Poor old YAMAHA always the bridesmaid..

If this is a dupe thread I apologize.





The H2 isn't the only thing coming out believe it or not

Electronically adjustable suspension at least.

There are a base and higher spec versions are confirmed, other than Ohlins, there are few details.

http://solomoto.es/1/yamaha-r1-2015-...s#.VD_03smwSrj
What we do know:

Good bye crossplane, this bike is a 90* screamer
electronic suspensions (unknown if dynamic)
double clutch
Bosch ABS (the same as the 1190/1290 KTM)
Traction control
two models, the up model Ohlins

I never liked the cross planes, so this is a good thing all around, the Japanese not named Kawasaki are stepping up the game.

"The display shows several settings options, including: Variable ride modes (Mode A) and power settings (PWR 1), as well as traction control (TCS 3) and presumably a stability control system (SCS 3). At the top of the display screen there also appears to be quickshifter indicator (QS) and a possible suspension indicator. More obvious is the gear position indicator, digital tach and speedometer – the latter of which reaches 262 km/h (162 mph). Another intriguing addition to the display is on the right-side of the screen, which seems to be an indicator displaying weight transfer.

Hopefully the crossplane motor finds it's way into the FZ1.

All that shit....

....and no one told them that people actually LIKE analogue tachs. I've never seen one of those digitals that I was comfortable with.

I don't know why, but I'm really excited about the 2015 R1. I'm counting the days down to 11/3/14 just to see the features.

I hope one of the versions is designed to compete with the BMW HP4!

I'm looking at getting back into track days. My current track bike has carbs which I'm getting tired of dealing with. I'd like to stay with yamaha as well. If I save my money I could have this bike...
