Yamaha YZF-R1

Yamaha introduced the YZF-R1 after reworking the Genesis engine to make it more compact by lifting the gearbox input shaft and allowing the gearbox output shaft to be positioned underneath it. Other automakers adopted the’stacked gearbox.’ The engine was made significantly shorter by compacting it, allowing the wheelbase to be lowered. Because of the improved center of gravity, the frame design was able to position the weight of the engine in the frame to help handling.

The swingarm could be lengthened without jeopardizing the entire wheelbase, which was just 1,385 mm (54.5 in). The engine was supplied gasoline by four 40 mm Keihin CV carburetors. It was outfitted with KYB upside-down 41 mm front forks and 300 mm semi-floating disk brakes. The instrument panel was electronic, and it had a self-diagnosis system and a digital speed readout. Yamaha’s Exhaust Ultimate Power Valve (EXUP) was employed in the exhaust system to manage the exhaust gas flow and enhance engine power generation at all rpm. This resulted in a high-powered, high-torque engine. The Yamaha YZF-R6 superbike was released in 1999 as the 600cc version of the R1.

Aside from paint and cosmetics, the 1999 R1 experienced very minimal alterations. A revised gear change connection was also included, as was an increase in the length of the gear change shaft. The reserve fuel tank capacity was lowered from 5.5 to 4.0 L (1.21 to 0.88 imp gal; 1.5 to 1.1 US gal), although the overall fuel tank capacity remained constant at 18 l (4.0 imp gal; 4.8 US gal).


Yamaha revealed a new generation of R1 motorcycles at the centenary EICMA motorcycle exhibition. It is comparable to MotoGP’s YZR M1 from 2005 until the present. Yamaha states that the wet weight is 199 kg (439 lb) The new bike boasts a sophisticated Traction Control (TCS) and Slide Control System (SCS), an antiwheelie Lift Control System (LIF), connected antilock brakes, a Launch Control System (LCS), a Quick Shift System (QSS), and adjustable power modes.

The Yamaha YZF-Slide R1’s Control System is the first of its kind on a production motorbike. Over 100 times per second, information is transmitted to the bike via a six-axis gyro (Inertial measuring unit) and other sensors. The throttle butterfly, as well as ignition and fuel cuts, are used to control power delivery. Shorter bore-to-stroke ratio, bigger airbox, finger-follower valve system, and fracture split titanium conrods are among the engine improvements. It has magnesium wheels as standard. A user-customizable thin-film display displays information to the rider.

The R1M is a higher-spec, limited-production model that differs from the standard model by having more expensive components such as electronic semi-active hlins suspension, carbon fiber bodywork, Yamaha’s Communication Control Unit (CCU), Y-TRAC data logging system, and stickier Bridgestone tires with larger rear 200/55-size. Starting in 2016, a lower-spec R1S will be available as a third variant.
