Precision Handling

The Yamaha YZF-R1 features a quick-shift system and highly responsive steering. It is capable of safely making high-speed turns for freeway driving, and it has a tight turn radius for navigating through congested areas. The acceleration and braking systems are highly responsive, as well as intuitive and easy to learn. Top-of-the-line suspension helps keep the ride smooth.

Fuel Efficiency

Under the right driving conditions, some Yamaha YZF-R1 road bikes can achieve a fuel efficiency of up to 50 miles per gallon. The average fuel efficiency for city driving is closer to 35 miles per gallon. This is significantly higher than many similarly sized motorbikes.


An aerodynamic design means that the Yamaha YZF-R1 gets very little wind resistance. The custom front and side panels make the entire bike look slim and streamlined. This model comes in a wide selection of colours, including bikes with black, white, red, green, and blue. You can also choose between a gloss and ultra-gloss finish. There are even customised models that feature a combination of panels with two or more complementary colours.

Safety Features

The YZF-R1 is a Yamaha chain road bike, and it features anti-slip technology as well as slide control to make driving in rainy conditions safer. The balanced aluminium body reduces the likelihood of tipping. A unified braking system makes it possible to make sudden stops without excessive skidding. Secure grip on the foot holds helps you maintain a safe and comfortable stance while in motion.
