2005 Yamaha YZF-R1

2005 Yamaha YZF-R1
MSRP $10,999

From its saddle, the slim-midsectioned R1 feels long, but its short, flat tank helps give the impression of a smaller bike. It accelerates like a mother up top, as its highest longitudinal data demonstrates, and it is without any obvious flaws when railing the curves. The R1’s scores are competitive in nearly every category. It is simply one of the most beautiful Japanese sportbikes ever made.
