The 1990s were defined by three sportbikes – the Honda CBR900RR, the Ducati 916, and the Yamaha R1. Honda’s CBR900RR started the revolution by being 76 pounds lighter than its lightest competition. Soon after, Ducati released the 916. It was technically competent with fuel injection and even an adjustable steering head angle, but it’s best remembered just for being one of the most beautiful motorcycles of all time. In 1998, Yamaha released the R1 and wiped the floor with everyone else – it was the lightest and most powerful literbike available and you had to work hard to find a dealer with one in stock.

The bike has always been competitive in the superbike world, but it shot back up to the top of the pack with a redesign in 2015 that earned it win after win in press shootouts. MCN said, “Yamaha created a superbike to beat the best of its European rivals.” Cycle World said, “as a package, the R1 is class leading.” Jalopnik started their review with, “Every once in a while, a motorcycle comes along that changes things. A bike that doesn’t need to have its worth justified or qualified – a bike that’s just plain good. The 2015 Yamaha YZF-R1 is one of those bikes.”

Sport Rider agreed, saying, “If you’d have asked us last week if Yamaha’s 2015 R1 could get any better, we’d have said no.” Why did they specify “last week?” Because that’s when Yamaha showed off a special yellow-and-black speedblock livery for the final round of the 2015 MotoAmerica Championship, and then Yamaha offered up the same livery to celebrate the company’s 60th Anniversary.
