I think I'm going to start a new business venture. I'll buy up all the 2015 R1 exhausts when they get removed, start a scrap metal recycling business, and retire a millionaire in a couple of years! That thing is huge!

i think the XJR1300 release in the states is doubtful which completely sucks because that would be my next bike hands down.

The exhaust on our bike is one of the reasons i bought it - such a great low profile design - when you compare to other supersports

Kawi ZX6r
Yami R1
EBR 1290

etc - they all have HUGE CANS.

in other news i just randomly saw on facebook via motorcyclists online - FJ09 US pricing announced (if it hasn't already?) $10,490.. Seems pretty steep compared to the FZ - wonder what they upgraded...

new r1 has titanium connecting rods, cast magnesium wheels, aluminum fuel tank, full electronics package, color tft display, 200 hp claimed, 199kg wet weight.

two r1 variants showed up on yamaha's web site, r1 and r1m. r1m is the higher spec version, $22k.

wonder if the R1 headlights are road legal or is that just a "prototype" display - they look so bad ass.
