Honda redesigns its Gold Wing from the ground up for 2018
Featuring next-generation R-Series styling, sophisticated electronic control, supersport braking and suspension performance and a high-performance crossplane engine.
MotoGP®-Derived Crossplane Crankshaft Engine: The 998cc inline-four-cylinder engine features Yamahas exclusive crossplane crankshaft technology derived from Yamahas YZR-M1 MotoGP® race bike. Every aspect of this unique engine is built to thrill.
Digital Superbike Technology: The R1 features a cableless ride-by-wire Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle (YCC-T®) system that transforms the riders inputs into motion, with a full suite of IMU-powered electronic rider aids that bring new meaning to the term rider confidence.
Superbike Brakes & Tires: The YZF-R1 utilizes track-focused braking hardware, featuring potent 4-piston radial-mounted front calipers, stainless steel front brake lines, big 320mm front rotors with high-friction pads and a compact ABS unit. The Bridgestone® RS11 tires ensure true racetrack-ready traction with balanced road feel and handling.
Sharp, Sleek Styling: The YZF-R1 features beautifully integrated bodywork and sleek, stylish lines which create an unmistakably aggressive, aerodynamic profile.
Legendary R-Series Handling: Built around Yamahas refined Deltabox aluminum frame technology and mounting high-spec, fully-adjustable KYB® suspension, the YZF-R1 exemplifies over 20 years of chassis technology developed on racetracks around the world.
Next Level R-Series Evolution: In developing the R1, Yamaha engineers combined feedback gleaned from top-level riders and the worlds most challenging race circuits. Advanced electronic systems boost rider confidence and control while the engine, suspension, brakes and aerodynamics complete the package.
Cutting-Edge CP4® Engine: The R1s 998cc inline-four-cylinder engine features Yamahas exclusive crossplane crankshaft technology derived from Yamahas YZR-M1 MotoGP® race bike. By equalizing inertial forces at the crankshaft, the CP4 motor delivers a direct feeling of linear torque, giving the rider the ultimate connection between throttle grip and the rear wheel.
High-Output Engine Technology: Titanium connecting rods use Yamahas precision fracture-split method to ensure maximum reliability with minimal weight. Combined with titanium intake valves and forged pistons, these lightweight parts help achieve the CP4s high redline and over-rev capability. The cylinder block is also offset from the crankshaft, reducing friction loads on the pistons and bores.
High-Performance Intake System: The cylinder head, intake system, fuel injectors and airbox work together to enhance part-throttle performance. And by creating a smaller and shorter intake tract, new injectors are able to spray fuel directly against the intake valves for improved fuel atomization.
Refined Rocker-Arm Valvetrain: Compact rocker-arm valve actuation uses optimized geometry to allow for larger valve lift than conventional cam-driven systems, while using lower cam lobes and reduced spring pressure to reduce friction losses.
Titanium Exhaust System: The R1 is equipped with a muffler and heat shields 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 for optimal handling.
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 Clutch: Yamahas 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 R1s high-output motor.
