The 2011 R1 … Yamaha's technical "Tour de Force."
The Bark is bad. The bite is badder.
Forget everything you ever knew about the supersport litre class. The all new 2011 Yamaha YZF-R1 is unlike anything before. That's because it's the world's first production motorcycle with a crossplane crankshaft. The result? Incredibly smooth power delivery and outrageous torque for a rush like you've never experienced.
