The Yamaha YZF -R1M Race Bike Review and Specs

Yamaha YZF -R1M Specs and Price - The Yamaha YZF-R1M race bike is a unique version of the all new R1, and brings higher manufacturing plant specification, empowering each racer and track rider to find their actual potential. The Yamaha YZF-R1M features an exceedingly progressed Öhlins Electronic Racing Suspension. The Suspension Control Unit gets information from the Inertial Measurement Unit, which imparts vehicle speed, attitude, incline point, increasing speed and brake weight, then conforms the front and rear pressure and additionally rebound damping for optimum suspension performance.

The Yamaha YZF -R1M Race Bike Review and Specs

The Yahama YZF-R1M is a generation Superbike that is as close as you can get to a street-legal M1 MotoGP® bicycle, viably obscuring the line between the two. Featuring a first ever for a generation cruiser, titanium break split interfacing poles conveying to a great high drive and a strong pulse of straight torque for good performance.

The Yamaha YZF -R1M Features 

  • Electronic Racing Suspension (ERS) : The Electronic Racing Suspension (ERS) takes data from the 6-axis IMU, enabling its Suspension Control Unit (SCU) to make adjustments to the fork and shock settings. By adapting to conditions, the ERS enhances stability during braking by reducing fork diving - as well as giving improved control and increased traction when exiting corners.
  • Communication Control Unit (CCU) : The Communication Control Unit (CCU) has a data logging function that allows riders to record a wide range of running data, including lap times, speed, throttle position, GPS tracking, lean angle and more. It can also be used to communicate with the Yamaha Ride Control (YRC) system when viewing, downloading or changing the running modes.
  • YZR-M1-derived carbon bodywork : With its central forced air intake and high screen, the R1M's lightweight carbon bodywork has an unmistakable M1 race bike silhouette. Compact LED headlights are 'hidden' either side of the air intake to emphasize the race DNA, while twin LED position lights give this superbike a truly unique face.
  • M1-derived 200PS crossplane engine : The R1M is powered by a 998cc crossplane 4 cylinder 4-valve engine that develops 200PS - without ram air pressurization. Derived from our winning YZR-M1 MotoGP bike, its crossplane crankshaft gives an uneven 270° - 180° - 90° - 180° firing sequence for high levels of linear torque.
  • 6-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) : A highly sophisticated 6-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) delivers precise data on every aspect of running machine attitude to the ECU - which activates the R1M's electronic control technology, including its MotoGP-derived banking angle sensitive rear wheel Slide Control System (SCS) and Traction Control System (TCS).
  • 3-dimensional control : Equipped with a banking angle sensitive rear wheel Slide Control System (SCS) and Traction Control System (TCS) - as well as a Front LIFt control system (LIF) in addition to a Launch Control System (LCS) and Quick Shift System (QSS), the R1M's electronic control technology enables every rider to attain their full potential on the track.
  • ABS with Unified Brake System : The R1M's dual 320mm front discs and monoblock calipers - as well as the 220mm rear disc - are equipped with a sophisticated banking sensitive ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) as well as Yamaha's Unified Brake System that enable the rider to achieve high levels of controllability in different circuit or road situations.
  • Compact Deltabox chassis : The aluminium Deltabox frame features a long upward-truss type swingarm and magnesium rear frame, underlining the R1M's strong M1 race bike heritage. The short 1,405mm wheelbase chassis and the low wet weight of just 200kg give the R1M a high level of agility and responsiveness for outstanding race and track performance.
