Since the original YZF-R1 was released into an awe-struck marketplace, Yamaha’s flagship 1000cc model has established a reputation as being one of the most innovative and exciting motorcycles in the large-capacity supersport class.
Featuring an all-new 998cc engine whose design, feel and character has been influenced by the championship winning M1, the new high-tech R1 powerplant is closely linked to our Moto GP bike. In fact the R1 engine has benefited from more Moto GP developed technology than any other in its long and prestigious history.
In addition, the completely redesigned aluminium Deltabox chassis and aggressive new styling, give the new-generation YZF-R1 a radical new look and bring innovative technology to the class. In the same way that the original YZF-R1 threw the rule book out of the window, this revolutionary new model sets a new benchmark for the super-competitive 1000cc supersport category.
