To celebrate their 50th anniversary, Yamaha took their incredibly popular 1000cc sportbike and modified just 500 examples into near-production racers. Specific changes made for the Yamaha R1 Limited Edition include an homage to Kenny Roberts and the original Yamaha racing colors with the lovely yellow/black/white paint, custom front and rear Ohlins suspension – developed by the same team that took care of the Yamaha MotoGP bike of the time, Marchesini aluminum wheels designed specifically for this bike, a slipper clutch, and an integrated lap timer.
This example is #23 of the 500.
The odometer shows 1,030 miles.
Reflecting the limited mileage, this R1 LE is in impressive cosmetic condition. The one flaw is a small rub on the motor cover from being shipped in the past.
The sale includes a matching Arai helmet and tool kit. Original date matched tires can be included if buyer pays shipping.
We’re excited to see this go to a new home – congrats to the new owner. As always, thanks for your support and for being part of the Iconic Motorbikes community!
