New Yamaha R1 unveiled
New YZF superbike will make around 200hp and weigh 199kg fully fuelled
Yamaha has finally unveiled the highly anticipated 2015 YZF-R1 at the Eicma show in Milan.
A more detailed report is to follow but the new bike will use a version of the current R1's CP4 crossplane crankshaft engine, making around 200hp.
The engine has a newly designed crankshaft, titanium conrods and a slipper clutch.
Impressively, the 2015 model will weigh only 199kg fully fuelled, thanks to lightweight components like a titanium exhaust system, cast magnesium wheels, and an aluminium fuel tank and Deltabox frame.
The six-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) with '3D motion detection' controls the electronics package which consists of launch control, wheelie control, traction control, ABS brakes and a plethora of information on the digital TFT full colour dash.
More info to follow - stay tuned.
