YAMAHA’S R1 may not have the outright ‘oh my gosh, I’m scared’ horsepower, handling or gadgets of the latest superbikes, but it’s no slouch either. Pin one in the first three gears and tell me you're not slightly afraid.
We run a company R1 at Bike Social and although in the dreamy world of magazine group tests in magazines it often comes last, in the real world it’s a capable sports bike that’s stupidly fast on the road, makes a great noise and is easy to ride fast over reasonable distances. That Crossplane crank inline four motor is a unique experience in motorcycling too. meaning you need to ride it like a high-revving twin than a traditional inline four cylinder bike.
This 2011 model is for sale as a Cal Crutchlow Monster Tech 3 Yamaha Replica. Okay, so it would have been a touch more value had Cal stayed at Yamaha, instead of signing for Ducati, but it’s still a great paintscheme all the same. It’s signed by Cal too so is a definite piece of history.
