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.
Producing 200PS, the R1\’s new 998cc inline 4- cylinder 4-valve engine is our most powerful production bike. And with its M1-derived crossplane technology, this next generation superbike pushes out strong linear torque with outstanding traction.
The short wheelbase Deltabox chassis features a magnesium rear frame and long swingarm for outstanding handling on the track. And race developed suspension and magnesium wheels show that this bike is a serious contender.
But what really gives you the edge is the R1\’s high tech electronic control technology. By offering precise control, every rider has the chance to reveal their true potential.
Offered in limited quantities is the YZF-R1M, a special version of the all new R1, which comes with even higher factory specification including a polished aluminium fuel tank, carbon fibre body parts, Öhlins electronically adjustable suspension, polished swingarm and communication control unit (CCU).
