Yamaha’s R1 dash simulation

Learn how to navigate that MotoGP-derived electronics package from your desktop

YAMAHA has created an online simulation of the new R1’s electronics menu, so prospective owners can learn in advanced how to navigate the options.

The simulator includes handlebar controls operated with the computer mouse, and an image of the 2015 YZF-R1’s digital dash.

By playing with the controls, users can learn how to change the settings of the complex electronics package, derived from that of the YZR-M1 raced by Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo in MotoGP

The simulator, on Yamaha’s US motorsport website, lets users change throttle maps and adjust the R1’s traction control and slide control settings. It also lets you create your own riding modes with bespoke settings.
