MODEL SUMMARY.

Pristine and original Yamaha YZF-R1 SP. UK registered August 2006 on a 55 Reg. 3 owners from new, 7300 miles with fully documented service history, including it’s original stamped service book, original bill of sale, service bills/invoices and old MOTs. Recently serviced.

The ‘SP’ was a limited production run with just 500 produced for the European market, and a further 500 of slightly differing spec. for the other worldwide markets, with most going to the US. Numbers 451 to 500 were allocated to Yamaha UK and identical in spec. to all the other European allocation.

This bike is number 47/500 and was sold to it’s original British owner, Mr Morrison then residing in Portugal, by Yamaha Portugal S.A. in January 2006 for the sum of 18500 Euros with the original bill of sale present. Mr Morrison returned to the UK in August 2006, when the bike was 7 months old, and then registered it in the UK. So supplied new in Portugal to a British owner, with all original Yamaha Portugal paperwork present, and registered in the UK when 7 months old.

The SP’s raison d’etre was, as with other homologation specials, a certain number had to be built with the specification that Yamaha required to race the bikes in various world series’. Each bike had a numbered plaque, demonstrating it’s authenticity, and production number, this one being number 47/500.

They were set apart by a unique Gunsmoke Blue/Black colour scheme, fully adjustable 43mm dia. USD Ohlins forks with TiN coating, fully adjustable Ohlins rear shock unit, adjustable rear ride height via suspension linkage, lightweight forged aluminium Marchesini ‘Y-Spoke’ rims in Gold, combined starter button/lap timer switch, a slipper clutch and bespoke ‘R1’ tool kit.

Based upon the 5VY 4th Generation bikes which were launched in 2004 and were the first production machines to meet a power to weight ratio of 1:1 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, and one road test achieving the 1/4 mile in 9.9s.

These SPs are few and far between, with a distinct collectibility that can only increase. This particular bike is totally stock/standard and original other than for factory approved titanium Akrapovic exhausts (originals supplied) R&G tank grips and paddock stand bobbins

In pristine condition, and with low ownership and a very proper service history, with a huge amount of documentation present, including the original bill of sale as already mentioned. All in all, a super desirable, and rare motorcycle, and one of the best of it’s kind that will be found. New MOT provided at point of sale. All books/manuals/documents/keys (including red master) present
