Yamaha’s R1 has been tweaked and massaged for 2006 to produce a claimed 2.2kW more power at 12 500rpm. To give you an idea of the detail work this involves, the intake valve guides have been shortened by 5mm to 27.5mm.

This allows a smoother, straighter intake port and improves intake gas flow; Yamaha says it also reduces frictional losses on the valve stems but I somehow doubt the difference would be measurable.

The cam chain tensioner has been revised and the clutch boss modified for better oil flow to the clutch assembly.

Its chassis has also been nipped and tucked to move the Weight: bias one percent further forward and extend the swing-arm by 20mm; the Frame: thickness has been modified to change the Frame: rigidity balance without affecting vertical rigidity

The Front Suspension: has been modified to suit the revised Weight: bias, including a new lower triple clamp. The rear Engine: mounts have also been revised and the swing-arm pivot has been moved to optimise the effect of its increased length on the handling – but that’s not the big news.

The big news is that for the first time on a Japanese litre-class sports bike Yamaha has seen fit to build, alongside the standard model, a limited-edition “SP” (sport performance) version dripping with the special components American journalists used to call unobtanium because you just couldn’t get them in the US.

SPs are generally low-volume, homologation specials, sold to the public in just sufficient numbers to satisfy racing regulations
