Yamaha Motor unveiled its new flagship YZF-R1 and high-end YZF-R1M supersport motorbikes at the 03 November press event of the EICMA international motorcycle show in Milan, Italy, which runs from 4 to 9 November 2014.

 

The all-new 2015 YZF-R1 and YZF-R1M Supersport motorbikes feature an entirely new 998 cubic-centimeter liquid-cooled, in-line four-cylinder engine with a crossplane crankshaft, are based on Yamaha’s ‘High Tech Armed Pure Sport’ concept of an all-out supersport model fully armed with advanced technology.

Along with an impressive 200hp, these 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 two models will be released in Europe in early March 2015 and later in North America.
