Published: 11 October 2017

Bikes for sale

These early R1s are becoming rare, and with a smattering of tasteful extras, this one is today’s bike of the day. 

Seller says

“This bike has a full Leo Vinci System, double bubble screen, Harris rearsets, carbon guard & hugger, Yamaha seat hump, Ohlins steering damper and  R&G crash bungs. It will come fully serviced with a 12 month MoT and a warranty as standard."

MCN says

“A true classic from the early naughties. In the 90's 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.”
