2012 Yamaha R1: new Colors..but no technical updates - August 15, 2011, 12:05 PM

New colours for 2012 Yamaha R1...

...but no technical updates







YAMAHA'S 2012 R1 has emerged from the firm's Brazilian website revealing new colour options but no technical changes to the bike.
The official page shows a selection of updated colours for the Brazilian market, which may or may not be offered elsewhere. The blue version is very similar to the current European offering, but with a black bellypan rather than white and black wheels instead of gold. The red machine, with some dubious flame-and-skull graphics, is already offered in America, and the all-black model is the most stealthy R1 yet seen; black body, black wheels, black forks. Only the tuning fork logo and embossed “R1” logo provide a dash of colour. To quote Spinal Tap: “How much more black could it be? The answer is none. None more black...”
On the technical front, the bike remains unchanged. While the cross-plane crankshaft and 'long-bang' firing order still give it a unique selling point, the lack of high-tech electronics in an era when its rivals are increasingly featuring traction control, adjustable ABS and endless other widgets mean its days are surely numbered.

So the US got the unique red/black paint scheme a year before Brazil.

Interesting.

I wonder if the US could get anything else before other countries...

The R1 is the BBW of sportbikes, not that there's anything wrong with that. Some guys like 'em a little thicker. LOL

I think they should redo the naked FZ series by transplanting the current R1 engine into the series, utilize the Euro naked look with a great engine that is more than capable of delivering street/everyday grunt... Would do well, what do you think? I'm no expert but I think it would do well...

I hear this feedback a lot.... "When will the FZ1 get the cross plane crank?"

Time will tell if it becomes a reality or not.

Nobody wants your over-priced POS, nor do we want to hear your false claims. Get the fuck out.
