It’s tough cookies if you want to order a Yamaha YZF-R1M in the European Union right now, as what is shaping out to be the superbike of 2015 has sold out in every European country.
Only those riders who pre-ordered an R1M online, on Yamaha Europe’s registration system, will be able to get a 2015 model and will get to join Colin Edwards and other Yamaha racing staff at an upcoming Yamaha Racing Experience events in July.
The new Yamaha YZF-R1M was rate highly at its press launch in Australia, an opinion that was formed in-part by the R1M’s robust electronics package, which sets a new standard for Japanese and European motorcycle manufacturers, alike.
Of course all eyes on the internet are now turning to the trademarked “R1S” name. Is there another model R1 coming around the corner, something extra exclusive over the already pricy R1M?
All of that is up for debate until we hear more from Yamaha. But until then, we’ll have to wait and see if a mountain develops out of this molehill.
