Yamaha announces new production run of the R1M

Registration opens October 1

Yamaha announces new production run of the R1M
The Yamaha R1M is back for 2016

YAMAHA has today announced that it’s making another 75 YZF-R1Ms and will be accepting applications from October 1.

The R1M is the top-spec R1 and is currently sold out, but a limited production run of 75 new bikes will make it available again for 2016. You can have it in any colour you want, as long as it's the 'Silver Blu and Carbon' pictured in the photo above.

Yamaha is also inviting owners of 2016 R1Ms to register for the Yamaha Racing Experience, a series of track events taking place at circuits across Europe.

To register and for more information, go to:

The 2016 R1M joins the freshly announced special-edition Speed Block R1.

In a press release Yamaha said:

All new 2016 R1M owners can register and will have free access to the Yamaha Racing Experience, an exclusive event that will take place at a number of major European tracks in late spring 2016.

In July 2015 the first ever YZF-R1M owners attended the exclusive Yamaha Racing Experience track event under the supervision of MotoGP legend Colin Edwards. Following the tremendous success and positive rider feedback that came out of these inaugural events, the 2016 YRE will follow a similar format covering bike preparation and settings, as well as track riding skills.

With its sophisticated electronic control systems and advanced engine and chassis technologies, the R1M is a complex motorcycle that must be set up correctly in order to achieve the best performance. 2016 R1M owners will be taught how to prepare and fine tune the bike by our team of highly skilled Yamaha Racing technicians, enabling every rider to discover their true potential on the racetrack.

Attended by many prominent Yamaha Racing personalities - including a number of MotoGP stars - the comprehensive YRE program will include presentations and workshops, as well as riding sessions with qualified instructors and professional riders from national and international Yamaha Racing teams. The aim of the YRE is to enable riders to achieve the best set up for their new R1M, as well as to inspire owners with the competitive spirit of Yamaha that has made the company one of the most successful brands in national and international racing.
