2006 YZR-M1 (0WR3)
(2006 / Racing Machine)
This MotoGP factory machine maintained the same basic concepts as the 2005 machine 0WP4. To increase engine rpm and power output, changes were made in the bore and stroke specs and a fly-by-wire system that regulated the throttle valve action by electronic control was adopted. The engine management system also included further maturation of the throttle control, engine-brake control, wheelie control and traction control functions. These spec changes increased maximum power output by approximately 5 hp in the latter part of the season. The frame featured a newly designed rear arm mounting assembly that helped add lightness and greater stability under braking.
