Yamaha YZF-R1SP

15 Jan 2010 | None of us will be to ride like Rossi, but you can the part with the new limited YZF-R1SP.

This special liveried version of Yamaha’s model YZF-R1 supersports will hit the showrooms in March

The YZF-R1SP will be available in limited numbers at RRP (inc $21,299. Customers are urged to their dealers to place an to avoid disappointment.

The YZF-R1SP is on a 2010 R1 but fitted with decal kit that includes #46 numbers front and rear and the signature on the fuel tank to it the ultimate autograph collector’s

The revolutionary YZF-R1 was introduced at the end of 2009. The radical and innovative new represented the most significant in engine and chassis technology seen in the 11-year history of legendary motorcycle.

Featuring an 998cc engine whose feel and character has been by Rossi’s championship winning M1, the new R1 powerplant is closely linked to our GP bike. In fact the new model R1 has benefited from more GP developed technology than any in its long and prestigious history.

In the completely redesigned aluminium chassis and aggressive styling, the new-generation YZF-R1 a radical new and bring innovative technology to the In the same way that the original threw the rule book out of the this revolutionary new model a new benchmark for the super-competitive 1000cc category.

Crossplane crankshaft for purer torque output

than look exclusively to electronic aids to further the YZF-R1’s performance and controllability, engineers have opted for a solution.

The defining and most feature of the YZF-R1SP is the use of an innovative new engine which has been from our winning YZR-M1 GP design. Undoubtedly the single significant piece of technology to be on this compact new high-performance is its race-developed crossplane crankshaft, delivers outstandingly pure characteristics and high levels of Indeed, the engine’s linear and torque characteristics are the very of this radical YZF-R1SP.

firing interval for new levels of and traction

The engine’s uneven — 180° — 90° 180° firing interval the YZF-R1 rider a more and immediate feeling of control the torque output levels. In the engine’s linear torque gives rise to a confidence-inspiring that makes each input, however subtle, as though it is transmitted directly to the tyre.

The result of this torque is an enormously capable supersport motorcycle that is to deliver previously unattainable of traction for unrivalled cornering

To accentuate the performance gains of the crankshaft engine, we have developed a short-wheelbase aluminium chassis and optimised the front and suspension systems. And the radical and styling emphasises the YZF-R1’s of mass.

Inline 4-cylinder

This remarkable 998cc inline 4-cylinder 4-valve features bore x … of 78.0 mm x 52.2 mm, giving an short … layout, with the largest bore ever used on a Yamaha supersport engine. In association the short … and big bore, a compression ratio of 12.7:1 is which contributes to the engine’s power output of 182 PS at 12,500 and a torque output of 115.5 Nm kg-m) at 10,000 rpm with aspiration.

Crossplane crankshaft with firing interval for linear control

Undoubtedly the most change for 2009 was the use of an all-new crankshaft which is based on the race-bred technology that was developed for the Yamaha YZR-M1 racing machine. This crankshaft was introduced in order to the engine to produce more torque characteristics, together more accurate and linear control (see sidebar on for explanation).

The engine’s linear characteristics deliver a 1:1 relationship the rider’s throttle input and the output to the rear tyre, and it is crucial aspect of the bike’s that allows the rider to a new of level of cornering performance, with outstanding traction entering the mid-section of a corner, and when accelerating out of a bend.

The engine also benefits shorter cylinder stud which give a weight and at the same time helps overall engine height to compact overall dimensions.

split (FS) carburised con

The YZF-R1SP is equipped with (FS) carburised con rods, a that has been used by Yamaha since the 2004 YZF-R1. The two halves of each big end ring are re-assembled along the fracture lines, and this for a stronger and more perfectly big end, giving outstanding and reliability.

Optimised large-diameter journal and flywheel mass

The engine design is equipped a larger 36 mm crank journal to 32 mm diameter on the 2008 model which is designed to handle the new and torque characteristics of the crossplane

YCC-I (Yamaha Chip Intake)

The YCC-I system electronically-controlled intake funnels length can be varied to suit the engine speed in order to good intake pulsation.

At low to mid speeds the long and short operate as a single connected but when the engine speed 9400 rpm the YCC-I on the new YZF-R1 automatically separates the lower and upper funnel by means of an servomotor. By varying intake to suit engine rpm, the system enables the new YZF-R1 to operate more effectively the rpm band, and the funnel separation is so smooth that the rider is it has happened.

