Yamaha’s new R1 it is even more aggressive looking and even more sporting. This fifth edition of one of the great sports bikes is all new while still keeping the great feel of the past. It has a new engine, now with a four valves per cylinder (in titanium) and has variable injection dimensions.

The electronic acceleration is also new as is the frame and front and rear fork. Now the brakes have two 310 disk up front with radial pins and six mini pistons. The body has also been redesigned with wings to direct airflow like on the R6.
