YAMAHA R1 (2015-on)
MCN Rating 5 out of 5 View full MCN ratings
Owners' Rating 4.8 out of 5 View full owners' ratings

MCN overall review verdict: Inspired by the 2011 Yamaha YZR-M1, the 2015 Yamaha R1 is smaller, lighter, nimbler and more powerful than ever and boasts a host of electronic riding aids, including a MotoGP-inspired slide control system. Latest news: 2020 Yamaha R1 and R1M revealed! Related: this bike appears in our Top Touring Motorbikes feature Yamaha created a superbike to beat the best of its European rivals. The BMW S1000RR and Ducati 1299 Panigale weren't going to have it all their own way and had to work to keep up with the R1. Think of the Yamaha as being the size of a 600, with the power delivery of a turbo-charged 1000, all reined in by the most sophisticated electronic rider aids of any current road bike and you’d be some way there. The R1 has much in common with its MotoGP racing cousin and has the same riding position, face and engine position as the 2011 YZR-M1 MotoGP bike. It even has forged magnesium wheels as standard. Yamaha hasn’t just moved the R1 story along, it has created a tool for racers and serious trackday riders that will rival the best of its European rivals for the first time. It’s rapid, handles superbly and has race-ready electronics (unless you’re a BSB rider and you’ll have to take them all off).
