Improvements in every significant area
In our quest to make the best even better we have looked at every single component on the R1, and if an improvement could be made, we’ve made it.
We’ve modified the design of everything from the engine, fairing, headlights, seat and tail through to the front and rear suspension, subframe, transmission and braking system.
Over 150 component changes for 2000!
For 2000, the flagship of the YZF-R Series has undergone a major redesign of over 150 components, a move that will ensure that the new-generation R1 reinforces its position as the ultimate large-capacity supersport machine.
No compromise then, no compromise now!
Of the many words used to describe the R1, perhaps the two that best capture the essential spirit of this ground-breaking supersport are ‘no compromise’.
By following this sharply focused approach to motorcycle design, the YZF-R Series development team has been able to create a new-generation R1 that has been designed to offer today’s supersport rider an even more exhilarating high-performance experience.
Lighter for 2000
Lighter and faster than its legendary predecessor – and featuring a wide range of new high-tech engine and chassis components – the new-generation R1 has been developed with the same no-compromise philosophy that made the original R1 the most respected large-capacity supersport on the street.
For 2000, the new-generation R1 has three figures that say it all.
They are 150hp, 385 lbs, 1395mm.
