The Milwaukee Yamaha is crossplane engine. This technology puts each connecting rod at 90 degrees from the next, with an uneven firing interval of : 270-180-90-180 dgree. Two engines in one, low torque of a v- twin and the speed of in line four

Yes the R1 crossplane is an in line four, but Yamaha shook things up when they tweaked the in line four's layout. None of these changes affected the position of the cylinders but a bike's engine layout does have a big impact on how it feels and performs.
