Flagship model for track conquering performance

Yamaha Motor will launch the supersport "YZF-R1M" and "YZF-R1" powered by a liquid-cooled, 4-stroke, DOHC, in-line 4-cylinder, 4-valve, 997cm3 engine with a cross-plane crankshaft on August 20.

The YZF-R1 is the flagship model of the company's supersport motorcycle lineup, which has been a driving force in the supersport market since it was first launched in 1998, and was developed with the aim of achieving circuit-conquering performance by applying the best of Yamaha Motor's technology.

The main features are
1) Cross-plane engine with refined track performance
2) YCC-T (electronically controlled throttle) incorporating the APSG (accelerator position sensor grip)
3) Front and rear suspensions are set to deliver a "sense of touch" to the road.
4) Electronic control system with the addition of EBM (Engine Brake Management) and BC (Brake Control), all of which have been revised.
5) Newly designed cowling with enhanced aerodynamic characteristics
6) LED dual headlamps and new position lamps that assert the next generation "R" design

The higher-end model, the YZF-R1M, features an Öhlins electronically controlled suspension, a buffed aluminum tank and rear arms, as well as a new lightweight carbon cowl.

Main features

Cross-plane engine with refined track performance

I) Combustion system to improve "linearity and torque"

The engine, which delivers a maximum output of 200 PS, meets environmental regulations, but is also a cross-plane " The goal is to improve "linearity and torque feeling". Newly designed cylinder head and diagonal flow to bring the throttle valve and combustion chamber closer together. injectors for injection. These optimize the combustion speed in the low to medium rpm range, and the throttle is opened from the beginning. The linearity of the engine has been improved and the engine characteristics with a sense of torque.
In addition, the secondary injectors are injected at high RPM for better combustion.

II) Highly reliable finger rocker arm

Finger rocker arm type valve system is adopted. The arm shape has been redesigned to improve the valve behavior at high RPM. This also raises the bar for even higher RPMs in the race circuit.

III) Lubrication system that contributes to reducing horsepower loss

To prevent a drop in oil pressure at high RPM and reduce horsepower loss due to oil stirring, each Oil is supplied to the large end of the connecting rods using the "center oiling method". Oil supply to the connecting rods, crank journal, and piston cooler is optimized to achieve a high Horsepower loss due to oil agitation in the crankcase is reduced in the rpm range.

YCC-T (electronically controlled throttle) incorporating APSG (accelerator position sensor grip)

The YCC-T electronically controls the throttle valve drive and transmits the accelerator operation through the throttle cable. The APSG is not a mechanical type of transmitter. The APSG is not a mechanical type, but an electronic type.

Front and rear suspensions are designed to provide a "sense of touch" that is easy to transmit

The front and rear suspension settings have been optimized to match the characteristics of the engine. The front suspension provides a ground contact feeling to the rider, which helps to convey the feeling of gripping the road surface to the rider. It contributes to direct and straightforward handling and a sense of lightness.

The YZF-R1M is equipped with ERS (Electronic Stability Control System), which provides integrated control of the front and rear suspension. Electronic Racing Suspension), as well as the gas front suspension A cylinder is installed. The pressurization by gas suppresses cavitation and contributes to the stability of damping force.

Electronic control system with the addition of EBM (Engine Brake Management) and BC (Brake Control)

The entire electronic control system on the previous model has been reworked to meet the rider's preferences and riding conditions. EBM (Engine Brake Management) and BC (Brake Control) to support driving. Two additional control systems are added to the system. The individual control systems work in conjunction with each other to assist in the riding process and help the machine reach its potential more efficiently. Pull out. In addition, the TFT LCD 4.2-inch meter display has been modified to match the control system. This allows riders to reflect their preferences, such as selecting the YRC (Yamaha Ride Control) mode.

Newly designed cowling with enhanced aerodynamic characteristics

Excellent aerodynamics are achieved through the use of a cowl shape. Aerodynamic characteristics are enhanced by controlling the flow of airflow to keep the rider in the cowl with his upper body in a prone position.

LED dual headlamps and new position lamps that assert the next generation "R" design

New lightweight and compact LED dual headlamps with both low and high beams Irradiation characteristics have been optimized, and the irradiability (range) has been greatly improved, especially at low beam. In addition, the new design of the position lamp with a thick-walled lens has significantly improved the appearance quality, making it possible to achieve the highest quality of illumination.
