Yamaha YZF-R1WGP

Featuring cutting-edge technology from Yamaha’s race-winning YZR-M1 MotoGP machine, the R1 is the ultimate race-bred supersport.

And to commemorate 60 years of Grand Prix racing, the outstanding R1 World GP 60th Anniversary is created. Finished in historic racing colours, including gold forks, gold wheels, Yamaha factory race-bike gold Tuning Fork emblems, black levers and special commemorative badging on the airbox cover, it’s the ultimate tribute to some of Yamaha’s most iconic racing bikes – and is sure to become a collector’s machine with riders who appreciate this special heritage.

Features

Refined CP4 Engine

Refined CP4 Engine

The YZF-R1 come equipped with the next generation of Yamaha’s unique 998cc inline four-cylinder crossplane crankshaft engine for refined performance. Returning features such the cylinder head, fuel injectors, finger-follower rocker arms, camshaft profiles, titanium fracture-split connecting rods and offset cylinders all contribute to a responsive and potent character.

Advanced Bodywork

Advanced Bodywork

Redesigned bodywork contributes to higher-quality performance and a more comfortable rider fit. The new design creates a 5.3% increase in aerodynamic efficiency while reducing wind noise and pressure on the rider when in a tucked position, and improved comfort comes from smoother side sections where the rider’s legs contact the bike.

Brake Control System

Brake Control 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.

Engine Brake Management

Engine Brake Management

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.

Enhanced Suspension

Enhanced Suspension

The YZF-R1 receives suspension performance enhancements courtesy of a new KYB front fork with a new internal shim stack design, and a KYB rear shock with revised internal settings. Together, the changes result in smoother suspension dampening paired with an improved feeling of contact and grip with the street or track surface.

Quick Shift System

Quick Shift System

The YZF-R1 also comes equipped with a new Quick Shift System that gives faster gear changing. This system instantly cancels drive torque when an upshift is detected - enabling full throttle clutchless upshifts for outstanding acceleration through the close ratio 6-speed transmission.

6-Axis IMU

6-Axis IMU

The 6-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) consists of a gyro sensor (angular velocity sensor) that constantly measures machine pitch, roll and yaw, and a G-sensor (accelerometer) that measures acceleration in the forward-backward, up-down and right-left directions. This technology makes possible the class-leading array of rider aids includes lean sensitive Traction Control System (TCS), Slide Control System (SCS) as well as a front wheel lift control system (LIF) and Brake Control system (BC).

Accelerator Position Sensor

Accelerator Position Sensor

An all-new Accelerator Position Sensor with Grip (APSG) ride-by-wire system- featuring Yamaha’s Chip Controlled Throttle (YCC-T) - eliminates throttle cables and reduces weight while providing smoother throttle operation.

LED Headlights

LED Headlights

New lightweight, compact LED twin headlights for both the low and high beam, combined with the redesigned body styling to create a new front face symbolising the next-generation of R-Series design.
