This is the flagship of Yamaha’s supersport lineup. It was developed under a“High Tech-armed Pure Sport” model concept that aims to provide a tangible experience of the technological ideals used for the YZR-M1 MotoGP machine in a production model. To achieve the performance potential to make it “the fastest bike on the circuit,” this model is powered by a high-output engine and boasts advanced electronic control technology like the first 6-axis Inertial Measurement Unit on a production motorcycle to achieve high levels of handling performance and ridability. The high-spec YZF-R1M adds electronically controlled suspensions, lightweight carbon fiber cowlings and an interface that records a variety of information useful for racing.
