In 1998, Yamaha launched the YZF-R1, a sports machine powered by a 998cc engine, also known as the R1. Over its production time, the bike went through significant upgrades in 2000. 2002, 2004, 2006, 2007, 2009, 2015, 2018, and 2020.

The 2000 model came with minor bodywork modifications that improved long-duration ride handling. The bodywork remained similar, with a sharpened headlight housing, more aerodynamic side panels, and a reshaped windshield that resulted in a three percent drag reduction. Also, Yamaha changed the engine management system, resulting in a smoother and broader power distribution.

The 2002 model introduced a new fuel injection system that didn't change the output power and remained the same as its predecessor's, while it packed new cylinder sleeves made of high silicon content, reducing thermal dissipation and oil consumption.

In 2004, the YZF-R1 came with styling updates, including an under-seat exhaust system and performance upgrades that included radial brakes and a ram air intake system, first fitted on a YZF machine.

In 2009, Yamaha launched a new YZF-R1 that took the engine technology from the M1 MotoGP motorcycle with its cross-plane crankshaft design. The 2009 R1 was the first production sports machine that packed a cross-plane crankshaft design.

In 2008, the Japanese maker released the Yamaha YZF-R1 10th Anniversary, a particular version of the YZF-R1 machine that commemorated the 10th anniversary of the R1 model. The specific edition model featured a unique paint scheme with exceptional anniversary graphics and decals.

Besides the unique edition color scheme and graphics, the 2008 Yamaha YZF-R1 10th Anniversary model had the exact specification as the standard model, with a 998cc four-stroke four-cylinder liquid-cooled engine, boasting 182 hp at 12,500 rpm and 116 Nm (85 lb-ft) of torque with peak power at 10,000 rpm.
