India Yamaha Motor Pvt. Ltd.
(IYM) has launched its all new model of its import bike YZF-R1 in a bid to
strengthen its superbike segment in the Indian market. The new YZF-R1 model has
been planned and developed as a flagship model of racing circuit with pure
MotoGP blood. The Yamaha YZF-R1 is available in 2 colours and is priced at Rs.
2,073,074 (ex-showroom, Delhi). This model will be imported as a Completely
Built Unit (CBU) by India Yamaha Motor Pvt. Ltd. (IYM).
The YZF-R1 is powered by a 998
cc, cross plane, 4-cylinder, 4-valve engine that develops 200 hp - without ram
air pressurization. Derived from YZR-M1 cross plane technology, its cross plane
crankshaft gives an uneven 270° - 180° - 90° - 180° firing sequence for high
levels of linear torque with outstanding traction. The compact chassis features
a magnesium rear frame and long swing arm for outstanding handling along with
developed suspension and magnesium wheels. Its high tech electronic control
technology – including its new Quick Shift System (QSS) offers more precise
To achieve optimal performance the engine uses a high compression 01:01 PM cylinder head featuring a pent roof combustion chamber with large diameter intake and exhaust valves. And for instant response with high power and strong linear torque, the YZF-R1 is equipped with titanium con rods and forged aluminum pistons.
For optimal intake efficiency, an YZR-M1 type central air inlet feeds a large capacity 10.5 liter air box. Fresh air is force fed into the electronically activated Yamaha Chip Controlled Intake (YCC-I) funnels that adjust their length to match engine rpm for optimum power characteristics, to give high levels of useable performance.
For peak power and strong linear torque, the cross plane engine is equipped with a lightweight 4-2-1 exhaust system. A servomotor controlled exhaust valve adjusts gas flow for enhanced response and stronger engine output, while the compact mid ship muffler contributes towards mass centralization and emits a unique growl.
The aluminum Delta-box frame features a long upward-truss type swing arm and magnesium rear frame, underlining the YZF-R1's strong race bike heritage. The short 1405 mm wheelbase chassis and the YZF-R1's low wet weight of just 199 kg give the YZF-R1 a high level of agility and responsiveness for outstanding race and track performance. With its central forced air intake, high screen and low headlight position, the YZF-R1's aerodynamic front cowl has an unmistakable YZR-M1 type race bike silhouette. Compact LED headlights on either side of the air intake emphasize the race-ready look, while twin LED running lights give this superbike a truly unique face.
