The R1 and R1M is awesome. Finally, after like 6 years they finally update the bike. I think the Kawi H2 will be king, but R1\M is unique just like the S1000RR\HP4.

That's expensive. I want to see the front end in the dark with the headlight on. In this photo the front headlight doesn't make much of an impact at all. I want to see the LEDs all lit up.

That's what i like about it

it's not like it's anything like a headlight on any bike in a segment lower than it, much different.

in for pictures of seeing it lit up

The R1\M is awesome. They just made my bike list one day with the S1000RR. The price is right and up with BMW and Ducati.

I can see that... the front end looks a bit ahead of it's time, great look. Even better with those LED headlights on i bet :D

You must be alright with the looks of this bike but hoestly you dont find the new R1 a bit odd looking?
Ever since I sold my last R1 ('02) I knew I'd be getting another one some day. I never warmed up to how fat the tail looked on the outgoing generation, with those dual pipes. Looks so much cleaner now.

I agree the nose of this thing looks a bit wonky but I'm sure it'll grow on me. I never really enjoyed looking at the blunt goofy looking nose on my "08 CBR1000RR either, but when I was riding it I forgot all about it.

I could see where yamaha got its design language from and carried it on with other models in the line up. the R6 kind took on the same eyes and beak. The tail on the otherhand on the R1 had a phat ass. i mean the R1 always had my attention though but when the 09 came around that crossplane engine took it even further. Sounds incredible, almost reminds of a V4.

I didnt have much problems with that gen of fireblade except the oil consumption issues. Had to give mine up for that reason. Did you have issues with yours?

I was well aware of the oil consumption issues with some of them. I checked mine religiously and found it never burned a drop in over 11,000 miles.
