Yamaha has unveiled a special edition of its popular R1 litre-class flagship motorcycle. The special edition Yamaha R1 has been christened “Speed Block” and gets the classic yellow and black livery as sported by its racing motorcycles in the 1970s. The Yamaha R1 Speed Block was unveiled to commemorate Yamaha's 60th anniversary. The special edition motorcycle was showcased at the Paul Ricard Circuit in France and will go on sale in the international markets by late 2015. Apart from the new livery, the Yamaha R1 Speed Block edition will also be equipped with an Akrapovic slip-on muffler. 

 

The changes made on the special edition motorcycle have been limited to the cosmetic front and no updates have been made to the powerplant. The Yamaha R1 Speed Block edition will be powered by a 998cc, inline-four crossplane motor churning out 200PS at 13,500rpm and 112.5Nm of peak torque at 11,500rpm. The mill will be mated to a 6-speed gearbox and the bike tips the scale at just 199kg. The Yamaha R1 has been priced at Rs 22.34 lakh in India while it is uncertain whether the Speed Block edition will be brought to India in the near future.
