2012 Yamaha YZF-R1

The 2011 AMA Super bike Championship winning Yamaha-R1 with its cross plane crank and uneven firing order has taken another evolutionary step forward for 2012 with the addition of traction control and revised ECU settings. These changes make it easier for the experienced rider to bring out the full performance of the new 2012 Yamaha YZF-R1 while enjoying the unique character and sound of the revolutionary cross plane engine.

The 2012 Yamaha YZF-R1 is unlike anything before. Benefit-ting from even more Moto-GP technology for 2012 with new seven-level traction control and the World GP 50th Anniversary livery option. The World GP livery includes a 50th Anniversary emblem on top of the fuel tank and a special numbered plate showing the production number of only 2000 units that will be produced worldwide. From the track to the street, it truly is “the 1.”

For 2012, the Yamaha YZF-R1 receives another benefit from Moto-GP technology – a seven-level Traction Control System. The system has been developed so the rider does not feel any unnatural or harsh intervention from the system. In addition, traction control can aid in reducing tire wear due to less wheel spin. Coupled with the three level D-Mode electronics throttle response control, riders have 21 different choices available to tailor the Yamaha YZF-R1 to their riding preference.
