The 2006 model YZF-R1 was developed to take the existing model's already outstanding basic functions and add even more performance potential through maturation of the engine and chassis with the aim of "offering an even more exciting world of riding." The boosted max. power output and the optimized rigidity balance of the chassis substantially increase the performance and further refine its famed R1 handling.
As a deluxe performance model, the "YZF-R1 SP" version boasts added performance potential for circuit riding with features including (1) a "slipper clutch" that contributes to smoother cornering performance, (2) Ohlins suspensions for more consistent, stable performance and (3) lightweight Marchesini forged aluminum wheels front and rear.
