GP Motorsports built M1-replica out of R1
GP Motorsports builds motorcycle replicas with such accuracy that even the original designers would have troubles spotting the difference if there wasn’t for some minor details included willfully. Take this M1-replica that they’ve built out of a 2008 Yamaha R1 for example. The only details that set it apart from the original thing are the “R1” logo on the fairing and filler panels below the tank.
There isn’t much left of the original bike. In fact they only needed R1’s frame on which they started to add unique components such as the forks which have been taking straight off Carlos Checa’s 2003 GP bike. There is an Öhlins TTX shock and an R7 triple clamp, just to start your interest. Racefit have crafted the custom exhaust and Dymags provided the 16.5" carbon rims.
Featuring Superbike-spec, this replica costs approximately $65,000, but if customers can live without the racing engine and TTX suspensions, the price will be dramatically reduced to around $17,000 and you’ll get the same reaction from people with enormously less costs.
The pictures speak for themselves…literally!
