Yamaha YZF-R1. We R1

Packed with MotoGP YZR-M1 technology, a crossplane engine, short wheelbase chassis and high-tech electronics, the R1 is ready to connect to your body and take your riding to a new level.

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.
