Yamaha's launches two new bikes -YZF-R1M and YZF-R1

Yamaha Motor India Sales Pvt. Ltd has launched the new YZF-R1M along with new colour variants of the YZF-R1. The YZF-R1M has been priced at Rs 29.43 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi) while the YZF-R1 has been priced at Rs 22.34 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
The YZF-R1M is available in a shade named Bluish White Metallic 2 and the YZF-R1 is available in two new colours - Deep purplish blue metallic C and Vivid Red Cocktail 1. The new bikes  are based on Yamaha’s "High Tech Armed Pure Sport" concept of an all-out supersport model fully armed with advanced technology.                                                                   
The R1’s connecting rods are titanium, and their big ends are fracture-split, which assures a perfect circle. The cylinder head, with reshaped ports and larger valves (33mm intakes, 26.5mm exhausts), has 13.0:1 compression, and its narrower valve angle allows for a more compact pent-roof combustion chamber. Lightweight forged aluminum pistons are also part of the R1 recipe. The 2015 R1 is the first Yamaha supersport model with ABS and Unified Braking.

The R1M, a limited-edition R1 for riders or professional teams who plan to go racing, essentially a homologation special in the spirit of the YZF-R7 of 1999. To that end, this special R1M has Electronic Racing Suspension (ERS) from Öhlins, carbon-fiber bodywork, a Communication Control Unit (a data logger) and stickier Bridgestones .One of Yamaha’s main design thrusts was to increase air intake volume while reducing power losses.
This new engine achieves maximum power of 200PS, an increase of approximately 18PS over the current R1 model. Yamaha Motor's engineers implemented weight reduction technology throughout the new model to lighten it by approximately 4kg. In addition, the engine width is reduced by 34mm.The high-end YZF-R1M also boasts an electronically controlled Ohlins suspension, lightweight carbon fairing and a digital interface that records valuable racing information.

The new bikes are the world’s first two commercial motorcycles with a 6-axis position sensor that detects 3-axis angular velocity and 3-axis acceleration. The ECU is programmed with five different types of control systems.

The full screen of the TFT LCD digital meter created a "bar display tachometer", accelerometer and brake pressure displays etc. that give a similar visual impression to analog meters. The rider can select from two different display modes: "Street", which is tailored to travel on public roads, and "Track" which prioritizes the information displays required for race and circuit riding.

Based on the “Speed Racer” concept, the new models have a light, slim, and compact look. The new fairing shape features the cross-layered wing – an aerodynamic characteristic which allows airflow to cross between the inside and outside of the fairing. The front face of the new models inherits the twin-headlight configuration found in the R-series of the past, yet it bears a strong resemblance to YZR-M1.

The new YZF-R1M and YZF-R1 will compete against the recently launched Kawasaki Ninja H2 and Ducati 1299 Panigale in India.
