Motorsport has been a focus for Yamaha since the company was founded. Yamaha engineers have been developing performance accessories for over 40 years. Each part is characterized by first-class technologies. Today these components are known as Genuine Yamaha Technology Racing (GYTR®) parts. GYTR Racing components are developed in parallel with Yamaha vehicles for seamless integration. State-of-the-art materials such as carbon fiber and aircraft-grade aluminum are used. Once development is complete, GYTR products undergo the most rigorous performance and durability tests.

From the beginning, GYTR technology has helped Yamaha Racing teams to achieve many podiums and successes.

In this way, Yamaha Racing Technology benefits every customer who wants optimal performance from their R-Series motorcycle.
GYTR PRO SHOPS: from racing to customers
Winning world titles is not the only goal. Yamaha is customer-centric. This means that the brand is committed to providing the best service to its customers and even exceeding expectations. On this basis, Yamaha developed the GYTR PRO SHOP concept in 2021. GYTR PRO SHOPs are the contact point for all matters relating to motorsport. They are aimed equally at professional racers and track day participants. Here you can get in touch with racing experts and technicians, purchase high-quality components and have your own motorcycle perfected at the highest level.
Today there are 17 GYTR PRO SHOPS all over Europe - two of them in Germany. As GYTR experts, the Yamaha partners Motorrad Klein and Yamaha Zentrum Rebnitz are at the side of every motorsport enthusiast. With their experience and contacts to Yamaha's racing programs, they deliver tailor-made solutions for their customers' R1, R6, R7 and R3 motorcycles. away January 2023 they will also be the exclusive distribution point of a very special machine: the new R1 GYTR 2023!
The concept of the R1 GYTR 2023
The Yamaha R1 is a tried and tested racing motorcycle that has enjoyed success in national and international series around the world. The most recent peak being the 2021 World Superbike World Championship title. Their unique CP4 engine offers linear torque with excellent response and their chassis boasts unparalleled handling. The electronics package of the IMU, the ride-by-wire throttle control, the brake control and the engine brake management further enhance the controlled driving experience. Like the R6 GYTR, the new R1 GYTR 2023 is also designed for racing. The R1 GYTR was developed for customers who value performance at the highest level. It was specially prepared for use on racetracks and is therefore not approved for road traffic.
The R1 GYTR was designed to be faster and more precise than ever. It was developed to provide track day pilots and pro racers with an efficient package. Parts that are necessary for road traffic are omitted - instead, the R1 GYTR is equipped with high-quality racing components. It comes with over 25 carefully selected GYTR parts and an Akrapovic exhaust system. In addition, the driver benefits from improved engine performance and refined handling. The result was a perfect racing motorcycle for all performance classes. The performance has been improved over the entire speed range. The diverse setting options of the ECU make it easier to explore your personal limits. In accordance with the FIM Stock 1000 regulations, the brakes and aerodynamics of the R1 GYTR have been optimized.
