Review, spec & performance

Yamaha YZF-R1 (1998-2003)

MCN overall rating rating is 5
Owners' overall rating rating is 4.5

MCN review overall verdict:  "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."   Read full review
