This model year brings the 4th generation of R1 machines, using the 3rd iteration of the 998cc short-stroke, 20-valve engine loaded in the Deltabox V frame. The bike comes with factory-installed titanium EXUP exhausts which give a 56-degree cornering clearance for die-hard racers.
The R1 also gets new wheels this year, with radial-mount calipers and massive 320mm discs which offer excellent control both on the track and on the street. With new, sizzling hot liveries, the 2002 Yamaha R1 is here to make a bold statement.
