The YZF-R1 and R1M are based on Yamaha's 'High Tech Armed Pure Sport' concept. This makes them an all-out supersport model fully armed with advanced technology. According to the company, these bikes will allow riders to experience he technical philosophy behind Yamaha's MotoGP racing machine, the YZR-M1. The bikes are based on the Speed Racer concept and hence boast of a light, slim, and compact look. The new fairing shape features the cross-layered wing while the front face of the new bikes inherits the twin-headlight configuration found in the R-series of the past. The bikes feature a 998cc liquid-cooled, 4-stroke, in-line four- cylinder, 4-valve engine with a crossplane crankshaft. Thanks to this engine there is 200bhp on offer which is 18bhp more than what the current R1 puts out. It's shed a bit of weight too; all of 4kg.
