About YZF R1 [2012]

The big boy of the Japanese automaker’s  range, the Yamaha R1, has been its flagship vehicle for the last 14 years and was introduced in the Indian market in 2009 with the 2008 MY bike.

It is underpinned by a diamond design aluminium frame and an inline four 998cc petrol engine. The YFZR1 gets telescopic forks in front and double swing arm for the rear. Given that the engine produces 179bhp and 115Nm of torque, Yamaha has fitted the front wheels with 310mm dual discs while the rear has been given  a 220mm single disc. The engine sends power to the rear wheel via a chain drive and a six-speed sequential manual gearbox.

Standard features on the YFZR1 include a slipper clutch, adjustable foot rest, projector headlights and an electronic instrument gauge with dual trip metre as well as an analogue tachometer. Yamaha offers the YFR1 in India in three shades-blue, white and WGP anniversary edition which is a combination of red and white.

It competes with the Honda Fireblade CBR1000, Suzuki GSX-1000 and  the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R in the litre class category.
