Yamaha unveils track-exclusive R1 GYTR motorcycle

- Built on the standard YZF-R1

- Gets a boat load of race-oriented parts

- Built by the same firm that builds track bikes for racers to practice

Yamaha Europe has announced the all-new R1 GYTR, a track-exclusive offering. While it looks similar to the stock YZF R1, the bike packs quite some goodies to make it faster around the track. Let’s take a look at it.

The track-only R1 is built by Genuine Yamaha Technologies Racing (GYTR), the same firm that builds bikes for racers to practice on. For reference, GYTR sponsors the GRT Yamaha WBSK team and the Yamaha Austria Racing Team. It’s no surprise that the Japanese bikemaker introduced the R1 GYTR just days after Aprilia unveiled the RSV4 XTrenta

Speaking of the parts, the R1 GYTR is equipped with an Akrapovic race muffler, mid-pipe, AIS plug set, engine cover, GYTR ECU, wiring harness, GYTR ABS Emulator, 15/42T 520 sprockets, GYTR R-Series 520 racing chain, Brembo Z04 brake pads, GYTR Stainless Steel Brake Line Set and more. 

Interested buyers can only purchase the R1 GYTR from GYTR Pro Shops, all located overseas. Going ahead, Yamaha will also launch GYTR Pro race parts. The package will comprise more than 400 parts developed by GYTR. Not to mention, Valentino Rossi too had a set of GYTR parts dubbed as GYTR Pro VR46 for his practice race bike.

Yamaha will reveal the official asking price for the GYTR parts later this year.
