Yamaha R1 2020 Experiences and Expert Review

vauli

The Yamaha YZF-R1 is mature and makes countless racetrack pilots happy. The engine shines with lightness and agility, the seating position surprises positively and the handling is radical but still "suitable for the masses". The machine immediately stands out visually and also because of the heart-warming sound. Especially on the country road, the bike scores with its well-known strengths: great engine, great electronics, great package! A real pleasure to ride!
