Very cool write up and review man!
Out of all the sportbikes out there these days I'd certainly take the R1 out of them all if I wasn't a Ducati fiend. Liked your wording on it feeling narrow and the ergonomics of it. Come September I'll get to see the true setup of Josh Hayes bike at the NJMP last race of the MotoAmerica season and get to sit on it too. Have to make sure I get a photo of that this time!

Hey Chaotic- who is your buddy you spoke about who is the Northeast champion in club racing? I may know him if he's that good and on the top tier as you stated? Just curious that's all.

I don't do too many written reviews man, I just ride so, thank you lol.

I was told today my local dealer was uncrating a R1M, I wanted to go look at it but, I didn't want to be a groupie haha.

I've now seen it in all black and their signature blue/sil/white...what other color combos will they have?

A good friend of mine is one of the fastest club racers in the Northeast (multi-time Champion) and he swapped to an R1 this year. In his first weekend on it (which was also his first time racing a Liter bike) he set his personal best at Grattan (which is his home track where he can run a near lap-record pace).

And that is without any testing/setup time. That is using some basic settings given by Giachetto.

For him to immediately get on the bike and set a personal best, on a track that he has won numerous races on (racing an SV, R6 and 750), says a lot about how good of a package it is.
Very cool man! I have been hearing similar reports from others with regards to how quick they are in standard form. Yamaha really stepped up this time.
Can't wait to see what they do with the R6!

There's also a red and white one. 3 color schemes total + the exclusive colors for the R1M.

I wish the base models had the option of the bare aluminum tank like the M. I think it looks badass!

I Ride: 2015 Panigale 1299 Base
Motorcycle USA picked the R1 as the overall winner in their 2015 Shootout, Jason Pridmore turned some quick laps on it

Sadly, the 1299 was absent - I think it would have been right there with the R1
