Standard Features

 Liquid-cooled, 1,679 cc, DOHC, 16-valves, 65, V-4 engine has no equal in its class. The compact engine design has allowed the engineers to place the engine in the "sweet spot" of the frame to optimize handling  
 DOHC, 4-valve "pent roof" cylinder head design  
    Compact pent roof combustion chambers with 11.3:1 compression ratio  
    4-valve design optimizes breathing efficiency and overall engine performance  
    34 mm intake and 30 mm steel exhaust valves  
    42,000 valve adjustment interval  
 "Combination" chain and gear camshaft drive system  
    Intake cams are driven by a chain  
    Exhaust cams are driven by a gear drive off the intake cams  
    Design allows for more compact cylinder heads since the distance or "pitch" between the camshafts is reduced  
 High-performance camshafts  
    Provide incredible engine performance  
 Automatic hydraulic cam chain tensioners  
    Reduced engine mechanical noise  
    Reduced maintenance.  
 Lightweight, forged, aluminum short skirt pistons

    Reduced mechanical vibration  
    Excellent durability  
 Fracture split con rods are carburized and use a "nut less" design  
    Lower end "cap" of the rod is made from the same piece of material as the upper portion; the 2-pieces are "split" apart using a special process known as fracture splitting and then machined  
    Fracture splitting ensures true big end roundness and greater precision in con rod dimensions for excellent durability despite high horsepower loads  
 180-degree crankshaft design  
 Direct ceramic composite plated "liner less" cylinders  
    Ceramic coating sprayed directly on the cylinder blocks, eliminating the liner and reducing weight  
    Excellent heat dissipation for consistent power delivery  
    Coating enhances the thin film of oil between the cylinder and piston, reducing friction and increasing power  
 Crankcase incorporates the cylinders into the upper half of the cases to reduce weight

 Yamaha Chip Control Throttle (YCC-T) system  
    YCC-T electronically controls throttle valves for outstanding throttle response and controllability  
    System features Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) and D.C. motor driven throttle valves  
    YCC-T system provides precise control of intake air volume for a smoother torque curve  
    ECU that controls YCC-T is capable of responding to changes at a speed of 1,000th of a second  
    Rider can "mechanically close" the throttles by simply closing the throttle twist grip  
 Yamaha Chip Controlled Intake (YCC-I) system  
    Intake funnels / stacks vary in length between 2 pre-set positions depending on engine rpm  
    Servo motor varies funnel length from 150 mm (low to mid rpms) to the short setting of 54 mm for high rpm  
    Transition rpm is approximately 6,650 rpms  
    Electronic servo motor varies the funnels. The revolutionary YCC-I provides the best of both worlds... Solid low rpm torque and power combined with an amazing high rpm rush. It takes only 0.3 of a second for the funnels to move from the tall to the short position  
 Large capacity air box uses a viscous-type paper air filter  
 Functional, hand finished aluminum intake covers highlight Yamaha's quality and attention to detail

    Utilizes a titanium body and butterfly valves that prevent the "blow back" phenomenon caused by "valve overlap"  
    Design reduces weight and maximizes cornering clearance  
    EXUP system eliminates "flat spots" in the power band and reduces emissions  
 Hydraulically activated, ramp-type slipper clutch  
    Consistent clutch performance with light lever pull and minimal maintenance
