YZF-R1 is unlike anything before. Benefitting from even more MotoGP technology for 2012 with new seven-level traction control and the World GP 50th Anniversary livery option. The World GP livery includes a 50th Anniversary emblem on top of the fuel tank and a special numbered plate showing the production number of only 2,000 units that will be produced worldwide. From the track to the street, it truly is "the 1".
