Yamaha YZF-R1 Australia for Sale at Blacktown Yamaha in Kings Park, NSW | Specifications and Review Information
Equipped with an aggressive M1-derived cowl, the aerodynamic bodywork delivers ultimate performance. Next generation LED headlights and restyled LED position lights reinforce this bike's intimidating presence - and with Brake Control (BC) and Engine Brake Management (EBM) systems, you're in full control.
Each of the seven adjustable electronic rider aids can be fine-tuned in seconds via the YRC system. And with uprated suspension, a highly refined EU5 engine and premium RS11 tyres, the YZF-R1 has just raised the bar to a new level.
998CC CP4 Engine
Developed using M1 MotoGP technology, the 998cc engine features Bosch injectors that deliver a wide spray angle for increased efficiency. Specially designed finger-follower rocker arms and cam lobes give outstanding high rpm performance - and this EU5 crossplane engine also features a high efficiency lubrication system for optimum performance.
Redesigned bodywork contributes to higher-quality performance and a more comfortable rider fit. The new design creates a 5.3% increase in aerodynamic efficiency while reducing wind noise and pressure on the rider when in a tucked position, and improved comfort comes from smoother side sections where the rider's legs contact the bike.
BRAKE CONTROL SYSTEM
Technology is transforming the way we ride, and the latest YZF-R1 features no fewer than seven electronic control systems. Featuring two modes, the new Brake Control (BC) system analyses data such as lean angle and slipping acceleration and modulates hydraulic brake pressure to prevent wheel lock-ups.
ENGINE BRAKE MANAGEMENT
Control is everything when you're on the track, and the Engine Brake Management (EBM) system allows you to adjust engine braking force. Using data from various sensors, the EBM adjusts throttle opening, ignition timing and fuel injection volume to give you a choice of three engine braking modes to suit different riding situations.
The R1 is equipped with high-specification 43mm KYB forks featuring laminated type damping valves. Together with the advanced rear shock this suspension system gives you a sensation of being connected directly to the road surface, making the R1 feel as if it is an extension of your body.
ACCELERATOR POSITION SENSOR
The Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle (YCC-T) is activated by a high-tech twist grip assembly that gives a natural feeling for precise control. Featuring a spring, slider and gear that give a smooth and progressive feel, the lightweight ride-by-wire APSG (Accelerator Position Sensor Grip) twist grip gives instant throttle response.
Lightweight, compact LED twin headlights for both the low and high beam, combined with the body styling, creates a front face symbolising the next-generation of R-Series design.
QUICK SHIFT SYSTEM
The YZF-R1 also comes equipped with a new Quick Shift System that gives faster gear changing. This system instantly cancels drive torque when an upshift is detected - enabling full-throttle clutchless upshifts for outstanding acceleration through the close-ratio 6-speed transmission.
The 6-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) consists of a gyro sensor (angular velocity sensor) that constantly measures machine pitch, roll and yaw, and a G-sensor (accelerometer) that measures acceleration in the forward-backward, up-down and right-left directions. This technology makes possible the class-leading array of rider aids includes lean sensitive Traction Control System (TCS), Slide Control System (SCS) as well as a front wheel lift control system (LIF) and Brake Control system (BC).
