 Ultra-lightweight, compact, 998 cc, DOHC, 16-valve (4-valves / cylinder), liquid-cooled, in-line four-cylinder engine with "crossplane" style crankshaft  
    The key components of this cutting edge engine design are the "crossplane" crankshaft and an uneven firing order. Both of these features are used on Yamaha's race winning M1 motogp racer. The R1M crossplane crankshaft locates the center two rods at a 90 degree plane from the outer cylinders. Instead of the crank pins aligned on the same plane (a straight line drawn through the center of the crankshaft), they align on 2 planes in the form of a cross ... or "crossplane". Working in conjunction with the crossplane crank is an uneven firing order. This R1M engine fires 1,3,2,4 cylinders and the firing intervals are uneven at 270 / 180/ 90 /180 degrees. What all this means to the rider is the most linear torque possible and amazing throttle control. This engine design allows a whole new level of rider - machine communication. One of the most important benefits is the outstanding cornering performance that increased engine / throttle control allows  
    The key engineering goal for the R1 series is significant horsepower with excellent controllability, making the bike easier and more enjoyable to ride. The R1M is a "rider's machine"

 Closed loop, 45 mm Mikuni throttle body fuel injection system with twin injectors.  
    Twin injector (primary and secondary) system is used on our motogp M1 race bike, R1 and YZF-R6  
    Primary injectors are located in the throttle bodies, secondary injectors located in the air box very near the computer controlled intake funnels  
    Both primary and secondary injectors utilizes 12 spray holes to maximize fuel atomization  
    Secondary injectors, located inside the air box, begin to function at mid rpms to redline  
    "Loop system" uses dual oxygen sensors to sniff spent exhaust gases and automatically adjusts the fuel / air ratio for reduced emissions

Electronic Rider Aids... YRC
 Many of the following rider assist aids are derived from Yamaha's motogp race efforts and help make the R1M more controllable and more enjoyable to ride. We call them Yamaha Ride Control or YRC  
 At the heart of the "Yamaha Ride Control" electronic rider assist aids are the IMU or Inertial Measurement Unit and ECU or Electronic Control Unit. The IMU features six axis of measurement using a gyro sensor to detect rotational motion in the pitch, roll and yaw directions. A "G" sensor detects acceleration / velocity in the forward and back, up and down and left and right directions. The vehicle position information obtained from the two sensors including bank angle, pitch rate and sideways slide acceleration is sent to the ECU which in turn controls the five YRC systems (not including the quick shift system). These variables are calculated 125 times per second  
 PWR: Power Delivery Mode is Yamaha's variable throttle control, which controls the throttle valve opening speed, enabling the rider to adjust performance characteristics of the engine based on riding preferences or conditions. There are 4-power settings available from an enhanced race setting to a slippery condition mode with softer power characteristics  
 TCS: Traction control system with lean angle sensor. System uses front and rear wheel sensors to detect slip and then adjusts / regulates power via the ECU / IMU to control rear wheel spin. In addition to detecting difference in speed between the front and rear wheels, system uses input on the degree of bank / lean angle to adjust the degree of TCS intervention to an optimum level in relation to riding conditions in real-time. As the banking angle increases, the amount of TCS intervention also increases. When the TCS is disabled, SCS, LIF and LCS systems will automatically be shut down as well. There are 9 settings plus off  
 SCS: Slide Control System controls engine power when side slip is detected. Power output is adjusted to an optimum level to control side slide. There are 3 settings plus off  
 LIF: Lift Control System (a.k.a. Anti-wheelie control) reduces time loss due to wheelies during closed course competition. System reduces front end lift during starts and hard acceleration. When the IMU and other sensors detect lift, engine output is adjusted to the optimum level to maintain strong acceleration without lift. There are 3 settings plus off  
 LCS: Launch Control System is adopted to help ensure fast, strong, controllable starts in closed course competition situations. When the LCS is activated, it keeps engine rpm limited to approx. 10,000 rpm and maintains an optimum level of engine power in conjunction with inputs from the TCS and LIF systems, allowing the rider to concentrate on clutch engagement and the other competitors, reducing stress associated with race starts. There are 2 settings plus off  
 QSS: Quick Shift System provides smooth, fast upshifts even at full throttle. When the switch on the shift lever rod detects motion, it adjusts engine output and momentarily cancels out the drive torque to promote faster gear shifts. There are 2 settings plus off  
 CCU: Communication Control Unit is a standard feature of the R1M; it will be sold as an accessory for base model. The CCU monitors / records various forms of machine information and simplifies set-up of the instrument panel's function as a rider-machine "interface." Comprised of the CCU and a GPS receiver, running data can be recorded via a data logger, and with the GPS function, the system also enables automatic lap time recording on race circuits. This data help racers / track day enthusiasts to improve their riding skills and lap times. By downloading an "app" for an Android or ios based smartphones, it is also possible to create set-up data on a smartphone. Setting data can then be downloaded into the R1M via a Wi-Fi connection  
 SCU: Suspension Control Unit controls the electronic adjustments (front and rear) to the Ohlin's "Electronic Racing Suspension", available only on the R1M. There are 3 automatic setting modes and 3 manual setting modes

    "ERS" further enhances the performance potential of the R1M with electronically controlled independent damping front and rear  
    Spring preload (front and rear) are set manually... 15 turns of front preload and 9 mm of threaded rear spring preload  
    Based on data from IMU and various sensors, the Suspension Control Unit (SCU) makes automatic, independent adjustments of both front and rear suspensions' compression and rebound damping based on real time riding conditions  
    SCU (suspension control unit) calculates the ideal damping for the front and rear suspensions  
    ERS has a choice of "Automatic" or "Manual" modes. Within these 2 modes there is also a selection of 3-running modes each, for a total of six different settings to fit rider preferences or track conditions  
    Two of the "Automatic" modes have fine adjustment functions for damping force

    UBS system "unifies or links" the front and rear brakes when the front brake is applied  
    Applying the front brake will engage the UBS and to a varying degree will apply some rear brake force too. The amount of rear brake force is based on the attitude and lean angle of the bike  
    If only the rear brake is applied, the UBS will not apply any front wheel brake force
