Chassis / Suspension EXCLUSIVE ÖHLINS® ELECTRONIC RACING SUSPENSION: The R1M features highly advanced Öhlins® Electronic Racing Suspension. The Suspension Control Unit receives data from the IMU such as vehicle speed, lean angle, acceleration and brake pressure, then rapidly adjusts the front and rear damping in real time for optimum suspension performance. The system comes with several modes for street and track: automatic T-1 and T-2 Track modes feature adjustment settings that focus on specific areas, such as braking, cornering and acceleration, for streamlined tuning. R-1 Road simplifies these settings for street-focused riding, and three manual modes remain for conventional suspension tuning with fixed damping. DELTABOX® FRAME: The slim aluminum Deltabox® frame, magnesium subframe and polished aluminum swingarm contribute to a light weight and compact chassis design, with overall geometry refined on racetracks around the world. The rigid motor mounts use the engine as a stressed member of the frame for optimal rigidity balance and great cornering performance on the race track. ALUMINUM FUEL TANK: The hand-polished aluminum fuel tank weighs in at a full 3.5 pounds less than a comparable steel tank, further reducing overall weight, and is sculpted to give riders a good lower body connection to the machine. POWERFUL, CONTROLLABLE BRAKES: The track developed racing ABS and Unified Braking System provide maximum braking performance. UBS inhibits unwanted rear-end motion during braking by activating the rear brake when the front brake is applied, with force distribution based on the bike’s attitude and lean angle. 4-piston radial mounted front calipers ride on big 320mm rotors for excellent stopping power. RACE-READY MAGNESIUM WHEELS: 10-spoke cast magnesium wheels significantly lower rotational mass compared to conventional aluminum alloy rims, reducing unsprung weight for quick direction changes and responsive handling.
