Tips For Riding in the Rain

2008 Yamaha YZF-R1

Yamaha’s homepage features details on the 2008 YZF-R1, described as “the most advanced Open-class production motorcycle ever built”. Riders love the YZF-R1. Why? Because it’s fast…bug-smearing fast. And the 2008 version has some advances that Yamaha thinks will make it even better..

Other details about the YZF-R1 from the Yamaha site…

  • The YZF-R1 uses the YCC-T fly-by-wire throttle system for flawless response under all conditions.
  • Inline four-cylinder engine is the most powerful, tractable R1 powerplant ever, thanks partially to the world’s first electronic variable-length intake funnel system.
  • Lay-down-design cylinder head optimizes weight distribution, straightens intake tracts for improved cylinder filling and allows frame to pass over instead of around the engine for great strength and a narrow chassis.
  • A Deltabox frame tuned for optimal flex carries the lay-down four-cylinder stressed-member style for great handling an efficient aerodynamic penetration. A truss-type swingarm is extremely strong and tuned for optimal traction and feedback.
