2016 Yamaha YZF-R1
For 2016 Yamaha has up the technology on the YZF-R1 model that allows for increased control, comfort and ease of use. The crossplane on the engine has been fitted with titanium fracture-split connecting rods on the 998cc in-line 4-cylinder engine making it lighter and more efficient. From the Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) and the variable Traction Control System (TCS) to the Launch Control System (LCS) and Quick Shift System (QSS) there is plenty of electronics to keep you busy figuring out the best set up for the coolest ride.
Next February, Yamaha adds a third YZF-R1 to its sport motorcycle line-up with the more affordable ’S’ variation.
