Yamaha YZF R1 EU Race Blue

Yamaha launched the YZF-R1 after redesigning the Genesis engine to offset the crankshaft, gearbox input, and output shafts. This “compacting” of the engine made the total engine length much shorter. This allowed the wheelbase to be shortened significantly, resulting in much quicker handling and an optimized center of gravity. The bike had a compression ratio of 11.8:1 with a six-speed transmission and multi-plate clutch.

The Yamaha YZF-R1 is a quality bike. If you havent been riding that long and are deciding r6 or r1, go for the r1 you wont be dissapointed!! Like some of these reviews say, its easy to ride below 7k revs, but above this the bike comes alive and will scare you.
