    well Yamaha have done a very good job of getting people talking about the new bike if nothing else.i've never seen so many people (on other forums also) talk about a new bike release so much,and it seems yam have played a blinder by keeping the bikes numbers available low,even the standard r1's are in short supply,been told of a dealer that ordered 40,was told he could have 8.just hoe it lives upto the hype,but have no doubts it will.

    Ok update- due to the demand for the R1 there may be no test models and if I do a single mile on mine then I own it! Not sure how I feel about spending 15k on something having never tried it out....

    my order is complete, just awaiting delivery schedules now, I was told by my dealer that it was 87 coming....again the dealer might have got excited by a number so it could be 70...could be 87...could be 90! the thing I know is I have one coming! :cool:









    R1M reservation complete






    Dear Will Bradshaw,

    We would like to congratulate you on your purchase of the new YZF-R1M, the most sophisticated production Superbike ever built by Yamaha!

    With its track focused specification and array of advanced electronic controls, the R1M brings M1-derived MotoGP technology to the private racer and track day rider.

    As an R1M owner you will be invited to participate in one of the exclusive Yamaha Racing Experience (YRE) events that are taking place in summer 2015 at four major European circuits.

    Each of these events will commence on the evening before the track experience with a special dinner at the circuit. The following day the YRE will take place at the race circuit, and will include track tuition from Colin Edwards. Factory technicians will be available to give professional set-up advice - and you will also have the chance to meet guests from the world of Yamaha Racing!

    Soon you will receive the password to a dedicated website. From January 15th , 2015 this website will help you to arrange your Yamaha Racing Experience.

    Once again, we would like to congratulate you on being the owner of the limited edition R1M.

    Looking forward to seeing you on the track in July!

    Best regards,
    Yamaha Motor Europe N.V., branch UK
