The Yamaha YZF-R1S is an all-new superbike that is specifically designed for those bikers who aren't particularly interested in going for regular spins on a race track, but would rather use their two-wheeler machine for commuting and 'canyon carving', which is the practice of speeding down a mountain road as fast as humanly possible for the pure enjoyment of it all.
The third member of Yamaha's growing superbike family, the Yamaha YZF-R1S features a raft of changes targeted towards improved road use whilst retaining the engine technology, dynamics and electronic features that made the R1M and R1 so popular.
This bike will be available as early as February 2016. The particular features of this bike make it clear that Yamaha has done its homework and is really mastering the art of crafting different kinds of motorbikes for users of different stripes.
