Model History - Launched in spring 1998 to rave press reviews, the YZF-R1 instantly became the worlds most wanted bike.
Offering remarkable value @ a list price of £9,200, Rave press reviews ensured that the R1, was a sell out.

This example was first registered on Jan 31st 1998. It is thought to be the third R1 to be brought into Britain and the earliest known registered survivor.
Supplied originally by Planet Moto of Borden Hants.
