I recall reading Motorcycle USA testing the 1000's & this was the biggest news for me back then.

Then, Bike India had collaborated with MCN & there were similar reports there as well.

In , you may see how close to 299kmph do they do in 5th prior to snicking in 6th.


Found from the horse's mouth. Link

Talking Re: SBK tales - Picking an SBK, Biker style! The Yamaha FZ1

Though a bit late, let me thank you all for the wishes(after couple of failed attempts my membership was finally approved today)

Coming to the bike,have been doing regular weekend break-fast rides as well as to places in and around hyderabad(srisailam,anantigiri hills..etc).All i can say is she doing exceptionally well and don't fail to surprise me every time i take her out for a ride.
I will start a new thread for ownership experience and try to keep it updated as much as possible

@harsha : Welcome. I now handover the thread to you. Why not continue your ownership in this thread itself? It's all about your bike in here.
