It is not unusual for manufacturers to launch limited edition versions to somehow increase prices for their base models. And this time, Yamaha decided to celebrate its 60th anniversary as a Motorcycle Company with a special edition of its flagship super sport bike, the R1.
The R1 Speedblock will feature a fresh yellow with black and white paint scheme.Although this is not the first time Yamaha refreshes the R1 with the ,,Speedblock”pattern, the new appearance screams ,,I used to race in the 90s” from a mile away. In addition to the new look, the Yamaha YZF-R1 ,,Speedblock” will also feature a full Akrapovic exhaust system. The new ,,Speedblock”paint scheme will be available in Europe starting December 2015.
