The Bike uses Yamaha’s Deltabox frame which houses the 998cc plane four-cylinder motor that produces a whopping 197bhp at 13,500 rpm and 112.4 Nm of max torque at 11,500 rpm, all wrapped in aerodynamics MotoGP- style bodywork.

Apart from these, the bike’s electronic package includes Slide control, Launch control, anti-wheelie control, braking sensitive traction control and Yamaha’s unified braking system.

In summary, Yamaha YZF-R1 is the strong beast that runs with the thrilling passion like Formula’s race. I would like to warn against such a ride, cuz more than 50% of these bikes smash on the first day of purchase.

Please, ride safely !!!
