2007 Yamaha R1 - Semi Major Update

Discussion in 'Bike Reviews, Questions and Suggestions' started by VtrElmarco, Oct 11, 2006.

  1. Just a little bit of new news everybody.

    Throw away your old, gutless, ill-handling 2006 Yamaha R1's as the new 2007 model has been released. It's had quite a freshen up for what's supposed to be an in-between model.

    Heres the link from the legends at mcnews.com.au:


    Always a top looking bike, and it's interesting to see they have dropped the 5 valve heads for the 'old school' 4 valve numbers. (Is it back to push rod driven 2 valve heads??? :LOL: )
