Yamaha YZF-R1 For Sale

What Is It?
- Very fast, powerful, comfortable for a sport bike, suspension, brakes, handling, stability, looks
- Gets hot in slow moving traffic
The theme behind the third generation R1 was handling, specifically the power of a litre bike with the handling of a 600. The liquid cooled 998cc four cylinder engine carried over from the 2004-2006 model however 5 down to 4 valves/cylinder design and changes to the compression ratio raised the power to 180bhp at 12,500rpm.
