Does 2019 R1 have Cruise Control?

Greetings to all,

I would like to ask for your guidance, do you guys know if the 2019 R1 comes with cruise control?

Thanks,

Cassio

No, the only modern superbike that comes with cruise control is the BMW S1000R, and even that is an optional extra on the new bike (I think the old ones included it).

That's funny... the R1 will never have cruise control.

Thanks for answering.
Related to BMW 1000RR been the only one with Cruise Control that statement is not correct. I have a RSV4 RF 2017 and it does have cruise control and Ducati V4S does have cruise control as well.
Related to the statement "R1 will never have cruise control" I'm not a fan to deal with situations in "absolute", with the market the way that it is right now a lot of changes are coming and the competition is very hard and Yamaha already have MT-10 with cruise control and to migrate to R1 does not require much and in order to compete with the best (2020 BWM, RSV4 1100, Panigale V4 and the new ZX-10R that is coming soon) Yamaha will use all arsenal they have.

Fair enough, the BMW is likely the only superbike with cruise control that will continue to work after a few years... happy?

Agreed. I love the CC on my 2019 MT-10. Nothing better than to be able to rest your throttle hand on the way home after a long day of riding. It also makes the occasional slabbing a bit less tedious. I say that's a good thing, and Yamaha should incorporate it into the upcoming R1.

Sounds like someone here hasn't tried cruise control on a modern sportbike. Try it. You may be pleasantly surprised...and we won't tell anyone.
