Get Ready to Conquer the Track with the new 2019 YZF-R1 GYTR 1Yamaha celebrates its 20th YZF-R1 Anniversary with a track ready GYTR specification YZF-R1 in victorious Suzuka 8 Hours livery

Yamaha R-Series motorcycles have lead the charge both on and off the track in terms of performance, technology and excitement for over two decades now. Whether it’s the rider friendly YZF-R3 or the boundary smashing YZF-R1M, there’s a Supersport model to match every rider. Now comes your chance to join with Yamaha and enter R-World in the most exciting way yet.

2018 saw the 20th anniversary of one the most iconic designs in motorcycle history, the Yamaha YZF-R1. This first 1998 model revolutionised superbike engineering. The engine size and position, the configuration of parts within the chassis and the chassis itself were all re-imagined. Yamaha have continued to use their industry defining superbike as a platform for innovation for two decades now, reaching unprecedented levels of excellence in the sport bike industry.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of their ground-breaking machine, three Yamaha Racing Teams entered the legendary Suzuka 8 Hours on YZF-R1’s sporting the vintage red and white livery of the original 1998 YZF-R1. On-board their special edition machines and wearing matching leathers, the Yamaha Factory Racing Team of Alex Lowes, Michael van der Mark and Katsuyuki Nakasuga delivered a heroic effort to secure a historic consecutive 4th victory in this prestigious endurance race.

Marking this momentous occasion and two decades of leading the way in superbike technology, Yamaha Motor Europe are proud to announce they will be releasing the limited edition, track ready 2019 YZF-R1 GYTR. Featuring the winning 20th Anniversary Suzuka 8 Hours livery including a wide range of GYTR® Performance Products – Genuine Yamaha Technology Racing – and other performance parts as standard. The YZF-R1 GYTR is for track use only.

The key GYTR equipment on YZF-R1 GYTR includes a race wire harness set, ECU, CCU and quick throttle. This exclusive racer also comes with a high performance Öhlins FGRT 219 front fork package, TTX36 GP rear shock and fully adjustable steering damper as well as a full titanium Akrapovič Evolution 2 exhaust system.

There will also be an optional addition of non-Yamaha racing parts, specially selected and installed by racing engineers of a partnering Official Yamaha Racing Team. They ensure each bike will be adorned with a full carbon race fairing in iconic Suzuka 8 Hours livery and after their assembly a dyno engine break-in and tailored chassis set-up is performed, so each individual will be fully ready to conquer the track. This is a machine for true racing fans.

Yamaha Motor Europe will be releasing twenty units of this exclusive machine, one for each year the YZF-R1 has been setting pace in the superbike world.
