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.
