Yamaha has released its 4th generation flagship motorcycle, the YZF-R1, or the R1 to those in the know.

Point-to-point, the R1 has one of the quickest sports bikes on the often bestowed with a ratio that would off a lot of riders

And for 2006, the new model even more power it’s 5-valve-per-cylinder 998cc engine and an even better chassis for 2006.

Yamaha is that these changes, with some body revisions, will make that its legendary machine it’s position as the most and desirable 1000cc supersport on the market.

The 2006 model R1 is available in a special colour to Yamaha’s 50th Anniversary. explains that the ‘Extreme machine was inspired by the livery of the World Championship winning that dominated the 500cc Racing Championships back in 1979 and 1980.

For 2006 says that it has focussed R1 on increased engine and cornering and to achieve this goal, engineers have boosted by maximising intake and exhaust and optimised the frame balance by the main frame and lengthening the (connects the rear wheel to the

The new R1 maintains the same liquid-cooled dual overhead camshaft, forward-inclined, 4-cylinder and 5-valve injected engine format.

But last years engine as a the company has designed a new combustion installed new high-lift cams a 12.4:1 compression ratio has intake/exhaust efficiency for a significant in power output.

A smoother port shape has also intake air volume. Max power has raised by 3hp to 175hp at the same rpm of 12,500rpm (or 183hp with ram air

This equates to about — or 136kW with ram air which is significant when you the bike weighs just dry (dry = no fluids, such as petrol, brake fluid Yamaha hasn’t released any 0-100km/h times, but the 2006 R1 is to reach 100km/h from in about 2.8 seconds.

In addition to the 1.0-litre engine, another of the entrenched components return: the V frame.

For the 4th generation R1, explains Yamaha, the has been further revised to optimum rigidity balance for handling, developed using analysis and repeated testing on the same concept as the MotoGP model YZR-M1.

Yamaha has that the upper portion of the frame, the engine mount and rear arm bracket specs been changed to optimise rigidity, while the rigidity and of the under-bracket for the front fork and the balance of the fork’s outer have also been

The combined effect of these is to provide the ideal balance for cornering performance. These also contribute to gentler characteristics for excellent secondary qualities.

The upside down swingarm maintains the same fill structure but is 16mm than the previous R1 generation. explains that the resulting in distance between the pivot and the axle contributes to reduced to the chassis resulting from tension during cornering also providing a good balance for increased traction. The rear arm also increases the adjustment range and the selection of specs that can be used.

For the experienced and discerning customers has a real Supersport treat in the of the YZF-R1SP.

The Japanese motorcycle maker it clear that this specification SP version of the YZF-R1 is in a limited run of only 500 units with Australian getting 30 of them — all of which are for.

Fetching about (Australian currency) the R1SP is in price to a swanky Italian bike, such as a Ducati 999 or RSV 1000 R Factory, and comes a range of high quality racing components that been developed and tested for this machine made in association with Ohlins and As the company assert, this is not average R1.

And to support this further the YZF-R1SP has a very high quality colour featuring a golden tuning The R1SP is lighter, quicker and better at the limit thanks to a of tweaks, including new Marchesini which reduce unsprung and aid cornering and rapid changes of Ohlins suspension components contribute to the R1SP’s abilities, on-the-limit stability and plenty of
