Riders for Health Yamaha R1 Unveiled

We saw a sketch of the customised Valentino Rossi inspired Yamaha R1 back in October and the bike was finally unveiled this weekend at the Cycle World International Motorcycle Show in Long Beach, California.
This special R1 was wanted Don Emde, Motorcycle Hall of Famer and Parts Magazine publisher, and will be auctioned off in 2010, with the proceeds going to the Riders for Health charity.

The livery was designed by the famed Aldo Drudi and based on Rossi’s Five Continents AGV helmet, but the R1 donated by Yamaha Motor Corp, has been customised with Ohlins suspensions, Roland Sands wheels and Akrapovic exhausts.
