  • 10R is way cheaper. Looks R1 is better. Forget about comfort in superbikes.
  • Zx10r is the beast among litre class bikes..that's what I can say .. but R1 is also a good bike with its own features . 10r is best.
  • Obviously zx10R because presence of road or pillion rider seat comfort,or it is lower price then the Yamaha R1 so l suggest zx10R

Q. Is it suitable for 5.4ft person - YZF R1?
  • I am 5’5” and have had an R1M for over a year. I cannot tippy toe both feet at once, but if you can shift your bum as you stop and use the rear brake for starting and stopping it is not a major issue. If I slide to one side I can place my left foot flat on the ground (right on rear brake). I’d suggest you are very comfortable with the above before buying one.
  • At the seat height of 855mm, it would be difficult for you to ride Yamaha R1 bike. Moreover, we would suggest you take a test ride of the bike which would help you to clarify your doubts about the bikes riding comfort.Click here for the dealership: https://www.zigwheels.com/bikes/dealers/Yamaha
