R history. Your future.
Developed without compromise and constructed with the most sophisticated engine and chassis technology, the new R1 is the ultimate Yamaha supersport.
Equipped with an aggressive new M1-derived cowl, the more aerodynamic bodywork delivers ultimate performance. Next generation LED headlights and restyled LED position lights reinforce this bike’s intimidating presence – and with the new 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 R1 has just raised the bar to a new level.
