  • $34,500 R1

    maybe a dumb Q, but what does this R1 have that others dont, to make it so expensive?

    thats the yamaha R1SP

    comes standard with marchescini rims

    full olhins

    and only 800 world wide, 8 in Australia, 4 in WA.
    Some say he eats sidchrome for breakfast

    Some say he only showers on even days of the week

    Some say he put an R1 motor in a coffee machine

    All we know is he's Hewie.

          Yeh wots with this shit.

          They give me a clutch thats designed to slip, rims that I cant pronounce the name of, and suspention that has more adjustments than a chiropractor!

          So on the eight day, after wasting time faffing about with unimportant guff like heaven & earth & the waters & sky & creatures [& having a wee kip] & man.... God created PSB (GenesiSX-R1000)

                        What does this mean, the 2.5 litre will kick the crappers out of a race prepared 2 litre. I had a 2 litre rex (03) and maximum motorsport bombed (rear upgrade turbo, full turboback, uppipe, intake, FMIC, ECUTEK 3 custom tuned, upgraded injectors, STi manifold, BOV, the lot) the shit out of it for me and yeah it was quick but my mate with an 06 2.5 with only a stainless turbo back, ecutek and aftermarket TMIC killed me!

                            Unless they are about to try and ride a Suzuki!

                            And Si, why buy a cage that could almost be considered quick when you can spend the money on a stonking great bike like a Honda, or an MV Augusta that actually IS quick?!

                              Good point Jacob, the bike I have aint too bad and with 164RWHP it moves along pretty nicely, infact i think i hosed a 1000RR on the country run last week from 2nd gear until my testicles got too tight and i rolled off....


                              and perhaps most importantly driving around in this crappy Daewoo is just killing me. When i sold my rex last year i was hunting around for a replacement but could not find one and needed a car to kart work crapola around so just bought a run around. Well new exhaust, head, clutch, ignitiion module, limo tint, tyres, brakes and suspension on the front end, the little cheap runaround is basically a new car but i still cant stand it!!

                              I dunno what it is but everytime i see a STi (the new shape) the hairs on my neck stand up and i go ' i just gotta get me one of those!' and the feeling intensifies when i hear the growl of the flat 4 boxer hummmmmmmmmmmmm

                              So there you have my reasoning in a somewhat longwinded explanation....

                              I tell ya what, when i finally:

                              1. save enough pennies
                              2. find a suitable second hand one going for the RIGHT money, AND
                              3. get Steve Wisby at Maximum Motorsport to once again weave his modifying magic

                              we can find some nice roads out somewhere close to nowhere and I will line up anyone who wants to run the STi is welcome to give it ago. The bet each time will be for a handful of smarties, as thehy melt in ya mouth and not in ya hand, oh thats MnMs but you get my drift.
