The all-new 2015 Yamaha R1 is arguably the most technologically advanced production motorcycle to date. With technologies derived directly from MotoGP, the R1 is no doubt an exciting bike for average riders, but racing teams especially can’t wait to get their hands on one. Take the Yamaha USA crew of Josh Hayes and Cameron Beaubier. In this video, the R1 Road To Austin, Episode 3, we finally get to see Josh and Cameron test the new R1 in Superbike trim. What’s more, Yamaha Racing Division Manager Keith McCarty joins his two riders to further explain what makes the standard and race-ready R1 so special. Check it out below.
