2013 Yamaha YZF-R1 Specs and Price - The new 2013 Yamaha YZF-R1 is equipped with a fairing more aggressive with new eyes catch the LED lights that make it sharper, more recently, Yamaha bikes have a strong body type motorcycle in the world. The 2013 YZF-R1 MotoGP new styles are inspired by a clamp light above three, a unique addition to the revolutionary cross plane engine sounds. R1 is the world’s most advanced Open-class production motorcycle.

The 2013 Yamaha YZF-R1 with a 998cc engine, DOHC, 16-valve, liquid-cooled, 40 degree tilt, in line four cylinder engine with a crankshaft crossplane style, 4-valve cylinder head design is equipped with a compact combustion chamber that utilizes lightweight. The new 2013 Yamaha YZF-R1 ECU settings provide excellent drivability during acceleration of low and medium rpm. The advantages of the new LED lights enhance the unique style that is owned by the YZF-R1. 2013 Yamaha YZF-R1 offers a significant level of power and performance in traveling. Yamaha R1 was in the can at a price of $ 14,490. Traction control system that makes the rider with a good easy to maneuver. In addition, the traction control can help in reducing tire wear due to less wheel spin, Coupled with the three D-Mode electronic throttle control response, the rider has 21 different options available to customize the 2013 Yamaha YZF-R1 for their riding preferences.

The 2013 Yamaha YZF-R1 It keeps all the advantages of the technology developed for its predecessor YCC-T which can produce instant throttle. Fuel injection system provides optimum air / fuel mixture for maximum power and smooth throttle response. Controlled-Fill frame behind the lightweight die-cast magnesium, contributing the optimum mass centralization. Linkage and rear shock adopts bottom for optimum suspension characteristics. The sound of the YZF-R1 supersport unlike other four-cylinder inline production.

The engineering goal for the R1 is controllability not just an increase in horsepower. If that was the case, we could have simply increased the power output of the existing engine design resulting in a peaky, hard to use power band. The 4-valve cylinder head design features a compact combustion chamber that utilizes lightweight, trick, titanium valves on the intake side. The 4-valve design maximizes breathing efficiency and overall engine performance. The titanium intake valves are 31mm in diameter while the steel exhaust valves are 25mm in diameter. Lightweight yet super strong VX alloy valve springs control valve movement. Steep valve angles, 11.5 degrees on the intake side and 12.5 degrees on the exhaust produce a compact combustion chamber.

The lightweight titanium intake valves reduce the reciprocating weight of the intake valves allowing for higher rpms without the concern of valve float. The use of lightweight “Ti” valves has allowed the engineers at Yamaha to use a 4-valve format. In the past, the use of 5 smaller valves allowed a higher rpm limit since each of the “smaller” valves was relatively light. The use of light weight titanium now means the engineers no longer have to use the 5-valve design to achieve the same high rpms. Combustion chambers have been optimized for maximum engine performance. The compression ratio is 12.7:1. Compact automatic cam chain tensioner reduces both maintenance and mechanical engine noise. Short skirt, forged aluminium pistons offer light weight, fast throttle response and great reliability.

Crossplane crankshaft features 36mm journals for increased strength, while the inertial moment of the crank has been increased by 20% versus the last generation R1. Connecting rods are carburized and use a nut less design. The lower end “cap” of the rod is made from the same piece of material as the upper portion and is cracked away in a process known as “fracture splitting”. This process aids true big end roundness and greater precision in con rod dimensions. Ceramic composite cylinder “bores” are a “liner less” design with the ceramic coating applied directly to the aluminium block to ensure uniform heat dissipation for consistent power delivery, reduced oil consumption, reduced friction and reduced weight. Closed deck cylinder design allows the cylinders to be spaced more closely together, allowing a narrower engine.

The cylinder block is a stand-alone piece (not integrated into the upper crank case). The benefit is reduced weight and a less tall engine which lowers the centre of gravity. A “coupling force balancer” is used to quell engine vibration for excellent rider comfort. Compact ACM (alternator) is mounted directly to the crankshaft. The compact ACM uses rare earth magnets which produce more power for a given size than conventional magnets, therefore reducing size and weight. Revised Mikuni fuel injection system features twin injectors (one set of primary & one set of secondary injectors). This type of twin injector system is also used on our M1 MotoGP race bike and the R6. One set of injectors (primary) are located in the 45mm throttle bodies while the secondary injectors are located in the air box very near the computer controlled intake funnels. The revised primary injectors utilize 4 spray holes to maximize the fuel atomization process. The secondary injectors, located inside the air box, begin to function at mid rpms onwards to supply more fuel as required.

Yamaha’s exclusive YCC-I electric-control servo motor-driven variable intake funnel system is a world’s 1st on a production motorcycle and works in conjunction with Yamaha’s fly-by-wire technology and FI Systems.

2013 Yamaha YZF-R1 Chip Control Throttle (YCC-T) electronically controls the throttle valves for outstanding response and improved controllability at all rpms. The YCC-T is used to provide even more control of the intake air volume for smoother torque character. Similar to the R6 design, the YCC-T features 3 – ECU’s inside the main ECU to control ignition, fuel injection and the YCC-T. This special ECU is capable of responding to changes at a speed of 1000th of a second.
