Improvements in every significant area! In our quest to make the best even better we have looked at every single component on the R1, and if an improvement could be made, we've made it. We've modified the design of everything from the engine, fairing, headlights, seat and tail through to the front and rear suspension, subframe, transmission and braking system. Over 150 component changes for 2000! For 2000, the flagship of the YZF-R Series has undergone a major redesign of over 150 components, a move that will ensure that the new-generation R1 reinforces its position as the ultimate large-capacity supersport machine.
