The future is here at Blackwood Yamaha..... 2015 YAMAHA YZF-R1  



A compact and new inline 4-cylinder 4-valve crossplane engine develops 200PS without the use of ram air

induction, and delivers a strong pulse of linear torque for outstanding running performance - while the

new short wheelbase chassis benefits from weight reducing features such as a magnesium subframe and

magnesium wheels in order to achieve a wet weight of only 199kg - with a dry weight of 179kg. In isolation,

these highly impressive figures of 200PS and 199kg show the outstanding racetrack potential of the new R1,

but it is the widespread use of advanced electronic control technology that genuinely underlines the R1’s

positioning as the next generation superbike.


The application of cutting edge MotoGP-derived electronic control technology represents a major leap

forward in superbike design, and sets the new YZF-R1 apart from its peers. By monitoring every byte of data

coming in from multiple sensors in the engine and chassis, the new R1’s advanced electronics enable riders to

achieve the very highest levels of engine and chassis control.

Featuring the first ever 6-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) ever featured on a street-legal machine, the

new R1 represents the dawning of a new digital era where all riders can experience total 3D controllability.

Fully equipped with banking sensitive Traction Control, as well as Slide Control, Front Lift Control,

Quickshifter, Launch Control, ABS and a Unified Brake System – and much more – the next generation R1

introduces racers and track day riders to a new era of rider-adaptive performance. For the first time, all riders

are given the opportunity to get a taste of MotoGP winning YZR-M1 technology - as enjoyed by Factory

Riders Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo.

The game has changed forever. No longer is MotoGP technology the privilege of the few. Giving increased

control with added confidence, as well as quicker lap times and higher levels of rider/machine unity,

Yamaha’s vision of the future is here. We R1.
