10 things you should know about the New 2017 Yamaha R1
Make no mistake, this is a serious machine. It’s not for riders who are new to motorcycles and it’s not made for inexperienced track day junkies. This is a bike for experienced riders looking to race around their local tracks or compete in amateur Supermoto races. While that may sound scary, it doesn’t have to be. The first step towards getting some seat time on your new R1 is scheduling a professional course at your local track or with one of several AMA-certified schools across North America (click here to find one near you). They will help teach you how to navigate corners and wean you off any bad habits that could lead to an early ride-ending crash.
- The Basic Specs
- The 2013 Yamaha YZF-R1 is an engineering marvel. For 2013, Yamaha made significant changes to its flagship model by adding more than 100 new parts. The goal was simple: Make the best motorcycle on earth even better. And, for many riders and motorcycle enthusiasts alike, it’s done just that.Pricing and Availability
The new 2015 model has a price tag of £14,500 or approximately $23,000. This represents a £2,300 increase from its predecessor’s price tag of £11,200. It is expected to be available for purchase during March or April of 2015 with first deliveries occurring in May. However, it is also worth noting that there are many other configuration options for buyers to consider and it will likely take some time before models are being produced and delivered on a regular basis. As such, those interested in getting their hands on one early can expect to pay considerably more than $23k and probably even closer to $30k once all costs have been taken into account. Still…worth it?
The Next Generation of Technology from Yamaha
After years of rumors, Yamaha has officially released details about their new R1. The biggest difference is a 1,000cc engine that should be ready to take on all of its competitors. Other than that, we don’t know much else about it. For now, let’s talk price and when you can expect it to hit showrooms.
An In-Depth Look At the Motorcycle’s Design Features
The 2015 powerbike lovers yamaha r1 was designed with a focus on lightness, according to tests performed by weight watchers. Its all-new chassis is said to weigh less than 200 pounds, and even more impressive is that it achieves that superlight weight without sacrificing stability. Stable bikes have always been heavy bikes, says lead designer Bill Burton. We challenged ourselves to make something lighter without losing any of its excellent stability. Thus far, reviews are saying that Burton and his team achieved their goal: The 2015 model’s price tag doesn’t match its light frame—nor does it put too much strain on your wallet. The powerbike lovers’ yamaha r1 has a price of around $16,000.
A Brief History of Yamaha Motorcycles
When Yamaha first started building motorcycles in 1955, they looked a lot different than today’s motorcycles. In fact, their first model, called The Silver Star was created for entry-level riders and featured an upright handlebar that looked like it came right out of a bicycle. Over time, these bikes got bigger and more powerful and in 1999 they produced one of their most iconic models: The YZF750R Thundercat. Powered by a massive V4 engine, The Thundercat is best known for its impressive maneuverability. This year they are releasing yet another incredibly powerful model: The 2016 Yamaha R1 which will be going on sale soon!

How It Compares to Its Main Competitors
Both Triumph’s Speed Triple and Kawasaki’s ZX-10R are seen as direct competitors to Yamaha’s new naked roadster. The three motorcycles share similar performance specs; they all have inline 3-cylinder engines and weigh in around 400 pounds. The bikes also cost roughly similar amounts—with price tags of $12,999 for Kawasaki’s ZX-10R and $13,490 for Triumph’s Speed Triple. Considering its high performance, relatively low weight, and affordable price tag (about $500 less than both of its main competitors), it looks like Yamaha could be onto a winner with its new middleweight roadster.
