Yamaha has a rich heritage of building the most sought-after supersport motorcycles designed to deliver the pinnacle of performance on and off the track. The 2020 Yamaha R1 is forged from the technology and development gained from countless racetrack challenges, from MotoGP to the Canadian Superbike Championship. From crossplane crankshaft engines to revolutionary electronics such as the six-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), Yamaha's historical achievements have become the future of R World.
REFINED CP4 ENGINE
The new 2020 R1 comes equipped with the next generation of Yamaha's unique 998 cc inline four-cylinder crossplane crankshaft (CP4) engine for refined performance. Returning features such as titanium fracture-split connecting rods and offset cylinders contribute to a responsive and potent character, while the cylinder head, fuel injectors, finger-follower rocker arms, and camshaft profiles are new for 2020.
Based on 22 years of proven race-winning engineering, the 2020 Yamaha R1M and R1 are forged from the technology and development gained from countless challenges in MotoGP, World Superbike, and MotoAmerica Superbike races, and the grueling demands of Endurance World Championship racing.
MULTIFUNCTION TFT SCREEN
The R1 features a brilliant full-colour, thin-film transistor (TFT) instrument screen, with front brake pressure and fore/aft G-force readouts, giving the rider even more feedback from the machine. Choose either the street or track display mode, the latter of which focuses on performance information such as YRC settings (including new Engine Braking Management and Brake Control systems), a zoomed-in view of the tachometer in the upper rpm range, a lap timer, gear position indicator and speed.
