First seen on Yamaha’s early GP bikes,
the R1 World GP 60th Anniversary’s iconic
red “speed block” design on a pure-white
bodywork is amongst the most famous
and best-loved graphics of all time. The
thick red stripe running along the top of
the tank and tail captures the spirit of
the pioneering factory racers – while the
gold-coloured wheels and yellow front
number plate are coming straight from
The R1 World GP 60th Anniversary looks
ultra-sharp with its M1-style cowling and
fully integrated fairing that give the bike
an aggressive race-developed pro le. By
enabling you to tuck in close to the bike,
this lightweight bodywork achieves the
highest levels of aerodynamic efficiency
for outstanding high-speed performance.
The R1 World GP 60th Anniversary’s 998cc
EU5 engine features a crossplane crankshaft
with an uneven 270°-180 -90°-180° ring
sequence that delivers strong, linear torque.
And the high-efficiency intake system along
with specially designed finger-follower
rocker arms contribute towards the
remarkable high rpm performance of this
race developed engine.
