Yamaha YZF-R1

2004, Model S,. I think Yamaha is king of motorcycles. Best running, smoothest running bike I have. Maintenance interval for valve lash check is highest of all bikes (25,000 miles). Top speed is above 180 mph. No regrets . Fairing panels are relatively easy to remove and install. All the makers need to remove the excessive maintenance.

Great bike, sprocket change helps redeem some of that low down power. Gotta love those headlights. Very reliable I used the bike to commuts, country runs and fairly regular track use, never let me down. Owned for just over a year and 25,000 kms. Sadly the bike hit a Hyundai and came off second best. I'd recommend the R1 as a great bike.
Great performance and fun on the road and track. Easy to source aftermarket parts. Looks hot and sounds great. Reliable just as easy to ride in peak hour traffic as it is to ride on the track.
Lacks the low down power from the start that the earlier models had.

This bike is a recommend buy for everyone. It is a one powerful engine which makes this bike a road killer. I would even like to buy a bike like this when i have the money. I would rate this bike a 5/5
You gotta love the looks, feel, power, colour of this bike. It is very fast and runs like a thunder bolt. It is easy to handle when going around the corner. The design of this bike looks really cool. It is a cheap for a fast bike like this one.
Theres nothing that i dislike about this bike.
