The Unvieled 2009 Yamaha R1

It has been all nice and quiet from Yamaha until they anounced the new R1. There has been a lot of speculation about this machine, but it seems that one thing is for sure its supposed to make a big bang. 182 bhp with a revolutionary engine design as they have stated and different engine mappings for different types of riding. I wonder how this is going to be compared to previous models, and it seems that people think this bike will be a big jump compared to the previous models. A lot of design and chassis modifications are directly tied to Moto GP technology. 

One thing is for sure, this bike looks good and its going to sell.
