Yamaha Motor Corp., U.S.A., has launched an all-new online “Meter Simulator” to the R1 and R1M sections of its website. The meter simulator showcases the electronics and adjustability of the new 2015 YZF-R1 and YZF-R1M motorcycles.
“The R1 and R1M are two of the world’s most technologically advanced motorcycles, and the new meter simulator allows enthusiasts and future owners to virtually adjust some of the advanced electronics settings from their tablet or computer,” said David Docktor, Yamaha’s motorcycle marketing manager. “The meter simulator on the Yamaha Motorsports website provides two great benefits: It showcases the breakthrough Yamaha Ride Control (YRC) system and enables consumers to learn about all the electronic features and adjustability of the R1 and R1M.”
Consumers can review and demo all the advanced electronics features of the new R1 and R1M, learn how they function, and make adjustments through the toggle switch, menu-selection wheel, and mode button as if they were actually sitting in the saddle of the motorcycles. The meter simulator enables consumers to explore the multiple YRC settings, choose and adjust the four different YRC presets with the menu-selection wheel, and see how easy it is to select and adjust the various ride control systems.
