Yamaha Motor Europe is making the most out of Toprak Razgatlıoğlu’s WorldSBK Championship title (along with the tuning fork brand taking the triple crown in the World Superbike series), and they have something special for 21 lucky buyers.

Making a limited-edition replica of Toprak Razgatlıoğlu’s Yamaha YZF-R1, the PATA Yamaha squad is making the bikes in Crescent Racing workshop.

In addition to the track bike’s WorldSBK livery, Crescent Racing has coaxed 205hp to the rear wheel of the Yamaha YZF-R1, thanks to an Akrapovic exhaust and GYTR race ECU.

Topped off with fuel, the Razgatlıoğlu replica hits the scales at 386 lbs (175 kg), which is over a 50 lbs reduction on the stock street bike.

Brembo brakes, Öhlins suspension, forged aluminum Marchesini wheels, and titanium fasteners complete the go-fast package, though collectors will enjoy the signed tailsection.

The bike also includes a framed limited edition certificate, signed personally by Toprak Razgatlıoğlu and Team Principal Paul Denning, certifying the edition number alongside the bike’s VIN number and the purchaser’s details.

There is also the opportunity for getting the bike personally set up by Crescent Yamaha’s James Hillier or Niall Mackenzie, with one-on-one coaching at a UK circuit.

There is no word on pricing, but chances are if you are reading this, it’s already too late to grab one of the 21 machines.
