Yamaha’s R1 represents the pinnacle of motorcycle performance and technology available to consumers for street legal use. The 998cc liquid-cooled inline four cylinder engine still boasts the 5 valve per cylinder design shared with the 2004 and 2005 model years. The YCCT fly-by-wire throttle offers staggering throttle response and an overall improved powerband thanks to the YCCI variable intake system. Slipper clutch comes standard for ultra smooth down-shifting, and the dual underseat exhaust and aluminum deltabox frame add the stunning overall profile. For the 2006 year, the Yamaha R1 takes the title of being the most easy-to-ride liter bike, one that is usually given to the Honda CBR. The suspension is excellent and eager to soak up even the roughest terrain, complemented by powerful high-performance brakes and handling that you would expect out of a super sport bike. All in all, the R1 shares the same excellent build quality that sets Yamaha above other manufacturers in the reliability department. As such, the R1 is an excellent used bike to invest in.
