Yamaha YZF-R1 1000 2013

Hustled by the new generation of hypersport, BMW S 1000 RR, Kawasaki ZX- 10 R and Aprilia RSV-4 at the head, Yamaha R1 could not be satisfied any more with its chock cross-country race-plane to type fist on the table of the performance.

OK, this generation of R1 offered the championship of world WSBK to Ben Spies; Admittedly, its Motricity and its burning hot noise of twin charmed more than one pilot; of the agreement, its name always flaps like a summation of sportsmanship. But at the end of 2011, she did not have any more the means of being a scarecrow in the clan of the hypersports.

The version 2012/2013 was thus expected impatiently. But obviously, the revolution will not be for immediate. This YZF 1000 upgraded its technology by adopting in its turn anti-skid, baptized TCS. Its control of traction uses velocity pickups located in the nose gear wheels and back. When the aft wheel starts to paint, the control unit modifies the injection, the opening of gases and lighting to calm the animal. The system is skeletal on six positions, more, for the courageous ones, a mold off. With the three embarked cartographies, R1 2013 proposes to the pilots twenty-and-a configurations electronic adjustments.

Esthetics as for it if little is improved which it would be necessary of the talents of computer graphics expert to see the differences. R1 preserves this so particular silhouette, causing admiration as much that the interrogation. It can charm and intimidate of its glance, the more so as this one wrinkles finely more. The sidelights to leds, are now prolonged of a coma of reflective coating; of what to give him tears of light. The lower carnage is re-examined (a good?), the new higher t-piece is inspired by MotoGP, and thermal protections of exhaust are redrawn. As for the colors, they hesitate between the classic and the sad one. But where did the blue-white racing Yamaha pass? Absent? Replaced by a new dress Race-Blu, mixture of Yamaha Blue and Matt Gray.

In the entrails, one finds the 4 cylinders irregular of 998 Cm3 – Point out his operating process: the ballet in the cylinders is characterized by an asynchronous sequence of lighting 270º – 180º – 90º – 180º (of the 180° all the time in one 4 standard legs). This chock known as cross-country race-plane stringer the couple and offers more Motricity. Not counting a soundtrack close to V4 grognor to wish, the goose flesh lends to spin you. Does the block have you it gained horses in this R1 cross-country race-plane phase 2? That flagstone. The nags are always 182 in full. It is very largely sufficient to be made fearful on opened road, and there is what to align stopwatches of fire on the circuit. But vis-a-vis the 200 nags of Kawasaki ZX- 10 R and BMW S 1000 RR, R1 miss some under the wrist.

 The ECU embarked is optimized and the injection preserves the choice of three cartographies, reprogrammed for more flexibility, a better D-acceleration and more Watts with mid–modes.

R1 news, new parts. With inter alia again footrests reconsidered and now equipped with non-skid molded aluminium projections which improve fit, of the ends of silencer of hexagonal form, plus the t-piece of fork as well as fires with leds already mentioned.

Good, let us take stock: engine with chock cross-country race-plane, control of traction, horns of admission to variable height, choice of cartographies, radial clamps of brake with 6 pistons. The YZF-R1 2013 embarks one crowned amount of technology. A true missile with a homing device, forged in the desire of the circuit. But the problem, it is that competition is as sharpened as it, the power moreover.
