2019 Yamaha YZF-R1M 1000


The Yamaha R1M has become a classified vintage. Its first vintage, the 2015, was such a success that its production in limited series has evolved into a lasting endowment. Each year sees its share of R1M, however in very small proportions.

The machine is desired, and it is right as its efficiency places it among the best sports of the moment.

Like every year, very fine updating of the decoration – it knows how to hold the metallic and racing side of its color while arranging it according to the seasons. Technical changes are to the credit of Evo 2018, concerning the electronic parts. The standard shifter could only act on the upshift. Since then, it also works when downshifting, with a choice of 2 settings: mode 1 for more speed and performance – mode 2 for more fluidity. It was time to do better, because the competition (especially European) has been offering Up & Down for a long time.

One of the specificities and big added value of the R1M are its Ohlins suspensions. Semi-active please! An update changes them to the Smart EC 2 ERS version. This new system is intended to be smarter while being more dynamic, in particular thanks to the new braking, acceleration and cornering support functions. Thus adorned, the R1M “evo” offers more grip at the front, more traction and improved stability..
Even if it means touching the electronics, the engineers took the opportunity to review the engine mapping and improve the effectiveness of the anti-wheeling.

Reservations for this new cru opened on October 29, 2018, at this address: https://r1m.yamaha-motor.eu/

Genesis of the Yamaha R1-M:

With its big evolution 2015, the R1 has put the ideas in place to many competitors. The engine retains the cross-plane timing but delivers 200 horsepower. Yamaha recalibrated it a bit in 2017 to meet Euro4 standards. The Deltabox frame is unique, as are the swingarm, lightened rims, very distinctive M1 design and on-board digital technology. In this M version, we immediately distinguish a sign that does not deceive: the golden color of the suspensions.
The Ohlins ERS 2 system works with the 6-axis inertial sensor – this uses the data received to adjust the fork and shock absorber in real time. As the data is checked 125 times per second, the on-board control unit constantly knows what dynamic situation the bike is in and can thus determine the optimum compression and rebound for the suspensions. Then the servomotors act directly on the Swedish elements.

As an exclusive good tracker, the R1M is covered with a carbon trim (full fairing, front fender and seat cowl). Some parts are covered with a transparent film to clearly identify the nobility of the material, other parts are painted.
Another specificity is that the M’s tank is made of ultra-polished aluminum. Yamaha wanted to accentuate the contrast with the black frame by applying the same ultra-polished treatment to the swingarm..

As you can imagine, the R1M is not for everyone. Its equipment, its potential and its price will reserve it for experienced pilots. Already ready to race, the R1M is originally fitted with a wider rear tire than on the R1, a 200. The tires chosen, almost slick, were specially designed by Bridgestone for this model..
It invites you to snap for a while, and have a lot of fun on the circuit. And she records everything you do. Once the session is over, you can connect with the on-board control unit, installed as standard on this M, to observe and analyze your race data, such as lap times, speed, throttle opening, GPS tracking, tilt angle, etc….

R1M owners will receive an invitation to the Yamaha Racing Experience (YRE). Participants will have a rich and constructive program, with machine tuning workshops and pre-race briefings so that R1M customers can confidently use their machine and benefit from all its benefits. After these briefings, all drivers will be able to use the R1M’s state-of-the-art electronics during several circuit sessions supervised by current and former glories of the racing world..

During this course, they will also be able to talk to Yamaha Racing experts on technical subjects. Technicians from the tire, suspension and clothing sectors will also be available to provide advice..

With this R1M, the trackers will have something to have fun. The bleeding ones will regret not having a small dose of extra horses, just to mark the exclusive side even more. And we wonder why this version with top suspensions and a carbon trim weighs a kilo more than the standard R1 ?!?
Let’s be demanding and realize: what do we have in these 201 kilos? A near-track grinding wheel, driven Ohlins, 200 horsepower, titanium connecting rods, a shifter, traction control assisted by rear tire slip control, anti-wheeling, assistance mode at the start, a Full ABS, 4 maps and 4 driving modes, a full digital dashboard with two types of display (road or track), telemetry and race tires. To wonder if it is the pilot who wants the R1 or the other way around ?!?
