2022 Yamaha YZF R1M
M1-inspired carbon bodywork
The R1M comes with a radical factory-bike look inspired by the race-winning Yamaha
M1 MotoGP bike. The aggressive front cowl and screen give a low frontal area for
minimal drag, while the integrated fairing flows seamlessly into the fuel tank sides
to give a tight tuck-in position for the most efficient aerodynamics.
Öhlins Electronic Racing
The Öhlins Electronic Racing Suspension (ERS) is the most sophisticated
suspension system available on a Yamaha production. Its advanced
software enables you to corner, brake and accelerate more efficiently, and its userfriendly interface allows you to make rapid suspension setting changes to suit different tracks and surface conditions.
Öhlins NPX anti-cavitation gas forks
For enhanced surface feedback with more consistent damping performance, the R1M is
equipped with high-tech Öhlins NPX gas forks. A small gas chamber in the fork axle
brackets exerts 0.6 Mpa of internal pressure to reduce cavitation on the rebound stroke.
This enables the damping system to work more effectively, giving you an accurate feel with increased control.
Lightweight carbon tail
To achieve the best mass centralisation together with a low race-ready weight, the R1M features a carbon bodywork and front fender, as well as magnesium wheels, a rear frame and a titanium lower fairing cover – and the carbon tail section is the highlight of this sophisticated track bike's extremely high specification.
Engraved production number
Pride of ownership comes as standard with every R1M – after all, it's the most exclusive production Yamaha ever built. To highlight this bike's special status, it is fitted with a specially engraved plaque showing its unique production number.
Brake Control (BC) system
On the race track, you need precision control in every situation if you want to get your
lap times down. Featuring two modes, the R1M's Brake Control (BC) system analyzes
data, such as the lean angle and slipping acceleration and instantly modulates
hydraulic brake pressure, to prevent wheel lockups for a smoother and faster lap.
