Yamaha R1 2011 with twin-clutch box now revealed


The Japan based motorcycle manufacturer Yamaha seems so have got itself inspired by the Honda VFR 1200F sports tourer and based on this inspiration seems to have plans to include the electronically controlled twin clutch in the flagship R1 superbike.

The technique though that Yamaha plans to use will be different from the one that Honda has employed. Unlike Honda, where one input shaft passes through the other, Yamaha plans to use two input shafts that are half the length of a normal gearbox’s single shaft. Also, the two clutches will be placed on either side of the vehicle for perfect weight distribution.

As per Yamaha, the new twin clutch gearbox are enough compact to provide smooth transition during gear changes, and at the same time not affect the balance of the bike after mounting the gearbox.

    Probably not for a while especially with the dollar losing so much of tis value. Maybe Mid-2011. Yamaha will tend to sell their products first where they’ll profit the most like in Europe and North America (Canada).

    a good idea is to have the yamaha r1 have a iro block with tritanuim piston rod and piston and valve you will get 100 foot lbs of torque and 68 hp, thats (draw bar power) about 200hp

    oh you will get 300hp, with 400ft/lbs torque, sorry i was thinking of one piston ,use a holley 400 cfm (400 foot pounds) carborator, or patenet your own, fuel injection is not good enough. get good gas mileage
