YZF-R1 LE - Open Class Race Bike
At Yamaha, there’s more to building a race replica than a few stickers. Introducing the exclusive limited-edition 2006 R1 LE—complete with back torque-limiting slipper clutch, Marchesini wheels, adjustable rear suspension link and Öhlins suspension developed specifically for this model—all that on top of the standard R1’s `06 upgrades. The R1 LE features Yamaha 50th Anniversary Yellow/Black paint with special trim and badging.

  • <LI class=featuretext>43mm Öhlins custom-valved fully adjustable inverted fork w/ two-way compression damping adjustment <LI class=featuretext>Öhlins custom-valved fully adjustable rear shock w/hydraulic preload adjuster and two-way compression damping adjustment <LI class=featuretext>Gold Marchesini forged aluminum wheels <LI class=featuretext>Adjustable rear suspension bottom link <LI class=featuretext>Pirelli Diablo Corsa tires <LI class=featuretext>Starter button doubles as lap timer control
  • 50th Anniversary Yellow/Black w/ gold chain, exhaust covers and tank emblems

i am sure it will be quite pricey for that model. The new ten looks like it comes with the ohlins damper.

Very nice yami but yeah, it's gotta have a Ducati price tag.

Exhaust set up also looks like the new zx only better. And all the new info show a custom ohlins damper on the new zx.

Yeah that is only $400. I would rather have Ohlins forks and shock tuned from the factory. Has a slipper clutch, and race chain also. I am not a bigger lover of the R1, but this one looks sweet.

be on a waiting list and then you have to break into fort.Knox just pay for it. when the new 10 beats this r1. then you have a bike thats all show and no go.

I was a Yamaha fan 1st and still a Wayne Rainey fan.
Moved to Honda and Miguel, Mick Doohan et all.

Loving the Kawi, we got Hayden's to root for and history, always liked Rob Muzzy and Scott Russel Mr. Dayona.

All that said I was always a sucker for the Kenny Roberts/bumble bee paint scheme.

Very nice Yami-these things are like computers now. Take it out of the box and something new is on the shelf. Pros and cons to that.

slipper clutches are expensive.

i believe it's also supposed to have some special edition wheels too.

$15K sounds about right.
