2020 YZF-R1

Built without compromise, the legendary YZF-R1 is Yamaha's ultimate supersport motorcycle.
Since this game-changing model was launched, one of the most significant developments in its history has been the introduction of Yamaha's revolutionary crossplane engine in 2009. Producing strong, linear torque, Yamaha's crossplane technology transformed the supersport riding experience with its high level of useable power, and marked the beginning of a new era in which Yamaha has focused on achieving enhanced rideability and control.

A huge leap forward came in 2015 with the introduction of a whole new generation of electronic control technology which enabled every rider to push their YZF-R1 closer to the limit. Although it shared the same name as its predecessors, the 2015 model was in effect an all-new motorcycle that marked the YZF-R1's transition from the analogue to the digital world, and in 2018 the introduction of even more electronic advanced rider aids underlined this flagship model's technological sophistication.

For 2020 the YZF-R1 features a radical new race-bred look together with a highly refined engine and uprated chassis that confirm its position as the ultimate Yamaha supersport. With its radical new MotoGP styling and now equipped with a total of seven electronic rider controls, the 2020 YZF-R1 is more than ready for the third decade of the 21st century.
