Yamaha YZF R1 2015 - 2016 Full Titanium Akrapovic system Open Sound.
At the centennial EICMA motorcycle show, Yamaha officially unveiled a new generation of R1. Yamaha claims a wet weight of 199 kg (439 lb) The new bike has an electronics package that includes a sophisticated traction and slide control, a progressively-tapering antiwheelie system, linked antilock brakes, launch control, a quickshifter, and selectable power modes. Information is fed to the bike through a six-axis gyro (Inertial measurement unit) and other sensors over 100 times a second. Power delivery is tapered through both retarded ignition and fuel cuts. Engine changes include shortened bore-to-stroke ratio, larger airbox, a finger-follower valve system, and for the first time on a registerable bike, fracture split titanium conrods.
Chassis dimensions remain identical to the previous generation with the exception of a shorter wheelbase and swingarm. It comes standard with magnesium wheels.
Information is presented to the rider through a user-customizable thin-film display.
A second higher-spec, limited production model will also be produced called the R1M, and will be differentiated from the standard model by having more expensive components such as electronic semi-active Öhlins suspension, carbon fibre bodywork, an aluminium fuel tank, various magnesium components, and stickier Bridgestone tires.
