Yamaha YZF-R1S Overview
With the launch of YZF R1 and R1M, Yamaha Motors conveyed that they are not backing down and so launched not one but two worthy contenders to the KawasakiвЂ™s H2 and BMWвЂ™s S1000RR. Recently the Japanese manufacturer launched the slightly cheaper version of YZF R1 and named it R1S. The S badge is nowhere to be seen on the new motorcycle because Yamaha has made sure that R1S looked exactly like the R1. Yamaha has introduced the bike globally at almost $1500 lesser price than the R1 which retails at $16490. Cosmetically the R1S looks exactly like the R1 but it differs in terms of mechanicals and components.
Yamaha YZF-R1S Expected Safety Features
Yamaha has replaced some of the exotic metals like titanium and magnesium with some of the less-expensive stuff like aluminium and steel and because of which R1S weighs almost 4kgs more than the R1. Now counting some of the major changes, the company replaced the titanium connecting rods with the steel ones, also the outer parts and fasteners like the oil pan and right-side engine covers from magnesium to aluminium. Apart from this, the new R1S does not comes with quickshifter, which comes as a standard on the R1 and R1M.
Yamaha YZF-R1S Expected Engine and Power
R1S utilizes the same power mill (ofcourse), which is a 998cc engine that delivers 194bhp of maximum power and 112Nm of peak torque. Like R1, R1S also shares the same electronic package which includes a six-axis IMU, three different power modes, adjustable traction control, slide control, launch control, and wheelie (lift) control.
Yamaha YZF-R1S Expected Price
Currently R1 retails at INR 22.34 lakhs (Ex-Showroom) and it might end up costing near INR 20 lakhs in the Indian market. The R1S and R1 both competes directly with the Kawasaki Ninja H2 and BMW S100RR.
Yamaha YZF-R1S Expected Date
Yamaha YZF-R1S may launch in 2016 near march to august month.
