The R1 was developed from the very beginning with the philosophy of no compromise, and this pure and focused design philosophy is what makes this high-tech racing Yamaha model the most exciting Supersport motorcycle of our time.

R's history. It's your future.

All the advanced technologies used in the R1 have been developed using knowledge gained from Yamaha's participation in the highest level of races. The outstanding 998cc 4-cylinder EU5 cross plane technology engine has a direct blood relationship with the M1 unit, and the aerodynamic body has been developed directly from experience gained on the racetracks.

But above all, what makes this bike so special is the R1's incredibly smart electronics. Equipped with wired ride throttle, Launch Control System (LCS), Engine Brake Management (EBM), Brake Control (BC) and more, this bike is the ultimate Yamaha Supersport designed to take the lead on the road and on the track. Available in a sporty new bi-colour Icon Blue and dynamic Yamaha Black with a matte blue color scheme.
