2013 Yamaha R1

Right after completing the 2017 season, I decided to dive deaper into my commitment of track days. I sold my cool car, and used the cash to upgrade bikes and parts for the 2018 season. During his search, I found a 2013 Yamaha R1 that only had 200 miles on it! It was completely stock with zero upgrades. This was a deal I wasn't willing to pass up. What were some of the reasons that I chose this bike?

  • I've had two R1's before and many Yamahas;
  • I love the sound of them (especially after hearing them rip the straight at PIR all year);
  • The 2013 was the 2nd year of TC, where they worked out a couple of issues on the 2012s - including the tune (great throttle response).

2013 Yamaha R1 - RDR Evolution

Day 1

Original Yamaha R1 Body This is how it looked when I brought it home.


R1 again I blacked out the factory white stripes and added my wide white stripes. Competition Werkes slip ons mounted with fender eliminator and flush mount signals.

More Decals

R1 and R3 I originally added the red stripes to bring some red into the scheme to match my colors... but then decided to go after a color matching scheme.
