Yamaha YZF-R1

Yamaha‘s YZF-R1, or R1, is an open class sport bike, or superbike, motorcycle produced from 1998 to the present.


In late 2008, Yamaha announced that an all-new R1 will be introduced in 2009. The new R1 utilizes engine technology from the M1 MotoGP bike, thanks to its cross plane crankshaft. Each connecting rod is separated by 90° via crossplane technology, resulting in an irregular firing interval of 270°- 180°- 90°- 180°. The crossplane crankshaft was utilized on a production sportbike for the first time on the 2009 R1. The power delivery is equivalent to a 90° V4 with a 180° crank, such as the Honda VFR800, and very similar to the Yamaha V-Max, which has received accolades for its exhaust note. Yamaha claims the bike will have “two engines in one,” with the low-end power of a twin and the speed of an inline 4.

Throttle Control in D-Mode The 2009 model additionally has Valve Mapping, which allows the rider to choose between three distinct maps based on the rider’s surroundings. Each mode of operation alters the YCC-T characteristics, influencing how the R1 reacts to rider input. The first choice is Standard Mode, which offers performance in a variety of driving circumstances. The second mode is “A,” which gives the rider more power in the low to medium RPM range. The third mode is “B,” which is a toned-down version of the previous mode designed to improve throttle responsiveness in poor weather and heavy traffic. By pushing a forward mode button near the throttle, the rider activates D-Mode throttle control.

The R1’s overall handling was enhanced via improvements to the frame and suspension. A revised magnesium subframe was created for the 2009 R1 to save weight and aid in mass centralization. The rear shock absorber on the 2009 offers variable speed damping as well as an easily changeable pre-load through a screw adjustment. Unlike previous years’ models, the rear shock now connects beneath the swing arm through a separate connection. To improve overall handling and safety, Yamaha incorporated an electronic steering damper.

The front maintains the same conventional R1 shape, but the air intake location and headlight design have been altered for the 2009 model, using solely projector lamps and rerouting ram air tubes near to the lights to take use of the new-found design space within the nose cone.

When testing the 2010 model year on a tri-oval racetrack, Motorcyclist magazine recorded a 0 to 14 mi (0.00 to 0.40 km) timing of 10.02 seconds @ 144.23 mph (232.12 km/h) and fuel consumption of 25 mpg-US (9.4 L/100 km; 30 mpg-imp). The measured top speed was 176.7 mph (284.4 km/h), according to Motorcycle Consumer News.
