If Yamaha are going to be charging premium money for their bikes then they need to up the ante in terms of build quality and kit on the bikes as standard. Don't pay for an overpriced and too heavy R1, buy a £5500 2008 KTM RC8 instead, you know it makes sense.

After reading your comments all i felt is pitty.... FFS if you cant afford a Motorcycle buy an used one for half a price. All this whining is for old womens and children. I cant afford to buy a new R1(i wish too) but i dont whine about price. It is as it is... live with it.... stop whining....
