Yamaha’s first international road race was at the French GP back in May 1961. The first race win came in 1963. And by 1964 Yamaha had claimed its first World Championship. Since then, the factory’s race bikes have powered to more than 500 Grand Prix wins. The special World GP 60th Anniversary livery is marking 60 years of Yamaha competing at the highest level of motorcycle racing.
The R1 World GP 60th Anniversary features iconic red ‘speed block’ graphics and a white fairing – combined with a 60th anniversary emblem, yellow front plate and golden wheels – that are inspired by Yamaha’s original factory race bikes that were taken to victory by legendary riders including Read, Saarinen, Agostini and Roberts. They’re an integral part of Yamaha’s history. And by riding the R1 World GP 60th Anniversary you can be a part of this very special celebration.
To mark the 60th anniversary of the company’s first Grand Prix race, Yamaha has designed a special look for the R-Series line. Finished in one of the most famous and best-loved historic racing colour schemes, the R1 World GP 60th Anniversary is the ultimate tribute to Yamaha’s historic race bikes.
First seen on Yamaha’s early GP bikes, the R1 World GP 60th Anniversary’s iconic red ‘speed block’ design on a pure white bodywork is amongst the most famous and best-loved graphics of all time. The thick red stripe running along the top of the tank and tail captures the spirit of the pioneering factory racers – while the gold-coloured wheels and yellow front number plate are coming straight from the racetrack.
The R1 World GP 60th Anniversary looks ultra-sharp with its M1-style cowling and fully integrated fairing that give the bike an aggressive race-developed profile. By enabling you to tuck in close to the bike, this lightweight bodywork achieves the highest levels of aerodynamic efficiency for outstanding high-speed performance.
The R1 World GP 60th Anniversary's 998cc EU5 engine features a crossplane crankshaft with an uneven 270°-180 -90°-180° firing sequence that delivers strong, linear torque. And the high-efficiency intake system along with specially designed finger-follower rocker arms contribute towards the remarkable high rpm performance of this race developed engine.
The R1 World GP 60th Anniversary is equipped with high-specification 43mm KYB forks featuring laminated type damping valves. Together with the advanced rear shock this suspension system gives you a sensation of being connected directly to the road surface, making the R1 WGP feel as if it is an extension of your body.
Technology is transforming the way we ride, and the latest R1 World GP 60th Anniversary features no fewer than seven electronic control systems. Featuring two modes, the Brake Control (BC) system analyses data such as lean angle and slipping acceleration and modulates hydraulic brake pressure to prevent wheel lock ups.
Control is everything when you're on the street or track, and the Engine Brake Management (EBM) system allows you to adjust engine braking force. Using data from various sensors, the EBM adjusts throttle opening, ignition timing and fuel injection volume to give you a choice of three engine braking modes to suit different riding situations.
The aggressive face of the R1 World GP 60th Anniversary features LED headlights that project a sharp and menacing look. And the M1-style cowling is also fitted with compact position lights that reinforce the bike's street presence and underline its pure race-bred design.
The Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle (YCC-T) is activated by a high-tech twistgrip assembly that gives a natural feeling for precise control. Featuring a spring, slider and gear that give a smooth and progressive feel, the lightweight ride-by-wire APSG (Accelerator Position Sensor Grip) twistgrip gives instant throttle response.
By using data from a wide range of sensors, the R1 World GP 60th Anniversary's Launch Control System (LCS) gives you a high level of control during racing starts. For the fastest and most aggressive launches, LCS1 mode is programmed to activate at 9000rpm with a throttle opening of 41 degrees.
The R1 World GP 60th Anniversary’s dual 320mm front discs with monobloc calipers are renowned for their remarkable braking feel and performance. And the brake pads are equipped with a high friction material that delivers powerful stopping, allowing you to explore the full potential of this legendary supersport.
Whether you're accelerating aggressively, braking hard or banking over at full lean angle, you need to have total confidence in your tyres. Featuring a race-developed pattern together with a special compound, the Bridgestone Battlax Racing Street RS11 tyres – with a 190-section rear – give you the highest levels of traction combined with outstanding feel.
Developed using race-proven technology and manufactured using the most sophisticated components and lightweight materials including titanium and magnesium, the R1 World GP 60th Anniversary is a high-quality motorcycle that commands the utmost respect and provides a genuine pride of ownership. This is what R/World is all about.
