Video: Onboard lap of Jerez

Last year MCN road-tester Michael Neeves rode his long-term test Yamaha R1 down to Jerez for a bit of fun and a track school with the Masterclass race school and was taught the ropes by none other than ex-MotoGP god, Jeremy McWilliams. We've already shown you the highlights of the school in a previous video but dreadging through the archive ...

Video: R1 versus the rest

Yamaha has won every class of GP racing but, surprisingly, never a World Superbike championship. This is, presumably, a nagging pain in the arse of its racing division. But how to sort it?

Yamaha YZF-R1 (2007-2008)

Yamaha’s latest R1 features new-found midrange drive from junking Yamaha’s tried and tested five-valve per cylinder in favour of the traditional four-valve set up, but at the same time installing some of the “bad boy” engine manners the original model was famed for.

Yamaha YZF-R1 (1998-2003)

The third and final great sports bike of the nineties. The FireBlade set the agenda, the 916 added finesse and the Yamaha YZF-R1 topped them off with extra power and madness. Even today the original Yamaha YZF-R1 is a sports tool to be reckoned with and updated Yamaha YZF-R1s are even more potent and easier to use too.

Yamaha YZF-R1 (2004-2006)

It’s hard to fault the clinical, precise and devastatingly fast Yamaha YZF-R1. Its chassis can cope with all kinds of road surfaces and demolishes tight hairpins at any track. But it does demand skill and rivals like the CBR1000RR and GSX-R1000 are simply less work. For purists the Yamaha YZF-R1 still has something unique; a superb focus on the dark ...
