Yamaha, a Japanese motorcycle giant which needs no introduction recently completed 60 years of motorcycle design and manufacturing and to commemorate the same, there will be a limited edition Yamaha YZF-R1 along with YZ450F and a YZ250F which will go on sale December 2015 onwards.
These limited edition motorcycles will feature Yamaha’s iconic yellow and black bodywork colours with the famous speedblock design. All three limited edition motorcycles will be equipped with an Akrapovic slip-on muffler.


The 60th Anniversary liveries pay tribute to the legendary riders and the winning Yamaha Racing bikes from the recent past. Most of us who’ve been following motorcycle racing for a while can surely relate to this paintjob and are bound to go weak in our knees. Yamaha hasn’t stated the volume of limited edition bikes on sale yet.
We think that by far, this is the best looking YZF-R1 that we’ve come across and it surely is drool worthy. Since the YZF-R1 is a CBU unit, even though the Yamaha India website doesn’t show the limited edition bike on sale, we’re guessing it would be possible to import it.
