Yamaha reveals 2023 R1 GYTR made with Pro specs just for the track


Yamaha has unveiled the new 2023 R1 GYTR in Europe, a Pro-spec version of the YZF-R1, made specifically for the track, that is, not homologated for road usage.

One change that is fully visible is its white primer fairing, which leaves it ready for the paint job you want. But of course, that’s just the tip of the iceberg, as the main changes are under the fairing.

The Yamaha R1 GYTR, as the name suggests, has been given the professional treatment by the brand’s Genuine Yamaha Technology Racing parts (GYTR) department.

GYTR Racing parts are designed in tandem with your Yamaha for unmatched integration, using state-of-the-art materials like carbon fiber and aircraft-grade aluminum.

In 2021, Yamaha created the GYTR PRO SHOPS concept: the first and only place that anyone from professional racers to track-day riders can go to for all of their racing needs. It’s where they can get their hands on high-specification components, and have their bikes tuned and customized to the highest level.

According to the company, there are 17 GYTR PRO SHOPS today across Europe, and they are aiming to expand to 25 within the coming months.

The 2023 R1 GYTR is the ultimate canvas to tailor your own superbike machine. Designed to offer an efficient package to track-day riders and racers, it comes only with necessary parts for the track and equipped with over 25 carefully selected GYTR parts and an Akrapovic muffler and link-pipe system.

Further benefits for riders include an improved power output and rideability, making it the perfect race bike for all levels of ability, with the performance refined across the rev range.

The wide variety of options to adjust the ECU makes it easier to ride at your limit, boasting optimized gearing and agility thanks to a range of lightweight parts.
