Sportbike fans are pretty excited about Yamaha’s 2015 YZF-R1 and YZF-R1M motorcycles. Now, prospective owners – or just those who want to play – can experience the ability to adjust the R1’s advanced electronics on Yamaha’s Meter Simulator. The simulator allows users to discover how the adjustments work and learn the menu system through toggling switches, rolling the selection wheel, and clicking the mode button. Aside from teaching the various adjustments, the simulator also demonstrates how easy it is to change the settings of the different ride control systems on the fly.
“The R1 and R1M are two of the world’s most technologically advanced motorcycles, and the new meter simulator allows enthusiasts and future owners to virtually adjust some of the advanced electronics settings from their tablet or computer,” said David Docktor, Yamaha’s motorcycle marketing manager. “The meter simulator on the Yamaha Motorsports website provides two great benefits: It showcases the breakthrough Yamaha Ride Control (YRC) system and enables consumers to learn about all the electronic features and adjustability of the R1 and R1M.”
Look for the meter simulator in the “Features/Innovation” section of the R1 and R1M model pages of the Yamaha Motorsports website.
