I own a 1999 Yamaha YZF-R1 (1000cc) in V&M custom race colours (Red/Yellow flames and sponsors). I bought the bike just short of two years ago for approx £4,000 from a dealer. The bike had only done 4,500 dry miles (genuine as a good friend knows the previous owner) and the bike was/is in mint...

Pro Cheap(ish) running costs, looks fantastic,fast

Cons sometimes can be too quick

I've had my 2002 fuel injected R1 (5PW model) for a year now. Have had CBR6's for 10years previously, so was a bit worried about spending loads on tyres/petrol/insurance ect. 1st nice suprise was how cheap insurance is, i only pay £120 a year. I had been thinking in the range of £250-300, so was...

“Yamaha YZFR1”

published 12/09/2010

ProQuality, comfort, sports handling

Consfuel consumption

I purchased a new 2009 model R1 last year and have owned it for 18 months of totally trouble free biking, covering 9000 miles. The longest trip I did was to Jerez with a few mates. The R1 was as perfect as you'd expect over the twisty mountain passes of the Pyrenees. Thats exactly what the R1 was...

“We are not worthy”

published 24/04/2003

ProFast, fast, fast and fast, Exhillarating ride

ConsPricey insurance if you don't have a history

When Yamaha first announced the release of the R1, the unsuspecting public were already gripped with the performance and exhilaration of the Fireblade. The fastest, best handling, most exciting animal on the road seemed invincible. Along came the R1 and chewed it up and spat it out! Honda have...

“The roaring R1!”

published 09/07/2000

ProBlow away anything else on the road!

ConsToo tempting to get booked

The R1 is the most exciting bike i've ever riden. Acceleration, power and handling are superb!!! although the seat is quite low, the riding position is uncomfortable and angled down over long journeys. This bike is not really passenger friendly, and eats up the rear tyres in approximately 2000...

Consno

. Takes a bend as though they were riding around the outside edge of a threepenny bit 2. Plods along at no more than 80 miles per hour as any faster than that would pull the arms out of the sockets 3. Smooth, slick, and tend to ride very fast everywhere, but are generally very safe. I first...
