The Yamaha YZF-R1 GYTR Pro “rare” model is one of the rare versions with technical specifications equivalent to the YZF-R1 superbike used by Alex Lowes and Michael Van Der Mark in the WSBK championship. According to the information released by the company, 20 owners of this commemorative model will participate in the Yamaha Racing Experience racing program.
The front part of each bike is engraved with a code number, and the certificate will be given to the owner. However, to become an owner of one of the 20 Yamaha YZF-R1 GYTR Pro commemorative editions, the buyer will be randomly selected among 20 lucky individuals from the online registrations through a lottery.
First launched in 1998, the YZF-R1 has become one of the most successful 1,000cc superbikes, bringing Yamaha remarkable success in prestigious races like Suzuka 8 Hours. Compared to the standard version, the Yamaha YZF-R1 GYTR Pro has the most notable difference in paint color. The bike body is made entirely of carbon material and features a logo similar to the first generation YZF-R1.
In addition, the Yamaha YZF-R1 GYTR Pro is equipped with a range of top-notch features, supplemented with performance-enhancing equipment including the Akrapovic Full Evo 2 Titanium exhaust pipe, Brembo GP4-RX brakes, T-Drive 320mm disc, Ohlins FGRT 219 front suspension and Ohlins TTX36 GP rear shock absorber, and premium V02 tires from the Bridgestone brand.
Yamaha has not announced the technical specifications of the engine for this limited edition YZF-R1 GYTR Pro. Meanwhile, the standard Yamaha YZF-R1 uses a 988cc 4-cylinder engine, producing a maximum power of 198 horsepower at 13,500 rpm and a peak torque of 112 Nm at 11,500 rpm, coupled with a 6-speed gearbox.
