tank is made from aluminium.

  • alt

    ECU mapping and Lift Control (LIF)

    The YZF-R1M benefits from ECU mapping that enables the use of the downshift mode on the Quickshift System. LIF ensures improved control under acceleration, enabling you to concentrate fully on the track ahead, without the distraction created by unwanted front-end lift.

    Thin Film Transistor (TFT) LCD instrument panel

    The YZF-R1M's instrument panel is one of the most sophisticated units fitted to any motorcycle, and features a Thin Film Transistor (TFT) LCD panel. The multi function display shows a wide range of data is shown in full colour, making all the information easy to understand.