YCC-T (Yamaha Chip Throttle)

The advanced YCC-T throttle system delivers controllability at all speeds, and helps to any hesitation caused by an excessive supply when the throttle is suddenly. The system adjusts the valve opening via a servomotor at of 1/100th of a second. By constantly and adjusting the optimal throttle and intake air volume to match the engine running conditions, the consistently ensures that the engine produces an optimum torque curve — and the timing is mapped separately for cylinder in order to ensure combustion processes.

Fuel system with secondary

The YCC-T operates a highly-efficient injector type fuel system which is designed to outstanding throttle response and performance at all riding speeds.

twin injector system a main injector together a secondary injector, which is at the upper edge of the funnel. The injector comes into in the engine’s mid to high-speed range to the main injector, and this ensures remarkable response and acceleration and performance.

D-mode Map

The is equipped with a D-mode Map works in association with the (Yamaha Chip Controlled and allows the rider to select a profile to match their

The D-mode Map consist of three which are: Standard A mode; and B mode; and the rider can which mode is best to the prevailing riding conditions by a switch on the handlebars. Standard is mapped to give optimum performance, while the A mode sharper engine response, and the B gives a gentler response to the throttle inputs.

Redesigned air intake

The YZF-R1SP’s redesigned air intake system utilises the airflow to increase the pressure of the air in the and this ensures increased of power at higher speeds for performance. This system air in through the front cowl, and it via the left and right sides of the new directly into the airbox. The forced air intake system special new side branches reduce intake noise.


For even more handling performance when during quick downshifting, the is equipped with a slipper This clutch features a that adjusts clutch load when excessive is transferred from the rear to the crank when the rider down through the transmission. By excessive engine braking this system enhances controllability.

4-2-1-2 exhaust and up-slanted mufflers

In order to an effective exhaust pulsation to the engine’s crossplane crankshaft, an system is fitted in which the pipes for the 1st and 4th cylinders and for the 2nd and 3rd cylinders are together in a 4-2-1-2 layout.

Deltabox frame

The YZF-R1SP with a completely new aluminium frame which has been to deliver class-leading handling and performance. Particular attention has paid to achieving a handling which allows the rider to utilise the new linear torque and high levels of traction by the new crossplane crankshaft engine.

the exception of the internal forced air ducts, the Deltabox frame is completely different to the 2008 and as well as featuring a new shape different dimensions, the type of used and the frame’s overall balance are also changed.

The frame uses a combination of types of aluminium to achieve the balance of rigidity. Gravity parts are used for the head as well as the engine mount and the pivot support assembly, the outside tank rails are from CF …-cast aluminium allows the use of much thinner Parts for the inner tank are made from extruded

Idealised balance of rigidity

By a combination of lightweight parts different characteristics, Yamaha’s have succeeded in creating a frame that delivers an balance of rigidity. Lateral has been adjusted, and as well as high speed stability, feature also helps overall handling performance, in terms of enabling effective when exiting a curve.

The is a stressed member of the frame, and the mounts are rigid types, two on the upper crankcase and two on the lower and two at the right and left ends of the head. The frame uses strong cast parts at the pipe, swingarm pivot and mounts, while the …-cast and aluminium structures that them are given a degree of

This unique combination of and slightly less rigid components are what give the Deltabox frame such a character, which allows the to explore the full potential of the outstanding performance. In addition, the balance of rigidity on this frame also enhances the special direct torque associated with the exciting crankshaft engine, making the a truly unique riding

Compact dimensions with centre of gravity

The R1 engine is mounted 9 degrees upright than the 2008 and the cylinders are angled forward at 31 Also, the engine mounting is 12 mm further forward in relation to the axis than the 2008 and this factor helps towards making the front feel even more to the road. And with the pivot set a few mm lower than previously, of drive force to the road is improved.

These factors, with a fuel tank have come together to a centre of gravity that is lower than the existing giving optimised handling

To illustrate the bike’s compactness, an triangle created by joining the and rear tyre contact with the centre of gravity is than on the 2008 YZF-R1. compactness makes for agile performance, and allows the rider to full use of the linear torque and traction when powering out of

Large-capacity fuel tank

of mass has been a significant on all R-series supersport machines, and the takes the concept one step with the fitment of a large-capacity tank. The press-formed shape was using 3-D simulation analysis and this has enabled our engineers to a larger, elongated fuel which sits neatly the twin spar aluminium frame.

With a capacity of 18 the shape and position of the fuel helps to improve concentration of and its central location helps to any variation in the YZF-R1SP’s handling as the amount of fuel in the tank

Magnesium rear frame

By lightweight materials for those that are furthest from the centre of balance, Yamaha’s have been able to the YZF-R1’s concentration of mass further.

