After years of getting beaten up in various magazine superbike shootouts Yamaha finally pulls the pin and debuts an all-new YZF-R1 featuring production technologies learned from its MotoGP effort. Based on the information we learned from our First Look article, the R1 is set to eclipse the competition in the electronics department offering an multitude of settings and fine adjustment for hard core track riders and racers. The motorcycle is also lighter, with a improved center of gravity, and quicker, and more powerful engine response. If you haven’t seen it yet, take a peek at Yamaha’s R1 promotional video shot from Chuckwalla Valley Raceway, site of our big Superbike Smackdown VIII from 2011.
