The 2016 edition will have the same specifications as this year’s version.

The YZF-R1M comes with a fully adjustable Ohlins Electronic Racing Suspension (ERS), Communications Control Unit (CCU), and carbon-fiber bodywork. New owners of the 2016 YZF-R1M will get access to Yamaha Racing Experience, where riders can acquire competitive riding skills under the guidance of motor racing legend, Colin Edwards, and also learn to fine-tune their motorcycles to suit riding styles and conditions.

It is common knowledge that Yamaha brings some of the most cutting-edge technology to the YZF-M1, the motorcycle that Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo won MotoGP races on. Some of this technology is brought to the production YZF-R1 motorcycle as well, specifically the ‘M’ version which is most closely related to the MotoGP motorcycle.

Volkswagen's 10-speed DSG gearbox on hold.

Company sources cite technical complexity and cost issues as reasons for project delay.
At the Vienna Engine Symposium September 2013, Volkswagen showcased a 10-speed DSG gearbox which was set to replace the six-speed DSG in an attempt to reduce CO2 emissions across the manufacturer's range. This new gearbox was expected to feature as part of the eighth-generation Passat line-up, which was unveiled last year, and also, serve some models from Skoda, Audi, Volkswagen and Seat.

Now, sources in company have confirmed to our sister publication Autocar UK, that the project had to be put on the backburner as it was getting increasingly complex and very expensive. The announcement leaves VW trailing behind Mercedes-Benz in the race to lower CO2 emissions by adopting advanced transmission technology.
