Ex-showroom Price (New Delhi)

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.

  • Yamaha YZF-R1 Design and Build

    Yamaha YZF-R1

    YZF-R1 design takes cues from Yamaha’s MotoGP race bike YZR-M1 with an air-intake at the lower end of the front fairing. The build quality is good, and the R1 looks substantial and guarantees a great road presence especially due to the twin LED headlights.

  • Yamaha YZF-R1 Riding Ergonomics

    Yamaha YZF-R1

    YZF-R1 is one of the most aggressive looking superbikes in the market today. It puts the rider in a completely sports riding stance with proper forward lean and rear-set foot-pegs. The rider sits exactly as he would on a race bike putting the weight of his upper body on both arms. Clearly, the ergonomics are suited mostly for racing rather than daily riding or commuting or long rides.

  • Yamaha YZF-R1 Engine

    Yamaha YZF-R1

    The 998cc liquid-cooled DOHC 4-valve per cylinder engine has an inline-4 architecture with the crossplane layout. It churns out 200 PS of power at 13,500 rpm and 112.4 Nm of torque at 11,500 rpm. These numbers result in the R1 being one of the quickest accelerating motorcycles.

  • Yamaha YZF-R1 Transmission

    Yamaha YZF-R1

    YZF-R1 comes with 6-speed transmission. It is one of the best gearboxes in the market with ultra smooth shifts to help utilize all of the massive power from the engine. The clutch works in complete unison and on the whole delivers a race bike-like experience.

  • Yamaha YZF-R1 Braking and Safety

    YZF-R1 comes with one of the best braking packages in its class with a pair of 320 mm disc brakes at the front which is complemented by a single 220 mm one at the rear. The package gets cornering ABS and traction control which means that these two technologies work even when the motorcycle is leaning.

  • Yamaha YZF-R1 Mileage

    Superbikes are not known for their fuel efficiency and R1 is no exception. However, modern technologies and innovations allow engineers to extract the best possible fuel economy from the engine. The R1 has a 17-litre fuel tank.
