YZF-R1 is Yamaha’s fastest, quickest and most powerful Superbike ever. The design is inspired by Yamaha’s MotoGP race bike YZR-M1 with an air-intake at the middle of the front fairing. The same goes for the engine, the inline 4 unit which is also a direct lift from M1’s engine architecture. It comes with a plethora of technology other than the now-common stuff like ABS and traction control. It features an IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) which continuously studies motorcycle’s angle to help other the ABS and traction control work well even while on lean. It also assists other rider aides like wheelie control, slide control etc.
