The new engine feels and sounds smoother than ever, emittting an unforgettable exhaust note. Pushing out 182 PS and 115.5 Nm of torque, this MotoGP-inspired engine is the most advanced powerplant ever seen on a Yamaha supersport bike.

And for the ultimate in feel and controllability, the new R1 runs with an all-new Deltabox chassis offering an idealised rigidity balance. New generation MotoGP inspired R1 998cc crossplane crankshaft engine with uneven firing YCC-T and YCC-I for optimal performance 182 PS at 12,500 rpm, 115.5 Nm at 10,000 rpm Lightweight Deltabox frame for precise handling Fully adjustable front and rear suspension Motorcycles made for winning Yamaha motorcycles are tested in world championship competition by the world’s greatest riders. The MotoGP-derived YZF-R1 machine has dominated arguably the most successful first year of racing for a litre sports bike. The R1 can claim the 2009 World Endurance Championship title and countless race wins in World Superbike and national Superbike championships across Europe. If you want to turn your R1 into a full-on racetrack machine, Yamaha Motor Engineering’s YEC range are the only officially approved racing kit parts for R-Series bikes. New generation MotoGP inspired R1 The YZF-R1 has been a supersport legend for more then 10 years. The new YZF-R1 is the first production motorcycle with a crossplane crankshaft, technology pioneered in MotoGP racing. Yamaha’s racing expertise means the R1 also delivers a wonderful traction-feel, using a short-wheelbase and long swingarm frame developed from lessons learned in MotoGP. Crossplane crankshaft with uneven firing interval The R1’s revolutionary crossplane crankshaft with a MotoGP-style firing interval, transforms the feeling of riding an inline-four supersport bike. The crossplane crankshaft produces `combustion’ torque, rather than `inertial’ torque, so the rider can `feel’ the rear tyre. The engine feels and sounds smoother, with an unforgettable, growling exhaust note. YCC-T and YCC-I for optimal performance The R1’s cutting-edge electronics perfectly complement the innovative engine. YCC-I (Yamaha Chip-Controlled Intake) adjusts the length of the four intake funnels for perfect intake performance across the rpm range. YCC-T (Yamaha Chip-Controlled Throttle) controls the throttle-valve opening for instantly responsive and smooth power. Lightweight Deltabox frame for precise cornering The short wheelbase combined with the rigid lightweight die-cast aluminium Deltabox frame and long swingarm provides maximum traction feel, excellent drive force and superbly controllable steering. Fully adjustable front and rear suspension Front and rear suspension is multiadjustable, for riding style and for road/ track conditions. The 43 mm front fork features independent left/right cushioning that offers improved damping performance and enables easier settings adjustment, according to rider preference. Sculptured bodywork The new R1’s sculptured bodywork expresses the machine’s radical, mass centralized design: this is a densely packaged motorcycle that produces awesomely concentrated performance. From its Cobra-eyed front end all the way to its short, upswept mufflers and 190/55R rear tyre, the R1 proves the designer’s maxim: function is beauty. www.yamaha-motor-europe.com YZF-R1 ENGINE Type Displacement Bore and stroke Compression ratio Max.
