Compared to the previous model of the 2012th Yamaha R1 has not changed much. The main addition is the traction control. Although traction control used to be rare in engines, now this is the main trump almost all manufacturers.
In addition to traction control new YZF-R1 has a new nose, a slotted top yoke inspired by the YZR-M1, new muffler end caps, a longer sear shock and grippier footpegs.
Last spring a little softer than the previous model, which makes driving more comfortable, but despite all the upgrades New Yamaha YZF-R1 is a half step behind its rivals .. Aprilia RSV4 and the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R. Yamaha YZF-R1 is a better living engine, comfortable and fast enough to keep the adrenaline high.
The Yamaha YZF-R1 used MotoGP technologies. Traction control with seven levels, the system was developed so that the driver does not feel the no natural or sharp assists computers, except that controls prolizavanja can reduce tire wear due to less wheel spin.
The R1 model kept all technology predecessors .. YCC-T (Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle) is used to deliver instant throttle response, YCC-I is Yamaha Chip Controlled Intake which is used to control the valve. The fuel injection system provides optimum air / fuel mixtures for maximum power and smooth throttle response.
In accordance with the OVM extraordinary machine comes a new aluminum frame that provides a better and sharper steering last frame of Controlled-Fill die cast magnesium. which contributes to the distribution of weight
The sound on the YZF-R1 is precise and throaty pulse of the exhaust note will have riders enthused every time the throttle is opened.
The sound on thCrossplane crankshaft technology proven in victory after victory on MotoGP machines provides a high-tech uneven firing order. Unlik typical four cylinder in-line construction wherein the two outer and two inner pistons in pairs at intervals of 180 ° of the cross-plane crankshaft 90 ° with each connecting rod has a unique firing of 270 ° -180 ° – 90 ° – 180 °. This overcomes the inherent fluctuations in the moment of inertia for each engine speed and torque characteristics of the accompanying peaky. Instead, combustion torque continues to build, so that the driver sea linear response with awesome power and traction out of the corners. Seven-level Traction Control System allows the rider to get more traction and drive while output curve.
