R1 based naked bike

So, seeing that Suzuki is turning the GSXR1000 into a naked bike, can Yamaha PLEASE do the same with the R1 for those of us who love the sound that thing makes but have no use for a full sport ride......PLEASE

Why not roll your own?
It's not like there aren't a lot of busted cross plane bikes around.

But I am with you. That thing makes a great sound.

Stop complaining and

build your own streetfighter...


P.S. If you don't know what streetfighters are,
Just google "R1 streetfighter" and go to images.
That should give you some ideas.

Here is a pic of my GSXR streetfighter

I think you are "new " to bikes?

Most point to the 93? Ducati Monster900 as starting the "modern" naked/streetfighter thing.
AND, most will not call anything out of a factory a streetfighter-which started with a trend of crashing a sportbike, losing the bodywork and sticking on flat bars.

No offense intended.

but it is a solution for OP, and it is viable and fairly inexpensive. not really paying to take stuff off a bike but to change a bike, somewhat. and its not like you aren't putting stuff back on the bike, just less stuff. and arranging it differently.

i like the idea, myself. for those who want to go nekked

I think the 1st Sportsters were about as close as you can get for a factory streetfighter .Big motor in a small package with all luxuries stripped off. They were badass back in the day.

+1 for the fz1(N)

I stripper down my 1st gen FZ1, but the 2nd gen N model is gorgeous.
It's exactly what the OP is asking for. A naked R1!

I really like the look of the blue one, but correct me if I am wrong, as far as I know they do not have the same cross plane motor, which is what it is all about for me??

Build your own. This is the 2004 R1 I had for a while that I bought wrecked and didn't bother putting new plastics back on. Super fun bike, I only sold it because it felt like something was just missing. I want to build another using a 09+ R1 with the crossplane motor.
