Motorcycles have become a trend in the past few years and they’re included in viral discussions online. News of the recently released Yamaha R1 2015 has entertained a stampede of fans. The automaker publicly unveiled the newest addition to the Yamaha family of motorcycles, the 2015 R1 model on November 3, 2014.
It’s a redesign which has adopted the M1 MotoGP’s architecture. The 2015 R1 has received notable enhancements to make it lightweight, resilient and a violent little road-monster. With a brand-new, cutting-edge electronics package added, it’s a superior build to that of the M1 MotoGP.
The automaker announced that this modern design weighs 439-lbs, backed by a 200 horsepower engine. This brand-new model has a 1hp/lb power-to-weight ratio, which makes it the industry’s best-in-class motorcycle. The previous model was 15-lbs heavier and had an estimated 18 horsepower break in speed. It has been fitted with a brand-new, violent cross-plane engine. With dual-direction fuel injectors, a 10.5-liter air-box, compatible titanium-based fracture-split connecting rods and a durable exhaust system; the 2015 R1 is a beast-of-a-motorcycle.
The 2015 R1 motorcycle has a main ram-air intake system. Yamaha highlighted that it included a cutting-edge banking-sensitive traction-control system with ABS. This added to the motorcycle’s security and safety feature. It also has a quick-shifter, power modes and launch/lift control. The subframe of the 2015 Yamaha R1 boasts a magnesium construction, which complements its cast-magnesium wheels and aluminum tank. It has a modified chassis, which has a stunted wheel-base and a top-heavy, aluminum-based Delta box construction, designed for compact dimensions.
It’s a superbike and the new, blue-coated magnesium wheels added, makes it two pounds lighter and faster. The dated steel tank has been replaced with a lightweight aluminum design, which cuts another 3.5 pounds of needless weight. The motorcycle will make it the marketplace in February 2015. Communication is a breeze with the interactive YRC (Yamaha Ride Control) ECU (Engine Control Unit). It promises safe handling and full control of the unit with reliable rider assist service. The technology features acceleration modes, including:
Lean-angle sensitive-traction control
Linked ABS braking
4-stage lift control
User-programmable acceleration modes
4-stage slide switch
It sports a brand-new TFT motorcycle dashboard which complements its advanced features. The 2015 R1 starting price is $16,490 when it gets released in February. The modern touches, including twin LED headlamps to its front panel are favorable enhancements. It has a sporty, track-focused appeal.
