Pros / Cons

  • Very fast, powerful, comfortable for a sport bike, suspension, brakes, handling, stability, looks

What Is It?

The theme behind the third generation R1 was handling, specifically the power of a litre bike with the handling of a 600. The liquid cooled 998cc four cylinder engine carried over from the 2004-2006 model however 5 down to 4 valves/cylinder design and changes to the compression ratio raised the power to 180bhp at 12,500rpm.

  • Deltabox twin spar Aluminium frame

  • Yamaha Chip Controlled Intake (YCC-I)
  • Dual Titanium under seat exhaust system
  • Slipper clutch

There was a new frame, swingarm and new front forks while improved mid range power was kept in check with new six piston calipers up front. Elsewhere new ride-by-wire technology was introduced from the 2006 YZF-R6.

  • 2007: Black, blue/silver/grey, red/white/black, black
