Ever thought how hard it would be to make a sequel to a legend? Your design would have to reiterate the original mission statement, then forge a bold and captivating new personality (while still respecting certain styling expectations the market will have). You’d have to eclipse all previous parameters of performance, and finally, get these goals to crystallise into a single design so expertly as to create a motorcycle the likes of which the world has never seen – like the 200ps, 166 Nm Intelligent Monster you see here. A muscle bike of immense presence and value, with awesome acceleration and incredible control, VMAX will provide a select few riders with sensations and emotions that others can merely dream about.
Since the original YZF-R1 was released into an awe-struck marketplace, Yamaha’s flagship 1000cc model has established a reputation as being one of the most innovative and exciting motorcycles in the large-capacity supersport class. For 2009 that outstanding reputation is sure to be further reinforced.
Featuring an all-new 998cc engine whose design, feel and character has been influenced by Rossi’s championship winning M1, the new high-tech R1 powerplant is closely linked to our Moto GP bike. In fact the 2009 model R1 engine has benefited from more Moto GP developed technology than any other in its long and prestigious history.
In addition, the completely redesigned aluminium Deltabox chassis and aggressive new styling, give the new-generation YZF-R1 a radical new look and bring innovative technology to the class. In the same way that the original YZF-R1 threw the rule book out of the window, this revolutionary new model sets a new benchmark for the super-competitive 1000cc supersport category.
