Yamaha’s in-house performance parts brand, Genuine Yamaha Technology Racing (GYTR), has issued a range of race oriented components for the Yamaha YZF-R1 and YZF-R6. Previously focusing on Yamaha’s off-road motorcycles, GYTR now allows R1 and R6 owners to bring their machines up to race-spec, with parts closely related to Yamaha’s World Superbike and Super Sports racing motorcycles.

Collaborating with famous names such as Ohlins and Akrapovic, GYTR also has race components developed by its engineers. For the R1 and R6, GYTR components in racing ECUs, race wiring harnesses, performance spark plugs and air intakes.

In addition, GYTR also provides camshafts, pistons and conrods, racing wheels, steering damper, front and rear suspension from Ohlins, Akrapovic racing exhausts and Gilles frame protection kits.

All GYTR components and part are derived from Yamaha’s racing efforts, with experience taken from Endurance World Championship, the Suzuka 8-hours and World Super Sports. This ensures reliability and quality in every GYTR part.

GYTR performance parts for the Yamaha YZF-R1 and YZF-R6 will be available from authorised Yamaha distributors from April 2018. However, for Malaysia, authorised distributor Hong Leong Yamaha Malaysia does not import the YZF-R1 and YZF-R6.
