Featuring a MotoGP-developed 6-mode TCS (Traction Control System), the latest YZF-R1 is the most advanced supersport machine ever developed by Yamaha. Powered by a 998cc in-line 4-cylinder engine featuring an innovative crossplane crankshaft, the R1 kicks out high levels of linear torque which makes for superior traction. At the flick of a switch, R1 riders can now tune the bike’s performance characteristics for more exciting cornering on the road and reduced lap times on the circuit. A compact aluminium Deltabox chassis delivers precision handling and class-leading cornering – and for optimised high speed performance the latest R1 is equipped with a new front cowl.
