Product Description

For 2020 the R1 is equipped with the next generation of Yamaha’s unique 998cc inline four-cylinder crossplane crankshaft engine. Returning features include titanium fracture-split connecting rods and offset cylinders, while the cylinder head, fuel injectors, finger-follower rocker arms, and camshaft profiles are all new for 2020
• Redesigned bodywork creates a 5.3 percent increase in aerodynamic efficiency while reducing wind noise and pressure on the rider when in a tucked position. Comfort is increased with smoother side sections around the tank area. The 2020 R1M also receives a new carbon fibre tail cowl
• New lightweight, compact LED twin headlights for both the low and high beam, combined with the redesigned body styling to create a new front face symbolising the next-generation of R-Series design
• An all-new Accelerator Position Sensor with Grip (APSG) ride-by-wire system- featuring Yamaha’s Chip Controlled Throttle (YCC-T) – eliminates throttle cables and reduces weight while providing smoother throttle operation
• Yamaha’s six-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) continues to be the key feature of the electronics package. The system processes real-time vehicle attitude and wheel speed data for the new Brake Control (BC) technology that gives riders the choice of two intervention modes for enhanced braking choice. Riders can select a BC1 setting for optimal upright, straight-line braking, or a BC2 for enhanced braking into corners
• A new Engine Brake Management (EBM) system also allows the rider to select between three levels of engine braking force to suit their individual preference or riding situation on the road or track
Yamaha YZF-R1 and YZF-R1M have been further revised, making them sleeker and smarter
• New KYB fork legs on the YZF-R1 feature an upgraded internal shim stack,
while the KYB rear shock has revised internal settings

New features at a glance:
• Redesigned cylinder head, fuel injectors, finger-follower rocker arms, and
camshaft profiles
