The Yamaha YZF-R1 needs no introduction. Considered one of the most influential supersports ever made, the iconic Japanese motorcycle has been around for 25 years now. Its most recent update was in 2020, when a complete overhaul brought a new engine, top-of-the-line electronics and hardware, and several other features derived from Yamaha’s successful MotoGP endeavors. The Yamaha YZF-R1 and the higher-spec R1M continue into the 2023 Yamaha Motorcycle lineup, essentially unchanged over last year’s models.

Yamaha R1 Review

Quick Comparison

Yamaha R1 is their finest sportbike of all time. The liter class machine is a perfect blend of lightweight performance and unconventional styling. In India, the flagship Yamaha R1 is priced at INR 18,16,192 (ex-showroom). It has seen drop of around INR 6 lakh worth price in last few months as Yamaha changed the country of import initially and later, tax on completely built units was reduced by a big margin. Both factors made this superbike feel more genuinely priced than ever. R1 is powered by a 998cc, four cylinder engine producing 200PS at 13,500 rpm and 112.4 Nm at 11,500 rpm.

The motorcycle weighs 200 kg, including full fuel tank and oil. Carrying 17 liter fuel tank, Yamaha R1 is strictly a track based machine and getting the true benefits of ownership require one to have some sort of membership with a track loving racing club. Outside India, Yamaha R1 is available in three different variants. Those looking for automatic electronic adjustable suspension, better brakes and much more can go for R1M while others who are just into leisure riding can go for R1S. The former is more expensive by almost $6300 (INR 4.20 lakh lakh approx).

Yamaha R1S is priced $1700 (INR 1.14 lakh approx) lower than standard variant. The brand once launched Yamaha R1M in India but due to least demand, they had to cancel their plan of further expansion and discontinue that specific model. Design lines on all there variants stay same while shade options are specific and vary from one variant to another. Buyers of Yamaha R1 are very few in India. Not just that, complete liter class sportbike lineup has limited number of buyers in India. Majority of owners prefer lesser tempting products like Ninja 1000 and smaller bikes in India.

What is the Differences Between an Yamaha R6 and Yamaha R1?
03 January 2023 02:48
The Yamaha YZF-R6 and YZF-R1 are two of the most popular sport bikes offered by Yamaha. Both bikes offer powerful performance and dynamic styling, but there are several key differences between the two. The R6 is a 600cc bike, while the R1 is a 1000cc bike. This means the R6 is much lighter than the R1, making it easier to maneuver and allowing it to reach higher top speeds. The R6 also has a more aerodynamic shape than the R1, making it more aerodynamic and allowing it to slice through the wind more effectively. The R1 is more powerful than the R6, with a higher torque and horsepower. This makes it better for racing, as it can accelerate faster and reach higher speeds. It also has better suspension, allowing it to handle corners with more confidence. In terms of price, the R6 is typically much more affordable than the R1. This makes it a great choice for riders who want a great bike without breaking the bank. Ultimately, the Yamaha YZF-R6 and YZF-R1 are both great bikes, each with its own unique strengths and weaknesses. Riders should consider the differences between the two when deciding which bike is best for them.

The 2012 Yamaha YZF-R1 is unlike anything before. Yamaha R1 represents a paradigm shift in technology, performance and controllability among high class sport bikes. The R1 has been designed to be the “Ultimate Cornering Master 1000” of the open super sport class. We as Planet Auto recommend YZF-R1 for ultimate riding experience.
