Yamaha creates R1 World Championship replica and you can buy it


Yamaha Motor Europe and Crescent Yamaha, home of the Pata Yamaha with Brixx WorldSBK team, announced the Limited Edition Toprak Razgatlıoğlu Yamaha R1 World Championship Replica, celebrating the Turkish star’s 2021 FIM Superbike World Championship title.

Limited to just 21 pieces globally, this exclusive track-only machine reflects the historic 2021 season a celebration of the Turkish rider’s first World Title, along with Yamaha’s first WorldSBK Manufacturers’ Championship since 2009 and Pata Yamaha with Brixx WorldSBK’s Championship Teams’ victory.

Each of these exclusive Yamaha R1 machines will be built in the Crescent Racing PRO SHOP, using the experience and skills amassed during the last six years running the Official Yamaha WorldSBK project.

This makes for the ultimate “track-ready” WorldSBK replica R1, producing 205 bhp at the rear wheel (an increase of 20 bhp over the standard R1) with linear torque delivery via the WorldSBK-spec Akrapovic exhaust and latest GYTR race ECU, weighing under 175kg (with all fluids – a 26kg reduction from the standard bike).

The R1’s class-leading handling is taken to another level via this significant weight reduction and addition of the legendary Öhlins suspension components, factory-spec upper fork clamp and forged Marchesini wheels.

The Brembo Racing system on this exclusive R1 guarantees full power, fade-free retardation at any circuit. To fight for the WorldSBK Championship, it’s the details that matter – and the Toprak WorldSBK replica shines bright with the deepest quality paintwork, highest quality components throughout, titanium fasteners, and an attention to detail in the track-ready build which leaves no doubt that this R1 has be developed and delivered directly from the Crescent Yamaha squad.
