MotoAmerica - Yamaha YZF-R1

The 2019 Monster Energy Factory Yamaha Racing YZF R1 returns to MotoAmerica and the Superbike class, proudly displaying the #1 plate for the eighth time in the past nine years!

Beginning as a production unit, and competing in a class where engine rules are heavily regulated, the Yamaha YZF R1 has proven to be a high performance machine from both an engine and handling perspective. While pistons, rods, and valves must remain in standard form, camshaft profiles and cylinder head decking and porting is open for modification. Electronics are also allowed to be changed from production form, to allow precise adjustment to the fuel and spark maps, performance strategies, and for data collection purposes. Every part on the 2019 Yamaha YZF R1 Superbike is scrutinized for increased performance and reduced weight to ensure that the minimum weight of 370 lbs. is achieved. With this attention to detail, the 2019 Yamaha R1 Superbike is sure to challenge for yet another MotoAmerica Championship..
