except for the MASSIVE LIES that Yamaha propagated about the REDLINE on the new R6... that was actually almost 2,000 LOWER than advertised... and the fact that the bike is completely UNrideable below 11,500 rpmkamranmarashi said:If R1 ever catches up with the R6 technology and drop the 5 valve and go to 4 valve technology, it may actually become a good bike with a more decent low end torque!
Actually, the tail section and gas tank looks like it was MV inspired. The front is R1 tradition - which is nice for a Japanese manufacturer.spalding12 said:i think that most folks who own MVs respect the R1.... they ought to
it's a great bike
typically japanese in appearance.... but a wonderful machine
i HAD lusted over the R1 LE for a while..... never found one
now, i'll have the F4 1000R and it won't matter.... but, i still respect the R1
