In 2015, when the DOHC inline-four 998 cc Yamaha R1 was updated, reviewers proclaimed it with words like “best ever” and “pinnacle of motorcycling.” The R1 was very good; the R1M was better.

The R1M jettisoned the standard model’s KYB suspension for Öhlins Electronic Racing Suspension (ERS), a fork and shock similar to what’s found on Ducati’s 1299 Panigale. With this suspension, Öhlins and Yamaha have essentially divided the riding into different events instead of trying to look every millisecond at what the chassis is doing and makes the necessary adjustments to the damping to provide the optimum performance for that situation.

Yamaha also stiffened the front spring rate by 16 percent and the rear spring rate by 2 percent. The R1M came standard with Yamaha’s Communication Control Unit (CCU), which enables you to communicate with the bike through a tablet or smartphone app and upload your settings for the various rider aids, opening the door to Yamaha’s Y-TRAC data-logging program. A total of 21 different channels are available for analyzing things like throttle opening, speed, lean angle, brake pressure, engine rpm, and more. Yamaha sharpened the R1M’s appeal with a dose of carbon fiber on the front fender, headlight cowling, side fairing, and passenger seat cowl, along with a polished swing arm and hand buffed polished aluminum tank.

This example is VIN: JYARN40Y9GA000150, Engine #: N527E-004265. The seller is the original owner.
