About the 2010 Yamaha YZF-R1 LE

Yamaha’s 2010 motorcycle lineup includes their unchanged MotoGP-derived YZF-R1 and a Limited Edition YZF-R1 Valentino Rossi replica. This last comes in an exciting Valentino Rossi/Fiat Yamaha livery with the number “46” and “The Doctor” logos, as well as with the MotoGP star’s signature on the fuel tank.

It’s all about power – delivery of power, to be exact. That’s because the R1 is the world’s first production motorcycle with a crossplane crankshaft. Originally pioneered in MotoGP racing with the M1, crossplane technology puts each crank pin 90 degrees from the next, with an uneven firing interval of 270-180-90-180 degrees. The result is incredibly smooth, roll-on power delivery with outrageous amounts of torque for a rush like you’ve never experienced before.
