Yamaha YZF-R1 1000 2013

Jostled by the new generation of hypersport, BMW S 1000 RR, Kawasaki ZX-10 R and Aprilia RSV-4 in the lead, the Yamaha R1 could no longer be satisfied with its cross-plane rigging to bang its fist on the table of the performance.
OK, this generation of R1 gave the title of WSBK world champion to Ben Spies; Certainly, its traction and its burning twin noise have charmed more than one pilot; okay, his name always slams like a summons of sportiness. But at the end of 2011, she no longer had the means to be a scarecrow in the hypersports clan..

The 2012/2013 version was therefore eagerly awaited. But obviously, the revolution will not be for now. This YZF 1000 upgrades its technology by adopting in turn an anti-skid, called TCS. Its traction control uses speed sensors located on the front and rear wheels. When the rear wheel begins to slip, the control unit modifies the injection, throttle opening and ignition to calm the beast. The system can be configured in six positions, plus, for the brave, an off mode. With the three on-board maps, the 2013 R1 offers pilots twenty-one electronic adjustment configurations.

The aesthetic is itself so little retouched that it would take computer graphics skills to see the differences. The R1 retains this distinctive silhouette, arousing both admiration and questioning. She knows how to charm and intimidate with his gaze, especially since it frowns more finely. The position lights are now LED, extended by a comma of reflective coating; enough to give her tears of light. The lower fairing is revised (ah good?), The new upper triple tree is inspired by MotoGP, and the thermal exhaust guards are redesigned. As for the colors, they hesitate between the classic and the sad. But where has the blue-white racing Yamaha gone? Absent? Replaced by a new Race-Blu dress, mix of Yamaha Blue and Matt Gray.

In the bowels, we find the irregular 4 cylinders of 998 cm3 – Let us recall its mode of operation: the ballet in the cylinders is characterized by an asynchronous ignition sequence 270º – 180º – 90º – 180º (180 ° all the time in a standard 4 legs). This so-called cross-plane setting smoothes the torque and offers more traction. Not to mention a soundtrack close to a growling V4, ready to give you goosebumps. Did the boulder gain horses in this R1 cross-plane phase 2? What a slab. The canassons are still 182 in full. This is more than enough to scare you on the open road, and there is enough to line up some fiery lap times on the circuit. But faced with the 200 nags of the Kawasaki ZX-10 R and BMW S 1000 RR, the R1 is missing under the wrist.
The on-board ECU is optimized and the injection retains the choice of three maps, reprogrammed for more flexibility, better re-acceleration and more watts at mid-range.

New R1, new parts. With, among other things, new redesigned footrests now equipped with non-slip cast aluminum projections that improve the feel, hexagonal muffler tips, plus the triple tree and the already mentioned LED lights.

Okay, let’s take stock: cross-plane engine, traction control, variable-height intake horns, choice of maps, 6-piston radial brake calipers. The 2013 YZF-R1 is loaded with technology. A real homing missile, forged in the envy of the circuit. But the problem is that the competition is as sharp as it is, the power in addition.
