However, when it comes to outrageous, possibly game-changing sportbikes, Yamaha has firmly placed at least one hand on that title with the R1M.
Taking the MotoGP-inspired tech like slide control, variable traction control, and lift control, to another level, the R1M comes equipped with electronic suspension and communication control unit. The latter, working in conjunction with a GPS antenna, records running data like lap times and track mapping, giving you the ability to download the information later and make changes to the R1M directly from an Android or iOS app.
