Bikes for sale

Today's bike of the day is this first generation big bang Yamaha R1.

Seller says

“Yamaha YZF-R1 Big bang finished in Metallic Blue and covered just 6647 miles with some service history, a nice standard bike with a tail tidy and seat cowl fitted, these bikes look and sound amazing and with a latest R1 costing upwards of £15k these are now looking like great value for money.” 

MCN says

The looks of the first big bang R1 certainly aren't to everyone's taste but if you don't mind them then this 2009 model is great value for money. The ultra-short-stroke engine gives the R1 astonishing acceleration, with similar grunt to a V-twin. Add to this the fact it sounds like Rossi's R1 and you can't help but smile. This example's only covered 6,647 miles and is up for sale for less than £7,000."
