It has been a long time coming but the R1 is back in the big league.
New from the ground-up and inspired by Yamaha's 2011 YZR-M1 MotoGP racer,
the £14,999 R1 is smaller, lighter, nimbler and more powerful than ever.
It also boasts the most advanced set of electronic riding aids yet seen on
a road-going superbike.
Get the best of biking EVERY day...

Spa Francorchamps - Suzuki 1000 Onboard - Mike Edwards
What a great race track Spa is - and here you can get a flavour of it's
true Belgian beauty with on board footage from morning warm up before the
24 hour endurance race there.
We just taped an ordinary video camera on the tank, to see what we would
get - and although I couldn't actually get down behind the screen at all,
the result is great - you can even see the speedo...
2009 Yamaha R1 does 189MPH - NO MUSIC!
**Please note: On display it shows MPH - NOT KPH! **
Watch the tach go through gears...Liter bikes dont top out at 189kph...DUH!
After several mods I wondered what the top (indicated) speed would be.
Prior to the changes I was only able to reach 184mph. Unfortunately, I was
unable to fully tuck due to the camera. **After numerous requests, the
music is gone and wind noise is back**
2009 YAMAHA R1 Burnout
We had a Michelin Pilot Power 2CT tire that was being taken off and trashed
so we decided to do a burnout with it instead. Keeping a careful eye on
RPM's and temp...I let'r rip! Only damage was to the tire and the loss of
the chain guard due to the cords ripping it off.