The magnesium rear made its debut on the 2008 R6, and its use on the YZF-R1SP takes the concentration of on this new generation one litre machine to a new level.

Swingarm optimised rigidity balance

The and successful combination of a short and long swingarm has been a on all YZF-R1 models since the was launched. A short wheelbase is with high levels of and good manoeuvrability, while a swingarm which pivots to the machine’s mid-way point to deliver excellent stability acceleration. In addition, because the long swingarm features a point which is located to the axis of the final drive rear suspension squat hard acceleration is minimised.

The features a gravity-cast pivot while the arm and end-piece is a single-unit CF assembly. As a result of these the weight of the new swingarm is reduced, and the balance has been optimised. swingarm design helps to responsive suspension action and handling performance, especially the YZF-R1SP rider is exiting from a corner.

2-way rear shock absorber and rear suspension

The adjustable shock absorber is equipped both low and high-speed compression adjustment, allowing the rider to set the up to suit their individual and different riding conditions.

The type suspension has been to make the most effective use of the 120 mm allowing the shock absorber to efficiently for a stable and smooth experience. Surface feedback and response are all improved by the use of a pillow-type joint in the rear shock, and for of adjustment, a hydraulic-type adjuster is

Furthermore, bottom-link system to lower the mounting location of the suspension, and contributes to concentration of by setting the fuel tank in the space.

43mm front with independent left/right damping mechanisms

Like the model, the new YZF-R1SP is equipped 43mm diameter front but they are of a completely different to previous suspension systems on our R-series models.

The rebound and damping functions are separated, the left fork equipped the compression damping valves, and the fork equipped with the damping valves. This offers a number of advantages, the simplification of valve designs and oil as well as minimising cavitations successive strokes, and easier

Separating the damping functions has enabled our engineers to increase the of the internal cylinders which to stabilise various pressure This increase in cylinder and oil volume also ensures there is always sufficient oil to deliver effective damping for even the smallest front movements. Simpler, more and easier to adjust, the front system offers a clear to the YZF-R1SP rider.

Lighter brake discs with controllability

The R-series models are for their class-leading braking and the YZF-R1SP’s compact system has designed to offer optimum of braking power and controllability. The braking system features 310 mm discs which are slowed by six-piston calipers each four pads. The lighter discs reduce the inertial around the axle, which the gyro effect of the front to give lighter, more handling and quicker directional

In addition, the inner rotor has redesigned to give the desired of play to promote stable force, and the front brake offers improved operability and

The rear brake features a diameter disc and single-piston caliper with an aluminium giving good braking and controllability.

Innovative cooling with active air management

The system on the YZF-R1SP features a of innovations, and a unique feature of advanced design is the use of lightweight resin piping between the radiator and engine. This plastic piping has been using the ‘floating core’ which makes for a lightweight

By locating the inner cowl as as possible to the engine, a passage has created to channel the air after it has through the radiator and the two compact At the same time, the negative created along the surface of the cowl by the external airflow is used to draw this hot air from the machine, resulting in effective heat dissipation. efficiency is further improved by the that sufficient space is between the inner cowl and the to allow the heated air to escape ease.

Rear tyre 55% R rating

To match the YZF-R1SP’s torque feel and enhanced performance, a 190/55R-17 rear is fitted. This slightly profile tyre (compared to a 50% ratio on the existing YZF-R1) is to deliver a good grip especially when accelerating from a curve.

Front end featuring headlights with air intakes

One of the most visual changes to the YZF-R1SP is the cowl that features projector headlights integrated the air induction intakes. At the same as being instantly recognisable as an design, this radical end accentuates the image of the YZF-R1SP through the air in forward motion, and an even more intimidating and supersport image.

The innovative headlight design features a coil type high/low switching mechanism. On low beam a shade covers part of the and when the high beam is selected by the rider, the shade to reveal the whole of the projector beam.

By using this coil type high/low switching mechanism, Yamaha’s have been able to the 2008 model’s four headlights (two high two low beam) with two units, much greater freedom in the of a much more compact and front cowl.

Styling concentration of mass

The bold new and aggressive styling is designed to the feeling of the YZF-R1SP’s concentration of and dense compactness, together a sense of minimalism and a front-rear of power.

At the same time the view is aimed at drawing to the visual expression of the immense and driving power of the YZF-R1’s crankshaft engine.

The sculptured cowl offers excellent for enhanced performance, as well as levels of wind protection. In this stylish cowl has been designed to ensure hot air is removed from the engine and its other role is to ensure hot air is extracted from the engine to give excellent heat
