Yamaha YZF R1 Highlights
21 February 2018: The 2018 Yamaha YZF R1 arrives in India with pure MotoGP blood and a few upgrades to make it a stronger contender in the segment. The supersport motorcycle features a crossplane engine, shorter wheelbase and some of the high-tech electronics that’ll surely excite you to the core. The two new technological upgrades it gets include the updated Quick Shift System (QSS) and refined Wheel Lift Control (LIF). The former offers clutch-free downshifting as well as upshifting while the latter is capable of improving forward drive when the system intervenes. Adding to its tech table, there are features like anti-wheelie control, slide control, unified braking system, launch control and traction control. The fitted inline 4-cylinder, crossplane crankshaft 998cc engine delivers high power and a series of strong torque. The bike produces a whopping power output of 197bhp at 13,500rpm and a peak torque of 112.4Nm at 11,500rpm. The sports bike sits on the compact aluminium Deltabox frame and rides on the 43mm inverted front forks and fully-adjustable rear mono shock absorbers. On the braking front, it gets ABS and Unified Braking System for maximum braking performance. The bike’s weight has been kept in check by including magnesium wheels and aluminium tank. It weighs just 199Kg now. The bike’s compact design, improved aerodynamics and overall design language make it look more aggressive and lively than ever. There are two striking color schemes on offer including Yamaha Blue and Tech Black. The new Yamaha YZF R1 is priced at Rs 22.72 Lakh (On road, Delhi) and will be imported as a Completely Built Unit (CBU) in India. In the Indian market, the Yamaha YZF R1 will lock horns with the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R, the Honda CBR1000R, the Suzuki GSX-R1000 and the BMW S1000RR.

Yamaha YZF R1 Expert Review
The new YZF R1 is the flagship model of Yamaha in India. The bike has been developed on the racing DNA offering brute power of nearly 200bhp and a strong linear torque. The bike’s design is similar to what we have seen on the predecessor, with the front cowl giving it an ideal race bike silhouette, centrally-placed air intakes, low headlight position and all-LED lighting. The sharp bodywork over the sides looks tempting while the aggressive front makes it for its stunning appeal. On the engine front, titanium alloy has been used to manufacture the connecting rods which make them 60% lighter than the steel- making the bike more responsive even at high rpms. A lightweight titanium exhaust system is in place for extracting linear torque. The aluminium Deltabox lightweight frame accounts for the bike’s high level of agility and responsiveness. The fitted suspension assembly features 43mm inverted front forks and fully-adjustable rear mono shock absorbers. On the braking front, it gets ABS and Unified Braking System for maximum braking performance. However, its electronics package is what makes it standout. The package includes Quick Shift System (QSS), Wheel Lift Control (LIF), Slide Control System (SCS), Traction Control System (TCS), Power Delivery Mode (PWR), Launch Control System (LCS), ride-by-wire Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle (YCC-T) system and the Yamaha’s Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) which after communicating with the ECU activates all the technologies in the Yamaha Ride Control (YRC). The Yamaha’s exclusive Communication Control Unit (CCU) is also available as an option that allows riders to communicate with the bike via Wi-Fi through Yamaha’s exclusive Y-TRAC smartphone and tablet app. The running data can thus be recorded via a data logger, downloaded to the app (Android and iOS) and analyzed to make necessary changes to the settings.
Design and Features
The Yamaha YZF R1 sports a sharp design language that’s depicted by its unique face. It features a centrally-placed air intake column that has compact LED headlight units on either side with twin LED DRLs as well. The front is aggressive and looks race ready. There is a high screen, low headlight position, large fuel tank with a sculpted look for the rider to sit comfortably and manoeuvre it with ease. The fully-faired look of the bike is pleasing to watch. The sharp edges and cuts along with its panels’ fits and finishes look at par. There is a full-color, thin-film transistor (TFT) meter with basic and advanced readings for the rider to gain from the machine. The front brake pressure and fore/aft G-force readouts are even more useful for the rider to learn from the sports roadster. It features both street mode and a track mode that focuses on performance information like the tachometer for rpm range, a lap timer, gear position indicator, speed and YRC settings. There are new colors for buyers to consider including Yamaha Blue and Tech Black of which the former please us the more. The lightweight titanium exhaust and midship muffler not only add ticks to the performance meter but also enhance the overall appeal of the sports bike. The bike has it all to turn heads as it cruises along the road.
Dimensionally, it measures 2055mm long, 691mm wide and 1150mm high. The ground clearance of the bike sits at 130mm and the wheelbase at 1404mm.
Braking and Handling
Built on the Deltabox frame, Yamaha YZF R1 rides on the 43mm inverted front forks and fully-adjustable rear mono shock absorbers. The aluminium Deltabox lightweight frame accounts for the bike’s high level of agility and responsiveness. On the braking front, there is a dual 320mm hydraulic disc at the front and 220mm disc at the rear, accompanied by features like ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) and Unified Braking System. The bike sports 17-inch alloy wheels with tubeless tyres of specification 120/70 and 190/55 at the front and rear respectively.
Safety and Features
Taking care of the safety duties are the discs in combination with ABS and Unified Braking System that give it excellent stopping power and distribute the brake force evenly. Further, there is an electronic package with life-saving features like Quick Shift System (QSS), Wheel Lift Control (LIF), Slide Control System (SCS), Traction Control System (TCS), Power Delivery Mode (PWR) and Launch Control System (LCS).
