Developed without compromise and constructed with the most sophisticated engine and chassis technology, the new YZF-R1 is the ultimate Yamaha supersport.
Equipped with an aggressive new M1-derived cowl, the more aerodynamic bodywork delivers ultimate performance. Next generation LED headlights and restyled LED position lights reinforce this bike's intimidating presence – and with the new Brake Control (BC) and Engine Brake Management (EBM) systems, you're in full control. Each of the seven adjustable electronic rider aids can be fine-tuned in seconds via the YRC system. And with uprated suspension, a highly refined EU5 engine and premium RS11 tyres, the YZF-R1 has just raised the bar to a new level.
Yamaha Motor Company won its first race just 10 days after the company was founded. And this burning desire to go racing continues to define Yamaha to this day, and it is what enables the company to create high performance supersport bikes like the latest YZF-R1.
