Sold Out! You Missed Your Chance at the Yamaha YZF-R1 GYTR

If you were hoping to get your hands on a Yamaha YZF-R1 GYTR superbike, well…you have probably missed your chance.

A limited production of only 20 motorcycles, the Yamaha YZF-R1 GYTR sales window was open for less than 24 hours, before the bike completely sold out.

Based off the machine that won this year’s Suzuka 8-Hours endurance race, which in turn is based off the original R1 livery design from 1999, the Yamaha YZF-R1 GYTR is quite the looker and it comes with a bevy of go-fast parts.

Those include an Akrapovic exhaust (Full Evo 2 Titanium), Brembo brake setup (GP4-RX front calipers, 320mm T-Drive discs, and 19RCS Corsa Corta master cylinder), carbon fiber fairings, Öhlins suspension (FGRT 219 forks, TTX36 GP shock), and Bridgestone slicks (V02 soft).

With a price tag of €39,500 including VAT, the Yamaha YZF-R1 GYTR wasn’t exactly the cheapest machine we have even seen from the tuning for brand, but it might be the most collectible motorcycle from Yamaha in this past decade. So…

The photos below are likely the closest you will ever get to owning one of these machines, as we don’t expect to see one for sale on the collector market for quite some time. Better luck next time.
