MotoGP®-Derived Crossplane Crankshaft Superbike
The YZF-R1® features a lightweight and compact crossplane crankshaft, inline-four-cylinder, 998cc high output engine. Featuring titanium fracture-split connecting rods, an offset cylinder block and magnesium covers, the motor delivers extremely high horsepower and a strong pulse of linear torque for outstanding performance, all wrapped in aerodynamic MotoGP®-style bodywork.
Class-Leading Electronics Package
The YZF-R1 features the most advanced electronics package ever offered on a supersport machine, with a full suite of interrelated technologies that enable the rider to enjoy the fullest range of performance with greater comfort, control, and ease of operation than ever before.
The YZF-R1 pioneered the use of the first six-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) ever offered on a street-going motorcycle. The IMU consists of a gyro sensor that measures pitch, roll, and yaw, as well as an accelerometer that measures acceleration in the fore-aft, up- down, and right-left directions… all at a rate of 125 calculations per second. By calculating each signal, the IMU finds the precise vehicle position and movement, and communicates it to the ECU, enabling it to control the bike’s systems.
Digital Rider Aids
The YZF-R1 is fully equipped with banking-sensitive Traction Control and unified ABS, as well as Slide Control, Launch Control, and more. The Quick Shift System provides both up and downshifting ability, automatically matching engine speed on downshifts for rapid clutchless shifts in either direction. The Wheel Lift Control system smoothly intervenes for maximum forward drive.
Advanced aluminum Deltabox® frame uses the engine as a stressed member of the chassis and is designed to provide optimum longitudinal, lateral and torsional rigidity balance. Fully adjustable suspension front and rear provides exceptional road-holding and tuneability.
Cutting-Edge Crossplane Engine
The 998cc inline 4-cylinder, crossplane crankshaft engine features titanium fracture-split connecting rods, which are an industry first for a production motorcycle. The titanium alloy used to manufacture the connecting rods is around 60% lighter than steel, and this reduction in weight gives the R1 engine a responsive and potent character at high rpm. This stunning engine delivers extremely high horsepower and a strong pulse of linear torque.
Compact Stacked Transmission
A 6-speed transmission features close-ratio gearing to best match the high-revving engine. The transmission also stacks the input/output shafts to centralize mass and to keep the overall engine size shorter front-to-back, which optimizes engine placement in the frame for outstanding weight balance.
Advanced rocker-arm valve actuation uses the arm’s lever ratio to allow for larger valve lift while using lower cam lobes and reduced spring pressure, further boosting power.
Lightweight Engine Components
Lightweight magnesium covers and ultra-light aluminum fasteners are used across the engine to further reduce weight.
Titanium Exhaust System
The R1 is equipped with an exhaust system manufactured primarily from lightweight titanium. The compact midship muffler also centralizes mass low in the frame and as close to the center of the machine as possible, improving overall handling.
Yamaha’s assist and slipper clutch is used to give the rider more confident downshifts when entering corners aggressively, while still smoothly handling the torque of the R1’s high-output inline-four motor.
