The instruments look fairly similar, but there is now extra information about the new electronic rider aids.
YZF-R1 forks and brakes
R1 43mm KYB inverted forks replace the slimmer 41mm forks and it gets the R1 KYB rear shock. It is adjustable for preload, rebound damping, and low- and high-speed compression damping.
It also gets the R1 320mm front brake discs, up from 310mm, with four-piston aluminium callipers, plus a new ABS.
There are no tech specs yet, but the bike must be lighter as the subframe is lighter and the contoured aluminium fuel tank with knee recesses is 1.2kg lighter. That may also mean reduced fuel capacity but there are no further details.
It will come in three different colours – Intensity White/Matte Silver, Matte Raven Black, and Team Yamaha Blue – but we are not yet sure if they will all be available in Australia.
