New R1 in in Haga colours the picture doesnt do it justice
Looks like an '08 to me
Not " different " enough to warrant the " inevitable " price hike . ( IF that is an official picture that is ?? )
There’s nothing on the official Yamaha press channels (I’ve just checked). I think everything is rumour and photoshops at this point. The bike above certainly doesn’t look any different to the current one.
saw a Santander R1 VERY similar to this one at Poole Quay the other month
Yamaha dealer conference - 8th September
Thats definatley an 08. My money is on th 09 having a stubby can like the R6, improvements to the slipper clutch and hopefully some kind of data mapping device, oh and 450bhp…
I don’t mind what year it is… I wouldn’t say no to that bike!
That’s definately an 08 bike, dealers send them off to be painted prior to delivery i’ve seen a few now and to be honest the paintwork on them didn’t look too special :w00t:
I wouldn’t be able to stop the wanting to torch it
(I hate Abbey / Santander)
