With a development concept of "the fastest supersport," this model brings together the fullest use of the state-of-the-art technologies born of Yamaha's "GENESIS" and "G.E.N.I.C.H." design and engineering ideals aimed at rider-machine communication. This is the 5th model change since the release of the original YZF-R1 in 1998. Its main features include (1) a liquid-cooled 4-cylinder engine with the new "Yamaha Chip Controlled Intake" (YCC-I), (2) "Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle" (YCC-T), (3) aluminum Deltabox frame and (4) an exterior design that uses definitive edges to create a sense of dynamic motion.
