YAMAHA YZF R1 

THE ICONIC R1 // JUST 14K MILES // SUPERB ORIGINAL CONDITION

EXTERIOR

Finished in arguably the most iconic shade for any Yamaha sportsbike, Deep Purplish Blue Metallic (0564) this R1 presents free from any chips or scratches to the paintwork and fairings. It is immediately evident this example has been lovingly looked after, with the overall condition underneath being just as clean as the exterior. There are only a couple of insignificant blemishes to report.

ENGINE

Fires into life and settles immediately to a steady idle, we have completed an oil and filter service and will supply the bike with 12 months MOT meaning this incredibly clean and unmolested example is now ready to be used and enjoyed by its next custodian.


WHEELS AND TYRES

Matching and correct Pirelli Diablo’s are date stamped 2019 and 2020, with negligible mileage covered since and therefore showing plenty of tread.

SERVICE HISTORY & PROVENANCE 

The 90’s were defined by three manufactures – Honda, Ducati and Yamaha. Honda’s Fireblade started the revolution and soon after, Ducati launched the technically competent 916 with its fuel injection and adjustable steering head angle, not forgetting it’s Italian charm. Finally, in 1998, Yamaha released the R1 and immediately outclassed its rivals. It was the most powerful, yet lightest litre bike on the market and popularity was instantaneous. More than 20 years later, Yamaha is still producing its range topping R1, with the same characteristics and DNA of the ground-breaking, iconic predecessor launched all those years ago.

This example was first registered on 2nd September 1999, with just 5 former keepers. Accompanying the history file is the original owner’s manual, along with two keys. This bike is fully HPI clear, with certificate available upon request. Presenting in completely original and standard specification, it’s refreshing to see such an evidently well-cared for R1, of which there are many examples that often fall foul of aftermarket modifications.
