2015 Yamaha R1 launched in the UAE


Yamaha launched the 2015 R1 recently in the UAE, at an event held at the Dubai Autodrome. Two-time MotoGP Champion and Yamaha racing team rider Jorge Lorenzo was present during the unveiling.

The 2015 Yamaha R1 gets a 998cc 4-cylinder 4-valve engine. Maximum power output is about 198 hp. Yamaha claims everything is different about the new R1 as they had agreed from the beginning of the project that everything should be developed from scratch.

Yamaha will also produce a special R1 edition aimed at professional teams and more experienced riders. It features more sophisticated equipment such as Electronic Racing Suspension (ERS), carbon-fibre bodywork, a Communication Control Unit (CCU) and high-specification Bridgestone tyres. The YZF-R1M will be produced only in limited numbers.

  2. Hey Mash,
    It feels awesome that you have started publishing motorcycle news finally!! I am an avid biker and it feels promising to get news from a website like yours which I follow for car related news.
