Along with minor modifications to the engine and side fairing, the new Yamaha YZF R1 receives stylistic updates. The side fairing on this bike now matches the body rather than the previous black panel, and the central cowl has been extended.
The projected eyes are complemented by dual LED brows, enhancing the bike’s premium appearance. The aerodynamic windscreen of the sports-inspired design is extremely similar to the M1 from the MotoGP.
The rear magnesium frame and the longer swingarm maintain the bike’s body frame. In this iteration, the wheelbase and chassis weight is unaltered. The TFT display is rectangular in design.
The camshaft profile, finger-follower rocker arms, cylinder head, and fuel injectors have all been updated, even though the engine is still the same. With a big 20-litre capacity, it is nevertheless slender and stylish.
The bike’s overall aesthetic is improved, and air drag is reduced by the small exhaust pipe and the projected tail section.
Yamaha YZF R1 will be available in 2 different colours schemes:
Yamaha YZF R1 will be available in single variant:
The bike’s 998cc cross-plane four-cylinder motor generates a staggering power of 197hp at 13,500 rpm and 112.4Nm of torque at 11,500 rpm and is housed in a Yamaha Deltabox chassis.
A relatively lightweight titanium exhaust is used with the engine to provide a more powerful linear engine thrust. The exhaust vault’s servo motor regulates the gas flow, which is essential for the engine’s improved response and output.
The bike’s high-compression cylinder helps it function at its best. Additionally, the titanium con-rods and aluminium pistons result in more power and torque, which enhances the engine’s overall seamlessness and smoothness.
The titanium frame in Yamaha YZF R1 reduces vibration faster and enhances riding efficiency. When the bike is turned on, the TFT’s rectangle display illuminates. The revolution counters, speedometer, trip metre, odometer, engine-heat level, turn indicators, and clock are all shown on this console.
High-end switchgear provides extra safety features like traction control, anti-wheelie, unified braking, slide control, and inertial measurement.
The YZF R1 has a stunning full-colour thin-film transistor (TFT) metre that displays the fore/aft G-force and front brake pressure to provide the rider with immediate input from the vehicle.
It has a street mode and a track mode, the latter of which concentrates on performance data, including speed, gear position, lap timer, YRC settings, a zoomed-in view of the tachometer in the upper rpm range, and YRC settings (including EBM and BC systems).
Due to the lightweight and small size of LED headlights, the front cowling can get designed to be more streamlined while maintaining outstanding visibility. LED front turn signals are built into the mirrors for better aerodynamics, and the LED tail light is fashionable and extremely visible.
This engine has a six-speed transmission and an exhaust system made of titanium.
The Yamaha YZF-R1 rides on 43mm inverted front forks along with a rear monoshock sourced from KYB. Both suspension parts are fully-adjustable.
The Yamaha motors provide a dual channel ABS with 320mm disc brakes in the front wheel and 220mm disc brakes in the rear wheel.
