Yamaha’s all new YZF-R1 and YZF-R1M will be setting off on a tour of the UK next week for customers to get a close-up view of the 2020 flagship supersport models.

The new YZF-R1 and R1M were launched at the Laguna Seca round of the Superbike World Championship just last week and make their European debut at the Snetterton round of the British Superbike Championship this weekend.

From Norfolk, the bikes will head on a UK dealer tour – meaning British customers will be the first in Europe to cast their eyes on the latest generation of R1.

Yamaha Motor UK can also now confirm the price for the new models with the YZF-R1 costing £16,799 and the exclusive YZF-R1M £21,999.

The 2020 Yamaha YZF-R1M is available in strictly limited numbers with an online reservation system going live at 13:00 on Thursday, 25 July, so be sure to be among the first to check this out if you want to be in with a chance of owning the most advanced Supersport machine Yamaha has produced to date.

The dealer tour will be as follows, with details on each specific event available from the dealer:

Tuesday 23 July – Wigan Yamaha            
Wednesday 24 July – Padgetts Yamaha                 
Thursday 25 July –  Tamworth Yamaha            
Friday 26 July – TK Cope                          
Saturday 27 July – Crescent Motorcycles

Yamaha Racing Experience 2020
Yamaha Motor UK is also pleased to announce that the Yamaha Racing Experience (YRE) will return for 2020 with events at the iconic Mugello and Le Mans Grand Prix circuits in spring/summer next year.

YRE is an annual track event open to all Yamaha YZF-R1M owners, and is free for those who buy the 2020 YZF-R1. 

The event is a celebration of the awesome track capability of the R1M with factory Yamaha racers from MotoGP, World and domestic superbike championships on hand to show customers around some of the world’s greatest racetracks. Yamaha technicians are also on hand to help advise with how to best set-up the machine for track use.  

More details on these events will follow soon.
