2018 Yamaha YZF R1 engine
2018 Yamaha YZF-R1 is powered by a 998 cc 4-cylinder, cross plane, engine that produces a maximum power of 200 BHP without ram air pressurization. This engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The engine is derived from YZR-M1 cross plane technology, which gives an uneven 270° – 180° – 90° – 180° firing sequence for high levels of torque and outstanding traction.
