This exclusive machine is a special version of the incredible R1, and comes with even higher factory specification – enabling track riders to discover their true potential.
A six axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) offers control over traction, slides, front wheel lift, braking and launches. Its Communication Control Unit with GPS lets you access lap times and other running data on an Android-based tablet. And R1M’s Electronic Racing Suspension (ERS) delivers ultimate handling.
With its 200bhp crossplane engine, short wheelbase chassis, 3D control electronics and exclusive carbon bodywork, R1M delivers M1-derived factory-bike technology.
M1-DERIVED 200PS CROSSPLANE ENGINE
The R1 is powered by a 998cc crossplane 4 cylinder 4-valve engine that develops 200PS - without ram air pressurisation. Derived from our winning YZR-M1 MotoGP bike, its crossplane crankshaft gives an uneven 270° - 180° - 90° - 180° firing sequence for high levels of linear torque
HIGH-COMPRESSION CYLINDER HEAD
To achieve optimal performance the engine uses a high compression 01:01 PM cylinder head featuring a pent roof combustion chamber with large diameter intake and exhaust valves. And for instant response with high power and strong linear torque, the R1 is equipped with titanium con rods and forged aluminium pistons.
4-2-1 EXHAUST PIPE
A 4-2-1 exhaust pipe and mid-ship muffler are adopted to ensure good exhaust efficiency and to contribute to mass centralisation at the same time. To reduce weight, titanium is used in these exhaust pipes and the muffler
ABS AND UNIFIED BRAKE SYSTEM
Both an Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) and Yamaha’s Unified Brake System are adopted. With the Unified Brake System, operating the front brake also generates corresponding brake pressure at the rear brake. The distribution of braking force is based on input from the IMU regarding the machine’s attitude and banking angle at the time of brake application.
HIGH VOLUME AIR INTAKE
For optimal intake efficiency a YZR-M1-type central air inlet feeds a large capacity 10.5 litre airbox. Fresh air is force fed into the electronically activated Yamaha Chip Controlled Intake (YCC-I) funnels that adjust their length to match engine rpm for optimum power characteristics, to give high levels of useable performance
LIGHTWEIGHT CARBON BODYWORK
With its central forced air intake and high screen, the R1M's lightweight carbon bodywork has an unmistakable race bike silhouette. Compact new LED headlights are 'hidden' either side of the air intake to emphasize the race DNA, while twin LED position lights give this new superbike a truly unique face
HIGH LUMINANCE LED LIGHTS
An LED headlight and LED position lights are adopted for their advantages of low electricity consumption, light weight and high luminosity. When the ignition is turned on, the high-intensity LED position lights come on almost instantly. The straight-line, sharp illumination gives the R1 a distinctive and original frontal expression even in the dark.
ALUMINIUM 17-LITRE FUEL TANK
An aluminium fuel tank (17-litre capacity) designed to reduce weight and provide a wider range of riding position freedom has been adopted. The knee pocket area is deeply indented in a design well fitted for active riding.
ALUMINIUM DELTABOX FRAME
The aluminium Deltabox frame features a long upward-truss type swingarm and magnesium rear frame, underlining the R1's strong YZR-M1 racebike heritage. The short 1,405mm wheelbase chassis and the R1M's low wet weight of just 200kg give the YZF-R1 a high level of agility and responsiveness for outstanding race and track performance
ELECTRONIC RACING SUSPENSION (ERS)
The revised Electronic Racing Suspension (ERS) is the most sophisticated system ever developed by Öhlins for a production motorcycle. Its advanced new software gives a higher degree of braking, acceleration and cornering support with improved front-end feel – and a new interface makes suspension set-up quick and easy.
CAST MAGNESIUM WHEELS
To bring out the high performance of the lightweight body, the first cast magnesium wheels ever on a mass-production model are adopted.
