With an exclusive new colour scheme based on Yamaha's Assen TT-winning MotoGP bike, the WGP 50th Anniversary R1 celebrates Yamaha’s remarkable Grand Prix heritage. Featuring an innovative crossplane-crankshaft with an uneven firing interval, the R1 kicks out high levels of linear torque for superior traction. Using the MotoGP-developed TCS, R1 riders can now adjust the performance characteristics of the 998cc in-line 4-cylinder engine for more exciting cornering on the highway and reduced lap times on the circuit. A compact aluminium Deltabox chassis delivers precision handling – and for optimised high speed performance the latest R1 is equipped with a new front cowl.
