Fresh rumors about the Yamaha YZF-R1 2020May 30, 2019
Recently, the Yamaha YZF-R1 2020 has been the subject of heaps of rumors. The Japanese brand is developing a new generation liter sportbike as a model for next year, which excites all Yamaha R1 fans and leads to some discussions.
In the previous rumors there was information: Yamaha YZF-R1 2020 will be equipped with a new four-cylinder engine, a gearless transmission, VVT system and updated electronics (for example, antiville working through the rear brake, and not the throttle).
So, the latest rumors.
The new generation will meet the Euro5 standard – one of the most significant reasons for the upgrade. According to the latest rumors, the motorcycle will also be completed with a redesigned body kit, a new air box and a system for changing valve timing.
In fact, the Yamaha YZF-R1 2020 will be an evolution of the current motorcycle, not completely new. Probably, Yamaha believes that the potential of the current version is not fully utilized – there is no need for a radically new motorcycle, but the standards and the moral age of the model make it necessary to upgrade.
According to European laws, from 2020 all new motorcycles must comply with Euro5, and since 2021 – absolutely all models, including those developed earlier. The VVT system is a magic wand for many manufacturers. It allows you to maintain performance and reduce harmful emissions.
