2010 Yamaha YZF-R1
YZF-R1 - Born from MotoGP -
The YZF-R1 is as close to a MotoGP motorcycle as you’ll
find on the road.
At the heart of this spectacular machine is a MotoGP-derived
short-stroke engine with crossplane crankshaft that
delivers uneven firing intervals. These convert to
a unique feel, offering brilliantly linear power delivery
and allowing the rider to find power like never before.
Yamaha’s racing expertise means the R1 also
delivers a wonderful traction-feel, using a short-wheelbase
and long swingarm frame that was created using lessons
learned in MotoGP. This is a high performance machine
with all the control you’ll ever need.
