Motorcycle Style - The 2010 Yamaha YZF-R1

The bike:

Yamaha makes motorcycles with exciting and sharp design. The motorcycle takes on a more aggressive form up front with its headlight arrangement. The motorcycle itself remains one of the sharpest-looking bikes on the road. As with my Car Style blog entries, I'm only talking about how a machine LOOKS, rather than performance and reviews. If you're looking for a review on how a bike performs or something, look elsewhere. This is strictly about how bikes look.

The front of the bike is sharply styled, but I do miss the clean headlight design of the R1 between 2000 and 2008. I do miss the headlight design with the lights encased into glass. But as I mentioned, it doesn't look ugly. The side mirrors and windscreen are styled cleanly and beautifully. Two leaf-shaped signal lights are a nice touch up front. The sides of the latest R1 has sharp and fierce style. This bike may not have as much body work as the Ducati Desmosedici RR in a previous blog entry, but everything is still styled beautifully. The bike has two big exhaust pipes. Nice wheels and grippy tires compliment this fierce demon.

The bike's instrument display is very cleanly styled. You'll feel like you're piloting this thing in AMA Superbike, World Superbike, the Isle of Man TT, MotoGP, or whatever your favorite motorcycle road racing series is. The gauge indicates a redline of about 13,800 rpm with a max of about 15,000 rpm. There is a digital speedometer with a racing-spec digital readout.

The new Yamaha R1 continues the clean style and fierce appearance of past R1 models. This is the kind of motorcycle you could use to show those Honda and Suzuki riders a thing or two about what a bad ass motorcycle is all about. I love almost all Yamaha models in blue/white. I prefer blue since blue is my favorite color. Anyhow, Yamaha R1. Wicked sick bike!
