R1 GYTR PRO 25th
Anniversary Limited Edition
The Ultimate Track Weapon
The Ultimate Track Weapon
The R1 GYTR PRO 25th Anniversary Limited Edition is the Ultimate Track Weapon; presenting a rare and exclusive opportunity to experience world championship winning performance with a machine built to a specification as close to a world superbike racer as it is possible to get.
Developed by the same Yamaha Motor Research and Development Europe (YMRE) racing engineers responsible for the World Championship winning R1 WorldSBK machine, the range of GYTR PRO performance parts makes WorldSBK performance available to Yamaha customers for the first time.
The range of GYTR PRO performance parts for the R1 includes but is not limited to an ultra-strong and lightweight carbon rear subframe that has been designed to accommodate both a modified fuel tank with a lower centre of gravity and the Magneti Marelli ECU. Öhlins FGR front forks and a TTX rear shock with pneumatic preload adjuster offer more predicable handling and the same level of suspension adjustment available to Yamaha’s professional road racers. An underslung swingarm, developed specifically for Yamaha’s WorldSBK race program, improves maximum lean angle and rear grip, while Brembo braking components front and rear provide the ultimate stopping power. The carbon fibre bodywork is ultra-strong, lightweight and has been designed together with the screen to offer optimal aerodynamic performance.
Also available is a GYTR PRO Electronic System (GPES) module, a state-of-the-art package for engine control and data acquisition developed by YMRE in WorldSBK and the FIM Endurance World Championship. The GPES features the most up-to-date electronic software rider aids, such as anti-wheelie, launch control, engine braking management, adjustable fuelling, and traction control, and is supplied with a ready-to-go base setting that provides an excellent starting point for finetuning on track.
Creating such a range of unique performance parts has taken years of development at the very highest level, with Yamaha WorldSBK riders Toprak Razgatlıoğlu and Andrea Locatelli, along with test rider Niccolò Canepa, all playing crucial roles in the development process. Fittingly, Yamaha Ambassador, and nine-time World Champion, Valentino Rossi, was presented with an R1 equipped with a selection of GYTR PRO performance parts during the introduction of the GYTR PRO concept at EICMA.
To commemorate the 25th Anniversary of the R1, Yamaha Motor Europe has commissioned an exclusive run of 25 R1 machines that will be hand built from the chassis up and will feature the full range of GYTR PRO performance parts. The R1 GYTR PRO 25th Anniversary will be assembled exclusively by experienced technicians in one of the the 25 GYTR PRO Shops across Europe and will be immediately identifiable as the ultimate track day tool courtesy of the special commemorative livery adorning the race developed carbon fibre bodywork.
The R1 GYTR PRO 25th Anniversary, which boasts a specification as close to that of Yamaha’s world championship race bikes as it is possible to get, is only available to order online, with customers also able to specify at which GYTR Pro Shop the bike will be prepared to their exact requirements.
To ensure that they can fully realise the incredible potential of their R1 GYTR PRO 25th Anniversary machines, each of the 25 owners will be invited to Yamaha Racing Experience to spend a day at a race circuit with a team of dedicated Yamaha technicians. After in-depth presentation of the settings options of their bike, owners will be run through the same process that Yamaha’s World championship teams use with riders such as Toprak Razgatlıoğlu or Andrea Locatelli, to fine tune the settings of the bike to match their specific riding style.
Limited to just 25 units, the R1 GYTR PRO 25th Anniversary Limited Edition is finished with the stunning anniversary livery celebrating 25 years of the R1. The combination of the exclusive race proven specification and the technical expertise available through Yamaha’s GYTR PRO Shops provides a unique opportunity for you to own what is, without doubt, the ultimate Yamaha racing machine.
