MODEL SUMMARY.

WOW ! Quite a rarity and a genuine collector’s bike. Yamaha R1 50th Anniversary in Kenny Roberts colours of Yellow/Black and White with bespoke 50th Anniversary decals

2 owners from new with the 2nd owner retaining possession since 2008. Just 9800 miles with service history including it’s original stamped service book, original PDI and dealership paperwork, service bills/invoices and old MOTs. Excellent matching Michelin Pilot Power 2CTs fitted. All books/documents/alarm fobs/keys (including Red ‘Master) present

These 50th Anniversary models were based around the 5VY 4th Generation bikes which for the first time ever achieved a power to weight ratio of 1:1 for a production machine i.e 172bhp for 172kg weight (or 1000 bhp/tonne) for a ‘dry’ bike. This naturally grew the R1’s fearsome reputation with a 175mph top speed, with one road test achieving the 1/4 mile in 9.9s. The standard specification included Quad headlights, radially mounted calipers and radial master cylinder, 5 spoke wheels, forced air intake with digitally controlled butterfly valves and Yamaha CAT 2 engine immobiliser

Being a 2006 model year bike, the 50th Anniversary benefitted from a 20mm longer swingarm and revised frame and forks to sharpen up it’s overall handling characteristics. The colour scheme was simply gorgeous and most would acknowledge  the Kenny Roberts livery to be the ultimate for any Yamaha. This particular example benefits from having  Yoshimura titanium exhausts, Power Commander lll USB, Pazzo adjustable levers, Laser cut ‘R1’ heat shield, R&G fork protectors, R&G engine protectors, R&G frame protectors, R&G swingarm protectors, Aluminium paddock stand bobbins, Yamaha tinted screen, Headlamp protectors (removable) and a Datatool S4 CAT 1 alarm/immobiliser

Not many of these bikes will be found, and this particular bike sets itself apart from most of the others in having had just 2 owners from new, with a low mileage of just 9800 miles. It really is a quite wonderful example of what is a much sought after, collectable, R1 model, one of the greatest superbikes of it’s generation
