I'll asked at local dealer last week if he had any information etc about the new R1, after seeing that I don't think I'll bother, my current one is less than a year old with 2.3k on the clock.
Why couldn't they have made it to resemble the current M1 race bike, with a similar exhaust to the M1, instead of the hideous Blade type.
This could be the first model of Yamaha 1000 I'll not have since the original Genesis of 1987.
This is the new R1
Did you ever hear anyone say “That picture had better be banned, because I might look at it and it might be very damaging to me”
I likes that. Yes I agree it looks similar to the Blade but they've done a better job IMHO.
Those pillion pegs and no plate hangar would have to go though.
Saying that MCN pic last week is probably nearer.
Don't think I'll be buying one new anyhow. I'll wait until the used ones appear. It only takes a couple of months before some joker decides he/she must have it then changes his/her mind after they've run it in.

It looks unbalanced to me, like a bouncer with a big chest and arms and skinny lucky legs ...
