2017 Superbike Track Shootout

For this test we chose the standard YZF-R1, but for $1,700 less you can purchase a YZF-R1S. The differences are minimal, and for the average recreational rider, the money saved could buy a lot of trackdays. At the other end of the price spectrum ($21,990) is Yamaha’s YZF-R1M that comes with Öhlins Electronic Racing Suspension (ERS) – nice!
