The Yamaha YZF-R1M online application system is now live – so, if you’ve got just shy of £20,000 sat in the bank, this is your chance to put your name down for a new YZF-R1M for 2018.  

Inspired by the MotoGP-winning YZR-M1 machinery made famous by Valentino Rossi and Maverick Viñales, the high specification YZF-R1M offers private riders and race teams the opportunity to experience the latest factory bike technology for themselves.


The 2018 YZF-R1M is equipped with the latest Smart EC 2 ERS; the most sophisticated suspension system ever developed by Öhlins for a production motorcycle. The new system offers increased intelligence for more precise suspension dynamics when attacking the track, especially with the new brake support, acceleration support and corner support functions helping out too.

It’s also equipped with a more sophisticated Quickshift System that is designed to ensure reliable and quick gearshifts without engaging the clutch, in addition to an improved QSS that features a new downshifting system.

Plus, all customers who purchase the 2018 YZF-R1M are also invited to attend the exclusive Yamaha Racing Experience, which will take place during the Summer in 2018. This once in a lifetime experience will cover all key aspects of race bike preparation and set up, and will include classroom and on-track tuition from current and former racing stars.
