The R1M is the most advanced production motorcycle ever created by Yamaha. Built specifically for supreme performance on the racetrack, it is equipped with revolutionary electronic control technology that enables you to push even harder and discover your true potential.
R history. Your future.
Yamaha has created the race-focused R1M using some of the most sophisticated technology developed from the race-winning M1 MotoGP bike. Its state-of-the-art Öhlins Electronic Racing Suspension (ERS) with NPX anti-cavitation gas front forks bring out your best performance at every circuit – and the low frontal area carbon bodywork helps to shave your lap times.
But what really makes the R1M such a game-changer are the high-tech rider aids including Brake Control, Engine Brake Management and Launch Control – as well as a Communication Control Unit for datalogging and wireless engine tuning. Available in the renewed carbon-and-black Icon Performance colour featuring blue accents and blue wheels, the R1M is the ultimate R-Series delivering the most complete racetrack package.
