omg.. i duno wat to say.. but i can say dis.. it looks strange.. in a not so beautiful sort of way.. but the engineering and technical aspect of the new r1 is interesting though..

 

forks with one leg handling compression and the other rebound.. the ram air ducts beside the headlights..

quoted straight from motorcycle-usa:

 

"Pulled straight from the MotoGP machine, and for the first time in a production motorcycle, Yamaha has fitted the R1 with a crossplane crankshaft. This design is not the "big bang" most had thought it was. This design puts each crank journal 90 degrees apart and on two different planes, verses the standard design that puts them on one plane. This makes for an uneven firing order that is said to make for a much more linear connection between the throttle and driving force. It also is said to improve torque while sill maintaining high rpm power."

at least the R1 looks much better as compared to the new CBR1K. it looks like the size of an RS125 with a litre engine. horrendous man.

 

Imagine the handling of a bike like that.... should be AWESOME!

First look at it and i thought it was photoshopped.

 

the new front design and headlights reminds me of an insect.

 

maybe for a new kamen rider series, this can be the bike he rides

When I read about the dangers of riding motorbikes, I gave up reading.
