Yamaha R1 Features



The newly designed instrumentation includes everything a rider wants to know, including gear postion.

The new R1 has only two projector-type bulbs mounted closer to the nose of the bike. This positions ram air duct closer in for a more compact, smooth look. The innovative new projector headlight design features a solenoid coil type high/low beam mechanism. First time this system has been used on a production bike.


Suspension inludes first SOQI front forks which use one of the tricks developed for our winning MotoGP bikes: independent damping. The left fork handles compression damping and the right side handles rebound damping. And the rear shock adopts new linkage for optimum suspension characteristics.


Yamaha Chip Controlled Intake is a variable intake system that broadens the spread of power. The fuel injection system provides optimum air/fuel mixtures for maximum power and smooth throttle response.


(Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle) is a MotoGP inspired technology used to deliver instant electronic throttle response.



Slipper-type back torque-limiting clutch greatly facilitates braking/downshifting from high speed.


Rear tyre for best traction feeling.
