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.

YZF-R1 Engine

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.

YZF-R1 Brakes

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.

YZF-R1 Air Intake

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.
