    Default Yamaha launches its all-new model of YZF-R1 in India

    Yamaha India has launched all-new model of its import bike YZF-R1 in a bid to strengthen its superbike segment in the Indian market.

    The new YZF-R1 model has been planned and developed as a flagship model of the racing circuit with pure MotoGP blood. The Yamaha YZF-R1 is available in 2 colours and is priced at Rs. 2,073,074 (ex-showroom, Delhi). This model will be imported as a Completely Built Unit (CBU) by India Yamaha Motor Pvt. Ltd. (IYM).

    The YZF-R1 is powered by a 998 cc, cross-plane, 4-cylinder, 4-valve engine that develops 200 hp - without ram air pressurization. Derived from YZR-M1 cross plane technology, its cross plane crankshaft gives an uneven 270° - 180° - 90° - 180° firing sequence for high levels of linear torque with outstanding traction. The compact chassis features a magnesium rear frame and long swingarm for outstanding handling along with developed suspension and magnesium wheels. Its high tech electronic control technology – including its new Quick Shift System (QSS) offers more precise control.

    To achieve optimal performance the engine uses a high compression 01:01 PM cylinder head featuring a pent roof combustion chamber with large diameter intake and exhaust valves. And for instant response with high power and strong linear torque, the YZF-R1 is equipped with titanium con rods and forged aluminium pistons.

    For optimal intake efficiency, a YZR-M1 type central air inlet feeds a large capacity 10.5-liter airbox. Fresh air is force fed into the electronically activated Yamaha Chip Controlled Intake (YCC-I) funnels that adjust their length to match engine rpm for optimum power characteristics, to give high levels of usable performance.

    For peak power and strong linear torque, the cross-plane engine is equipped with a lightweight 4-2-1 exhaust system. A servomotor controlled exhaust valve adjusts gas flow for enhanced response and stronger engine output, while the compact midship muffler contributes towards mass centralization and emits a unique growl.

    The aluminium Delta-box frame features a long upward-truss type swing arm and magnesium rear frame, underlining the YZF-R1's strong race bike heritage. The short 1405 mm wheelbase chassis and the YZF-R1's low wet weight of just 199 kg give the YZF-R1 a high level of agility and responsiveness for an outstanding race and track performance. With its central forced air intake, high screen and low headlight position, the YZF-R1's aerodynamic front cowl has an unmistakable YZR-M1 type race bike silhouette. Compact LED headlights on either side of the air intake emphasize the race-ready look, while twin LED running lights to give this superbike a truly unique face.

    Updated features:

    New Quick Shift System (QSS)

    The new QSS on the YZF-R1 features downshifting capability as well as allows full-throttle clutch-less upshifting. On downshifts, the ECU matches engine speed on each downshift for instantaneous gear changes with minimal chassis disruption.

    New Lift Control System (LIF)

    The YZF-R1’s new Lift Control System is now updated with more progressive mapping.

    Commenting on the launch of the new YZF-R1, Mr Roy Kurian, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Yamaha Motor India Sales Pvt. Ltd. said “The new YZF-R1 model will strengthen Yamaha in its superbike segment in Indian market. It inherits its technology from Yamaha’s racing machine YZR-M1. This model also highlights Yamaha’s improved aerodynamics which posts it closer to the MotoGP attributes, and which is a rare potential available in today’s market. Yamaha plans to increase its market share in Supersports segment as the new YZF-R1 is expected to attract the younger racing enthusiasts.”
