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 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..
