This one’s really really special!
We do get our fair share of cool stuff to work with, but today something more rare than unicorn poo rolled in.
The limited edition Yamaha YZF-R1M’s are individually numbered and this one’s number ‘0’, as in ‘zero’. Which means it is the pre-production prototype. You normally don’t see this sort of stuff outside of hermetically sealed engineering studios or works musea. And it’s now just sitting in our workshop/training centre to be used in a video-shoot...
It really sucks we aren’t allowed to ride it nor chuck it on our dyno-tester.
