Yamaha introduces an uprated YZF-R1 featuring a range of important MotoGP inspired engine and chassis changes that are designed to elevate the performance and enjoyment of this unique race-proven motorcycle to another level.
On the road or track the R1 rewards the rider like no other large-capacity supersport machine, and for even more highly purified excitement the R1 is equipped with an advanced Traction Control System (TCS) for wider ranging controllability in a variety of conditions.
The feeling of total confidence in your machine’s abilities is one of the most important qualities that any bike can offer, and the new TCS inspires a high level of trust in the new R1’s roadholding performance. By monitoring and controlling rear wheel spin, the new TCS creates a special bond between the rider and machine, enabling the owner to exploit the enormous potential of this outstanding motorcycle.
