Aerodynamic M1-style bodywork
The YZF-R1 looks sharper than ever with its new M1-style cowling and fully integrated fairing that give the bike a more aggressive race-developed profile. By enabling you to tuck in closer to the bike, this lightweight bodywork increases aerodynamic e ciency by over 5% for better high speed performance.
High-effciency crossplane engine
A key feature of the YZF-R1's 998cc engine is the crossplane crankshaft with its uneven 270° - 180° - 90° - 180° ring sequence that delivers strong, linear torque. Featuring a new high-efficiency intake system along with newly designed finger-follower rocker arms, this race-developed engine delivers re ned high rpm performance and is EU5 compliant.
Improved suspension performance
The latest model comes with uprated 43mm Kayaba forks that utilise new laminated type damping valves. Together with revised rear shock settings this gives you a heightened feeling of being connected directly to the road surface, making the YZF-R1 feel as if it is an extension of your body.
New Brake Control (BC) System
Technology is transforming the way we ride, and the latest YZF-R1 features no fewer than seven electronic control systems. Featuring two modes, the new Brake Control (BC) system analyses data such as lean angle and slipping acceleration and modulates hydraulic brake pressure to prevent wheel lock ups.
New Engine Brake Management (EBM) system
Control is everything when you're on the track, and the new Engine Brake Management (EBM) system allows you to adjust engine braking force. Using data from various sensors, the EBM adjusts throttle opening, ignition timing and fuel injection volume to give you a choice of three engine braking modes to suit different riding situations.
Next generation LED headlights
The new M1-style cowling is fitted with restyled LED headlights that sharpen the menacing looks of the latest model. The aggressive new face of the YZF-R1 also features new position lights that reinforce the bike's street presence and underline its pure race-bred design.
