Yamaha says its first-come, first-served approach means anyone with an interest in buying the YZF-R1M should do so quickly to avoid disappointment.

How has the Yamaha MotoGP bike inspired the YZF-R1M?

Available in a single colour option only – Silver Blu Carbon – Yamaha says the YZF-R1M represents the closest silhouette to the firm’s YZR-M1 MotoGP machine as campaigned by Valentino Rossi and Maverick Vinales.

Technological inspirations include an advanced CCU Communication Control Unit and Ohlins Electronic Racing Suspension (ERS). It has also gained some styling cues from the race-winning MotoGP machine, though the external updates have been generally kept to a nip-and-tuck rather than an overhaul.

What else do you receive when you buy a Yamaha YZF-R1M?

Anyone who purchases the YZF-R1M will be invited to participate in an exclusive Yamaha Racing Experience taking place at Mugello (Italy) and Le Mans (France) during the spring of 2020.

The Yamaha Racing Experience sees YZF-R1M owners from across Europe come together to experience the machine’s sporting roots and exploit its full potential on some of the world’s foremost MotoGP circuits.  

As well as taking part in riding sessions you'll also be invited to participate in a series of workshops that will explain the bike's sophisticated electronic control technology and focus on how to personalise your machine's settings. 

By understanding machine set-up you will be able to take full advantage of the YZF-R1M's outstanding engine and chassis performance, and discover your real potential on the track.
