15 Years Old Already?! 1998 Yamaha YZF-R1

Update 8.9.2013: Originally we posted this R1 in February. It has been relisted a few times but is now showing a buy-it-now of $7k, which seems closer to what the market will bear. Links updated. Happy Friday, -dc

1998 Yamaha R1 For Sale Red White

It seems hard to believe that the original R1 is now 15 years old, probably because it still evokes a strong emotion when spotted -- especially in the white on red! With 150hp stock and 448lbs wet, it's no wonder why it was so attractive then and why it is still intriguing today.

$(KGrHqV,!jEFDrLpLMUTBRFp+)d06w~~60_3

This particular example has only 4700 miles but has been in storage and the seller reports that it will need some attention to get it road ready. The buy-it-now is set at a lofty $8500, but I suspect that is more intended to keep low-ballers out of the seller's inbox. Hopefully a realistic offer will find this bike a new home.

From the seller:

The rare one and most sought after in RED WHITE number 79. SUPER LOW MILES just 4,738 original miles. Has after market pipe but i still have the original one that came with the bike. super fast.

New ’06 Yamaha YZF-R1 LE 50th Anniversary (#380/500)

Location: Laguna Niguel, California   Mileage: 0/1   Price: Auction- $18,500 BIN

06 R1 LE

06 R1 LE

The custom Kenny Roberts paint that Yamaha released on this fine R1 and the R6 are killer paint jobs. I love them. There's a guy who runs all over my town on one constantly and I always love the way the bike looks. What we have here though is something a little more special than just paint. Yamaha built 500 Limited Edition R1's in '06 and this is number 380. And these bikes came with an Ohlins suspension, Marchesini rims and a slipper clutch, to name some upgrades, making it extra special.

Here's the seller's description-

You are bidding on a VERY RARE

    2006 Yamaha YZF LE R1

     Limited Edition

1 of Only 500 for

  WORLDWIDE DISTRIBUTION. 

 This one is number 380.

This bike should not be confused with the look alike bikes offered at your Yamaha dealer.

     This bike is one of the 500 genuine motorcycles.

                   These are the 50th Anniversary Edition for Yamaha bikes.

They made only 500 numbered bikes for the WORLD with less than 1/2 in the USA, Very Rare.

Yamaha also makes a look alike bike with the yellow and black paint but NOT the factory racing parts listed below,

 and NOT numbered--this is NOT the look alike bike.

 

THIS IS THE REAL NUMBERED ORIGINAL BIKE

 

 Some FACTORY STANDARD UPGRADES include:

     True Ohlins Suspension units Front & Rear, custom developed by the same people who work on

     Yamaha's MotoGP Racing mo6torcycle (World Champion Valentino Rossi's, with 8 Grand Prix

     Championships to his name) to provide you with the ULTIMATE in handling.

     Low weight Marchesini forged alloy wheels that are nearly 1 pound lighter than a regular R1.

                                   A 5 valve per cylinder,

                                         12,500 RPM,

                                        183 Horsepower,

                                 Dual Overhead Highlift Cams,

                                 Revised intake with Ram-Air,

                                  Dual Valve Fuel Injection,

                       32-bit ECU (for instantaneous power delivery),

                                  998cc (1 Liter) 4 cylinder

                                     Lightweight Engine.

6 Speed transmission with Slipper clutch, for smoother, safer and faster downshifts,

 20mm longer swingarm, more rigid lower triple clamp, and more rigid frame makes this the BEST handling R1 ever.

                                       Gold drive chain.

                                          Lap timer.

                       Radial mount calipers and BREMBO radial pump

                       Front master cylinder with adjustable lever.

                        Amazing braking power and controlability.

                            Sticky and wide Pirelli tires.

  These are most of the differences between a regular R1 and this Real, numbered, limited edition (LE) R1.

THIS IS A NEW MOTORCYCLE WITH 0.1 MILES.

                                    0.1 Miles,

                                    ZERO MILES.

                                   NEVER RIDDEN

    This motorcycle has been parked with a cover in a heated classic car garage with two other

    motocycles and two classic cars.

               THIS MOTORCYCLE IS PERFECT

 This motorcycle has 0 miles and has never been ridden

  The pearl flake paint glitters widly in the sun that you just have to see in real life to believe.

              All original paperwork, brochures

                                 and

              Rare Yamaha Limited tool kit included.

And pics-

So these are limited run bikes, have a cool set of upgrades, and this one has 0/1 miles. So what's not to like? Clearly this would be a great collector piece and breaking it out to put mileage on it now might seem like a bad idea to some. But it was also built to be ridden, so if that's what you choose to do, hat's off to you. How you enjoy this beauty would be entirely up to you.

if you've been looking for one, here's your chance. To make your move, check the auction!

