This scale model assembly kit recreates the 2018 spec of the highly successful YZF-R1M. 2018 is a landmark year for the long-running YZF-R1, as it celebrates its 20th anniversary.
The YZF-R1M is the eighth generation of the bike, released in 2015.
It was designed as a circuit motorcycle, and its design and technology were heavily influenced by data harvested from the YZR-M1 MotoGP bike.
The YZF-R1M has appeared in races such as the Superbike World Championship and All Japan Road Race Championship, one of its highly notable achievements being an astounding three back-to-back wins of the Suzuka 8 Hours between 2015 and 2017.
The Tamiya assembly kit model faithfully captures all the details of the full-size bike in every way.

Depictions of engine, swing arm, front fork, upper cowl and more are screw-fixed to the frame for maximum precision and durability.
