    Supercharged R1 HighPressure by RF Biketech

    Supercharged R1 HighPressure by RF Biketech



    Built too late for the Terminator movies, this bike would have been perfect. This is the Yamaha R1 “HighPressure” built by German tuning firm RF-Biketech. Other than the rather obvious blower and the rear tire which must be a 360, not to mention the front tire that’s pretty beefy, I can’t tell you much more about this. Their site doesn’t have a lot of information about it, but from what I can gather, many parts used on their custom streetfighters eventually find their way into the parts catalog. So if you fancy doing this to your own R1, they would be the guys to talk to.

    Handling might be a bit off, but hey, you knew that. They don’t mention horsepower numbers which could be pretty impressive plus the sound of the blower would get you grinning. Wow!

    It looks like they do a lot of streetfighter conversions on many different brands of motorcycles but this one just seems a bit more extreme than the others. Somewhere, there’s a movie waiting for this bike.





    ugly
    crap handling
    fender
    not my cup of tea
    etc.

            Gorgeous Wouldn't mind seeing some more under-tank pictures of the blower.

            Although check out the crazy amount of spacing used inside each wheel.

              Colour scheme is a little too KTM for my liking, but I'll take one.

                  Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done
                  In the backroads as it is on the freeway
                  Give us this day our high-octane premium fuel
                  And forgive us our lanesplitting
                  As we forgive the four wheel drives, the volvos and the taxis
                  And lead us not into gravel corners
                  But deliver us from hand-held radars

                    Mmm, looks sexy, though I wonder if he's using a sidestand or just letting the rear tyre hold it up.

                    So what's the girder for, exactly?

                      Girder? Are you talking about the two link cover? It's a shroud over the belt or chain which drives the supercharger from the engine crank.

                      For an R1, this is pretty good looking.

                            Doubt it. Seems like it'd put too much pressure on the cams and too much possibility of slipping, for a gain that I can't see

                              Probably so it can step out a bit, and also provide room for ze knees while riding
