Featuring an iconic Yellow/Black colour scheme with retro speedblock graphics - and fitted with an Akrapovic muffler - this limited edition superbike pays homage to Yamaha's illustrious racing heritage.
Developed without compromise using YZR-M1 MotoGP technology, the R1 was born for the track. 200PS, 199kg and 1,405mm wheelbase give an insight into its capabilities. But it's what you can't see that makes this focused superbike so special.
Its central nervous system is a 6-axis Inertial Measurement Unit that constantly senses chassis motion in 3D, creating controllability over traction, slides, front wheel lift, braking and launches. Yamaha R1. We R1.
The YZF-R1 60th Anniversary depicted is equipped with genuine Yamaha accessories especially suitable for racing on a track. The accessories mounted are the Billet Racing Cover Kit R1 One and Two – intended to replace the rear view mirrors, passenger footrests and license plate holder.
