By totalmotorcycle 2015 #Yamaha #YZF-R1M – The Year of The One
The much anticipated arrival of the all-new YZF-R1 at the EICMA Motorcycle show in November last year was the beginning of a new chapter in the Supersport world. Now in 2015 the next steps are being taken to make this the year of the YZF-R1. Last week near Milan in Italy Yamaha’s Official Racing Teams were launched to bring this next generation Superbike to the racetrack in both national and international competition.
To follow this, next week at Eastern Creek in Sydney, Australia, the world’s motoring press will get their first eagerly awaited chance to test the technologically advanced machine in its native surroundings, the racetrack!
In anticipation of the next steps of this journey Yamaha have released two short film clips. One takes you back to the beginning of this journey to share in the design process that brought us here, the other is an exhilarating lap of the Sugo circuit onboard the R1, an opportunity to experience the impressive technology of the machine at work.
Please enjoy as the Japanese engineers and designers explain how they created the all-new YZF-R1, then take a hot lap and see for yourself their vision in action.
