The 2009 Yamaha R1 will be officially revealed Monday, September 8 at 3pm.

According to Randy Mamola it will be "tiny." It's safe to assume that the 2009 R1 will make more than the current model's 180bhp while weighing less than its predecessor's 177kg (dry) weight.

It’s also rumored that the bike will receive design and technical influence from the company’s M1 MotoGP bike.

Should be good, love the R1s.

Not as much as a certain high powered zuk though :)

Can't wait to check it out.

I don't think I'll upgrade from my 50th Ann 06 model though, unless there's significant changes... :)

No snoot. :)

I'd take the 09 R1 with the 06 headlights, and aftermarket pipes and FE (in a perfect world)

Stunning bike. Really pleased with the design of the new yamahas and hondas. I have to say that both the r6 and r1 are a lot more "cyborg" looking then the honda.