Ride it like Russel Part 2: 2008 Yamama YZF-R1 Race Bike

2008 Yamaha R1 Scott Russell

This is the second 2008 ex-Scott Russel Yamaha R1 race bike we've seen up for grabs, and this one is reportedly the backup bike. The seller gives very little detail and Mike's questions from the other post regarding the livery still stand. This one has a buy-it-now of $12,500 and a current bid of $7850 reserve not met.

Ride it like Russell: 2008 Yamaha YZF-R1 raced by Scott Russell

For sale: 2008 Yamaha YZF-R1

Up on the block today is a Jamie James prepped Yamaha R1 reportedly raced by AMA champ Scott Russell himself! If those claim prove to be true, this one will turn out to be a pretty sweet piece of historic hardware. Interestingly, this is the second ex-Scott Russell bike posted here on RSBFS - you can see the other Yamaha R1 in this post.

While the stock R1 was no slouch in the power or handling department, the seller notes a custom-built engine by Jamie James Productions and some interesting add ons including an Ohlins shock in the rear, updated rearsets with quickshifter and full Akropovic system.

From the seller:
2008 Yahama R1
Kit ECU
Quick Shift
Ohlins TTX Rear Shock
25 mil. kit Front Forks
Brembro brake adjuster
Akrapovic full exhaust
Graves Rear Set
520 Vortec
Sharkskinz plastics
Vortec gas cap
Ohlins Steering Stabilizer
Engine built by Jamie James Productions
Raced by AMA Pro racer Scott Russell in 2008

Now I must admit that an ex-Scott Russell bike with a Jamie James built motor would probably bring in more than a garden variety track day R1. And that is where I could use some help from the knowledgeable readers of RSBFS. I know that Russell came out of retirement in 2008 to ride Daytona and a few other races - aboard a Yamaha. But nowhere can I find pics of Russell on a bike with this livery or number. It could be that the skins were changed out, and underneath the paint is the actual steed ridden by the AMA star - but it would sure help if the seller offered some additional historical data on that point.

Your chance to find out more is right now! This auction is on and the seller has set the BIN at $8,999.99 or best offer. That could be fair money if the bike has the documented race history as inferred. Click the link to jump over to the auction, and then let us know what you think about this one. Here's your chance to ride it like Russell! Good Luck!

It’s only new once: Brand New 2006 Yamaha YZF-R Limited Edition R1!

For Sale: 2006 Yamaha YZF-R Limited Edition R1

Update 3.21.2012: Originally listed in January this R1 LE is back. Links updated. -dc

For those collectors out there, here is a rare, numbered Limited Edition R1 with ZERO miles! There is not a great amount of picture detail, but the seller has offered the following information below:

From the seller:
NEW 2006 Yamaha Limited Edition R1

This bike has a true 0.0 Miles on it and is in pristine condition. It is ready to go into a collection or be ridden as it sits. Clean CA Title in hand and currently registered on non-op.

#385 our of 500 produced worldwide.

Updated with many factory modifications including full Ohlins Suspension, Marchesini Forged Wheels, slipper clutch, +3 HP, etc.

This bike cost almost $20K new and is in factory showroom condition.

All manuals, keys, riding and collector tool kits are included.

Key Features:
The R1 LE is a special, limited-edition version of our awe-inspiring liter-bike—packed with premium components in addition to the standard tremendous firepower of the R1.

Öhlins suspension units front and rear, custom-developed for the R1 LE by the same people who work on the YZR-M1 MotoGP bike, provide the ultimate ride and handling.

Custom, YZR-M1-style forged aluminum Marchesini wheels designed specifically for the LE add style while removing nearly a pound of unsprung weight.

Back torque-limiting slipper clutch greatly aids downshifting from speed, helping the rider exploit all the R1 LE’s tremendous braking power.

New for 2006:
Special 50th Anniversary Yellow/Black paint with a numbered serial plate and gold Marchesini wheels; only 500 of these machines will be produced.

GP tech trickles down: Revised rigidity of the main frame between the engine mounts and steering head, a new, more rigid lower triple clamp and a 20mm longer swingarm produce the best-handling R1 ever.

Öhlins 43mm front fork and rear shock, fully adjustable, with hydraulic preload adjuster at the rear, provide ultimate handling on the track and the street.

Slipper clutch for smooth downshifts; revised clutch boss for increased oil flow.
Shorter valve guides increase intake flow and reduce friction, for more power.

Adjustable rear-shock linkage allows 10mm of ride height adjustability; the longer swingarm accepts a greater range of rear tire sizes.

Integrated lap timer switch on the right handlebar for track days.

Gold drive chain, gold M1-style tuning fork fuel tank badge, define this special R1 as a production racer.

Engine:
Short-stroke 998cc, DOHC, 20-valve, liquid-cooled, inline four-cylinder engine.

Dual-valve fuel injection system uses motor-driven secondary throttle valves and 32-bit ECU for super-responsive, instantaneous power delivery.

Two-piece ergonomically designed fuel tank carries fuel in the rear section, for good centralization of mass, while the front half contains a Ram-Air-fed airbox for increased power.

