Track riding first impressions of the 2015 Yamaha R1M
The electronics package is amazing says former GP racer
YAMAHA Motor USA has released a video of AMA superbike racer Cameron Beaubier riding the all-new R1M at Chuckwalla raceway in California.
It’s one of our first glimpses of the 200hp superbike on track and is praised by Beaubier for its impressive traction control system, which he describes as ‘amazing’.
The bike belongs to the Monster Energy Graves Yamaha team who are in preparation to compete in the upcoming MotoAmerica AMA Superbike Series starting in April.
Yamaha UK recently announced prices for both the R1 and R1M, confirming the bikes will be available in dealers from March at £14,999 and £18,499.
The higher-spec track-focused 'M' variant comes with electronic Ohlins suspension, data-logging and smartphone connectivity but requires customers to fill out an online form on Yamaha’s website.
Delivery of the R1M will take place between January and July this year. R1M customers will also get to take part in an exclusive ‘Yamaha Racing Experience’, details of which have not yet been announced.
