MOTOGP TECHNOLOGY. WITH LOOKS TO MATCH. The new YZF-R1 LE not only gives you much of Valentino Rossi's championship technology, but also his championship look and style. The R1 is the first ever production motorcycle with a crossplane crankshaft. The result? Outrageous torque and raw, high-rpm power providing incredibly smooth power delivery out of the corners. While the bold Fiat Yamaha team graphics provide incredibly smooth style.
