2009 Yamaha YZF-R1
The Yamaha PR men have dubbed the radical R1 the 'ultimate cornering machine,' which was one of the key areas that they set out to improve over the previous generation.
Like their world championship-leading M1, its littler brother has 'mass centralization' on the brain, which the entire motorcycle has been laid out around.
Taking cues from its younger sibling, the R6, the R-Uno now has a cast magnesium subframe that is ultra light and reduces weight at the the outer edges of the motorcycle to centralize mass.
Retail price for the 2009 R1 is $9990 for the black, $10,090 for the blue and $10,190 for the orange and white, and they are rolling into dealers now.
