Bikes for sale

This low-mileage and extremely clean R1 is today’s bike of the day.

Seller says

“Here for sale we have a stunning example of the first under seat exhaust R1. The bike has been very well looked after through its life only covering dry miles, and not many of them at that. Comes with a full document pack with all manuals, keys, receipts and paperwork. Supplied to you serviced and MOT'd. In all, it’s a very clean, tidy and standard bike with just a seat cowl fitted.”

MCN says

“It’s hard to fault the clinical, precise and devastatingly fast Yamaha YZF-R1. Its chassis can cope with all kinds of road surfaces and demolishes tight hairpins at any track. But it does demand skill and rivals like the CBR1000RR and GSX-R1000 of the same era are simply less work. For purists, the Yamaha YZF-R1 still has something unique; a superb focus on the dark art of riding extremely fast.”
