2012 Yamaha YZF-R1 revealed

You wanted traction control, it's got it

THE 2012 Yamaha YZF-R1 has been revealed by Yamaha.

It features traction control and will come with three new paint schemes. Technically speaking, the rest of the bike remains unchanged.

We reported on this model earlier in the year with the Brazilian 2012 R1 was revealed. A few days ago, we were on the end of a lot of heat from Yamaha for revealing this picture of the 2012 YZF-R1 leaked straight from the factory.
