First of all, im very new to the road / supersport bike.

I have had my far share of YZ125/250 and road legal 50cc and 125cc

However my test is fast approuching and i have been looking at a 08/09 Spec Yamaha R1. There are a few nice colours i like however i think budget is going to edge me over to he white and red colour option.

Can i have your opinions on the new spec R6 and R6's in general.

CMC in cannock and Yamaha in Tamworth are offering a few good deals at the moment on the YZF R6


Thanks

Aaron

£6800.00 I believe, however only paid a deposit so may be a few £££ out.

Includes 12months Tax , Usual 3 Year MOT , First Service Free.

Tbh mate, i think i would swap the exhaust however for a first bike ( super sport ) doubt it'll be any time soon

test ride first

dont like to be negative but i assume you have checked insurance out. also try and get a test ride first as they are very extreme in terms of there set up.as for the exhaust i think lighter and smaller is the way forward unlike the 09 r1.good luck and enjoy..

there is a reason for them being short they balance the bikes much better by gettin as close to the centre of the bike its called progress and technology and they reduce weight
