- Cutting-edge MotoGP®-Derived Crossplane Crankshaft Engine
The 2016 YZF-R1S™ features a lightweight and compact crossplane-crankshaft, inline-four-cylinder, 998cc high output engine, producing excellent power and a strong pulse of linear torque for stunning performance.
- Class-leading Electronics Package
The YZF-R1S features an advanced MotoGP®-inspired electronics package: a suite of inter-related technologies, enabling the rider to enjoy the fullest range of performance with great comfort, control, and ease of operation.
- MotoGP®-level Controllability
Featuring Yamaha’s six-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), the 2016 R1S represents the state-of-the-art in digital riding control, where all riders can experience total 3D controllability.
- Informed Systems
The IMU consists of a gyro sensor that measures pitch, roll, and yaw, as well as an accelerometer, or G-sensor, that measures acceleration in the fore-aft, up-down, and right-left directions… all at a rate of 125 calculations per second. By calculating each signal, the IMU finds the precise vehicle position and movement, and communicates it to the ECU, enabling it to control the bike’s systems.
- Digital Rider Aids
The 2016 R1S is equipped with banking-sensitive Traction Control, as well as Slide Control, Wheel Lift Control, Launch Control, ABS, a Unified Braking System, and more. The all-new R1S gives street riders an amazing level of rider-adaptive performance.
- Deltabox® Frame
The advanced aluminum Deltabox® frame uses the engine as a stressed member of the chassis and is designed to provide optimum longitudinal, lateral and torsional rigidity.
- Compact Exhaust System
A midship exhaust system features a titanium muffler and is positioned low, in the middle of the chassis, for improved mass centralization.
- MotoGP® Styling
The styling on the R1S is shared with the YZF-R1M® and YZF-R1® and inspired by the YZR-M1™, purposely sculpted for maximum aerodynamic efficiency.
