Yamaha releases built-to-order YZF-R1 Race Base

Yamaha unveiled the new YZF-R1 Race Base, a built-to-order bike specially made for road and circuit races. Limited-time advanced orders for the new model have started and it will start building the bike from April 15.

The YZR-R1 Race Base is based on the European YZF-R1 super sport 2015 model. Since it’s meant for circuit racing, it doesn’t have the lighting fixtures.

It’s being built-to-order for orders taken for a limited time from February 26 to March 25. Orders can be made at Yamaha On-road Competition Model dealerships all over Japan.

The price is 1,994,000 yen.
