    Botw 1/24/11

    2006 Yamaha R1 LE

    In 2006 the 50th anniversary of Yamaha racing in America, Yamaha released the limited edition version in original Yamaha racing colors. The model (LE/SP) featured a Kenny Roberts replica paint pattern with yellow and black paint, and front and rear custom Öhlins suspension units developed by the people who work on the YZR-M1 MotoGP bike. Custom forged aluminum Marchesini wheels specifically designed for the LE shaved nearly a pound of unsprung weight. And a back torque-limiting slipper clutch, and an integrated lap timer rounded out the package making the LE more of a production racer.

    Only 500 units were made for the United States.

    I was just curious about this bike's propensity for offroading?

    I think it's one of the best Anniversary paint schemes ever.

    These things can take a beating too... I doubt there are many bikes still on the road that have gone through what my baby has.

    Very nice bike.
    I thought it had a little more work done too it than mentioned.
    I thought i read in another forum that it also had head work that added 3 HP and some suspension bits.

The truth is, you should consider yourself lucky if you even occasionally get to make someone - anyone - feel a little better. After that, it's all about the people that you've let into your life.”— J.D.
