After 10 years on the market, now comes a very big step: A completely new R1 with -irregular firing order- engine. This technology is derived from MotoGP, where it was developed for the famous M1 on which Valentino Rossi won the championship in 2008 (also using this irregular firing order to improve traction and control in the corner). This technology gives the engine a completely different sound, more of a -roar- than ever before.

The fuel injection system gained a second injector which complements the main injector, helping the engine-s mid to high-speed range for better response and acceleration. A choice of engine mappings is now available to suit the power delivery to the rider-s style of riding.

The exhaust system is a 4 into 2 into 1 into 2 system ensuring effective exhaust pulsations in line with the new engine firing order. The mufflers are fitted tightly under the seat and triangular shaped.

The engine delivers 182 HP at 12.500 rpm. The dry weight is not stated anymore due to an agreement between manufacturers. From now on only the -Wet- weight will be mentioned, including the liquids and a full fuel tank, and the new YZF-R1 weighs in at a ultra competitive 206 kg.

The chassis is a completely new design to exploit the full potential of the new engine. The engine is once again used as a stressed member of the frame. The cylinders are angled at 31 degrees forward and the engine mounting is more forward to help the front wheel -stick- to the tarmac.

The footrests are adjustable and the rear frame is made of lightweight magnesium.

The rear shock-s compression damping is now adjustable at both high and low speed damping.

In the front fork, the rebound damping is in the right fork and the compression in the left fork allowing a more precise level of adjustment. This also simplifies the oil flows and makes for easier adjustability with both adjustments on top of the forks.

The bike-s bodywork is totally new. The projector headlights have a novel low/high beam switching mechanism inside them, so that only 2 projectors are needed in total, instead of 2 low beam plus 2 high beam projectors.

Introducing the 2010 R1 – Yamaha’s technical Tour de Force.

The MotoGP-inspired R1 is the most advanced Open-class production motorcycle.

The R1 has been designed to be the Ultimate Cornering Master of the open super sport class and one of the keys to incredible handling lies partly in the chassis but equally as important, in its ability to put useable power to the ground. This revolutionary cross-plane crank R1 delivers as much power as the rider wants, exactly when the rider wants it – by a simple twist of the right wrist; leaving the rider feeling like they are directly connected to the rear wheel of the new R1.

Forget everything you ever knew about the supersport liter class. The 2010 Yamaha YZF-R1 is unlike anything before. That’s because it’s the world’s first production motorcycle with a crossplane crankshaft. The result?

Incredibly smooth power delivery and outrageous torque for a rush like you’ve never experienced.

The 2010 Yamaha R1 represents a paradigm shift in technology, performance and controllability among litre class sport bikes. Inspired by Yamaha’s M1 MotoGP race bike, this latest generation R1 features a crossplane crankshaft design with an uneven firing order to provide outstanding yet easy to control torque and an exceptionally linear throttle feel never experienced before. But there is far more to the R1 than just a revolutionary engine.