Lay-down design cylinder head – 40° forward – optimizes weight distribution, straightens intake tracts for improved cylinder filling, and allows frame to pass over instead of around the engine for great strength and a narrow chassis.

Closed-deck cylinder block provides great strength while allowing a narrow engine in spite of big, 77mm bores.

Narrow-angle five-valve combustion chambers produce a highly efficient 12.4:1 compression ratio. Big valves and high-lift cams flow plenty of air.

Carburized connecting rods with fractured big ends produce a quick-revving engine with excellent high-rpm durability.

High silicon-content ceramic-composite cylinder sleeves ensure great heat dissipation for consistent power delivery and reduced friction.

Titanium underseat exhaust system (except for stainless steel midpipe with catalyst) contains a titanium EXUP valve for a broad, seamless powerband.

High-efficiency curved radiator and an aluminum liquid cooled oil cooler maintain stable operating temperature.

Direct ignition coils, dual-electrode spark plugs and highoutput magneto deliver extremely accurate, reliable firing.

AC generator behind cylinder block produces a narrow engine with excellent cornering clearance.

Chassis/Suspension:
Overall frame width of only 15.6 inches produces comfortable ergonomics as well as efficient aerodynamic penetration.

Controlled Fill die cast, truss-type swingarm is very strong and long, for optimal traction and feedback.

Controlled Fill die cast, detachable aluminum subframe is light, strong and allows easy rear shock access.

Dual 320mm front disc brakes; light/strong, forged one-piece radial-mount calipers and Brembo radial-pump front master cylinder with adjustable lever delivers amazing braking power and controllability.

Fully adjustable Öhlins inverted telescopic front fork settings were carefully developed by MotoGP Championship-winning technicians to provide track-tuned handling.

Fully adjustable Öhlins rear shock was also developed by MotoGP technicians, and includes a super-convenient hydraulic preload adjuster.

Additional Features:
Two multi-reflector and two projector beam headlights provide great illumination and distinctive style.

Adjustable LCD illumination and multi-function digital gauges: adjustable shift light, odometer, dual tripmeters, water temperature, air temperature, full-time clock, lap timer and large 15,000 rpm analog tachometer.

Aggressive bodywork with twin Ram-Air intakes for increased engine performance.

LED taillight is light, bright and highly efficient.

Sticky 120/70-ZR17 and 190/50-ZR17 Pirelli tires for incredible grip and precise handling.

Forged footpegs are extra durable and light.

Extensive use of hollow bolts and lightweight fasteners helps trim overall weight.

8.2 AH battery is compact and light.

Durable #530 O-ring–sealed drive chain.

Standard toolkit located in convenient storage compartment under passenger seat.

Since there were no additional pictures of this bike, I did a quick search on YouTube and found this great walkaround with commentary on bike #411:

The seller is looking for $13,750 OBO for this bike (#385). It is rare to find a zero mile bike this many years in, and the limited edition nature of this commemorative R1 helps ensure exclusivity. The price is right in line with others that we have posted, and the general concensus is that the value of these bikes will rise over time.

If you are wondering how many of the 500 bikes produced were kept in zero mile condition, you can bet it is not many. RSBFS has posted quite a few of these LE bikes, and the only one that compares to this one is the LE that was offered still new in the crate!

2006 Yamaha YZF-R1 50th Anniversary LE #260 of 500 For Sale!

2006 Yamaha YZF-R1 50th Anniversary LE #260 of 500

Location: Chandler, AZ
Mileage: 19,500
Price: $9,250 with reserve

I can definitely see myself rock'n one of these at some point before I get old and arthritis sets in. Everyone that I've talked, who owns one, says they absolutely love it and it's a rocket ship when allowed to breathe.

They look the part and I can only assume act the part with all of the upgrades that they came from the factory with. Ohlins, Brembo along side Marchesini top the distinguished list and add plenty of bling to the racer replica paint scheme.

This one is well used with 19,500 miles, but looks to be well taken care of alongside all of the fun that was had.

We can only assume that in 20 or so years these will be highly sought after bikes by those that snubbed them 5 short years ago. Perhaps these are the modern day RC30 and will appreciate beyond any ones wildest dreams. Only time will tell, but if you want to experience it on the cheap may I suggest picking one up now to avoid the long lines 20 years from now.

From the seller:

> This bike is numbered #260 out of only 500 shipped to the United States
> Bike has been meticulously maintained, with Motul oil changes every 3,000 miles
> Bike is largely stock with only minimal modifications made since its purchase in 2005
> Bike has been garaged and covered
> Includes rear stand and all stock parts
> Includes original owner's manual and "riding tips" brochure
> Slight scuff marks on upper right fairing (barely visible)
> Full Ti-Force titanium exhaust system

***ALL STOCK PARTS ARE INCLUDED WITH THE SALE OF THIS BIKE***

for more info on this machine.

Cheers!
