R history. Your future.

Every piece of advanced technology on the R1 has been developed using the knowledge gained from Yamaha’s involvement in racing at the highest level. The remarkable 998cc 4-cylinder EU5 crossplane engine is a direct descendant of the M1 unit – while the aerodynamic bodywork comes straight the racetrack development.

But above all it’s the R1’s incredible array of smart electronics that make this bike so very special. Equipped with everything from a ride-by-wire throttle through to a Launch Control System (LCS), Engine Brake Management (EBM) as well as Brake Control (BC) and much more, this is the ultimate Yamaha supersport that is built to lead the way on the street and track. And it comes in a sporty new duo-tone Icon Blue with matt blue colour scheme, as well as the dynamic Yamaha Black option.

    Key Features

    Features Gallery
    • alt

      Aerodynamic M1-style bodywork

      The R1 looks ultra-sharp with its M1-style cowling and fully integrated fairing that give the bike an aggressive race-developed profile. By enabling you to tuck in close to the bike, this lightweight bodywork achieves the highest levels of aerodynamic efficiency for outstanding high-speed performance.

      High-efficiency crossplane engine

      A key feature of the R1's EU5 998cc engine is the crossplane crankshaft with its uneven 270°-180°-90°-180° firing sequence that delivers strong, linear torque. Featuring a high-efficiency intake system along with specially designed finger-follower rocker arms, this race-developed engine delivers remarkable high rpm performance.

      High quality finish with new duo-tone colouring

      The R1 is manufactured to the highest quality standards using lightweight materials including titanium and magnesium, making it a premium supersport motorcycle that commands the utmost respect and brings a genuine pride of ownership. And the new duo-tone Icon Blue colouring with matt blue detailing enhances that premium, sporty look. This is what R/World is all about.

      43mm KYB forks

      The R1 is equipped with high-specification 43mm KYB forks featuring laminated type damping valves. Together with the advanced rear shock this suspension system gives you a sensation of being connected directly to the road surface, making the R1 feel as if it is an extension of your body.

    • alt

      Brake Control (BC) System

      Technology is transforming the way we ride, and the R1 features no fewer than seven electronic control systems. Featuring two modes, the Brake Control (BC) system analyses data such as lean angle and slipping acceleration and modulates hydraulic brake pressure to prevent wheel lock ups.

    • alt

      Engine Brake Management (EBM) system

      Control is everything when you're on the street or track, and the 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.

    • alt

      Next generation LED headlights

      The race-bred M1-style cowling is fitted with LED headlights that project a sharp and menacing look. The aggressive face of the R1 also features compact position lights that reinforce the bike's street presence and underline its pure race-bred DNA and sophisticated design.

    • alt

      Ride-by-wire APSG throttle

      The Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle (YCC-T) is activated by a high-tech twistgrip assembly that gives a natural feeling for precise control. Featuring a spring, slider and gear that give a smooth and progressive feel, the lightweight ride-by-wire APSG (Accelerator Position Sensor Grip) twistgrip gives instant throttle response.

    • alt

      Launch Control (LCS) system

      By using data from a wide range of sensors, the R1's Launch Control System (LCS) gives you a high level of control during racing starts. For the fastest and most aggressive launches, LCS1 mode is programmed to activate at 9000rpm with a throttle opening of 41 degrees.

    • alt

      High friction brake pads

      The dual 320mm front discs with monobloc calipers are renowned for their remarkable braking feel and performance, and the R1 is equipped with a high friction pad material that delivers precise and powerful stopping – allowing you to explore the full potential of this legendary supersport.

    • alt

      Bridgestone Battlax RS11 tyres

      Whether you're accelerating aggressively, braking hard or banking over at full lean angle, you need to have total confidence in your tyres. Featuring a race-developed pattern together with a special compound, the Bridgestone Battlax Racing Street RS11 tyres – with a 200-section rear – give you the highest levels of traction combined with outstanding feel.

    • alt

      TFT instruments with EBM and BC

      Featuring indicators for the BC and EBM, the class-leading Thin Film Transistor (TFT) LCD display is one of the most sophisticated meter panels available, with a full colour screen showing a wide range of information in an easy to absorb format. When you want to adjust any of the electronic controls simply switch to the YRC screen and select your preferences.
