Inspired by the most sought after MotoGP R1 & R1M innovations, Yamaha YZF R1S was developed with lower price yet carries the same power plant and hardware from R1 series. This bike is ultimately designed to dominate streets and highways with unmatched usability and value. Few tweaks are made on this bike to improve its overall look, ability and power thus making it the riders number one choice of motorcycle. Its 998cc inline-four liquid cooled engine has revised cross plane crank which utilizes steel conventional rods now and a rigid aluminum Deltabox frame that provides optimum balance. It uses five-spoke aluminum wheels replacing the lightweight multi spoke magnesium wheel of R1. With such changes, the R1S is 9 lbs. heavier than the R1 claimed weight. Similar to the other R1 models, R1s has an inspired MotoGP performance built from modern sport technology. Yamaha didn’t mentioned about the horsepower however it has maximum claimed torque of 11.5 kg-m (83.2 ft-lbs.) @ 11,500 rpm allowing riders to go beyond their comfort zone with pure confidence and comfort. R1S features all the Yamaha Ride Control (YRC) except for the quick shift system and still the bike is controllable and enjoyable to ride around town. When it comes to chassis, Yamaha YZF R1S contained fully adjustable front and rear suspension able to match any riding style and road conditions. It is also equipped with ABS that delivers surprisingly strong braking power yet easy to control with good level feedback. R1S is available in the market in two colors: Matte Metallic Gray and Bluish Pearl White.

Yamaha YZF R1S review
We went to test the Yamaha YZF R1S with reviews in mind.
R1S is available in light and dark version. Strikingly attractive fairings and windscreen gives the bike sporty image plus excellent aerodynamics. Its unique look is characterized by LED headlights, positioned lights and turn signals that provides optimum illumination during night rides with reduce power consumption. Going to the instrumentation, it has digital panels with TFT display offering two modes: street and track enabling riders to measure their milestones and performance improvement.
Yamaha YZF R1S has no recorded power output but its high revving power which is more likely usable on the track is closely similar to R1. However the R1S peak power is somewhat lower, because it’s slightly heavier engine keep it from revving as highly as the standard R1 bike. And when it comes to torque, the R1Ss peak torque looks impressive, better than the R1M’s up to the high revs. With power not higher than the R1 and torque more than the R1M, R1S is in between when it comes to performance. It is geared up with track-ready controls, adjustable suspension, strong brakes, decent chassis and extensive capabilities – all with lower retail price.
Yamaha YZF R1S is the best choice of riders who are looking for a sportsbike essentially for day-to-day commuting and canyon carving. On the other hand riders who want to explore tracks during the weekends may also appreciate its max lean angle and high torque with guaranteed satisfaction.
