2007 R1

07R1a.jpg

They have completely revamped the 2007 Yamaha R1,redesigning the engine, suspension, and chassis to make for a very new mean looking motorcycle. The main change for this machine is the throttle-by-wire which was first introduced into the 2006 R6. Which seems to have slightly tamed the R1’s engine, some people say that it takes away from the raw power of the machine, but I think this makes the R1 more ridable and you have more usable power. You can come out of corners faster with this type of throttle to the point it might make you over confident, and it will feel better around corners and more stable when flipping left to right because the pivot position of the swingarm is 3mm higher then before. All these tweaks and changes have made this into one great piece of machinary.

    Nice Post!!! I would love to have a ride on this one; but in kuwait i dont like the Yamaha dealership, so i always prefer Honda when it comes to Japanese Bikes here :)

    That is a one sexy girl I could say!! You’re thinking about it? So what happened with the stolen one?? Any news?

  4. Big B: I know what you mean, I love the bike but I hate the dealership! Honda dealership is good and so is the Duc/BMW/KTM one, Suzuki I think is the worst.

    Mark: DROOPY!?>!?! Dude its aggressive looking!

    Nora: I agree with you! They are still searching, and now we are just waiting on insurance, and yes I’m thinking about this between me and my friend.

    Big B, call TriStar & you could always ask for a test ride provided you have a ridding licens.japanese bikes are nice,fast & inexpensive , but they just don’t have the appeal of a Ducati.

  8. I’ve got a 2004 R1 at the moment and I’m getting an 07 as soon as possible. :)
